Description

General description

Sigma Life Science is 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 waste prevention when used in cellulosic ethanol research. For more information see the article in biofiles.

β -Glucanase represents a group of carbohydrate enzymes which break down glycosidic bonds within beta-glucan. It forms the main constituent of fungal cell walls and could be a potential structural and storage polysaccharide of marine macro-algae. It has the ability to degrade fungal cell walls and may be involved in defense mechanism of plants against pathogenic fungi.

Application

β -Glucanase was used as a cellulase enzyme in the combined biological and chemical pretreatment method for lignocellulosic ethanol production from energy cane. It was also used in the enzymatic saccharification of cellulose and production of ethanol.

Packaging

100 g in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

A mixture composed mainly of β-1→3 / 1→4-glucanase, xylanase, and cellulase activities. β-glucosidase, β-xylosidase, α-L-arabinofuranosidase, amylase, and protease activities are also present.

Unit Definition

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

Physical form

contains maltodextrin, silica and sodium benzoate
