The β-mannanase gene, man5C1, was cloned from Penicillium pinophilum C1, a strain isolated from the acidic wastewater of a tin mine in Yunnan, China, and expressed in Pichia pastoris. The sequence analysis displayed the gene consists of a 1221-bp open reading frame encoding a protein of 406 amino acids (Man5C1). The deduced amino acid sequence of Man5C1(More)
A DNA fragment containing 2,079 base pairs from Bacillus circulans CGMCC 1416 was cloned using degenerate PCR and inverse PCR. An open reading frame containing 981 bp was identified that encoded 326 amino acids residues, including a putative signal peptide of 31 residues. The deduced amino acid sequence showed the highest identity (68.1%) with(More)
A β-mannanase gene, designated as man5S27, was cloned from Streptomyces sp. S27 using the colony polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method and expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3). The open reading frame consisted of 1,161 bp and encoded a 386-amino-acid polypeptide (Man5S27) with calculated molecular mass of 37.2 kDa. The encoded protein comprised a(More)
A phytase with high activity at low temperatures has great potential for feed applications, especially in aquaculture. Therefore, this study used a degenerate PCR and TAIL PCR to clone a phytase gene from Erwinia carotovora var. carotovota, the cause of soft rot of vegetables in the ground or during cold storage. The full-length 2.5-kb fragment included an(More)
An alpha-L-arabinofuranosidase gene, abf51S9, was cloned from Streptomyces sp. S9 and successfully expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3). The full-length gene consisted of 1,506 bp and encoded 501 amino acids with a calculated mass of 55.2 kDa. The deduced amino acid sequence was highly homologous with the alpha-L-arabinofuranosidases belonging to family(More)
The gene, xynB, from Streptomyces olivaceoviridis A1 encoding xylanase, XYNB, with a high specific activity for xylan, was transformed into potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) by Agrobacterium tumefaciens. The integration of xynB into genomic DNA was confirmed by PCR and reverse transcriptase-PCR. The gene was expressed under the control of a constitutive double(More)
A DNA fragment of 2,042 bp containing a novel beta-mannanase gene, man5A, was identified from the genome of the mannan-degrading bacterium Bacillus circulans CGMCC1554. The open reading frame of man5A comprised 978 bp encoding a protein of 326 amino acids with a predicted molecular weight of 32 kDa. The amino acid sequence of the encoded mannanase, MAN5A,(More)
A xylanase-coding gene, xynGR40, was cloned directly from the environmental DNA of goat rumen contents and expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3). The 1446-bp full-length gene encodes a 481-residue polypeptide (XynGR40) containing a catalytic domain belonging to glycosyl hydrolase (GH) family 10. Phylogenetic analysis indicated that XynGR40 was closely(More)
A new xylanase gene, xynAS9, was cloned from Streptomyces sp. S9, which was isolated from Turpan Basin, China. The full-length gene consists of 1,395 bp and encodes 465 amino acids including 38 residues of a putative signal peptide. The overall amino acid sequence shares the highest identity (50.8%) with a putative endo-1,4-beta-xylanase from Streptomyces(More)
Using degenerate polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and thermal asymmetric interlaced PCR, a 1,347-bp full-length complementary DNA fragment encompassing the gene man5A, which encodes a 429-amino acid beta-mannanase with a calculated mass of 46.8 kDa, was cloned from acidophilic Bispora sp. MEY-1. The deduced amino acid sequence (catalytic domain) displayed(More)
