Gabby the Grape and her daughter, Gracie Grape, (Endo-1,4-β-glucanase) were excited to sit outside until they began to feel the heat negatively impact their outer layer.
It's hot outside and I'm starting to sweat.
As the heat grew drastically uncomfortable, they began to look for a plant source to provide shade.

Mommy, it's hot outside.
The biomass conversion processes are highly dependent on the use of efficient enzymes to degrade polymeric cellulose to simple saccharides. Saccharides are sugars that can be fermented by microorganisms order to produce valuable fuel and chemicals.
Hey Mom! I found some high purity cellulose.
Gabby and Gracie are enjoying the shade, when it suddenly begins to rain. Gabby and Gracie break down cellulose by attacking the amorphous regions to produce more accessible new free chain ends for the action of cellobiohydrolases.
Does rain influence our enzyme activity?
The chemical reaction created between the Endo-1,4-β-glucanase and the combination of water and heat transformed the enzyme Endo-1,4-β-glucanase to an oligosaccharide.
Hi! I am Oswald the Oligosaccharide.
Oligosaccharide is a saccharide polymer that often plays an important role in increasing yield of fruit juices. The enzyme is now ready for human consumption and will eventually return to the soil.
