Inulin consists of linear chains of β-2,1-linked D-fructofuranose molecules terminated by a glucose residue through a sucrose-type linkage at the reducing end. In this review article, inulin and its applications in bioprocesses are overviewed. The tubers of many plants, such as Jerusalem artichoke, chicory, dahlia, and yacon contain a large amount of(More)
The INU1 gene (Accession number: JX073660) encoding exo-inulinase from Cryptococcus aureus HYA was cloned and characterized. The gene had an open reading frame (ORF) of 1653 bp long encoding an inulinase. The coding region of the gene was not interrupted by any intron. It encoded 551 amino acid residues of a protein with a putative signal peptide of 23(More)
It has been reported that trehalose plays an important role in stress tolerance in yeasts. Therefore, in order to construct a stably recombinant Saccharomyces sp. W0 with higher ethanol tolerance, the TPS1 gene encoding 6-phosphate-trehalose synthase cloned from Saccharomycopsis fibuligera A11 was ligated into the 18S rDNA integration vector pMIRSC11 and(More)
