The endoglucanase gene (endB) of Fibrobacter succinogenes S85 encodes a protein of 555 amino acids (EGB) with a M(r) of 62,500. EGB shows homology with cellulases belonging to family E. Residues involved in the catalytic activity of CelD from Clostridium thermocellum are also found in EGB. Structure predictions suggest that EGB, like CelD, comprises a large… CONTINUE READING
