Production of cellulase and xylanase by a wild strain of Trichoderma viride

  author={Isidore Gomes and Joseph G Gomes and Walter Steiner and Hermann Esterbauer},
  journal={Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology},
The production of cellulase and xylanase was investigated with a newly isolated strain of Trichoderma viride BT 2169. The medium composition was optimized on a shake-flask scale using the Graeco-Latin square technique. The temperature and time for optimal growth and production of the enzymes in shake cultures were optimized using a central composite design. The temperature optima for maximal production of filter paper cellulase (FPase), xylanase and β-gluosidase were 32.8°, 34.7° and 31.1° C… CONTINUE READING
