The mechanism by which polysaccharide-hydrolyzing enzymes manifest specificity toward heterogeneous substrates, in which the sequence of sugars is variable, is unclear. An excellent example of such heterogeneity is provided by the plant structural polysaccharide glucomannan, which comprises a backbone of beta-1,4-linked glucose and mannose units. beta-Mannanases, located in glycoside hydrolase (GH) families 5 and 26, hydrolyze glucomannan by cleaving the glycosidic bond of mannosides at the -1… Expand
Influence of a Mannan Binding Family 32 Carbohydrate Binding Module on the Activity of the Appended Mannanase
It is shown that the GH5 catalytic module of Cthe_0821 displays endomannanase activity, and the CBM32 of C. thermocellum Man5A displays a preference for the nonreducing ends of mannooligosaccharides, although the protein module exhibits measurable affinity for the termini of β-1,4-linked glucooligOSaccharide such as cellobiose.

Biochemical characterization of the novel endo-β-mannanase AtMan5-2 from Arabidopsis thaliana.
The results demonstrate diversification of catalytic function among members in the Arabidopsis GH5_7 subfamily as well as high substrate affinity and catalytic efficiency on mannan substrates with main chains containing both glucose and mannose units. Expand
Structural and Biochemical Analyses of Glycoside Hydrolase Family 26 β-Mannanase from a Symbiotic Protist of the Termite Reticulitermes speratus*
Background: Symbiotic protists of the termite gut contribute to lignocellulosic biomass degradation. Results: A novel protistan β-mannanase efficiently degrades glucomannan and displaysExpand
Tracing Determinants of Dual Substrate Specificity in Glycoside Hydrolase Family 5*
This study combined structure- and sequence-based phylogenetic analysis with biochemical characterization to survey the prevalence of dual specificity for glucan- and mannan-based substrates in the GH5 family, suggesting that single domain multispecific hydrolases are widely prevalent. Expand
A Novel Glycoside Hydrolase Family 113 Endo-β-1,4-Mannanase from Alicyclobacillus sp. Strain A4 and Insight into the Substrate Recognition and Catalytic Mechanism of This Family
A novel endo-β-1,4-mannanase of GH 113, Man113A, was identified in thermoacidophilic Alicyclobacillus sp. Expand
Spatially remote motifs cooperatively affect substrate preference of a ruminal GH26-type endo-β-1,4-mannanase
Results indicate a novel and complex mechanism for substrate recognition involving spatially remote motifs, distal negative subsites from the catalytic domain, and a surface-associated aromatic cluster from the ancillary domain. Expand
An Aspergillus nidulans β-mannanase with high transglycosylation capacity revealed through comparative studies within glycosidase family 5
Three GH5 β-mannanases from Aspergillus nidulans were studied and AnMan5B stood out in generating comparably higher amounts of transglycosylation products when incubated with manno-oligosaccharides, supporting the idea that An man5B potentially prefers to use saccharides as acceptor instead of water.

NMR analysis of the binding mode of two fungal endo-β-1,4-mannanases from GH5 and GH26 families.
Deep insights are provided into the binding mode of two endo-β-1,4 mannanases from the coprophilous ascomycete Podospora anserina, PaMan26A and PaMan5A, involved in the hydrolysis of plant cell wall mannans and heteromannans. Expand
Galactomannan Catabolism Conferred by a Polysaccharide Utilization Locus of Bacteroides ovatus
A scheme of sequential action by the glycoside hydrolases encoded by the α-galactosidase PUL and involved in the β-mannan utilization pathway in B. ovatus is proposed. Expand
Diverse substrate recognition mechanism revealed by Thermotoga maritima Cel5A structures in complex with cellotetraose, cellobiose and mannotriose.
It is suggested that this enzyme prefers β-glucosyl and β-mannosyl moieties at the reducing end and uses two conserved catalytic residues, E253 (nucleophile) and E136 (general acid/base), to hydrolyze the glycosidic bonds. Expand
