Single Molecule Study of Cellulase Hydrolysis of Crystalline Cellulose

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This report seeks to elucidate the role of cellobiohydrolase-I (CBH I) in the hydrolysis of crystalline cellulose. A single-molecule approach uses various imaging techniques to investigate the surface structure of crystalline cellulose and changes made in the structure by CBH I.
