Characterization of cellulase and xylanase activities of Streptomyces lividans

  journal={Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology},
The production of cellulases and of xylanase by Streptomyces lividans 1326 was studied under different growth conditions. The strain grew between 18°C and 46°C and is therefore thermotolerant. Submerged cultures of the microorganism, when grown on a defined salt medium containing xylan as main carbon source, exhibited an overall cellulolytic activity as determined by the filter paper test. S. lividans produced optimal levels of extracellular β-1,4-glucan-glucanohydrolase (1 IU/ml) and large… CONTINUE READING
