Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cellulase from Aspergillus niger catalyzes the hydrolysis of endo-1,4-β-D-glycosidic linkages in cellulose, lichenin, barley glucan, and the cellooligosaccharides cellotriose to cellohexaose. It does not cleave cellobiose or p-nitrophenyl-β-D-glucoside. This enzyme will also cleave intact glycosaminoglycan from a core peptide by hydrolyzing the xylosyl serine linkage.
