β-d-glu·co·si·dase

(glū-kō'si-dās),
A glucohydrolase similar to α-d-glucosidase, but attacking β-glucosides and releasing β-d-glucose.

cellobiase

an enzyme associated with bacteria and protozoa (particularly in ruminants) catalyzing the hydrolysis of β1→4 glycosidic bonds of the disaccharide, cellobiose. See also glucosidase.

The major active enzymes of the preparation were [alpha]-1,6-[beta]-galactosidase, [beta]-1,4-mannanase and [beta]-1,4-mannosidase, although it also contains several minor residual enzymes including [beta]-1,4-glucanase, [beta]-1,4-glucosidase, cellobiase, xylosidase, arabinosidase, and amiloglucosidase.
High cellobiase and xylanase production by Sclerotium rolfsii UV-8 mutant in submerged culture.
These enzymes, such as avicelase, CMCase, xylanase and cellobiase, account for the primary reactants on dietary carbohydrates and proteins (Santra et al.
2 M phosphate buffer solution) for cellobiase, respectively.
