A New Enzyme Preparation Containing Polysaccharide Monooxygenase and β-Glucosidase—Synergistic Additives to Cellulases


Based on the recipient strain of Penicillium verruculosum B1-537 (ΔniaD) using the promoter of the cellobiohydrolase I gene, a producer of homologous lytic polysaccharide monooxygenase (PMO) and heterologous β-glucosidase Aspergillus niger (BG), auxiliary enzymes for the “basic” cellulase complex consisting of endoglucanases and cellobiohydrolase, was obtained. The enzyme preparation PMO–BG was obtained, containing 34% PMO and 43% BG, which was used as a source of auxiliary enzymes that increase the effectiveness of basic cellulases P. verruculosum by 20–100% in the bioconversion of various types of cellulose-containing raw materials: microcrystalline cellulose, pretreated with alkali common reed and semi-bleached sulfate hardwood pulp of Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill JSC.
