Two phosphorolytic enzymes displaying activity towards the soluble cellulose degradation products cellobiose and cellodextrins were purified from the crude extract of the cellulolytic thermophile Clostridium stercorarium. Both phosphorylases have monomeric structures with molecular masses of 93 and 91 kDa, respectively. Although the N-terminal amino acid sequences are highly similar, a clear distinction of the two enzymes could be made on the basis of their substrate specificities: the enzyme… CONTINUE READING
