WoodZymes 36-month meeting

WoodZymes 36-Month consortium meeting The WoodZymes 36-month consortium meeting was held online last 25-26 May 2021. With only 6 months left before concluding the project this was an important moment to discuss the final work that needs to be carried out in order to achieve our objectives! A lot of results [...]

Cladogram of the GH10 family

New scientific paper on xylanase Xyn11, active at extreme conditions of temperature and alkalinity One of the initial objectives of the European Project WoodZymes (www.woodzymes.eu) was to obtain a xylanase biocatalyst active at extreme conditions of temperature and alkaline pH, suitable for use in the pulp and paper industry. An enzyme with the desired characteristics, [...]

Designing a universal signal peptide for enzyme production in yeast

NEW PAPER OUT!! Design of an improved universal signal peptide to enhance enzyme production in yeast Enhancing recombinant enzyme secretion in yeast is essential to conduct protein engineering and related studies. Researchers from CIB-CSIC report here the design of a universal, optimized signal peptide to improve the production of fungal enzymes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, [...]

Enzyme Directed Evolution

Protein Engineering Approaches to Enhance Fungal Laccase Production in S. cerevisiae Enzyme directed evolution is a powerful technique to design efficient and robust biocatalysts for the industry. Through iterations of mutagenesis and selection it is possible to confer new or improved properties to optimise enzyme’s performance at industrial operation c [...]

3D structure of a xylanase

In search of a "superxylanase" Our partner IATA-CSIC has recently published an article in Biotechnology for Biofuels, dealing with the search for new xylanases with extremophilic properties using bioinformatic tools. In this note, they explain the main objectives and results of the paper, which entail [...]

Directed evolution cycle

NEW POST!! Enzyme directed evolution for the design of industrial biocatalysts Directed molecular evolution is a state-or-the-art biotech tool used to confer enzymes new features, such as new or improved catalytic activities and/or increased stability under non-natural conditions. In WoodZymes, our partner CIB-CSIC is applying this powerful technique [...]
