Utilization of β-Glucosidase from Aspergillus Species in the Hydrolysis of Cellulose
The batch hydrolysis of cellulose by Trichoderma reesei cellulase was found to be considerably enhanced by the addition of very small amounts of β-glucosidase derived from Aspergillus niger. Addition of larger amounts had no further effect. In simultaneous cellulose hydrolysis and alcohol fermentation experiments the addition of β-glucosidase from A. niger had no significant effect on alcohol production by the fermenting yeast.
