Abstract

Filamentous fungi are known to be efficient producers of xylanolytic enzymes, and most commercial xylanolytic preparations are obtained from fermentations of Aspergillus or Trichoderma species. β-xylosidase genes from Aspergillus niger was amplified using Polymerase Chain Reaction. β-xylosidase gene in Aspergillus niger contains an open reading frame of 2,412 nucleotides which show high similarity to Aspergillus awamori xyl mRNA for β-xylosidase (Accession Number: AB 154359) . The gene encoded 804 amino acid sequence of β-xylosidase. Amino acid analysis shows 99% identities to β-xylosidase from Aspergillus awamori.
