It is high time that we find a replacement for the traditional fossil fuels with other suitable and renewable energy. The world is anxiously waiting and watching to hear more about what the scientists have to say about their latest new protein probes, which are reported to have helped them to discover the most excellent microbial enzymes, which will break down cellulose and help to convert the biomass into biofuels like ethanol.
This is going to be a landmark discovery as the new protein probes will make it possible to come up with the most excellent biomass to biofuel production enzymes that we can find in nature. It is from the stop working of the primary component of the energy enriched constituent of plant substance, the cellulose, which helps to turn biomass into biofuels. The Cellulose, a polysaccharide, or, in other words, is made up of “different kinds of sugars” which are closely packed together. In order to make biofuels production possible from the cellulose, the different sugars have to be broken to be further processed like fermenting them to make ethanol. Since breaking of these closely bonded sugars is not easy the best agent for this task is a group of microbe-generated enzymes known as Glycoside Hydrolases or even it is termed as GHs.
