  • Amylases and cellulases are important enzymes both for the global carbon cycle on earth and for biotechnical applications. They are capable of degrading polysaccharides, which are chemically simple polymers of repeating glucose units that form very complex and water-insoluble macroscopic structures. The enzymatic degradation of starch and cellulose is poorly understood at the molecular level. The cloning and DNA sequence determination of amylaseand cellulase-encoding genes from various… CONTINUE READING
