Introduction Cellobiase enzyme is a type of enzyme that is mostly found in Fungus such as mushrooms. It as- sist in breaking down the cellulose into smaller glucose molecules which can be easily converted into energy for the support of specific biological processes in mushrooms. Cellobiase has got the ability to catalyze the reactions in cellulose because it has the potential to easily break down the alpha linkages that joins the glucose molecules in cellulose. During the cellobiase enzyme reac- tion process, it tears down cellulose by accelerating the hydrolysis of β 1-4 glycosidic bonds that holds up the structure of the cellulose ( Sengupta, et al., 215). Just like other enzymes, the rate of an enzymatic reaction influenced by cellobiase is dependent of several physical factors such as the existing temperature, pH, substrate concentration, enzyme concentration and the presence of inhibitors (retrieved on 10/29/2019).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
