Cloning of beta-xylosidase gene from aspergillus niger

Muhammad Zaidi, Nor Fadzilah and Md. Illias, Rosli (2007) Cloning of beta-xylosidase gene from aspergillus niger. In: The 32nd Annual Conference Of The Malaysian Society For Biochemistry And Molecular Biology , 5th-6th September 2007, Eastin Hotel, Petaling Jaya.



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.
