ABSTRACT
Cell free extract prepared from ciliates Diploplastron affine free from bacteria degraded xylan releasing reducing sugars at the rate of 117.8 ± 3.14 μM/mg protein/h. Two xylan degrading enzymes have been identified in protozoal cell free extract by a zymogram technique it was also found that one of the identified enzymes degraded xylan to xylooligosaccharides i.e. was of endoxylanase character. Screening of the Diploplastron affine cDNA library resulted in the identification of a xylanase encoding gene consisting of 1670 bp.
