Engineered Hydrolases for Biofuel Production from Cellulosic Biomass
Cellulases with mutations to supercharge the CBM (D3, D4) degrade 2.5-fold more cellulose after 48 hours at elevated temperatures
Cellulosic biomass is a substantial fuel source with ~200 billion tons of plant biomass produced yearly. However, releasing sugars from biomass by enzymatic degradation using Carbohydrate Active...
