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 ...
Utilising Grape Pomace for Ethanol Production
(South African Society for Enology and Viticulture, 2002)
Chemical analyses of grape pomace revealed the presence of significant amounts of fermentable sugars that are retained in the pomace after pressing of the grapes. Furthermore, treatment of the pomace with purified hydrolases ...
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, ...
