Abstract
We cloned lipG, which encoded a lipolytic enzyme, from a Korean tidal flat metagenomic library. LipG was related to six putative lipases previously identified only in bacterial genome sequences. These enzymes comprise a new family. We partially characterized LipG, providing the first experimental data for a member of this family.
