General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been used as enzyme for alternative energy. For more information see the Enzymes for Alternative Energy Research.

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.

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).

Alamethicin is a membrane-active peptide isolated from the beneficial root-colonising fungus Trichoderma viride. This peptide can insert into membranes to form voltage-dependent pores. We have previously shown that alamethicin efficiently permeabilises the plasma membrane, mitochondria and plastids of cultured plant...

Dinoflagellates within the genus Symbiodinium are photosymbionts of many tropical reef invertebrates, including corals, making them central to the health of coral reefs. Symbiodinium have therefore gained significant research attention, though studies have been constrained by technical limitations. In particular...
