  1. 1. Enzyme assays for lignin–carbohydrate bond hydrolysis

    Author : Hampus Sunner; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Enzyme kinetic param- eter estimation; Glucuronoyl esterase; Enzyme assays; Lignin-carbohydrate bonds; Synergistic enzyme assay;

    Abstract : To identify, produce, and use enzymes, analytical methods known as enzyme assays are employed. Enzyme assays are based on analysing the changes brought about on a substrate by an enzyme under defined conditions. Assays are often based on simplified reactions acting as substitutes for the reaction of interest. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dietary fibre production from oat hulls

    Author : Eva Schmitz; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Oat hulls; Dietary fibre; Chemical composition; Bleaching; Pre-treatment; Enzyme synergy;

    Abstract : The current threats of climate change connected to the unsustainable consumption of fossil resources paired with an increasing world population demands the exploration of alternative raw materials for the production of food, fuel and specialty chemicals. Agricultural waste streams present suitable sources due to their availability in large quantities at low costs without competing with current food production. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fungal cellulases: Study of hydrolytic properties of endoglucanases from Trichoderma reesei and Humicola insolens

    Author : Johan Karlsson; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Humicola insolens; Trichoderma reesei; endoglucanases; cellulose hydrolysis; carboxymethyl cellulose; synergy; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Metabolism; Chemical technology and engineering; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi;

    Abstract : Cellulose is one of the most abundant biopolymers on earth. Several organisms degrade cellulose, one of the most studied is the fungus Trichoderma reesei which produces seven genetically different cellulases. READ MORE

  4. 4. Enzymatic conversion of β-mannans through transglycosylation and hydrolysis : Synthesis of building blocks for novel biomaterials from renewables

    Author : Samuel Butler; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; β-Mannanase; Transglycosylation; Enzymatic synthesis; Glycoconjugates; Enzyme synergy; α- Galactosidase; Galactoglucomannan; Enzyme engineering; MALDI-ToF MS; HPLC;

    Abstract : The major softwood hemicellulose is galactoglucomannan (GGM), an abundant polysaccharide which constitutes up to 25% of the dry weight of wood, much of which is discarded in current refinery practices. Among the enzymes responsible for the degradation of this hemicellulose are the β-mannanases. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exploring and exploiting plant biomass degradation by Bacteroidetes

    Author : Cathleen Kmezik; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : PUL transfer; carbohydrate-active enzymes; Bacteroidetes; multidomain enzymes; polysaccharide utilization locus; plant biomass degradation; xylan; carbohydrate esterases;

    Abstract : Bacteroidetes bacteria have evolved to become excellent biomass degraders. They achieved this by applying carbohydrate-active enzymes (CAZymes) and organizing genes connected to the degradation of specific polysaccharides into discrete gene cassettes, so-called polysaccharide utilization loci (PULs).
