  1. 1. Engineering Saccharomyces cerevisiae for mixed-sugar fermentation

    Author : Rosa Garcia Sanchez; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; metabolic engineering; evolutionary engineering; promoter; mixed-sugar utilization; galactose; arabinose; xylose; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; fermentation; ethanol; phosphoglucomutase;

    Abstract : Efficient fermentation of all the monomeric sugars derived from lignocellulose is crucial to increase the economy of bioethanol production, since they can account for a considerable fraction of the fermentable sugars in the raw material. This thesis describes the engineering of Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains for improved xylose, galactose and/or arabinose utilization. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modulators of Saccharomyces cerevisiae cytochrome c oxidase Implications for the regulation of mitochondrial respiration

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Camilla Rydström Lundin; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cytochrome c oxidase; cytochrome c; OXPHOS; membrane protein; kinetics; ligand-binding; electron transfer; Rcf1; respiratory supercomplexes; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria is performed by enzyme complexes and electron carriers that reside in the inner membrane. It is now generally accepted that these respiratory enzyme complexes assemble into larger so-called supercomplexes. However, it is presently not known why, under which conditions or how these supercomplexes form. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Department of Applied Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Márk Gárdonyi; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [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

  4. 4. Metabolic Engineering of Saccharomyces cerevisiae for Sesquiterpene Production

    University dissertation from Department of Applied Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Gionata Scalcinati; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Systems Biology; Saccharomyces cerevisiae.; Evolutionary engineering; Metabolic Engineering; Microrefinery; Cell factory; Synthetic Biology;

    Abstract : Industrial biotechnology aims to develop robust “microbial cell factories”, to produce an array of added value chemicals presently dominated by petrochemical processes. The exploitation of an efficient microbial production as sustainable technology has an important impact for our society. READ MORE

  5. 5. Industrial Systems Biology and Metabolic Engineering of Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    University dissertation from Department of Applied Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : José Manuel Otero; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; metabolic engineering; industrial systems biology; Saccharomyces cerevisiae;

    Abstract : Saccharomyces cerevisiae is the most well characterized eukaryote, the preferred microbial cell factoryfor the largest industrial biotechnology product (bioethanol), and a robust commercially compatible scaffold to be exploited for diverse chemical production. Succinic acid is a highly sought after added-value chemical whichis not overproduced in native S. READ MORE
