Abstract :
N-Acetyl-d-glucosamine (GlcNAc) was produced from chitin by use of crude enzyme preparations. The efficient production of GlcNAc by cellulases derived from Trichoderma viride (T) and Acremonium cellulolyticus (A) was observed by HPLC analysis compared to lipase, hemicellulase, and pectinase. β-Chitin showed higher degradability than α-chitin when using cellulase T. The optimum pH of cellulase T was 4.0 on the hydrolysis of β-chitin. The yield of GlcNAc was enhanced by mixing of cellulase T and A.
