  1. 1. Discovery and investigation of glycoside hydrolase family 5 enzymes with potential use in biomass conversion

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Yang Wang; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; plant cell wall; biomass; hemicellulose; mannans; glycoside hydrolase; subfamily classification; Arabidopsis; mannanase; transglycosylase; enzymatic characterization.; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Glycoside hydrolases (GHs) cleave glycosidic bonds in glycoconjugates, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides such as cellulose and various hemicelluloses. Mannan is a major group of hemicelluloses. READ MORE

  2. 2. Towards More Robust Saccharomyces cerevisiae Strains for Lignocellulosic Bioethanol Production: Lessons from process concepts and physiological investigations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Magnus Ask; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transcriptome; SHF; glutathione; SSF; furfural; redox metabolism; Arundo donax; Lignocellulosic bioethanol; spruce; HMF;

    Abstract : Dwindling oil reserves and the negative impacts of fossil fuels on the environment call for more sustainable energy sources. First-generation bioethanol produced from sugar cane and corn has met some of these needs, but it competes with the food supply for raw materials. READ MORE

  3. 3. Concepts for improving ethanol productivity from lignocellulosic materials encapsulated yeast and membrane bioreactors

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Päivi Ylitervo; Högskolan i Borås.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning; Encapsulated yeast; Biofuel; S. cerevisiae; Membrane bioreactors; Thermotolerance; Furfural; Acetic acid; Resource Recovery;

    Abstract : Lignocellulosic biomass is a potential feedstock for production of sugars, which can be fermented into ethanol. The work presented in this thesis proposes some solutions to overcome problems with suboptimal process performance due to elevated cultivation temperatures and inhibitors present during ethanol production from lignocellulosic materials.

    Abstract : Adenovirus serotype 5 (Ad5) is widely used as an oncolytic agent for cancer therapy. However, its infectivity is highly dependent on the expression level of coxsackievirus-adenovirus receptor (CAR) on the surface of tumor cells. READ MORE

  5. 5. Engineering of Affibody molecules for Radionuclide Molecular Imaging and Intracellular Targeting

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Camilla Hofström; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Affibody molecules; affinity proteins; radionuclide molecular imaging; intracellular targeting; EGFR; HER2; IGF-1R; SRA - Molekylär biovetenskap; SRA - Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Affibody molecules are small (7 kDa) affinity proteins of non-immunoglobulin origin that have been generated to specifically interact with a large number of clinically important molecular targets.In this thesis, Affibody molecules have been employed as tracers for radionuclide molecular imaging of HER2- and IGF-1R-expressing tumors, paper I-IV, and for surface knock-down of EGFR, paper V.
