A gene expressing xylanase activity was isolated from a genomic library of Thermotoga sp. strain FjSS3-B.1. The sequence of the gene shows that it encodes a single domain, family 10 xylanase. The recombinant enzyme has extremely high thermal stability, activity over a relatively broad pH range, and activity on Pinus radiata kraft pulp.
