  1. 1. Towards More Robust Saccharomyces cerevisiae Strains for Lignocellulosic Bioethanol Production: Lessons from process concepts and physiological investigations

    Author : Magnus Ask; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transcriptome; SHF; glutathione; SSF; furfural; redox metabolism; Arundo donax; Lignocellulosic bioethanol; spruce; HMF;

    Abstract : Dwindling oil reserves and the negative impacts of fossil fuels on the environment call for more sustainable energy sources. First-generation bioethanol produced from sugar cane and corn has met some of these needs, but it competes with the food supply for raw materials. READ MORE

  2. 2. Metabolic Engineering of Recombinant Protein Production by Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Author : Zihe Liu; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; recombinant protein production; genome sequencing; DNA microarray; insulin precursor; growth rate; UV mutation; yeast; anaerobic electron acceptor; secretory pathway; unfolded protein response; metabolic engineering; systems biology; α-amylase;

    Abstract : The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a widely used cell factory for the production of fuels, chemicals, and it also provides a platform for the production of many heterologous proteins of medical or industrial interest. In this thesis, random and rational approaches, such as vector design, host engineering, fermentation analysis, UV Mutation, coupled with high-throughput systems biology techniques (including whole genomic sequencing, microarray analysis and flux analysis) and integrated analysis (Reporter feature technique), were employed to engineer cellular properties more effectively and purposefully to construct cell factories for protein production.

  3. 3. Hydrolases as Catalysts for Green Chemistry and Industrial Applications - Esterase, Lipase and Phytase

    University dissertation from Lund University, Biotechnology Department

    Author : Yasser Gaber; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HPLC-EAT; sustainable environment; mutation; metallo-enzyme; phytate; b-propeller; biodegraqdable; metrics; green chemistry; Novozym 435; CalB; solvent-free; kinetic resolution; Biocatalysis; rational design; PLE; esterase; clopidogrel; enantioselectivity;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English The chemical industry has greatly contributed to the advancement of the human civilization. However, the side effects of this industry have become a real environmental burden. The message in this thesis is that enzymes have a great potential as catalysts for clean and sustainable processes.
