- ... Coptotermes formosanus is a well-known wood-feeding termite that can degrade lignocellulose polysaccharides efficiently with its unique multi-enzyme catalysis system. β-glucosidase (BG) is one of the important cellulases in its enzyme system. However, there may present multiple endogenous BGs in termite digestive system for various properties and functions. This study aims to characterize two BG h ...
