Enzymes for Research, Diagnostic and Industrial Use

Native Aspergillus niger Cellulase

Cat No.
NATE-0118
Description
Cellulase is any of several enzymes produced chiefly by fungi, bacteria, and protozoans that catalyze cellulolysis, the decomposition of cellulose and of some related polysaccharides; specifically, the hydrolysis of the 1,4-beta-D-glycosidic linkages in cellulose, hemicellulose, lichenin, and cereal beta-D-glucans. Cellulases break down the cellulose molecule into monosaccharides ("simple sugars") such as beta-glucose, or shorter polysaccharides and oligosaccharides. The name is also used for any naturally occurring mixture or complex of various such enzymes, that act serially or synergistically to decompose cellulosic material.
Abbr
Cellulase, Native (Aspergillus niger)
Alias
Cellulase
Source
Aspergillus niger
Applications
Cellulase has been used to study the ability of several of its possible substrates, cellulose, Avicel PH-101, and filter paper, to protect enzyme activity during monogastric diegstion in animal and avian digestive tracts. The enzyme has also been approved as a secondary direct food additive as an aid in clam and shrimp processing.
Product Overview
The FDA recognizes cellulase from A. niger as GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) if non-pathogenic and non-toxigenic strains, as well as current good manufacturing practices, are used in production.
