A new xylanolytic strain, Paenibacillus favisporus CC02-N2, was isolated from sugarcane plantation fields in Brazil. The strain had a xylan-degrading system with multiple enzymes, one of which, xylanase Xyn30A, was identified and characterized. The enzyme is a single-domain xylanase belonging to family 30 of the glycosyl hydrolases (GH30). Xyn30A shows high(More)
