Infinite Enzymes CBH II is an exocellulase (Cel6A: E.C.220.127.116.11) from Hypocrea jecorina. It is produced from a recombinant corn seed production system. It will be provided as a lyophilized powder. Activity is determined using methyl-umbelliferyl beta-D cellobioside (MUC).
Cellobiohydrolase (cellobiosidase) is an enzyme present in many fungi, but particularly wood rot fungi. It is a monomer of 42 kDa with a catalytic domain and a cellulose-binding domain. The reaction adds water to the glucose bonds in cellulose (reducing ends of the chain), yielding cellobiose:
