Cloning of the xylanase gene of Streptomyces lividans.

The xylanase (xln) gene of Streptomyces lividans 1326 was cloned by functional complementation of the xylanase-negative and beta-1,4-glucan-glucanohydrolase-negative double mutant of S. lividans using the multicopy plasmid pIJ702. Three clones had a common 2-kb DNA fragment as determined by restriction mapping and Southern hybridization. These clones… CONTINUE READING
