Title: Purification and Characterization Xylan Degrading Enzyme from Micelium of Tricholoma matsutake
Author: K.Kamei, Y. Fukuta, H. Onuma, N. Shirasaka
The ectomycorrhizal fungus, Tricholoma matsutake, is difficult to cultivate artificially, because the fangus has low ability to decompose polysaccharides as growth substrate, and grows slowly on artificial medium (20 mm/month). There are only a few reports for carbohydrate degrading enzymes from T. matsutake. Therefore, we have been studied carbohydrase productions from T. matsutake on a modified artificial liquid medium.
