ABSTRACT Cellulosilyticum ruminicola H1 is a newly described bacterium isolated from yak (Bos grunniens) rumen and is characterized by its ability to grow on a variety of hemicelluloses and degrade cellulosic materials. In this study, we performed the whole-genome sequencing of C. ruminicola H1 and observed a comprehensive set of genes encoding the enzymes essential for hydrolyzing plant cell wall. The corresponding enzymatic activities were also determined in strain H1; these included… Expand
Transcriptome and Zymogram Analyses Reveal a Cellobiose-Dose Related Reciprocal Regulatory Effect on Cellulase Synthesis in Cellulosilyticum ruminicola H1
TLDR
A cellobiose-dose related regulatory mechanism of cellulase synthesis by lower for induction and higher for repression is revealed, which has extended the understanding of the regulation of microbial cellulose synthesis. Expand
Three Feruloyl Esterases in Cellulosilyticum ruminicola H1 Act Synergistically To Hydrolyze Esterified Polysaccharides
TLDR
It is proposed that the three feruloyl esterases work in concert to hydrolyze ferulate esters in natural hemicelluloses. Expand
Structural Features of a Bacteroidetes-Affiliated Cellulase Linked with a Polysaccharide Utilization Locus
TLDR
Interestingly, the structure and function of this enzyme seem adapted to less-substituted substrates such as cellulose, presumably due to the insufficient space to accommodate the side-chains of branched glucans in the active-site cleft. Expand
Biochemical and Structural Analyses of Two Cryptic Esterases in Bacteroides intestinalis and their Synergistic Activities with Cognate Xylanases.
TLDR
Investigation of the polypeptides encoded by two genes upregulated during growth of the colonic bacterium Bacteroides intestinalis on wheat arabinoxylan found that both domains lack the flexible hinge in BiFae1A, an observation that may partly provide a molecular basis for the differences in activities in the two esterases.

Metatranscriptomics Reveals the Active Bacterial and Eukaryotic Fibrolytic Communities in the Rumen of Dairy Cow Fed a Mixed Diet
TLDR
RNA-sequencing is used to reveal the expression of genes encoding carbohydrate-active enzymes by the rumen microbiota of a lactating dairy cow and the microorganisms forming the fiber-degrading community and highlight a substantial, although most probably underestimated, contribution of fungi and ciliate protozoa to polysaccharide degradation.

A metagenomic approach to discover a novel β-glucosidase from bovine rumens
Abstract β-Glucosidases play an important role in biomass degradation as they hydrolyze cellobiose to glucose in a final step of cellulolysis. In particular, ruminant animals rely on β-glucosidasesExpand
Abundance and Genetic Diversity of Microbial Polygalacturonase and Pectate Lyase in the Sheep Rumen Ecosystem
TLDR
This study reveals the specificity, diversity, and abundance of pectinases in the rumen ecosystem and provides two additional ruminal pectorinases for potential industrial use under physiological conditions. Expand
Cloning and expression of the cold-adapted endo-1,4-β-glucanase gene from Eisenia fetida.
TLDR
A new cold-adapted cellulase named endo-1,4-β-glucanase (EF-EG2) from the earthworm Eisenia fetida is identified, which could potentially improve the cost effectiveness of biofuel production. Expand
BEHAVIOR AND SUPPORTIVE EVIDENCE OF A LARGE XYLANASE-CONTAINING MULTIENZYME COMPLEX OF TEPIDIMICROBIUM XYLANILYTICUM BT14
TLDR
Cellular behaviors and a xylanolytic-cellulolytic enzyme system of Tepidimicrobium xylanilyticum BT14 towards xylan-rich plant biomass degradation were characterized, and several cells appeared to secrete extracellular matrix to connect to their neighbors, and the matrix disappeared when cells passed to the stationary growth phase.

Microbiome of Fungus-Growing Termites: a New Reservoir for Lignocellulase Genes
TLDR
A fosmid library was constructed from the total microbial DNA isolated from the gut of a termite growing in fungi, which revealed a highly active, substrate-specific, and endo-acting alkaline xylanase with considerably wide pH tolerance and stability but extremely low thermostability. Expand
