Digestion of Carbon Materials By Pectolytic and Celluloytic Enzymes of Fusarium Moniliforme Sheld
A. E. Arinze, A. G. Yubedee
KEYWORDS: Digestion, polygalacturonase, cellulases, reducing sugars.
ABSTRACT:Apple pectin. and sodium polypectate supported ttie production of polygalacturonases by Fusarit1m moniliforme Sheld whil_e filter paper and carboxymethyl cellulose supported the production of cellulases. Glucose and starch did not support the production of either polygalacturonase or cellulases Reducing sugars were released from sodium polypectate in higher quantity than from apple pectin while more sugars were released from filter paper than from carboxymethyt cellulose by· cellulases. Extracellular enzymes from an isolate of F moniliforme, Fm-1 released more reducing sugars than another isolate designated Fm-2.
