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 [...]
