Dedicated to the memory of I.V. Berezin and R.V. Feniksova Microbial Cellulases (Review)

Abstract

Compositions of cellulase-hemicellulase systems of aerobic fungi (hyphomycetes, ascomycetes, and basidiomycetes), aerobic bacteria, actinomycetes, as well as anaerobic fungi and bacteria, are considered in the context of the modern structural classification of glycosyl hydrolases. A new nomenclature of cellulases and relative enzymes based on their structural classification is reviewed. Some opportunities of cellulase improvement by means of protein engineering are discussed.
