Description

Packaging

5000, 10000 units in poly bottle

Unit Definition

One unit will liberate 1.0 μmole of glucose from cellulose in one hour at pH 5.0 at 37 °C (2 hr incubation time).

Application

Cellulase (β-1,4-glucanase) is a natural enzyme produced by the filamentous fungi Trichoderma viride which promotes the endohydrolysis of (1->4)-beta-D-glucosidic linkages in cellulose and lichenin. Cellulases are important for processing potential commercial products such as cellulosic ethanol.
