Current Trends in Research and Application of Microbial Cellulases
M. Karmakar and R.R. Ray

Abstract:
Bioconversion of cellulose, nature’s most abundant polysaccharide is accomplished by the enzyme cellulase. Cellulase, a complex of sequentially acting component enzymes are found to be synthesized by a variety of microbes. A number of different catalytic and non catalytic enzyme modules form the cellulase which synergistically acts on their substrates are reported, amongst which in some anaerobic bacteria different cellulases are organized together to form a multifunctional supramolecular complex known as cellulosome. Basic and applied research on microbial cellulases generated great scientific knowledge, their mode of action and their enormous industrial applications. Microbial cellulases are used in food, animal feed, brewery, wine, textile, laundry, paper, pulp and agriculture as well as in research purposes. The ever increasing demand for relatively non expensive cellulases and their enhanced utilization in multiple sectors of industries is the main driving force for research on different microbial cellulases.
