Unlocking the Potential of Fungal Enzymes to Break Down Plant Cell Walls
Biomass-degrading enzyme complexes could improve biofuel production
A major bottleneck in biofuel production is the difficulty of breaking down lignocellulose-the primary building block of plant cell walls. A recent study suggests that unlike bacterial enzyme complexes for breaking down lignocellulose, fungal enzyme complexes have a more diverse functionality.
Here is the complete story.
