Title A GH51 α-L-arabinofuranosidase from Talaromyces leycettanus strain JCM12802 that selectively drives synergistic lignocellulose hydrolysis.
Journal Microb. Cell Fact.
Abstract BACKGROUND:The development of sustainable technologies for plant cell wall degradation greatly depends on enzymes with hydrolytic activities against carbohydrates. The waste by-products of agricultural cereals are important biomass sources because they contain large amounts of saccharides. Achieving efficient debranching and depolymerization are two important objectives for increasing the utilization of such renewable bioresources. GH51 α-L-arabinofuranosidases are important in biomass pretreatment because they act synergistically with other enzymes during hemicellulose hydrolysis.
RESULTS:A GH51 α-L-arabinofuranosidase from Talaromyces leycettanus JCM12802 was heterologously expressed in Pichia pastoris GS115 and characterized. The recombinant α-L-arabinofuranosidase, TlAbf51, showed an optimum temperature and pH of 55-60 °C and 3.5-4.0, respectively, and remained stable at 50 °C and pH 3.0-9.0. TlAbf51 showed a higher catalytic efficiency (5712 mM-1 s-1) than most fungal α-L-arabinofuranosidases towards the substrate 4-nitrophenyl-α-L-arabinofuranoside. Moreover, TlAbf51 preferentially removed 1,2- or 1,3-linked arabinofuranose residues from arabinoxylan and acted synergistically with the bifunctional xylanase/cellulase TcXyn10A at an activity ratio of 5:1. The highest yields of arabinose and xylooligosaccharides were obtained when TlAbf51 was added after TcXyn10A or when both enzymes were added simultaneously. High-performance anion-exchange chromatography analyses showed that (i) arabinose and xylooligosaccharides with low degrees of polymerization (DP1-DP5) and (ii) arabinose and xylooligosaccharides (DP1-DP3) were the major hydrolysates obtained during the hydrolysis of sodium hydroxide-pretreated cornstalk and corn bran, respectively.
CONCLUSIONS:In contrast to other fungal GH51 α-L-arabinofuranosidases, recombinant TlAbf51 showed excellent stability over a broad pH range and high catalytic efficiency. Moreover, TlAbf51 acted synergistically with another hemicellulase to digest arabino-polysaccharides. These favorable enzymatic properties make TlAbf51 attractive for biomass pretreatment and biofuel production.
