Identification and characterization of a halotolerant, cold-active marine endo-β-1,4-glucanase by using functional metagenomics of seaweed-associated microbiota.

Abstract

A metagenomic library was constructed from microorganisms associated with the brown alga Ascophyllum nodosum. Functional screening of this library revealed 13 novel putative esterase loci and two glycoside hydrolase loci. Sequence and gene cluster analysis showed the wide diversity of the identified enzymes and gave an idea of the microbial populations… (More)
