Sequencing of two cDNAs from the anaerobic fungi Piromyces equi and Piromyces sp. strain E2 revealed that they both encode a glycoside hydrolase (GH) family 48 cellulase, containing two C-terminal fungal dockerin domains. N-terminal sequencing of the major component of the Piromyces multi-enzyme cellulase/hemicellulase complex, termed the cellulosome, showed that these 80 kDa proteins corresponded to the GH family 48 enzyme. These data show for the first time that GH family 48 cellulases are not confined to bacteria, and that bacterial and fungal cellulosomes share the same pivotal component.
