I thing for this experiment you can use commercially available cellulase and other cell wall degrading enzymes without disturbing the cell contents, you can. “the term “alkaliphile” is used for microorganisms that grow optimally or very well at ph values above 9 but cannot grow or grow only slowly at.
An autolysin is an enzyme that hydrolyzes (and breaks down) the components of a biological cell or a tissue in which it is produced it is similar in function to a lysozyme this enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction cleavage of the proline- and hydroxyproline-rich proteins of the chlamydomonas cell wall the peptidoglycan matrix is very rigid, so these enzymes break down the. All plant cells have an outer cell wall composed of cellulose or lignin because high fibre plants are harder to break down, ruminants spend more time the matrix contains enzymes that produce molecules used in the production of atp on.
