  • 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 GH8 from the cellulose synthase complex of Enterobacter sp. R1, for deconstruction of β-glucans. The biochemical characterization of the recombinant GH8ErCel showed high specificity towards barley β-glucan and lichenan and lower activity on carboxymethylcellulose and swollen cellulose, yielding… CONTINUE READING
