Cellulase refers to a class of enzymes produced chiefly by fungi, bacteria, and protozoans that catalyse the cellulolysis (or hydrolysis) of cellulose. The immense potential that cellulases have in biotechnology is the driving violence for continuous basic and applied inquiry on these biocatalysts from fungi and bacteria. Cellulases are cast in many fields, such as animal feeding, brewery and wine, food, textile and laundry, pulp and paper products. The expanding interest toward the conversion of lignocellulosic biomass into fermentable sugars has generated every additional request for cellulases and their related enzymes. This book presents research in the study of cellulase, including biotechnological applications of microbial cellulases; using agro-pertaining by-products as raw material on account of cellulase production; and, the enzyme saccharification of cereal clip residues using dilute alkali pre-handling.
