Our news editors obtained a quote from the research, "In this study, the LicB gene encoding beta-1,3-1,4-glucanase (lichenase) from Clostridium thermocellum was secretively expressed in a secretive strain, Bacillus subtilis WB800, with eight extracellular protease deletion which made LicB expressed obviously and reached 1.18 U/g cell mass. The secreted beta-1,3-1,4-glucanase was found to be active from 40 A degrees C to 80 A degrees C and achieved the optimal activity at 80 A degrees C. The enzyme also has a wide pH range (pH 4-11). The most common metal ions and chemicals were found to be inert on its activity."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The property of LicB-encoded beta-1,3-1,4-glucanase and its efficient secretive expression makes it a potential enzyme for industrial production and application."
