From: Chaetomella raphigera β-glucosidase D2-BGL has intriguing structural features and a high substrate affinity that renders it an efficient cellulase supplement for lignocellulosic biomass hydrolysis

Use of the β-glucosidase D2-BGL accelerates ethanol production during a semi-simultaneous saccharification and fermentation process. A T. reesei cellulase mixture was combined with D2-BGL (a) or N188 (b) to hydrolyze acid-treated rice straws in a 100-L bioreactor. Upon adding S. cerevisiae at the 12-h time point, ethanol was produced faster by the cellulase mixture containing D2-BGL than by the one hosting N188
