Basic Knowledge before buying Cellulase

Cellulase is one of the enzymes, which plays a biocatalytic role in the decomposition of cellulose. Cellulose is a protein that breaks down cellulose into oligosaccharides or monosaccharides.

Cellulase exists widely in natural organisms. Cellulase can be produced in bacteria, fungi and animals. The cellulase commonly used for production comes from fungi, typically Trichoderma, Aspergillus and Penicillium.

Because the strains producing cellulase are easy to degenerate, the ability to produce cellulase decreases. The production of cellulase by bacteria is less, mainly dextran endonuclease. Most of the enzymes produced are non-degradable to crystalline cellulose, and most of them are intracellular enzymes or adsorbed on the cell wall. They are not secreted to the culture medium, so the extraction and purification are increased. Because of the difficulty, there is little research on bacteria. But the optimum pH of cellulase produced by bacteria is neutral to alkaline. In the past 20 years, with the successful application of neutral cellulase and alkaline cellulase in cotton fabric washing and finishing process and detergent industry, bacterial cellulase preparation has shown good application prospects.

Cellulase is also widely used in food industry and environmental industry. In alcoholic fermentation, the addition of cellulase can increase the utilization of raw materials and improve the quality of liquor.
