Summary of "A novel thermostable GH5 β-xylosidase from Thermogemmatispora sp. T81."

A glycoside hydrolase family 5 (GH5) subfamily 22 gene, designated T81Xyl5_22A, was identified in the genome of the aerobic thermophilic bacterium, Thermogemmatispora sp. T81 (locus A4R35_07040). The gene was cloned and heterologously expressed in Escherichia coli and the gene product characterized biochemically. The recombinant enzyme had an optimal catalytic activity at pH5.0 and 65 °C, and was active against beechwood xylan and rye arabinoxylan. It yielded only xylose molecules as products of beechwood xylan hydrolysis, indicating that it is a GH5 family β-D-xylosidase. Using 4-nitrophenyl β-D-xylopyranoside (pNPX) as a substrate, the K, V, k and k/K kinetic parameters were determined as 0.25 ± 0.03 mM, 889.47 ± 28.54 U/mg, 39.20 s and 156.8 mMs, respectively. Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) data enabled reconstruction of the enzyme's low-resolution molecular envelope and revealed that it formed dimers in solution. As far as we are aware, this is the first description of a thermostable bacterial GH5 family β-D-xylosidase.

A DNA amplification technique based upon the ligation of OLIGONUCLEOTIDE PROBES. The probes are designed to exactly match two adjacent sequences of a specific target DNA. The chain reaction is repeated in three steps in the presence of excess probe: (1) heat denaturation of double-stranded DNA, (2) annealing of probes to target DNA, and (3) joining of the probes by thermostable DNA ligase. After the reaction is repeated for 20-30 cycles the production of ligated probe is measured.
