This study was carried out to utilize wheat straw as a carbon and energy source for the growth of Aspergillus fumigatus and production of cellulases. -glucosidase and CM-cellulose activities were assayed by using salicin and CM-cellulose as substrate. It was observed from the results that the maximum production of -glucosidase and CM-cellulase was achieved by Aspergillus fumigatus grown on H2SO4 and HCI pretreated wheat straw substrate in comparison to HNO3 and HCIO4 pretreated wheat straw.

Keywords: Aspergillus fumigatus, wheat straw, cellulases
