Consistent with its precloning characterization from the cellulolytic Bacillus sp., β-1,4-endoglucanase purified from the recombinant E. coli exhibited maximum activity at 60°C and pH 7.0. It was highly specific for CMC hydrolysis, with stability up to 70°C and over a pH range of 6.0–8.0. The K m and V max values for CMCase activity of the enzyme were 4.1 mg/ml and 25 μmole/ml min−1, respectively. The purified enzyme was a monomer of 65 kDa, as determined by SDS-PAGE. The presence of sucrose and IPTG in fermentation media increased the endoglucanase activity of the recombinant enzyme to 5.2-folds as compared with that of the actual one.
