An agar-degrading bacterium, strain LGH, was isolated and identified as Cohnella sp. This strain had a capability of utilizing agar as a sole carbon source for growth and showed a strong agarolytic activity. A novel endo-type β-agarase gene agaW, encoding a primary translation product of 891 amino acids, including a 26 amino acid signal peptide, was cloned and identified from a genomic library of strain LGH. The AgaW belonged to the glycoside hydrolase (GH) GH50 family, with less than 39… CONTINUE READING
