- Objectives: To evaluate the biocatalytic characteristics of a new endo-β-1,4-d-mannan-degrading enzyme (ManP) from Paenibacillus sp. strain HY-8, a gut bacterium of the longicorn beetle Moechotypa diphysis. Results: Purified ManP (32 kDa) with an N-terminal amino acid sequence of APSFAVGADFSYVPG displayed the greatest degree of biocatalytic activity toward locust bean gum (LBG) at 55°C and pH 7.0. The enzyme degraded LBG, guar gum, ivory nut mannan, and mannooligosaccharides (M2-M5), but did not exhibit any hydrolytic activity against structurally unrelated substrates. The biocatalytic activity of ManP against LBG and guar gum was 695 and 450 U mg -1, respectively. Especially, enzymatic hydrolysis of mannobiose yielded a mixture of mannose (16.6%) and mannobiose (83.4%), although the degree of mannobiose degradation by ManP with was relatively limited. Conclusion: The present results suggest that ManP is an endo-β-1,4-mannanase and is distinct from various other characterized endo-β-1,4-mannanases.
