Sammanfattning : Feruloyl esterases are a class of enzymes that can be used as biocatalysts for the modification of bioactive hydroxycinnamic acids. In industry, enzyme immobilization is often necessary to stabilize the enzymes and to allow their reuse. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The prediction of enzyme functionality from sequence or structure data remains a challenging task that can be best addressed by studying the structure-function relationships determined from previously available information. This thesis work was focused on developing a reliable classification and functional description for the feruloyl esterase (FAE) enzyme family, whose members’ possess both structural and catalytic promiscuity. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Owing to the current efforts to find sustainable alternatives to petrochemical based industries and technologies, enzymatic degradation and valorization of plant biomass has been attracting interest. Due to the complexity of plant biomass, an array of enzymes is required to hydrolyze it, including esterases. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Feruloyl esterases (FAEs, EC 220.127.116.11) represent a subclass of carboxylic acid esterases that under normal conditions catalyze the hydrolysis of the ester bond between hydroxycinnamic acids (ferulic acid, sinapic acid, caffeic acid, p-coumaric acid) and arabinose residues in plant cell walls.

Sammanfattning : Catalysts are widely used in many industries for production of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, fuels and energy. There is a need for more sustainable production processes, with reduced energy and raw material consumption together with a reduction in waste and toxic by-products. LÄS MER
