The present study focuses on characterization of two hemicellulases, RuXyn1 and RuXyn2, from rumen bacterial metagenome and their capabilities for degradation of xylans. Glycosyl hydrolase (GH) family 43 β-d-xylosidase/α-l-arabinofuranosidase RuXyn1 can hydrolyze p-nitrophenyl-β-d-xylopyranoside (pNPX), p-nitrophenyl-α-l-arabinofuranoside (pNPA), and(More)
A truncated alkaline β-mannanase from alkaliphilic Bacillus sp. N16-5 (MAN330) was expressed and secreted in Kluyveromyces cicerisporus. The recombinant engineered strain for MAN330 production was stable during 80 generations, and the maximum yield of MAN330 reached 3,795 U/ml in 15 l fermenter. MAN330 exhibited similar pH optima, temperature optima, and(More)
A new gene, RuCelA, encoding a bifunctional xylanase/endoglucanase, was cloned from a metagenomic library of yak rumen microorganisms. RuCelA showed activity against xylan and carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), suggesting bifunctional xylanase/endoglucanase activity. The optimal conditions for xylanase and endoglucanase activities were 65°C, pH 7.0 and 50°C, pH(More)
Two β-glucosidase/xylosidase genes, Rubg3A and Rubg3B, were cloned from yak rumen uncultured microorganisms by metagenome method and function-based screening. Recombinant RuBG3A and RuBG3B purified from Escherichia coli were characterized for enzymatic properties, and they exhibited activity against 4-nitrophenyl-β-D: -glucopyranoside and 4-nitrophenyl-β-D:(More)
The thermostability of xylanase XynR8 from uncultured Neocallimastigales rumen fungal was improved by combining random point mutagenesis with site-directed mutagenesis guided by rational design, and a thermostable variant, XynR8_VNE, was identified. This variant contained three amino acid substitutions, I38V, D137N and G151E, and showed an increased melting(More)
Alginate lyase is a promising biocatalyst because of its application in saccharification of alginate for the production of biochemicals and renewable biofuels. This study described the isolation of a new alginate metabolizing bacterium, Flavobacterium sp. S20, from sludge samples and the characterization of its alginate lyase Alg2A. The alginate lyase gene,(More)
The N-glycosylation mutants (mnn1 and mnn1 och1) show different morphological characteristics at the restrictive and nonpermissive temperature. We deleted the MNN1 to eliminate the terminal alpha1, 3-linked mannose of hypermannosylation and deleted the OCH1 to block the elongation of the main backbone chain. The mnn1 cells exhibited no observable change(More)
Some algorithms of close degree in fuzzy pattern recognition were researched and their limitations in application were found. So a new algorithm of close degree wais proposed based on fluctuation thought in this paper. The whole relation between various elements and fuzzy set was considered in the new algorithm. It could avoid that the little change of(More)
