Streptomyces flavogriseus produced considerable amounts of xylanase when grown on xylan containing media. Comparatively lower yields of this enzyme were obtained when hay or avicel served as main carbon source, β-xylosidase was synthesized intracellularly and appeared less dependent on the fermentation substrate. The strain produced simultaneously various enzymes of the cellulase complex and the xylose induced glucose isomerase. References
