General description

Cellulase is a member of glycoside hydrolase family and is produced by a number of cellulolytic microbes.
This product contains cellulases, ß-glucosidases, and hemicellulase, for the application of degrading cellulose to fermentable sugars. This product is effective on a wide variety of pre-treated lignocellulosic bimass materials, for converting the carbohydrates in these materials into simple sugars prior to fermentation, for application in biofuels research.


Cellulase, enzyme blend has been used for the purpose of enzymatic hydrolysis.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cellulase is responsible for the breakdown of insoluble plant polymer cellulosic substrates into soluble sugars, mostly cellobiose and glucose. It specifically catalyzes the hydrolysis of β -1,4 glucosidic bonds in cellulose. Animals do not naturally possess the ability to digest cellulose, but do so with the help of gut microorganisms.
