    The Trichoderma reesei cDNA coding for α-glucuronidase (GLRI), which releases glucuronic acid attached to xylose units of xylan, was cloned and sequenced. The deduced N-terminal amino acid (aa) sequence of the protein was verified by sequencing of the purified GLRI. The aa sequence of the GLRI displayed no similarity with any aa sequence available in the data bases.
