    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.

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. Probing Interactions between Bio-Fibre Components

    Author : Niklas Nordgren; Mark Rutland; Harry Brumer; Vincent Bulone; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; AFM; QCM-D; cellulose; xyloglucan; surface forces; friction; colloidal probe; nanotribology; biomimetic; enzymatic; polysaccharide; self assembly; grafting; thiol; spring constant; calibration; photodetector calibration.; Surface and colloid chemistry; Yt- och kolloidkemi;

    Abstract : I den här avhandlingen har atomkrafts mikroskopi (AFM) och kvartskristall mikrovåg med dissipation (QCM-D) används för att undersöka interaktioner i bio-fiber modell system av cellulosa och xyloglukan (XG); en naturligt förekommande polysackarid viktig för tillväxt av träd och andra växter. Dessutom har det avgörande momentet av friktionskrafts-kalibrering studerats för att erhålla noggranna och kvantitativa resultat med kolloidal prob AFM. READ MORE
