Abstract

A strain of thermophilic fungus, Thermoascus aurantiacus, was isolated from local soil. From the culture filtrates of the organism grown on blotting paper, a xylanase, $\beta$-glucosidase, exocellulase, and endocellulase were obtained in large amounts in highly purified form by employing ion-exchange and gel-permeation chromatography. The xylanase was crystallized. The xylanase and endocellulase were stable at $70 ^0C$ for 8 h, whereas the $\beta$-glucosidase and exocellulase were less stable at $70 ^0C$
