Culture-independent molecular-based approaches can be used to identify genes of interest from environmental sources that have desirable properties such as thermo activity. For this study, a putative thermo stable endoglucanase gene was identified from a mixed culture resulting from the inoculation of Brock-CMcellulose (1%) broth with mudspring water from Mt. Makiling, Laguna, Philippines that had been incubated at 90 °C. Genomic DNA was extracted from the cellulose-enriched mixed culture and endo1949 forward and reverse primers were used to amplify the endoglucanase gene, which was cloned into pCR-script plasmid vector. Blastn alignment of the sequenced insert revealed 99.69% similarity to the glycosyl hydrolase, sso1354 (CelA1; Q97YG7) from Saccharolobus solfataricus. The endoglucanase gene (GenBank accession number MK984682) was determined to be 1,021 nucleotide bases in length, corresponding to 333 amino acids with a molecular mass of ~ 37 kDa. The endoglucanase gene was inserted into a pET21 vector and transformed in E. coli BL21 for expression. Partially purified recombinant Mt. Makiling endoglucanase (MM-Engl) showed a specific activity of 187.61 U/mg and demonstrated heat stability up to 80 °C. The thermo-acid stable endoglucanase can be used in a supplementary hydrolysis step to further hydrolyze the lignocellulosic materials that were previously treated under high temperature-dilute acid conditions, thereby enhancing the release of more glucose sugars for bioethanol production.
