Plant cell wall degradation by Clostridium cellulovorans requires the cooperative activity of its cellulases and hemicellulases. To characterize the alpha-L-arabinosidases that are involved in hemicellulose degradation, we screened the C. cellulovorans genomic library for clones with alpha-L-arabinofuranosidase or alpha-L-arabinopyranosidase activity, and… CONTINUE READING
