cex (P07986) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis
Enzyme Classification 18.104.22.168
Also Known as GUX_CELFI, cex, xynB
Hydrolyzes both cellulose and xylan. Has also weak endoglucanase activity., The biological conversion of cellulose to glucose generally requires three types of hydrolytic enzymes: (1) Endoglucanases which cut internal beta-1,4-glucosidic bonds; (2) Exocellobiohydrolases that cut the disaccharide cellobiose from the non-reducing end of the cellulose polymer chain; (3) Beta-1,4-glucosidases which hydrolyze the cellobiose and other short cello-oligosaccharides to glucose.
