原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br) Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki is a well-known wood-feeding termite, which can degrade not only cellulose and hemicellulose polysaccharides, but also some aromatic lignin polymers with its enzyme complex to the woody biomass. In this study, a very abundant protein was discovered and purified, using a three-step column chromatography procedure, from the tissue homogenate of the salivary glands and the gut of C. formosanus . Mass spectrometric analysis and the following peptide searching against the mRNA database toward this termite species indicated that the novel protein was a hemocyanin enzyme, termed as Hemo1, which further exhibited a strong oxidase activity in the substrate bioassays toward ABTS [2,2′-Azino-bis (3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid)], as well as other...
