New publication in Biotechnology for Biofuels and Bioproducts

Insights into the action of phylogenetically diverse microbial expansins on the structure of cellulose microfibrils has been published by our project partners Majid Haddad Momeni, Salla Hiltunenm Janak Sapkota and Emma R. Master.

Microbial expansins with different modular structure were shown to increase interfibrillar spacing of cellulose microfibers and performance of enzymes that act on fiber surfaces. This study uncovers new possibilities for biocatalysts to create value-added materials from cellulosic biomass.
