    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

  2. 2. Structural and biochemical insights into biosynthesis and degradation of N-glycans

    Author : Tom Reichenbach; Christina Divne; David Drew; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; N-glycan; biosynthesis; degradation; glycosyltransferase; glycoside hydrolase; biofuel; enzyme; membrane protein; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Carbohydrates are a primary energy source for all living organisms, but importantly, they also participate in a number of life-sustaining biological processes, e.g. cell signaling and cell-wall synthesis. The first part of the thesis examines glycosyltransferases that play a crucial role in the biosynthesis of N-glycans. READ MORE

  3. 3. Investigation of genes and proteins involved in xylan biosynthesis
