  1. 1. Engineering Lipid Metabolism for Production of Oleochemicals in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Paulo Teixeira; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; oleochemicals; lipid homeostasis; Saccharomyces cerevisiae< i>; lipid metabolism;

    Abstract : Oleochemicals are chemicals usually derived from plant oils or animal fat. Large use of plant oil derivatives as replacements for petroleum-derived chemicals brings sustainability issues from extensive cultivation of oil plants in restricted regions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Regulatory and Structural Properties of the High-Affinity Phosphate Acquisition System in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Jens Lagerstedt; Bengt L. Persson; Joseph W. DePierre; Peter J. Henderson; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi;

    Abstract : Inorganic phosphate is an essential nutrient required for the synthesis of many cellular components (e.g., nucleic acids, proteins, lipids and sugars), as well as for meeting metabolic needs (e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. mRNA degradation factors as regulators of the gene expression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Mridula Muppavarapu; Tracy Nissan; Per Sunnerhagen; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mRNA decapping; mRNA degradation; Pat1; Edc3; Lsm4; Lsm1-7; P bodies; Dcp2; Transcription; Ribosome biogenesis; Exosome.; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Messenger RNA degradation is crucial for the regulation of eukaryotic gene expression. It not only modulates the basal mRNA levels but also functions as a quality control system, thereby controlling the availability of mRNA for protein synthesis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Improving initial xylose metabolism in recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    University dissertation from Department of Applied Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Márk Gárdonyi; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biokemisk teknik; Biochemical technology; xylose isomerase; xylose transport; xylose fermentation; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; metabolic engineering;

    Abstract : The aim of the thesis is to improve the initial steps of xylose metabolism in recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae. S. cerevisiae takes up xylose of poor affinity by means of hexose transporters. Metabolic control analysis was used to investigate whether the low xylose utilisation rate is due to inefficient transport. READ MORE

  5. 5. Physiological Engineering of Xylose Utilisation by Recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    University dissertation from Applied Microbiology (LTH)

    Author : Nina Quednau Meinander; [1997]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; protein burden; physiology; fed-batch fermentation; chemostat; recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae; ethanol; xylose; xylitol; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Xylitol production by recombinant, XYL1-expressing Saccharomyces cerevisiae was investigated in fed-batch fermentation using different cosubstrates for growth, and generation of reduced cofactors and maintenance energy. Xylose was converted into xylitol with 1:1 yield. READ MORE
