Prasad, ARS and Maheshwari, Ramesh (1978) Growth of and trehalase activity in the thermophilic fungusThermomyces lanuginosus. In: Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences - Section B, 87 (4). pp. 231-241.Full text not available from this repository.
The thermophilic fungus,Thermomyces lanuginosus, was grown in a glucose-asparagine liquid medium. Optimal mycelial growth occurred at 50°C. The conditions for sporulation were different from those required for vegetative growth. the former being favoured by lower nitrogen level and temperature. Trehalase (α, α-glu coside-l-glucohydrolase, EC 18.104.22.168) was one of the most active glycosidases at 50°C. Non-sporulating mycelium had higher levels of this enzyme than the sporulating mycelium. Trehalase was synthesized constitutively and its activity appears to be controlled by catabolite repression.
