(microbiology)
A genus of gram-positive, irregular rods in the coryneform group of bacteria; metabolism is respiratory; most strains produce acid from glucose, and cellulose is attacked by all strains.

Aerobic microorganisms usually use the free cellulase mechanism (noncomplexed cellulase systems) to digest cellulose; for example the fungi, Trichoderma reesei, Humicola insolens and Phanerochaete chrysosporium, and bacteria belonging to the genera Cellulomonas, Thermobifida, and Bacillus, always produce individual cellulases, including endoglucanase, exoglucanase, and a-glucosidase (Lynd et al.
