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 enhanced for energy efficiency and waste prevention when used in cellulosic ethanol research. For more information see the article in biofiles and Enzymes for Alternative Energy Research.


Driselase from Basidiomycetes has been used in a study to assess the digestion by fungal glycanases of arabinoxylans with different feruloylated side-chains. Driselase from Basidiomycetes has also been used in a study to investigate the purification, characterization, and mode of action of a rhamnogalacturonan hydrolase.
The enzyme from Sigma has been used as a control while testing the ability of p-coumaroyl esterase to release p-coumaroyl and feruloyl groups from intact cell walls. It has also been used in the protoplast preparation from mycelia during a study to investigate the pathogenicity of Cochliobolus carbonum on Maize.


1, 5, 25 g in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Driselase is a cell wall degrading enzyme that contains cellulase, hemicellulase, pectinase etc. Therefore, it is very effective in removing plant cell walls to make protoplasts.

Other Notes

Crude powder containing laminarinase, xylanase and cellulase.
