The threat of climate change has intensified efforts toward the development of safer alternatives to depleting fossil fuels (Cox et al., 2000). Lignocellulosic bioethanol is considered to be a viable and environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels. Though lignocellulosic biomass is available in massive quantities and is renewable (Dillon and Dillon, 2003; Lynd et al., 2008; Pauly and Keegstra, 2008; Kricka et al., 2015), the presence of certain barriers makes lignocellulosic bioethanol…

Draft Genome Sequence of Enterococcus mundtii SL 16, an Indigenous Gut Bacterium of the Polyphagous Pest Spodoptera littoralis
TLDR
The aim of this study was to produce a genome sequence of the strain SL 16, which would assist in understanding of the coevolution of the microbe and the insect host, and provide an overview of the genome sequence and relevant features of gut symbiotic E. mundtii.

Isolation of aerobic cultivable cellulolytic bacteria from different regions of the gastrointestinal tract of giant land snail Achatina fulica
TLDR
The results indicate that the snail A. fulica is an attractive source of cultivable bacteria that showed to be valuable resources for the production of different types of biomass-degrading enzymes.
Isolation and Identification of Cellulolytic Bacteria from the Gut of Holotrichia parallela Larvae (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)
TLDR
The results suggest that a significant amount of bacterial diversity exists among the cellulolytic bacteria, and that Siphonobacter aquaeclarae, Cellulosimicrobium funkei, Paracoccus sulfuroxidans, Ochrobactrum cytisi, and Pseudomonas nitroreducens are reported to be cellulolytics for the first time in this study.
Proteins for breaking barriers in lignocellulosic bioethanol production.
TLDR
The different categories of proteins used for bioethanol production are discussed in the context of breaking the barriers existing for the economically feasible lignocellulosic bioeth ethanol production.
Bacillus pumilus BpCRI 6, a promising candidate for cellulase production under conditions of catabolite repression
TLDR
This is the first report of a successful catabolite repression insensitivity of cellulase production by a mutant of B. pumilus, and is particularly significant when compared to Trichoderma reesei a well-known cellulase producer, which is under control of end-product inhibition.
PRODUCTION AND CHARACTERISATION OF CELLULASE BY BACILLUS PUMILUS EB 3
TLDR
Characterisation of the enzyme found that CMCase by B. pumilus EB3 has a molecular weight range from 30-65 kDa and was optimally active at pH 6.0 and temperature 60°C, and retained its activity over a wide pH range (pH 5.0–9.0) and temperature range (30-70°C).
Isolation of Cellulose-Degrading Bacteria and Determination of Their Cellulolytic Potential
TLDR
Eight isolates of cellulose-degrading bacteria (CDB) were isolated from four different invertebrates by enriching the basal culture medium with filter paper as substrate for cellulose degradation using Saccharomyces cerevisiae for simultaneous saccharification and fermentation.
Production and characterisation of cellulase from Bacillus pumilus EB3
TLDR
Characterisation of the enzyme found that CMCase from Bacillus pumilus EB3 has a molecular weight range from 30-65 kDa and was optimally active at pH 6.0 and temperature 60°C, and retained its activity over a wide pH range and temperature range.
Regulatory mutations affecting the synthesis of cellulase in Bacillus pumilus
TLDR
Putative mutants of this strain of Bacillus pumilus screened for catabolite repression insensitivity after chemical mutagenesis using ethyl methanesulphonate as a mutagenic agent were selected as the most promising candidates for cellulase synthesis even at high glucose concentration.
Cellulolytic enzyme production and enzymatic hydrolysis for second-generation bioethanol production.
TLDR
In this chapter, the progress on the understanding of the mechanisms of lignocellulose degradation, as well as the identification and optimization of fungal cellulases, cellulolytic strains, and cellulase production is reviewed.
