Preliminary studies on cellulase production by selected Basidiomycetes and the effect of copper-chrome-arsenate on these enzymes
1980 - IRG/WP 1122
The growth of wood-destroying fungi on ligno-cellulosic materials depends on the production of many enzymes, of which probably the most important is the multi component cellulase system. Within this system, at least three different kinds of enzym are believed to be involved in crystalline cellulose decomposition. These are endo-1,4-glucanase, exo-1,4-ß glucanase and ß-glucosidase. Most of the re...
Enzymatic study of Ceratocystis sp., blue-stain fungi on Pinus nigra
1999 - IRG/WP 99-10315
One of the main problems that the forest exploitation industry has with Pinus nigra wood is the blue-stain fungi, whose causing agent is unknown. Therefore, the objective of this work has been to study, through enzymatic tests of the isolated cultures, if these fungi infect Pinus nigra in any specific way. After the incubations, isolates of Ceratocystis were obtained. These were cultured in a sali...

The effect of Tween 80 on the growth, morphology, and enzyme secretion of Postia placenta
1990 - IRG/WP 1456
The nonionic surfactant Tween 80 (polyethylene oxide sorbitan mono-oleate) has been reported to increase enzyme production and/or secretion in bacteria and fungi. Such a procedure could greatly facilitate research into the physiology of wood-decay fungi since quantities of available enzyme are often limiting. The brown-rot fungus Postia placenta was grown in a synthetic medium supplemented with 0,...
