From: Carbohydrate-binding modules (CBMs) revisited: reduced amount of water counterbalances the need for CBMs

Figure 6

Use of cellulases lacking carbohydrate-binding modules in hydrolysis at high substrate concentration. (A) Reducing the amount of water helps enzymes (round shapes) find their substrates (brown bars). (B) Cellulases without CBMs (green round shapes) can be recovered after hydrolysis compared to intact cellulases (green round shapes joint by a triangle-shape unit representing CBMs).
