  1. 1. Dynamics of Enzyme Immobilization in Mesoporous Silica Particles

    Author : Pegah Sadat Nabavi Zadeh; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : fluorescence spectroscopy; real-time monitoring.; fluorescence anisotropy; pore filling; Enzyme immobilization; mesoporous silica; kinetics; rotational mobility; rate of immobilization;

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis is placed on the dynamic behavior of proteins in confining environments which is studied as a scientific challenge for a deeper understanding of the immobilization mechanism and a better designing of enzyme immobilization in porous materials. Enzymes are immobilized in porous materials to improve the enzyme activity and simplify their purification from the product solution in biocatalytic applications. READ MORE

  2. 2. Enzymatic synthesis of acrylates. Catalyst properties and development of process and product

    Author : Mathias Nordblad; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; enzyme kinetics; process development; enzyme stability; enzyme immobilisation; acrylation; lipase;

    Abstract : The increasingly apparent environmental problems in our surroundings necessitate a quest for sustainable development in all areas of human endeavour. Within the field of chemistry and the production of chemicals, the focus is increasingly on the development of green chemistry. READ MORE

    Abstract : Genetic mutations can cause a wide range of diseases, e.g. cancer. Gene therapy has the potential to alleviate or even cure these diseases. READ MORE

  4. 4. The kinetics of cellulose enzymatic hydrolysis : Implications of the synergism between enzymes

    Author : Priit Väljamäe; Jan-Christer Janson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Acetobacter; Cellobiohydrolase; Cellobiose; Cellulase; Cellulose; Diffusion; Endoglucanase; Hydrolysis; Inhibition; Kinetics; Model; Product; Substrate; Surface; Synergism; Trichoderma reesei; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The hydrolysis kinetics of bacterial cellulose and its derivatives by Trichoderma reesei cellulases was studied. The cellulose surface erosion model was introduced to explain the gradual and strong retardation of the rate of enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose. READ MORE

  5. 5. Engineered Alcohol Dehydrogenases for Stereoselective Chemical Transformations

    Author : Thilak Reddy Enugala; Mikael Widersten; Manfred T. Reetz; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; alcohol dehydrogenase-A; biocatalysts; protein engineering; enzyme kinetics; sec-alcohols; ketones; stereoselectivity; regioselectivity; substrate selectivity and promiscuity.; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Enzymes are biomolecules built from amino acids and catalyze the chemical transformations in a cell. Enzymes are by nature stereoselective, biodegradable, environmentally friendly, and can perform catalysis in aqueous solutions and at ambient temperatures. READ MORE
