- ... Processive glycoside hydrolases associate with recalcitrant polysaccharides such as cellulose and chitin and repeatedly cleave glycosidic linkages without fully dissociating from the crystalline surface. The processive mechanism is efficient in the degradation of insoluble substrates, but comes at the cost of reduced enzyme speed. We show that less processive chitinase variants with reduced abilit ...
