  1. 1. Phage–derived Endolysins as Potential Antibacterials : A Study of Peptidoglycan Hydrolase and Mycolylarabinogalactan Esterase Enzymes

    Author : Adel Abouhmad; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Antibacterial; Endolysin; Nanocrystals; Immobilization; Mycolylarabinogalactan esterase;

    Abstract : Bacteriophages, or phages, are viruses that infect bacteria, at the end of their life cycle produce a set of enzymes called endolysins to lyse host cells from within, facilitating the release of the viral progeny. Due to their lytic activity, endolysins have gained great interest as potential antibacterials targeting both Gram–positive and –negative bacteria, especially in the actual context of increasing rates of antibiotics resistance.

    Abstract : Industrial biotechnology is a large and growing industry as it is part of establishing a “greener” and more sustainable bioeconomy-based society. Using enzymes as biocatalysts is a viable alternative to chemicals and energy intense industrial processes and is en route to a more sustainable industry. READ MORE

  3. 3. The role of sugar sensing and pathway selection on D-xylose utilization by Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Author : Celina Tufvegren; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Biorefineries have the potential to partially or entirely replace petrochemistry for the production of our daily bulk and fine chemicals. However, this replacement can only be sustainable and cost-effective if the raw material used is cheap, renewable and does not compete with the food and feed industry. READ MORE

  4. 4. Developmental Control of Cell Division in Streptomyces coelicolor

    Author : Nina Grantcharova; Klas Flärdh; Gerhart Wagner; Yves Brun; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Microbiology; FtsZ; cell division; Streptomyces; GFP; bacterial development; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : Cell division in the Gram-positive bacterium Streptomyces coelicolor starts with the assembly of the tubulin homologue FtsZ into a cytokinetic ring (the Z ring) at the site of septation. In stark contrast to the binary fission of most bacteria, the syncytial hyphal cells of S. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lignocellulose Degradation by Soil Micro-organisms

    Author : Ran Bi; Gunnar Henriksson; Jerry Ståhlberg; KTH; []

    Abstract : Lignocellulosic biomass is a sustainable resource with abundant reserves. Compared to petroleum ‐ based products, the biomass ‐ derived polymers and chemicals give better environmental profiles. A lot of research interest is focused on understanding the lignocellulose structures. READ MORE
