  1. 1. Intermediate State Stabilisation in Enzyme Catalysis Structural studies of two serine proteases and a photosynthetic reaction centre

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Gergely Katona; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bioteknik; Bioengineering; enzyme catalysis; serine protease; photosynthetic reaction centre; X-ray crystallography; enzyme kinetics; structural mechanism; enzyme intermediate;

    Abstract : Enzymes play a key role in every organism’s life. They catalyse chemical reactions and may also respond to external stimulus. The reoccurring theme of this thesis is how biologically relevant information can be gleaned from X-ray structures of the enzymes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dynamics of Enzyme Immobilization in Mesoporous Silica Particles

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Pegah S. Nabavi Zadeh; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Enzyme immobilization; mesoporous silica; fluorescence spectroscopy; fluorescence anisotropy; rotational mobility; kinetics; pore filling; rate of immobilization; real-time monitoring.;

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis is placed on the dynamic behavior of proteins in confining environments which is studied as a scientific challenge for a deeper understanding of the immobilization mechanism and a better designing of enzyme immobilization in porous materials. Enzymes are immobilized in porous materials to improve the enzyme activity and simplify their purification from the product solution in biocatalytic applications. READ MORE

  3. 3. Enzymatic synthesis of acrylates. Catalyst properties and development of process and product

    University dissertation from Department of Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Mathias Nordblad; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; enzyme kinetics; process development; enzyme stability; enzyme immobilisation; acrylation; lipase;

    Abstract : The increasingly apparent environmental problems in our surroundings necessitate a quest for sustainable development in all areas of human endeavour. Within the field of chemistry and the production of chemicals, the focus is increasingly on the development of green chemistry. READ MORE

    Abstract : Genetic mutations can cause a wide range of diseases, e.g. cancer. Gene therapy has the potential to alleviate or even cure these diseases. READ MORE

  5. 5. The kinetics of cellulose enzymatic hydrolysis Implications of the synergism between enzymes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Priit Väljamäe; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Acetobacter; Cellobiohydrolase; Cellobiose; Cellulase; Cellulose; Diffusion; Endoglucanase; Hydrolysis; Inhibition; Kinetics; Model; Product; Substrate; Surface; Synergism; Trichoderma reesei; Biokemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The hydrolysis kinetics of bacterial cellulose and its derivatives by Trichoderma reesei cellulases was studied. The cellulose surface erosion model was introduced to explain the gradual and strong retardation of the rate of enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose. READ MORE
