  • b-1,4-Endoglucanases (EGases, EC 3.2.1.4) degrade polysaccharides possessing b-1,4-glucan backbones such as cellulose and xyloglucan and have been found among extremely variegated taxonomic groups. Although many ani- mal species depend on cellulose as their main energy source, most omnivores and herbivores are unable to produce EGases endogenously. So far, all previously identified EGase genes involved in the digestive system of animals originate from symbiotic microorganisms. Here we report on… CONTINUE READING
