Cloning, expression and characterization of the recombinant cold-active type-I pullulanase from Shewanella arctica
Abstract An activity-based screening approach led to the identification of a novel glycoside hydrolase family-13 pullulanase gene (pul13A) from a psychrophilic bacterium. The recombinant enzymeExpand

Oxidative metabolism of the anti-cancer agent mitoxantrone by horseradish, lacto-and lignin peroxidase.
Mitoxantrone (MH(2)X), an anthraquinone-type anti-cancer agent used clinically in the treatment of human malignancies, is oxidatively activated by the peroxidase/H(2)O(2) enzyme system. In contrastExpand

Catalytic deoxygenation of microalgae oil to green hydrocarbons
Microalgae are high potential raw biomass material for triglyceride feedstock, due to their high oil content and rapid growth rate, and because algae cultivation does not compete with edible food onExpand

Extraction of microalgae derived lipids with supercritical carbon dioxide in an industrial relevant pilot plant
Microalgae are capable of producing up to 70% w/w triglycerides with respect to their dry cell weight. Since microalgae utilize the greenhouse gas CO2, they can be cultivated on marginal lands andExpand
