The genes encoding the catalytic domains (CD) of the three endoglucanases (EG I; Cel7B, EG II; Cel5A, and EG III; Cel12A) from Trichoderma reesei QM9414 were expressed in Escherichia coli strains Rosetta-gami B (DE3) pLacI or Origami B (DE3) pLacI and were found to produce functional intracellular proteins. Protein production by the three endoglucanase(More)
To develop a Trichoderma reesei strain appropriate for the saccharification of pretreated cellulosic biomass, a recombinant T. reesei strain, X3AB1, was constructed that expressed an Aspergillus aculeatus β-glucosidase 1 with high specific activity under the control of the xyn3 promoter. The culture supernatant from T. reesei X3AB1 grown on 1% Avicel as a(More)
Although the capabilities of Trichoderma reesei cellulases have been greatly improved, these enzymes are still too costly for commercial use. The aim of this research was to assess the biomass saccharification capability of JN11, a recombinant cellulase, compared with that of the commercially available cellulases Accellerase 1500 and Cellic CTec. The(More)
The ability of the Trichoderma reesei X3AB1strain enzyme preparations to convert cellulosic biomass into fermentable sugars is enhanced by the replacement of xyn3 by Aspergillus aculeatus β-glucosidase 1 gene (aabg1), as shown in our previous study. However, subsequent experiments using T. reesei extracts supplemented with the glycoside hydrolase (GH)(More)
The stability and specific activity of endo-β-1,4-glucanase III from Trichoderma reesei QM9414 was enhanced, and the expression efficiency of its encoding gene, egl3, was optimized by directed evolution using error-prone PCR and activity screening in Escherichia coli RosettaBlue (DE3) pLacI as a host. Relationship between increase in yield of active enzyme(More)
The aim of this study was a comprehensive analysis of the effects of the component enzymes of cellulase derived from Trichoderma reesei strain PC-3-7 on biomass saccharification. We used cellulases with deleted CBH I, CBH II, or EG I, which contain all other component enzymes, for saccharification of differently pretreated biomasses of rice straw,(More)
The capacity of Trichoderma reesei cellulase to degrade lignocellulosic biomass has been enhanced by the construction of a recombinant T. reesei strain expressing Aspergillus aculeatus β-glucosidase I. We have confirmed highly efficient ethanol production from converge-milled Japanese cedar by recombinant T. reesei expressing A. aculeatus β-glucosidase I(More)
The grating substrate covered with a metal layer, a plasmonic chip, and a bispecific antibody can play a key role in the sensitive detection of a marker protein with an immunosensor, because of the provision of an enhanced fluorescence signal and the preparation of a sensor surface densely modified with capture antibody, respectively. In this study, one of(More)
As a complementary tool to nanofluidics, biomolecular-based transport is envisioned for nanotechnological devices. We report a new method for guiding microtubule shuttles on multi-walled carbon nanotube tracks, aligned by dielectrophoresis on a functionalized surface. In the absence of electric field and in fluid flow, alignment is maintained. The directed(More)
Trichoderma reesei is a filamentous organism that secretes enzymes capable of degrading cellulose to cellobiose. The culture supernatant of T. reesei, however, lacks sufficient activity to convert cellobiose to glucose using β-glucosidase (BGL1). In this study, we identified a BGL (Cel3B) from T. reesei (TrCel3B) and compared it with the active(More)
