- ... The high-affinity cohesin-dockerin interaction was originally discovered as modular components, which mediate the assembly of the various subunits of the multienzyme cellulosome complex that characterizes some cellulolytic bacteria. Until recently, the presence of cohesins and dockerins within a bacterial proteome was considered a definitive signature of a cellulosome-producing bacterium. Widespre ...

- ... The cellulosome complex has evolved to degrade plant cell walls and, as such, combines tenacious binding to cellulose with diverse catalytic activities against amorphous and crystalline cellulose. Cellulolytic microorganisms provide an extensive selection of domains; those with affinity for cellulose, cohesins and their dockerin binding partners that define cellulosome stoichiometry and architectu ...

- ... A multienzyme complex, cellulosome, of the facultatively anaerobic bacterium, Paenibacillus curdlanolyticus B-6 was produced on microcrystalline cellulose (Avicel) under aerobic conditions. During growth on Avicel, the bacterial cells were found to be capable of adhesion to Avicel by scanning electron microscopic (SEM) analysis. The multienzyme complex of P. curdlanolyticus B-6 was isolated from t ...
