Pseudomonas cellulose-binding domains mediate their effects by increasing enzyme substrate proximity.


To investigate the mode of action of cellulose-binding domains (CBDs), the Type II CBD from Pseudomonas fluorescens subsp. cellulosa xylanase A (XYLACBD) and cellulase E (CELECBD) were expressed as individual entities or fused to the catalytic domain of a Clostridium thermocellum endoglucanase (EGE). The two CBDs exhibited similar Ka values for bacterial… (More)
