A cellulose-digesting enzyme from a fungus.

This is an image of the cellulose-digesting enzyme from the fungus Trichoderma reesei. The cellulose crystal that the enzyme is digesting is shown in green. The enzyme's carbohydrate-binding module is to the left; the flexible linker is yellow. This enzyme is of interest for use in biofuel production.
