The extent of filter paper degradation by extracellular preparations fromT. reesei and its mutants with a decreasing level of β-glucosidase and an increasing level of endoglucanase has been determined. The ability to degrade cellulose is restricted by the level of endoglucanase and not by β-glucosidase.
