Recombinant alkaline polygalacturonate lyase (PGL) production by recombinant Pichia pastoris GS115 was selected as a model to study as a continuous culture strategy for enhancing heterologous protein production based on controlling methanol feeding (CCCM culture) or on dual carbon source feeding (CCCD culture). Using the CCCM process with a dry cell weight(More)
Oxidized polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) hydrolase (OPH) is a key enzyme in the degradation of PVA, suggesting that OPH has a great potential for application in textile desizing processes. In this study, the OPH gene from Sphingopyxis sp. 113P3 was modified, by artificial synthesis, for overexpression in Escherichia coli. The OPH gene, lacking the sequence encoding(More)
A 1,965-bp fragment encoding a poly(vinyl alcohol) dehydrogenase (PVADH) from Sphingopyxis sp. 113P3 was synthesized based on the codon bias of the methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris. The fragment was then amplified by polymerase chain reaction and inserted into the site between EcoRI and NotI sites in pPIC9K, which was under the control of the AOX1(More)
Poly(vinyl alcohol) dehydrogenase (PVADH, EC is an enzyme which has potential application in textile industry to degrade the poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) in waste water. Previously, a 1,965-bp fragment encoding a PVADH from Sphingopyxis sp. 113P3 was synthesized based on the replacement of the rare codons in Escherichia coli (E. coli). In this work,(More)
Based on the N-terminal sequencing of poly (vinyl alcohol) dehydrogenase (PVADH), a 1,644-bp gene encoding a truncated PVADH (tPVADH) was amplified using the synthetic gene (GenBank accession No. JQ235753) as a template, and was further transformed into Pichia pastoris GS115 with the vector pPIC9K. The maximal tPVADH activity reached 546 U/mL in shake(More)
The ever-increasing production and use of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) threaten our environment. Yet PVA can be assimilated by microbes in two steps: oxidation and cleavage. Here we report novel α/β-hydrolase structures of oxidized PVA hydrolase (OPH) from two known PVA-degrading organisms, Sphingopyxis sp. 113P3 and Pseudomonas sp. VM15C, including complexes(More)
