Two different clones expressing endogluconase activity were isolated from a plasmid gene bank constructed from Ruminococcus albus SY3 genomic DNA. Hydrolysis of xylan and lichenan by cell‐free extract prepared from one of the clones may be attributable to a multifunctional protein. DNA hybridization demonstrated the absence of homology between the two endogluconase genes and a number of cellulase‐related genes cloned previously from R. albus 8.
