Cohesins and dockerins are complementary interacting protein modules that form stable and highly specific receptor-ligand complexes. They play a crucial role in the assembly of cellulose-degrading multi-enzyme complexes called cellulosomes and have potential applicability in several technology areas, including biomass conversion processes. Here, we describe several exceptional properties of cohesin-dockerin complexes, including their tenacious biochemical affinity, remarkably high… CONTINUE READING
