When Phanerochaete chrysosporium was grown with laminarin (a β-1,3/1,6-glucan) as the sole carbon source, a β-1,3-glucanase with a molecular mass of 36 kDa was produced as a major extracellular protein. The cDNA encoding this enzyme was cloned, and the deduced amino acid sequence revealed that this enzyme belongs to glycoside hydrolase family 16; it was… CONTINUE READING
