  1. 1. galactmannan degradation by fungi and gut bacteria : structural enzymology and fine -tuned substrate specifcity

    Author : Sumitha Krishnaswamyreddy; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : fine-tuned substrate specificity; β-mannanase; β-mannosidases; synergy; α-galactosidases; mannan converison in gut; transglycosylation; polysaccharide utilisation locus; phylogenetic analysis; MALDI-TOF MS;

    Abstract : AbstractThe degradation of plant based β-mannan polysaccharides represents one of the many challenges efficiently tackled by microorganisms living in different habitats. In this thesis, glycoside hydrolases (GHs) involved in mannan degradation from two different organisms, Aspergillus nidulans (paper I and II) and Bacteroides ovatus (paper III and IV) were studied.

    Abstract : β-Mannoside hydrolases are enzymes that are involved in conversion of the major soft-wood hemicellulose O-acetyl-galactoglucomannan, an important renewable biomass resource. They belong to clan A of glycoside hydrolases and share a common (β/α)8-TIM barrel fold. READ MORE
