cellobiose

cel·lo·bi·ose

(sel'ō-bī'ōs),
A disaccharide obtained from cellulose and lichenin; a glucose-β(1→4)-glucoside, differing only from maltose in the nature of the glycosidic bond.

cellobiose

(sĕl′ə-bī′ōs′, -ōz′)
n.
A disaccharide that is produced from the partial hydrolysis of cellulose.

cellobiose

a disaccharide sugar consisting of two beta-glucose chains; it is an intermediate in CELLULOSE digestion.

cellobiose

a simple polysaccharide composed of two molecules of glucose and formed by the digestion of cellulose by cellulase.

It catalyzes the hydrolysis of arly and alkyl glycosides as well as of cellobiose to glucose which is inhibitory to the endo and exo cellulases during cellulose hydrolysis [4].
Saratale and Oh (2011) reported that the decrease in cellulolytic enzyme production at the stationary phase was caused by metabolite repression by molecules released after the hydrolysis such as glucose or cellobiose.
Altogether 12 saccharides and sugar alcohols (glucose, galactose, fructose, arabinose, xylose, ribose, fucose, cellobiose, glucitol, mannitol, arabitol, and myoinositol) were identified using capillary electrophoresis.
It was incapable of growing in the absence of NaCl and did not produce acid from D-glucose, Dmannose, D-fructose, maltose, D-mannitol, rhamnose, sucrose, D-trehalose, D-galactose, cellobiose, Draffinose, xylose, lactose, ribose, arabinose, D-melezitose, D-salicin and aesculin.

The key is the strain's ability to ferment cellobiose and galactose simultaneously, which makes the process much more efficient," he said.
In comparison with other commercially available cellulases, Accellerase 1500 contains higher levels of beta-glucosidase activity, which ensures almost a complete conversion of cellobiose to glucose and faster ethanol fermentation.
Classical mutations of the cellulase-producing fungus Trichoderma reesei, which was discovered during World War II, improved the enzymes by, for example, enhancing beta-glucosidase activity for converting cellobiose, a powerful inhibitor, into glucose.
