  1. 1. Immobilization of feruloyl esterases in mesoporous silica

    Författare :Christian Thörn; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mesoporous materials; Feruloyl esterases; Protein modeling; Biocatalysis; QCM-D; Hydroxycinnamic acids; Enzyme immobilization; Silica;

    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

  2. 2. Towards Classification and Functional Description of Enzymes: A case study of feruloyl esterases

    Författare :Gupta Udatha; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; descriptors; enzyme immobilization; catalytic triad; pharmacophore; enzyme promiscuity; functional classification; molecular docking; feruloyl esterases; protein evolution; structure-function relationship;

    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.

  3. 3. Feruloyl esterases - Evaluation of their potential for biotechnological applications

    Författare :Cyrielle Bonzom; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; multi-domain enzyme; acetyl esterase; enzyme immobilization; N-glycosylation; carbohydrate active enzyme family 1; acetyl xylan esterase; heterologous production; polysaccharide utilization loci; enzyme stability; feruloyl esterase;

    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

  4. 4. Use of feruloyl esterases for chemoenzymatic synthesis of bioactive compounds

    Författare :Io Antonopoulou; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Biokemisk processteknik; Biochemical Process Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : Feruloyl esterases (FAEs, EC 3.1.1.73) 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.

  5. 5. Enzyme Immobilization in Mesoporous Silica

    Författare :Hanna Gustafsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; immobilization; lipase; Mesoporous; particle morphology; feruloyl esterase; enzyme; encapsulation; silica; pore size; trypsin;

    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
