Abstract

In connection with the conversion of cellulose to glucose, several fungal isolates obtained from air, decaying plant debris and other sources were screened for their ability to produce cellulases both in liquid cultures and by solid state fermentations. Of 23 isolates which showed significant activity, only Penicillium sp. and Aspergillus oryzae gave consistently high enzyme titres. A strain of Sporotrichum pulverulentum degraded cellulose and released large quantity (1720 g/ml) of reducing sugars into the medium.
