Understanding how the complex molecular architecture of mannan-degrading hydrolases contributes to plant cell wall degradation.

Microbial degradation of plant cell walls is a central component of the carbon cycle and is of increasing importance in environmentally significant industries. Plant cell wall-degrading enzymes have a complex molecular architecture consisting of catalytic modules and, frequently, multiple non-catalytic carbohydrate binding modules (CBMs). It is currently… CONTINUE READING
