  1. 1. Engineering xylose and arabinose metabolism in recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    University dissertation from Department of Applied Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Kaisa Karhumaa; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; virologi; bakteriologi; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bacteriology; Saccharomyces cerevisiae ; arabinose; xylose; fermentation; lignocellulose; yeast; mykologi; Biochemical technology; Biokemisk teknik; virology; Microbiology; ethanol;

    Abstract : Utilization of all sugars in lignocellulose hydrolysates is a prerequisite for economically feasible bioethanol production. The yeast commonly used for industrial ethanol production, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is naturally unable to utilize pentose sugars xylose and arabinose, which constitute a large fraction of many lignocellulosic materials.

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

    University dissertation from Department of Applied Microbiology, Lund University

    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

  3. 3. Strategies for improved Escherichia coli bioprocessing performance

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Johan Jarmander; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; E. coli; Salmonella; surface expression; autotransport; AIDA-I; lignocellulose; glucose; xylose; arabinose; simultaneous uptake; 3HB; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Escherichia coli has a proven track record for successful production of anything from small molecules like organic acids to large therapeutic proteins, and has thus important applications in both R&D and commercial production. The versatility of this organism in combination with the accumulated knowledge of its genome, metabolism and physiology, has allowed for development of specialty strains capable of performing very specific tasks, opening up opportunities within new areas.

  4. 4. Ethanol Production from Lignocellulosic Materials: Potential of Continuous Cultivation, Immobilisation, and Zygomycetous Fungi

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ria Millati; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; continuous cultivation; galactose; Rhizopus; xylose; Rhizomucor; S cerevisiae; Mucor; M indicus; glucose; immobilisation; detoxification; arabinose; mannose; overliming; ethanol; dilute-acid hydrolysate;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the production of bio-ethanol, a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels, from dilute-acid lignocellulosic hydrolysate in a continuous immobilised cell system and fermentation of the hydrolysate by a zygomycete organism, M. indicus. READ MORE

  5. 5. Use of feruloyl esterases for chemoenzymatic synthesis of bioactive compounds

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Io Antonopoulou; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biokemisk processteknik; Biochemical Process Engineering;

    Abstract : Feruloyl esterases (FAEs, EC 3.1.1.73) represent a subclass of carboxylic acid esterases that under normal conditions catalyze the hydrolysis of the ester bond between hydroxycinnamic acids (ferulic acid, sinapic acid, caffeic acid, p-coumaric acid) and arabinose residues in plant cell walls.
