Superactive Cellulase for Biomass Conversion

National Renewable Energy Laboratory researchers discovery that the thermostable enzyme for C. bescii is a superior degrader of crystalline biomass compared to a traditional cellulase mixture (Cel7)/E1(Cel5) at equivalent enzyme loading. They have shown that CelA purified from C. bescii achieves a much higher extent of conversion on highly crystalline model substrates (Avicel) than traditionally used enzyme.
