Study of the effect of β-1,3-glucanase fromBasidiomycete QM 806 on yeast extract production

  • E. M. Ryan
  • O. P. Ward


Cell free supernatants, containing β-1,3-glucanase fromBasidiomycete QM 806, dramatically augmented the effect of papain on yeast autolysis. This enables the process time to be significantly reduced and/or the yield of extract to be substantially increased.
