Abstract

Wild Neurospora crassa (Ema) showed highest cellulase activity (0.063 IU) followed by mutants trp 101 (0.055) and leu 299 (0.024). In case of xylanase activity, mutant leu 299 showed highest (0.323) followed by wild (0.310) and mutant trp 101 (0.259).

Key words: Neurospora crassa; Mutants; Cellulase activity; Xylanase activity
