Table 3 Rate constants and relevant parameters for characterizing and exo-cellulase

From: A coarse-grained model for synergistic action of multiple enzymes on cellulose

Nomenclature
k on adsorption rate constant
k off desorption rate constant
k offfast a higher desorption rate constant than k off
α probability for the exo-cellulase to desorb from cellulose
t hbbreak time for an exo-cellulase to break a single inter-chain hydrogen bond
t move time for an exo-cellulase to hydrolyze a glycosidic bond and slide one cellobiose unit along the glucan chain
t stay time for an exo-cellulase to remain at a certain location
