Termites play an important role in the degradation of cellulose materials in nature, and special attention is paid to the activity and expression of termite cellulases. The purpose of the research is to study the cellulatic enzyme activity of termites. At the same time, the activity of enzymes from different parts of the body of termites was studied.
