Xylanases hydrolyze the β-1,4-linked xylose backbone of xylans, the major hemicellulosic components of plant cell walls. They are especially useful in paper industry because they decrease the demand for chlorine-based chemicals in the wood pulp delignification process. In this study, 3D structure of Xyn10A, a family 10 xylanase from Bacillus firmus K-1 was generated by homology modeling using X-ray structure of xylanase from Bacillus sp. strain NG-27 as a template. The root mean square… CONTINUE READING
