Purification and characterization of cellulase-free low molecular weight endo β-1,4 xylanase from an alkalophilic Cellulosimicrobium cellulans CKMX1 isolated from mushroom compost.

Alkalophilic Cellulosimicrobium cellulans CKMX1 isolated from mushroom compost is first report on actinomycetes that has the ability to produce thermostable cellulase-free xylanase, which is an important industrial enzyme used in the pulp and paper industry. Strain CKMX1 was characterized by metabolic fingerprinting, whole-cell fatty acids methyl ester… CONTINUE READING
