Paradigmatic status of an endo- and exoglucanase and its effect on crystalline cellulose degradation

Abstract

UNLABELLED BACKGROUND Microorganisms employ a multiplicity of enzymes to efficiently degrade the composite structure of plant cell wall cellulosic polysaccharides. These remarkable enzyme systems include glycoside hydrolases (cellulases, hemicellulases), polysaccharide lyases, and the carbohydrate esterases. To accomplish this challenging task, several… (More)
