The soft rot fungus Penicillium purpurogenum secretes a wide variety of xylanolytic enzymes to the medium, among them three alpha-l-arabinofuranosidases. This work refers to arabinofuranosidase 2… Expand
Comparison of different types of pretreatment and enzymatic saccharification of Macrocystis pyrifera for the production of biofuel
In this work, the brown algae Macrocystis pyrifera were pretreated with dilute sulfuric acid, water and three different types of ionic liquids (ILs): 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate ([EMIM][OAc… Expand

ABSTRACT The soft rot fungus Penicillium purpurogenum grows on a variety of natural substrates and secretes various isoforms of xylanolytic enzymes, including three arabinofuranosidases. This work… Expand
Penicillium purpurogenum produces a family 1 acetyl xylan esterase containing a carbohydrate-binding module: characterization of the protein and its gene.
At least three acetyl xylan esterases (AXE I, II and III) are secreted by Penicillium purpurogenum. This publication describes more detailed work on AXE I and its gene. AXE I binds cellulose but not… Expand
Thermal Stability of Phosphoenolpyruvate Carboxykinases from Escherichia coli, Trypanosoma brucei, and Saccharomyces cerevisiae
The quaternary structure of ATP-dependent phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) carboxykinases is variable. Thus, the carboxykinases from Escherichia coli, Trypanosoma brucei, and Saccharomyces cerevisiae are… Expand
The role of alginate lyases in the enzymatic saccharification of brown macroalgae, Macrocystis pyrifera and Saccharina latissima
Abstract In this work, we have compared the carbohydrate content and the enzymatic saccharification of the brown algae Macrocystis pyrifera from Chile and Saccharina latissima from Norway. M .… Expand

β-Xylosidases participate in xylan biodegradation, liberating xylose from the non-reducing end of xylooligosaccharides. The fungus Penicillium purpurogenum secretes two enzymes with β-D-xylosidase… Expand
Aqueous Extraction of the Sulfated Polysaccharide Ulvan from the Green Alga Ulva rigida—Kinetics and Modeling
The incentives for utilizing a versatile range of renewable feedstocks in novel ways are continuously increasing. Sulfated polysaccharides from green algae, such as ulvan, are interesting due to the… Expand
Α-L-arabinofuranosidase 3 from Penicillium purpurogenum (ABF3): potential application in the enhancement of wine flavour and heterologous expression of the enzyme.
An α-l-arabinofuranosidase (ABF3) from Penicillium purpurogenum was purified and its possible biotechnological application in the enhancement of wine flavour combined with P. purpurogenum… Expand
