    Abstract

    The xylanolytic enzyme system of Trichoderma reesei, a well-known producer of cellulolytic enzymes, is versatile and well suited for the total hydrolysis of different xylans. It consists of two major, specific and several non-specific xylanases, at least one β-xylosidase, α-arabinosidase and α-glucuronidase and at least two acetyl esterases. The hydrolysis of polymeric xylans starts by the action of endoxylanases. The side-group-cleaving enzymes have their highest activities towards soluble, short xylo-oligosaccharides, and make the substituted oligosaccharides again accessible for xylanases and β-xylosidase.
