Raw starch conversion by Saccharomyces cerevisiae expressing Aspergillus tubingensis amylases
(BioMed Central, 2013-11)
Background: Starch is one of the most abundant organic polysaccharides available for the production of bio-ethanol as an alternative transport fuel. Cost-effective utilisation of starch requires consolidated bioprocessing ...
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 ...
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, ...
Modeling the minimum enzymatic requirements for optimal cellulose conversion
(IoP Publising, 2013-04)
Hydrolysis of cellulose is achieved by the synergistic action of endoglucanases, exoglucanases and -glucosidases. Most cellulolytic microorganisms produce a varied array of these enzymes and the relative roles of the ...
