Abstract: Lignocellulosic biomass is anticipated to serve as a platform for green chemicals and fuels. Nonproductive binding of lignin to cellulolytic enzymes should be avoided for conversion of lignocellulose through enzymatic saccharification. Although carbohydrate-binding modules (CBMs) of cellulolytic enzymes strongly bind to lignin, the adsorption mechanism at molecular level is still unclear. Here, we report NMR-based analyses of binding sites on CBM1 of cellobiohydrolase I (Cel7A) from a hyper-cellulase-producing fungus, Trichoderma reesei, with cellohexaose and lignins from Japanese cedar (C-MWL) and Eucalyptus globulus (E-MWL). A method was established to obtain properly folded TrCBM1. Only TrCBM1 that was expressed in freshly transformed E. coli had intact conformation. Chemical shift perturbation analyses revealed that TrCBM1 adsorbed cellohexaose in highly specific manner via two subsites, flat plane surface and cleft, which were located on the opposite side of the protein surface. Importantly, MWLs were adsorbed at multiple binding sites, including the subsites, having higher affinity than cellohexaose. G6 and Q7 were involved in lignin binding on the flat plane surface of TrCBM1, while cellohexaose preferentially interacted with N29 and Q34. TrCBM1 used much larger surface area to bind with C-MWL than E-MWL, indicating the mechanisms of adsorption toward hardwood and softwood lignins are different.
