  1. 1. Cellulose Biosynthesis in Oomycetes

    Author : Johanna Fugelstad; Vincent Bulone; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cellulose biosynthesis; cellulose synthase genes; Oomycetes; Phytophthora infestans; Saprolegnia monoica.; Other bioengineering; Övrig bioteknik;

    Abstract : Oomycetes have long been considered as a separate class within the kingdom Fungi, but they are in fact closer to brown algae. They are currently classified in the Stramenopile eukaryotic kingdom, which includes heterokont algae and water molds. READ MORE

  2. 2. Functional characterization of cellulose and chitin synthase genes in Oomycetes

    Author : Johanna Fugelstad; Vincent Bulone; Carol Munro; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cellulose biosynthesis; chitin biosynthesis; cellulose synthase gene; chitin synthase gene; Oomycetes; Phytophthora infestans; Saprolegnia monoica; pleckstrin homology domain; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : Some species of Oomycetes are well studied pathogens that cause considerable economical losses in the agriculture and aquaculture industries. Currently, there are no chemicals available that are environmentally friendly and at the same time efficient Oomycete inhibitors. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cellulose synthases in Populus- identification, expression analyses and in vitro synthesis

    Author : Soraya Djerbi; Tuula Teeri; Petter Gustafsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; cellulose synthase; Populus; secondary cell wall; gene upregulation; cell suspension culture; stationary phase; Bioengineering; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : Cellulose is a biopolymer of great relevance in the plant cell walls, where it constitutes the most important skeletal component. Cellulose is also an important raw material in the pulp- and paper, forest, and textile industries, among others. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization of specific domains of the cellulose and chitin synthases from pathogenic oomycetes

    Author : Christian Brown; Vincent Bulone; Carol Munro; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cellulose biosynthesis; chitin biosynthesis; cellulose synthase genes; chitin synthase genes; oomycetes; Saprolegnia monoica; Microtubule Interacting and Trafficking MIT domain; Pleckstrin Homology PH domain; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Some oomycetes species are severe pathogens of fish or crops. As such, they are responsible for important losses in the aquaculture industry as well as in agriculture. Saprolegnia parasitica is a major concern in aquaculture as there is currently no method available for controlling the diseases caused by this microorganism. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cell wall biosynthesis in the pathogenic oomycete Saprolegnia parasitica

    Author : Elzbieta Rzeszutek; Vincent Bulone; Carol Munro; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cellulose biosynthesis; chitin biosynthesis; cellulose synthase genes; chitin synthase genes; oomycetes; Saprolegnia parasitica; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : The oomycete Saprolegnia parasitica is a fungus-like microorganism responsible for the fish disease saprolegniosis, which leads to important economic losses in aquaculture. Currently, there is no efficient method to control the infection and therefore methods for disease management are urgently needed. READ MORE
