Xyloglucan-specific endo-β-1,4-glucanases (Xegs, EC 3.2.1.151) exhibit high catalytic specificity for β-1,4 linkages of xyloglucan, a branched hemicellulosic polysaccharide abundant in dicot primary cell walls and present in many monocot species. In nature, GH12 Xegs are not associated with carbohydrate-binding modules (CBMs), and here, we have investigated(More)
GH5 is one of the largest glycoside hydrolase families, comprising at least 20 distinct activities within a common structural scaffold. However, the molecular basis for the functional differentiation among GH5 members is still not fully understood, principally for xyloglucan specificity. In this work, we elucidated the crystal structures of two novel GH5(More)
