Bioethanol has been considered as a promising source of renewable energy not only Brazil, which has high capacity of biofuel production, but in the whole world. This interest has grown thanks to new techniques that produce ethanol by biomass degradation (second generation bioethanol). The key to the success of this technique is to use a set of lignocellulolytic enzymes that, in synergy,...
Glycoside hydrolases (GH) are enzymes able to cleave the glycosidic bonds of different types of carbohydrates found in nature. Thanks to their activity, they became a research target in the production of second-generation ethanol. In this process, the fermentable sugars come from the breakdown of the polysaccharides present in the cell wall of plants. Since these polysaccharides form an...
