We are the only supplier of enzymes from the extreme thermophile Dictyoglomus turgidum (Dtur). Dtur was first isolated from the hot springs at Kamchatka in Russia.
Our group sequenced the genome of Dictyoglomus turgidum and the genome is available from GenBank. We utilized two strategies to identify new enzymes from the organism, screening of shotgun libraries and amplification of genes from the genome sequence. Among the enzymes identified was a novel cellulase, Dtur CelA, that possesses activity on a wide range of substrates including beta-glucan, CMC, glucomannan, xyloglucan and mannan. C5-6 is the only source of the Dictyoglomus turgidum alpha-glucuronidase, an enzyme shown to significantly improve xylan conversion in pretreated biomass. All enzymes are cloned and produced in E. coli, then purified by column chromatography to give >90% purity by SDS-PAGE. Enzymes are supplied as solutions in 75 mM Tris-HCl, pH 8.0 and 25% glycerol.
