The gene encoding a 42-kDa endoxylanase was cloned from Erwinia chrysanthemi strain D1. Sequencing of this gene, called xynA, showed that it encoded a primary protein product of 413 amino acids with an unusual and long (31 amino acid) leader peptide that was cleaved during secretion to the bacterial periplasm. This protein is distinct from xylanases in glycohydrolase families 10 and 11 and, instead, appears to be intermediate between families 5 and 30. The xynA gene is located downstream from a… CONTINUE READING
