Microbial lipases are highly appreciated as biocatalysts due to their peculiar characteristics such as the ability to utilize a wide range of substrates, high activity and stability in organic solvents, and regio- and/or enantioselectivity. These enzymes are currently being applied in a variety of biotechnological processes, including detergent preparation,(More)
The need to find more stable catalysts has encouraged the study of naturally resilient enzymes, such as those found in extremophile organisms. In the present work, the influence of rare codons on the expression in Escherichia coli of the lipase Pf2001Δ60 from Pyrococcus furiosus was evaluated. Expression was carried out in two E. coli strains,(More)
Yeast Surface Display (YSD) is a strategy to anchor proteins on the yeast cell wall which has been employed to increase enzyme stability thus decreasing production costs. Lipase B from Candida antarctica (LipB) is one of the most studied enzymes in the context of industrial biotechnology. This study aimed to assess the biochemical features of this important(More)
