  1. Cbes1853, 1854, and 1855 are predicted to encode extracellular CAZy proteins [19] which contain signal peptides at the 5'- end and a CBM. The abbreviations are: CAZy, carbohydrate active enzyme; EC, enzyme commission number; SP, signal peptide; PL3, PL9, and PL11, polysaccharide lyase family of 3, 9, and 11; CBM, carbohydrate-binding module; CBM3, carbohydrate-binding module of family 3; CBM_4_9, putative pectin-binding module [12],[13].
