Measurement of Cellulase Activity with Piezoelectric Resonators


We examined the dynamics of cellulase binding and activity on thin films of cellulose by using a piezoelectric sensing device (Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation monitoring, QCM-D). Upon exposure of the cellulose film to enzyme mixtures, a reduction in the sensor’s frequency due to molecular binding is observed. Thereafter the frequency increases… (More)
