cellobiose


Also found in: Dictionary, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

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.

In the biochemical tests, Enterobacter cloacae and Serratia marcescens were differentiated by arabinose and cellobiose degradation, although VITEK[R]2 only evaluated the cellobiose degradation.
On the other hand, Shanmugam, Mani, & Narayanasamy (2008) reported a higher growth in this fungus on a medium using CMC compared to one with cellobiose or filter paper.

reesei STP1 transporter is involved in glucose and cellobiose uptake [48], as well as Aspergillus nidulans transporter XtrD was shown to be able to transport xylose, glucose, and several other monosaccharides [59].
Total monosaccharide (glucose + galactose), cellobiose and 5-HMF concentrations and HE obtained after acid hydrolysis were treated statistically by one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and pairwise comparisons were made just for total monosaccharides and HE using Tukey's test utilizing OriginPro 9.0 software (OriginLab Corporation, USA).
The synthesis of xylanases and cellulases is repressed if easily metabolizable carbon source like glucose, cellobiose, xylose, or xylobiose is present [12].
The strains belonging to the genus Trichosporum, Cryptococcus, Candida, Debaryomyces, Kluyveromyces have been described for producing cellulases and xylanases constitutively [10, 11, 12], and also [beta]-glucosidases when grown in defined media inducers, such as cellobiose [13].
b-glucosaminidase is sensitive to cropping systems and involves in the degradation of plant components such as cellobiose, melobiose, and chitin (Sotomayor-Ramirez et al., 2009).
(1991) previously showed low levels (0.0007 mU/mg/ml) of B-glucosidase using cellobiose as a substrate, indicating that much of the activity demonstrated in this study may be against larger or more complex oligomers.
Nevertheless, we found broad-spectrum sensitivity of the shrimp to a number of amino acids (i.e., isoleucine, leucine, methionine, phenylalanine, glycine, tryptophan, cysteine, and tyrosine) and carbohydrates (trehalose, maltose, cellobiose, and fructose) that was consistent with the omnivorous or scavenging habits of the animal.
