  • C2730 - Cellulase from Trichoderma reesei

C2730 Sigma-Aldrich

Cellulase from Trichoderma reesei

aqueous solution, ≥700 units/g

Synonym: Celluclast® 1.5L



General description

Cellulase from Trichoderma reeseiis produced by submerged fermentation. It corresponds to a molecular mass of 68 kDa with optimum pH and temperature of 6 and 52° C, respectively.


Cellulase from Trichoderma reesei has been used:
•  for aqueous extraction of oil from corn germ
•  in the enzymatic hydrolysis of Sweet Sorghum Bagasse (SSB)
•  in the enzymatic digestion of paper grids

Cellulase from Sigma has been used to degrade cello-oligosaccharides into glucose in order to investigate the biodegradability of bioabsorbable bacterial cellulose (BBC).


50 mL in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cellulase catalyzes the breakdown of cellulose into glucose. It complexes with β-glucosidase for degrading cellobiose to glucose polymer. The lignin content in straw and furfural residues hampers cellulase production.
