|Gene:||txyA||Accession Number: G-12787 (MetaCyc)|
Species: Vibrio sp. XY-214
(1,3)-β-Xylan is found mainly in the cell walls of red and green algae, and is a homopolysaccharide.
A endo-1,3-β-xylanase has been purified to homogeneity from the marine bacterium Vibrio sp. XY-214. The purified enzyme hydrolyzed β-1,3-xylan to produce mainly (1,3)-β-xylotriose and (1,3)-β-xylobiose [Araki99a]. It did not act on (1,3)-β-xylobiose, p-nitrophenyl-β-D-xylopyranoside, a (1→4)-β-D-xylan, a 1,3-β-D-glucan, or carboxymethyl cellulose.
The N-terminal amino acid sequence of the purified enzyme was determined and used for cloning the gene by PCR. The txyA gene was expressed in Escherichia coli, And the recombinant protein was purified and characterized as well [Araki00].
The gene consists of a signal peptide of 22 amino acid residues, followed by a catalytic domain which belongs to family 26 of the glycosyl hydrolases, a linker region with one array of DGG and six repeats of DNGG, and a carbohydrate-binding module (CBM31) that binds pecifically to β-1,3-xylan [Okazaki02].
