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

    University dissertation from Department of Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Johan Karlsson; [2000]
    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

  2. 2. Enzyme Hydrolysis of Cellulose Derivatives. Active Site Studies and Polymer Characterisation

    University dissertation from Department of Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Herje Schagerlöf; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Kemi; Chemistry; Humicola insolens; Trichoderma reesei; Bacillus agaradhaerens; Mass spectrometry; Substituent distribution; Characterisation; Endoglucanases; Cellulose derivatives;

    Abstract : Soluble derivatives of cellulose have become increasingly important in industrial products e.g. in pharmaceutical applications and in technical dispersions. The polymer characteristics of modified celluloses are to a high degree determined by the substituent distribution along the polymeric backbone. READ MORE

  3. 3. Plant and microbial xyloglucanases: Function, Structure and Phylogeny

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jens Eklöf; Harry Brumer; Harry Gilbert; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; xyloglucan; xyloglucanases; XTH; XET; XEH; endoglucanases; EG16; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : In this thesis, enzymes acting on the primary cell wall hemicellulose xyloglucan are studied.  Xyloglucans are ubiquitous in land plants which make them an important polysaccharide to utilise for microbes and a potentially interesting raw material for various industries. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biochemical modification of wood components

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Abstract : Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) is a cellulose derivative, made from cellulose by introduction of carboxymethyl groups along the molecules. The properties of CMC are affected by several parameters where the molar mass and molar mass distribution, degree of substitution (DS) and the distribution pattern along, and between, the cellulose molecules are the most prominent.
