In the previous paper, it was reported that the higher molecular weight luteose which consisted of β-1,6-linked d-glucose units was made by Pen. aculeatutn var. apiculatum. The isolation of the microorganism which is able to produce β-d-1,6-glucanase and some properties of this glucanase were described in this paper. The optimum reaction temperature for this enzyme was at about 40°C, and the optimum pH was at about 6.7. At the maximum degree of the hydrolysis, only d-glucose and gentiobiose…

The enzymic degradation of an alkali-soluble glucan from the cell walls of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
TLDR
An alkali-soluble glucan from the cell walls of Saccharomyces cerevisiae NCYC1109 has been hydrolysed with a purified endo-(1 leads to 3)-beta-D-glucanase and an endosaccharide from Bacillus circulans WL-12, giving new information on the fine structure of the glucan.
Fungal Glucans — Structure and Metabolism
Glucans constitute important structural or skeletal components of the cell envelope of yeasts and filamentous fungi. Isolation of individual glucan components and elucidation of their chemical
Taxonomic Significance of Yeast Sphaeroplast Release after Enzymic Treatment of Intact Cells
TLDR
The ability of yeast cells to liberate sphaeroplasts following appropriate enzymic treatment is proposed as a taxonomic criterion for differentiating basidiomycetos from ascomycetous yeasts and for classifying fungi imperfecti yeasts.

β-D-1,6-Glucanase in Micro-organism

β-d-1,6-GLUCANASES IN FUNGI
β-D-1,6-Glucans apparently occur rarely in nature, yet many fungi are able to produce an enzyme capable of hydrolyzing them. The β-1,6-glucanases tend to be constitutive enzymes, similar in this
beta-D-1, 2-Glucanases in fungi.
TLDR
It is shown that enzymatic hydrolysis of the β-1,2-glucan is random, a series of β-2-linked oligosaccharides, including sophorose, being formed.
β-D-1, 3 GLUCANASES IN FUNGI
β-D-1,3 Glucanases are of common occurrence in fungi, being detected in the culture nitrates of 96% of the organisms tested in shake flasks and in the sporophores of six basidiomycetcs. The enzyme ...
STUDIES ON AUTOLYSIS OF ASPERGILLUS ORYZAE. THE LYTIC PHENOMENON OF ASPERGILLUS ORYZAE CAUSED BY BACILLUS CIRCULANS.
TLDR
The substance, which acted on the mycelial cells of Asp, oryzae, was found in the culture fluid of a newly isolated bacterial strain, and it seems that the polysaccharide is a cementing and coating material of the network of chitin fiber of the cell-walls.
