Extracellular pectolytic and cellulolytic ensymes were produced in vitro and in vivo by Pyrenochaeta terrestris. Mycelial development was sparse on cellulose, very good on glucose and best on pectin. Cellulase synthesis was the same at culture temperatures from 15°C to 30°C while pectinase synthesis was optimum at 20°C.
