Comparative Quantitative Physiology of High Cellulase Producing Strains of Trichoderma Reesei
Both batch culture and two-stage continuous culture systems were employed to study the growth characteristics, cellulase productivity, the specific rates of nutrient assimilation, and metabolic regulation related to the cellulase biosynthesis. Four mutant strains of Trichoderma reesei studied were designated as QM 6a, QM 9414, C 30 (7) and MCG 77 (3). These strains were then compared in terms of specific enzyme productivity, the nutrient requirements and economics, the nature of cellulase components, and the stability and utilization efficiency of cellulase.
