Termites are social insects that live in colonies dividing the labor between castes. Generally, these insects are decomposers and their diet is mainly based on lignocellulosic compounds. The worker caste is responsible for the degradation of cellulose and hemicellulose, and this process can reach about 75-90% of efficiency. Moreover, the lignin is partially degraded or modified during t...
Bioproducts are considered a clean and sustainable energy product, and the transformation of plant cell wall polysaccharides into fermentable sugars are the main challenges of this production chain. The use of carbohydrate-active proteins in this procedure is extremely important and characterization of new genes and enzymes complementary to this approach will be of great interesting fo...
Termites are social insects that play a fundamental role in carbon cycling in tropical forests and savannas. They display labor division among their castes and are highly efficient in lignocellulose degradation. Our group has described that oxidative enzymes could be involved in plant biomass digestion in lower termite guts along with glycoside hydrolases. Additionally, unpublished data...
Termites are social insects that play fundamental roles in carbon cycling in tropical forests. They display labor division among their castes and are highly efficient at lignocellulose degradation. Recently, the literature has suggested that auxiliary redox mechanisms could occur in termites for plant biomass breakdown. Based on this hypothesis, we started in 2012 the PhD project to try...
