Isolation of Paenibacillus sp. and Variovorax sp. strains from decaying woods and characterization of their potential for cellulose deconstruction.
Prospection of cellulose-degrading bacteria in natural environments allows the identification of novel cellulases and hemicellulases that could be useful in second-generation bioethanol production.Expand

GH10 XynA is the main xylanase identified in the crude enzymatic extract of Paenibacillus sp. A59 when grown on xylan or lignocellulosic biomass.
A novel bacterial isolate with polysaccharides degrading activity was identified as Paenibacillus sp., and named Paenibacillus sp. A59. Even though it is a strict mesophile, optimal xylanase activityExpand

A thermostable GH8 endoglucanase of Enterobacter sp. R1 is suitable for β-glucan deconstruction.
Glycoside hydrolase family 8 (GH8) includes endoglucanases, lichenases, chitosanases and xylanases, which are essential for polysaccharides breakdown. In this work, we studied a thermally stable GH8Expand

Secretome profile of Cellulomonas sp. B6 growing on lignocellulosic substrates
Lignocellulosic biomass deconstruction is a bottleneck for obtaining biofuels and value‐added products. Our main goal was to characterize the secretome of a novel isolate, Cellulomonas sp. B6, whenExpand

Neotropical termite microbiomes as sources of novel plant cell wall degrading enzymes
In this study, we used shotgun metagenomic sequencing to characterise the microbial metabolic potential for lignocellulose transformation in the gut of two colonies of Argentine higher termiteExpand

Paenibacillus xylanivorans sp. nov., a xylan-degrading bacterium isolated from decaying forest soil.
A xylanolytic bacterial strain, named A59T, was isolated from a forest soil consortium in southern Argentina. Strain A59T is a Gram-stain-positive, facultative anaerobic, endospore-forming andExpand

EcXyl43 β-xylosidase: molecular modeling, activity on natural and artificial substrates, and synergism with endoxylanases for lignocellulose deconstruction
Biomass hydrolysis constitutes a bottleneck for the biotransformation of lignocellulosic residues into bioethanol and high-value products. The efficient deconstruction of polysaccharides toExpand
