Specific activity:
~ 65 U/mg (40oC, pH 4.5 on CM-cellulose 4M).

Unit definition:
One Unit of cellulase activity is defined as the amount of enzyme required to release one μmole of glucose reducing-sugar equivalents per minute from CM-Cellulose 4M (10 mg/mL) in sodium acetate buffer (100 mM), pH 4.5 at 40oC.

Specificity:
endo-hydrolysis of (1,4)-β-D-glucosidic linkages in cellulose.

Applications:
Applications established in diagnostics and research within the textiles, food and feed, carbohydrate and biofuels industries.
