Identification of Regulatory Genes and Metabolic Processes Important for Alginate Biosynthesis in Azotobacter vinelandii by Screening of a Transposon Insertion Mutant Library
Azotobacter vinelandii produces the biopolymer alginate, which has a wide range of industrial and pharmaceutical applications. A random transposon insertion mutant library was constructed from A. vinelandii ATCC12518Tc in order to identify genes and pathways affecting alginate biosynthesis, and abou...
Assessment of the properties of chitin deacetylases showing different enzymatic action patterns
Engineering chitinolytic activity into a cellulose-active lytic polysaccharide monooxygenase provides insights into substrate specificity
CARACTERIZACIÓN DE CEPAS DE BACILLUS SP. CON APLICACIÓN INDUSTRIAL AISLADAS DE MADERA EN DESCOMPOSICIÓN
La necesidad de encontrar nuevos microrganismos de interés industrial ha llevado a buscarlos en ambientes diversos. Por ello, un nicho ecológico poco estudiado en relación con las bacterias, pero que puede albergar microorganismos de interés, es la madera en degradación. Esta degradación es un proc...
Exploring the great potential of an Actinobacteria strain collection from Trondheim fjord for the discovery of novel antibiotics and enzyme systems for biomass degradation
Industrial applications of different strains of Bacillus spp. isolated from decayed wood
This work has been focused on the isolation and characterization of microorganism from decayed wood. 357 bacterial species were isolated from different wood samples and European locations. 25% of them belong to the Bacillus genus, which are known as producer metabolites and enzymes suitable for bio...
Soft alginate hydrogels modified with bioactive peptides as extracellular matrices for 3D fibroblast culture
Microbiomes of decaying wood
Wood and wood derived materials are versatile and in widespread use. To withstand the constant threat of degradation by climatic and biotic agents (e.g. molds and insects), preservation is a continuous challenge. New environmental regulations have changed wood decay prevention from traditional tox...
