The production of bioactive compounds, alternative chemicals and biofuels from vegetal biomass is considered one of the most promising strategies to replace the current non-renewable petrochemical routes. One of the main challenges faced is the depolymerization of plant cell wall components, such as cellulose and hemicellulose into simple and/or fermentable sugars. The glycoside hydrola...
Cost-effective industrial manufacture of organic acids using Saccharomyces cerevisiae is impaired by an insufficient free-energy conservation during sucrose consumption in anaerobiosis. Therefore, research focusing on sucrose metabolism is necessary. In this context, this project aims at investigating the role of isomaltases in the aforementioned metabolism.
The family 5 of glycoside hydrolases (GH5) consists of more than 12000 members that recognize and hydrolyze a broad range of carbohydrates. For a better understanding of the great diversity of its enzymatic repertoire, Asperborg et al. (2012) classified the GH5 family into 51 subfamilies, from which 20 did not have available characterization data so far. In the current FAPESP doctoral p...
