Crystallization and preliminary crystallographic analysis of endo-1,3-beta-glucanase from alkaliphilic Nocardiopsis sp. strain F96.

Endo-1,3-beta-glucanase, an enzyme that hydrolyzes the 1,3-beta-glycosyl linkages of beta-glucan, belongs to the family 16 glycosyl hydrolases, which are widely distributed among bacteria, fungi and higher plants. Crystals of a family 16 endo-1,3-beta-glucanase from the alkaliphilic Nocardiopsis sp. strain F96 were obtained by the hanging-drop vapour… CONTINUE READING
