The strain of Aureobasidium pullulans NRRL Y-2311 (CCY 27-1-98), known as a hyperproducer of endo-1,4-β-xylanase, exhibited good growth on pectin or pectate. Growth on these carbon sources is associated with an inducible production of significant amounts of pectolytic enzymes, of which exopolygalacturonase (EC 3.2.1.67) and endopolygalacturonase (EC 3.2.1.15) were identified. The two enzymes are not produced on D-glucose or under carbon starvation conditions. The enzymes can be induced in… CONTINUE READING
