Thermophilic two-phase anaerobic digestion using an innovative fixed-bed reactor for enhanced organic matter removal and bioenergy recovery from sugarcane vinasse
This study considered the application of anaerobic digestion (AD) with phase separation combined with the use of an anaerobic structured-bed reactor (ASTBR) as the methanogenic phase for theExpand
Comparative genomics reveals high biological diversity and specific adaptations in the industrially and medically important fungal genus Aspergillus
TLDR
Comparative studies of key aspects of fungal biology, including primary and secondary metabolism, stress response, biomass degradation, and signal transduction, revealed both conservation and diversity among the species, allowing for the first time a genus-wide view of the biological diversity of the aspergilli. Expand
Comparative Secretome Analysis of Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger during Growth on Sugarcane Biomass
TLDR
This work provides a detailed qualitative and semi-quantitative secretome analysis of A. niger and T. reesei grown on sugarcane biomass and indicates that a combination of enzymes from both fungi is an interesting option to increase saccharification efficiency. Expand
The Penicillium echinulatum Secretome on Sugar Cane Bagasse
TLDR
The approach conducted in this study gave new insights on the better comprehension of the composition and degradation capability of an industrial cellulolytic strain, from which a number of applied technologies, such as biofuel production, can be generated. Expand
Dissecting structure-function-stability relationships of a thermostable GH5-CBM3 cellulase from Bacillus subtilis 168.
TLDR
Functional and structural characterization of the thermostable BsCel5A (Bacillus subtilis cellulase 5A) revealed that the Bacillus CBM3 represents a new subfamily, which lacks the classical calcium-binding motif, and variations in NMR frequencies in the presence of cellopentaose showed the importance of polar residues in the carbohydrate interaction. Expand
Functional characterization and synergic action of fungal xylanase and arabinofuranosidase for production of xylooligosaccharides.
TLDR
The hypersecretion of an endo-xylanase and an arabinofuranosidase by a fungal expression system with potential biotechnological application are described, along with comprehensive characterization of both enzymes, including spectrometric analysis of thermal denaturation, biochemical characterization and mode of action description. Expand
A novel thermostable xylanase GH10 from Malbranchea pulchella expressed in Aspergillus nidulans with potential applications in biotechnology
TLDR
The heterologous expression and biochemical characterization of a novel thermostable xylanase (GH10) from the thermophilic fungus Malbranchea pulchella, the influence of glycosylation on its stability, and a potential application in sugarcane bagasse hydrolysis are reported. Expand
Structure and Function of a Novel Cellulase 5 from Sugarcane Soil Metagenome
TLDR
A novel cellulase with unusual catalytic properties from sugarcane soil metagenome isolated and characterized, which encodes a unique glycoside hydrolase domain belonging to GH5 family and could be potentially employed in biotechnological processes that require thermotolerant and alkaline cellulases. Expand
PRODUCTION OF CAROTENOIDS BY RHODOTORULA RUBRA AND R. GLUTINIS IN CULTURE MEDIUM SUPPLEMENTED WITH SUGAR CANE JUICE
TLDR
Sugar cane juice, an abundant agricultural product in Brazil, was investigated as the main substrate for the culture of Rhodotorula rubra and R. glutinis, and greater carotenoid production was accomplished by lower cell growth. Expand
