Interactions between exo-cellulase and cellulose crystal. Schematic representation of (a) an exo-R cellulase adsorbed to the cellulose surface followed immediately by the breaking of hydrogen bonds between the monomers covered by the cellulase and (b) the processivity of the glucan chain by an exo-R cellulase; it comprises the hydrolysis of the glycosidic bond and cellulase directed movement along the chain.
