General description

Manufactured by Yakult
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

Application

Cellulases are enzymes that hydrolyze cellulose to glucose. Cellulase is used to study the development of occupational asthma in the detergent, pharmaceutical, baking, and enzyme production industries. Cellulase is added to detergents to improve cleansing properties. Cellulase from Sigma has been used to degrade cello-oligosaccharides into glucose while investigating the biodegradability of bioabsorbable bacterial cellulose (BBC).

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cellulases are produced by the intestinal flagellates of termites which are important for cellulose digestion of their host termites . Cellulases have different microbial origins and therefore different protein sequences .

Unit Definition

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

Preparation Note

Dissolves in sterile deionized (DI) water in the presence of 0.15 polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB) at 3 mg/mL concentration.
