Engineering of Pichia stipitis for enhanced xylan utilization
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2003-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Plant biomass, the most abundant renewable resource in nature, consists of matrices of mainly lignin, cellulose, hemicellulose as well as inorganic components. Xylan, the major hemicellulose component ...
Engineering cellulolytic ability into bioprocessing organisms
Lignocellulosic biomass is an abundant renewable feedstock for sustainable production of commodities such as biofuels. The main technological barrier that prevents widespread utilization of this resource for production of ...
High level secretion of cellobiohydrolases by Saccharomyces cerevisiae
(BioMed Central, 2011-09)
BACKGROUND: The main technological impediment to widespread utilization of lignocellulose for the production of fuels and chemicals is the lack of low-cost technologies to overcome its recalcitrance. Organisms that hydrolyze ...
Functional expression of cellobiohydrolases in Saccharomyces cerevisiae towards one-step conversion of cellulose to ethanol
To investigate the possible use of Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a candidate for consolidated bioprocessing (CBP) of cellulose to ethanol, four fungal cellobiohydrolase (CBH) encoding genes (Trichoderma reesei cbh1 and cbh2, ...
Combined cell‑surface displayand secretion‑based strategies for production of cellulosic ethanol with Saccharomyces cerevisiae
(BioMed Central, 2015-09-26)
Background: Engineering Saccharomyces cerevisiae to produce heterologous cellulases is considered as a promising strategy for production of bioethanol from lignocellulose. The production of cellulase is usually pursued ...
