Through binding to cellulose, expansin-like proteins are thought to loosen the structural order of crystallinesurface material, thus making it more accessible for degradation by hydrolytic enzymes. Swollenin SWO1 is themajor expansin-like protein from the fungus Trichoderma reesei. Here, we have performed a detailed characterizationof a recombinant native form of SWO1 with respect to its possible auxiliary role in the enzymatic saccharification oflignocellulosic substrates.Results: The swo1 gene was
