A gene encoding cellulase-free xylanase was cloned from the thermophilic bacterium Bacillus sp. KK-1 into Escherichia coli and the gene product was purified from the recombinant E. coli. This xylanase gene, designated xylY, was composed of 1,302 base pairs and encoded a polypeptide of 434 amino acids. No similarity was found between the nucleotide sequence of the xylY gene and those reported for other xylanase genes. The deduced amino acid sequence was homologous to those of cellulases… CONTINUE READING
