Biological function
This thermostable Beta-1,3-1,4-glucanase is the chimeric product resulting from the recombination of two Beta-1,3-1,4-glucanase from Bacillus amyloliquefaciens and Bacillus macerans.

The resulting protein depolymerises glucans in the aleurone layer and the endosperm during caryopsis germination.

Additional Information
Additional Information
The gene introduced into barley was cloned by intragenic recombination of two (1,3-1,4)-β-glucanases from Bacillus amyloliquefaciens and Bacillus macerans. The enzyme is composed of amino acids 1-12 of the glucanase from Bacillus amyloliquefaciens and amino acids 13-214 of glucanase from Bacillus macerans. Tyrosin at position 13 was deleted. The nucleotide sequence was codon-optimized to ensure functionality of the microbial gene in plants by raising the GC content to 63%.
