In this study, site-directed mutagenesis was performed on the β-agarase AgaA gene from Zobellia galactanivorans to improve its catalytic activity and thermostability. The activities of three mutant enzymes, S63K, C253I, and S63K-C253I, were 126% (1,757.78 U/mg), 2.4% (33.47 U/mg), and...

A gene of unknown function from the genome of the agar-degrading deep-sea bacterium Microbulbifer thermotolerans JAMB-A94(T) was functionally identified as a ι-carrageenase gene. This gene, designated as cgiA, is located together with two β-agarase genes, agaA and agaO in a...
