    Author : Yang Wang; Ines Ezcurra; Henrik Aspeborg; Henrik Stålbrand; Torkel Berglund; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; GH5; glycoside hydrolase; subfamily classification; mannans; polysaccharides; mannanases; cell wall; GH5; glykosidhydrolas; subfamiljklassificering; mannaner; polysackarider; mannanaser; cellvägg; SRA - Molekylär biovetenskap; SRA - Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : In 1990, the classification of carbohydrate-active enzymes (CAZymes) was introduced by the scientist Bernard Henrissat. According to sequence similarity, these enzymes were separated into families with conserved structures and reaction mechanisms. READ MORE

    Abstract : Two putative cyclodextrinases (CDases) were amplified from two moderate thermophiles isolated in Iceland: Anoxybacillus flavithermus and Laceyella sacchari. They were cloned, expressed and characterized. The expression of the former was optimized in E. READ MORE

  5. 5. Degradation of wood polysaccharides by fungal glycoside hydrolases

    University dissertation from Torny Eriksson Dept of Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Torny Eriksson; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Penicillium brasilianum; ethanol; cellulose; wood polysaccharides; Man5A hemicellulase; cellulase; endoglucanase; cellobiohydrolase; Cel7B; Cel7A; Trichoderma reesei; glycoside hydrolase; Plant biochemistry; Växtbiokemi;

    Abstract : The enzymatic degradation of wood polysaccharides such as cellulose and hemicellulose is an important process in nature. In addition, cellulases and hemicellulases can be used in industrial applications. Fuel ethanol can potentially be produced from wood by enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose followed by yeast fermentation of the formed sugars. READ MORE
