In order to isolate and characterize a novel fungal strain capable of producing cellulase, each samples of the old rice straw, soil, and the old tree were screened by congo red test. One of the fungi screened has been identified as Aspergillus tubingensis strain from the results of the phylogenic analysis based on partial DNA sequence and the basis of its biochemical properties. A carboxymethyl cellulase activity of the strain was higher than that of A. oryzae KCTC 6291. In CMCase activity measurement, it wasn't sensitive about pH 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, but the enzyme was more stable than A. oryzae under the various pH and temperature conditions and the enzyme activity was more similar to neutrality and alkali. Therefore, it could be suggested that the isolated strain has a potential possibility for the developing of the probiotics.
