Abstract


Xylan 1,4-b-xylosidase (EC.3.2.1.37) is one of the important enzymes in lignocellulose degradation. It plays crucial role in the effective xylan degradation into xylose sugar. In this study, the gene Xbxs14 encoding xylan 1,4-b-xylosidase of free-living bacteria in the gut of Coptotermes gestroi termite was successfully cloned into a recombinant pBT vector, and then transferred to fuse with 100x ELPs (Elastin like polypeptide) in the expression vector pCB301-ELP to generate pCB301-Xbxs14-ELP. This recombinant vector was transformed into Agrobacterium tumefaciens bacteria. Using the agroinfiltration method, the gene was introduced into the apoplast of the cells of Nicotiana benthamiana where the transport and delivery of nutrients between and within the cells taking place. Localization of the transformed bacteria into the apoplast will help the interaction and the synthesis of foreign proteins to be effectively preserved. Leaf specimens 6-days after transformation were harvested and crude extract was prepared. Successful expression of soluble xylan 1,4-b-xylosidase in the leaf was confirmed using immunoassay. Crude leaf extracts exhibited xylan 1,4-b-xylosidase activity (4.56 U/g leaves) at the optimum condition of 60oC, pH7. This research provides an important basis to produce xylan 1,4-b-xylosidase from the Xbxs14 gene for the treatment of agricultural waste, paper industry, pharmaceutical and biofuel production.
