Ethanol production by Flammulina velutipes from high substrate concentrations was evaluated. F. velutipes produces approximately 40-60 g l(-1) ethanol from 15% (w/v) D-glucose, D-fructose, D-mannose, sucrose, maltose, and cellobiose, with the highest conversion rate of 83% observed using cellobiose as...

Plant pathogens secrete enzymes that degrade plant cell walls to enhance infection and nutrient acquisition. A novel endotransglucosylase catalyzes cleavage and transfer of β-glucans and decreases the physical strength of plant cell walls. Endotransglucosylation causes depolymerization and polymerization of β-glucans...
