A hybrid gene, btx, encoding a thermostable xylanase, Btx, was constructed by substituting the 31 N-terminal amino acid residues of the Thermomonospora fusca xylanase A (TfxA) for the corresponding region of 22 amino acid residues of the Bacillus subtilis xylanase A (BsxA). The btx gene was expressed in Escherichia coli BL21. The halo size produced by… CONTINUE READING
