Abstract In the present work the genetically modified Trichoderma reesei strain QM9414 was used to produce full-length Cel7B (endoglucanase I, EGI) under the control of the constitutive Aspergillus nidulans gpdA promoter in the presence of glucose. However, the full-length Cel7B enzyme was found to be truncated to lower molecular weight components in the culture broth. Truncation of recombinant proteins produced in fungi may be due to protease activity. In order to identify major sectreted proteases, protease activity was assessed in culture filtrate of the T. reesei QM9414 recombinant. Zymogram analysis revealed the presence of proteolytic activity correspondin...
