    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; xyloglucan; xyloglucan endo-transglycosylase hydrolase; xyloglucan endo-hydrolase; xyloglucan endo-transglycosylase; XET; xyloglucan oligosaccharides; synthesis; carbohydrate; cellulose; crystal structure; fiber; surface modification; Populus tremula x Populus tremuloides; Hybrid aspen; nasturtium; NXG; Biochemistry; Biokemi;

    Abstract : Cellulosabaserade material är världens rikligast förekommande förnyelsebara råvara. Växters cellväggar är naturliga kompositmaterial där den kristallina cellulosan är inbäddad i en väv av hemicellulosa, strukturproteiner och lignin. READ MORE

  2. 2. Production and engineering of a xyloglucan endo-transglycosylase from Populus tremula x tremuloides

    Author : Maria Henriksson; Tuula Teeri; KTH; []

    Abstract : Xyloglucans are polysaccharides found as storage polymers in seeds and tubers, and as cross-linking glycans in the cell wall of plants. Their structure is complex with intricate branching patterns, which contribute to the physical properties of the polysaccharide including its binding to and interaction with other glycans such as cellulose.

  4. 4. On the engineering of proteins: methods and applications for carbohydrate-active enzymes

    Author : Fredrika Gullfot; Harry Brumer; Antoni Planas; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; enzyme engineering; rational design; directed evolution; DNA shuffling; glycosynthase; xyloglucan; xyloglucan endo-transglycosylase; retaining glycoside hydrolase; xyloglucanase; carbohydrate binding module; polysaccharide synthesis; Bioengineering; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents the application of different protein engineering methods on enzymes and non-catalytic proteins that act upon xyloglucans. Xyloglucans are polysaccharides found as storage polymers in seeds and tubers, and as cross-linking glucans in the cell wall of plants. READ MORE
