Hydrolysis of insoluble cellulase by a complete cellulase from Trichoderma viride 5% cellulase incubated at pH 4.8, 50°C with a filtrate of strain QM9414 grown on cellulose medium. The enzyme preparation had 0.8 mg protein, 25 Cx units, and 0.6 filter paper (FP) cellulose units/ml and a C1 activity of 2.8 mg of glucose/24 h. (white circle) Newspaper, Sweco ball milled; (black triangle) pure cellulose pulp, Sweco ball milled, 270 mesh; (white triangle) BW200, pure cellulose pulp, ball milled, Brown Co., Berlin, N.H.; (white diamond) Whatman No. 1 filter paper; (white square) ball milled absorbent cotton; (black square) Avicel pH 105, microcrystalline cellulose; (Δ-Δ) pure cellulose pulp, SW4O. Brown Co.; (black circle) hammer milled newsprint, NEP40, Brown Co.; (white square) absorbent cotton, fibrous.
