Abstract
A novel bgl1 gene, encoding GH3 family β-glucosidase from Penicillium verruculosum (PvBGL), was cloned and heterologously expressed in P. canescens RN3-11-7 (niaD-) strain under the control of the strong xylA gene promoter. The recombinant rPvBGL was purified and their properties were studied in comparison with those of rAnBGL from Aspergillus niger expressed previously in the same fungal host. The rPvBGL had an observed molecular mass of 90 kDa (SDS-PAGE data) and displayed the enzyme maximum activity at pH 4.6 and 65 °C. The enzyme half-life time at 60 oC was found to be 87 min. Unlike the rAnBGL, the rPvBGL was not adsorbed on microcrystalline cellulose, which gives the latter enzyme an advantage in cellulose conversion with a longer time of hydrolysis.
