Degradation of cellulosome-produced cello-oligosaccharides by an extracellular non-cellulosomal beta-glucan glucohydrolase, BglA, from Clostridium cellulovorans.

Abstract

Clostridium cellulovorans degrades cellulose efficiently to small oligosaccharides, which are used as an energy source. To characterize enzymes related to degrading small oligosaccharides, a gene was cloned for an extracellular non-cellulosomal beta-glucan glucohydrolase (BglA) classified as a family-1 glycosyl hydrolase in C. cellulovorans. Recombinant… (More)
