Properties of a Newly Identified Esterase from Bacillus sp. K91 and Its Novel Function in Diisobutyl Phthalate Degradation
The findings present a novel DiBP degradation enzyme and indicate that the purified enzyme may be a promising candidate for DiBP detoxification and for environmental protection.
Metagenomic analysis of the Rhinopithecus bieti fecal microbiome reveals a broad diversity of bacterial and glycoside hydrolase profiles related to lignocellulose degradation
Metagenomic and functional analysis demonstrated that R. bieti possesses a broad diversity of bacteria and numerous glycoside hydrolases responsible for lignocellulosic biomass degradation which might reflect the adaptations associated with a diet rich in fibrous matter.
Isolation and characterization of a new keratinolytic bacterium that exhibits significant feather-degrading capability
Potential biotechnological applications of this bacterium that involve hydrolysis of keratin, including the improvement of the nutritional properties of feathers (and other keratins) used as supplementary feedstuffs are suggested.
Molecular and Biochemical Characterization of a Novel Xylanase from Massilia sp. RBM26 Isolated from the Feces of Rhinopithecus bieti.
This paper is the first to report a xylanase (XynRBM26) belonging to the glycosyl hydrolase family (GH10) from the genus Massilia with salt tolerance, which could maintain 86% activity in 5 M NaCl, and is applicable to high-salt food and seafood processing, as well as other high-Salt environmental biotechnological fields.
Metagenomic Analysis of the Pygmy Loris Fecal Microbiome Reveals Unique Functional Capacity Related to Metabolism of Aromatic Compounds
The comparative analysis of function classification revealed that the metagenome of the pygmy loris was characterized by an overrepresentation of those sequences involved in aromatic compound metabolism compared with humans and other animals.
Heterologous expression and characterization of a malathion-hydrolyzing carboxylesterase from a thermophilic bacterium, Alicyclobacillus tengchongensis
A carboxylesterase gene from thermophilic bacterium was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3) and has a potential use for the detoxification of malathion residues.
Cloning and Overexpression of Gene Encoding the Pullulanase from Bacillus naganoensis in Pichia pastoris
This is the first report on the successful expression of the pullulanase from B. naganoensis in P. pastoris.

This paper is the first to report a cold-active and/or NaCl-tolerant exo-inulinase from the genus Arthrobacter and the resultant 505-residue polypeptide rInuAMN8 shows a potential for use in the production of fructose at low temperatures.
Molecular and biochemical characterizations of a new low-temperature active mannanase
The experiments of biochemical characterization verified that the purified recombinant ManAGN25 is a low-temperature active mannanase: the enzyme showed apparently optimal activity at 35–40 °C and retained 78.0 % of its maximum activity when assayed at 30, 20, and 10 ° C.
Improving the Thermostability of Rhizopus chinensis Lipase Through Site-Directed Mutagenesis Based on B-Factor Analysis
The results indicate that novel mutant lipases with enhanced thermostability useful for industrial applications can be predicted based upon B-factor analysis and constructed via site-directed mutagenesis.
