WHICH BACTERIA CAN BREAK DOWN THE CELL WALL OF THE PLANT(CELLULOSE)? 

Asked by deviprasadbhat74 13th July 2017, 8:24 PM
Answered by Expert
Answer:

Degradation of cellulosic plant material is carried out by communities of anaerobic microorganisms (bacteria) that exist in symbiotic association with the host. One of the classic examples of cellulose-digesting bacteria are the Ruminococcus species. This cellulolytic gram-positive bacterium Ruminococcus flavefaciens produces an elaborate cellulosomal enzyme complex that is anchored to the bacterial cell wall and helps in digesting the cellulosic material of a plant cell.
