Direct kinetic comparison of the two cellobiohydrolases Cel6A and Cel7A from Hypocrea jecorina.

Abstract

Cellulose degrading fungi such as Hypocrea jecorina secrete several cellulases including the two cellobiohydrolases (CBHs) Cel6A and Cel7A. The two CBHs differ in catalytic mechanism, attack different ends, belong to different families, but are both processive multi-domain enzymes that are essential in the hydrolysis of cellulose. Here we present a direct… (More)
