Purification and characterization of a new β-glucosidase from Penicillium piceum and its application in enzymatic degradation of delignified corn stover

, : Purification and characterization of a new β-glucosidase from Penicillium piceum and its application in enzymatic degradation of delignified corn stover. Bioresource Technology 147: 658-661

A new β-glucosidase (Cel3B) was first isolated from cellulytic fungi, designated as PpCel3B. Although PpCel3B was classified to GH family 3 based on the homology sequence, PpCel3B had different biological functions in cellulose degradation and signaling molecules production. PpCel3B was constitutive and could form multiple soluble lignocellulose inducers for cellulase and hemicellulase synthesis via high tranglycosylation activity and new enzymatic activity. Moreover, PpCel3B showed apparent synergism with cellulases by removing several inhibitors. Supplementing low doses of PpCel3B (52 μg/g substrate) increased saccharification efficiency of cellulase produced by Trichoderma reesei and Penicillium piceum by 15% and 35%, respectively on delignified corn stover. PpCel3B had important application in boosting cellulase yield and efficiency.

As the applications of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) continue to broaden and long-term clinical monitoring becomes more common, minimizing signal artifacts due to patient movement becomes more pressing. This is particularly true in application...
