Past studies have revealed major difficulties in applications of xylanase in the pulp and paper industry as enzymes isolated from many different species could not tolerate high temperatures or highly alkaline conditions. The thermostable xylanase A from Bacillus halodurans C-125 (C-125 xylanase A) was successfully cloned and expressed in Pichia pastoris(More)
UNLABELLED The methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris is an attractive platform for a plethora of recombinant proteins. There is growing evidence that host cells producing recombinant proteins are exposed to a variety of cellular stresses resulting in the induction of the unfolded protein response (UPR) pathway. At present, there is only limited information(More)
To develop a high efficiency Candida antarctica lipase B (CALB) yeast display system, we linked two CALB genes fused with Sacchromyces cerevisiae cell wall protein genes, the Sed1 and the 3′-terminal half of Sag1, separately by a 2A peptide of foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) in a single open reading frame. The CALB copy number of recombinant strain(More)
Conventional lipase screening methods are mostly based on hydrolytic activity, which may not always be the best method to assess the enzyme activity, especially for evaluating synthetic activity. Here we developed a high throughput and visual method to screen clones with high synthetic activity and used it to assess lipases thermostability. All mutants'(More)
Altering -1 frameshifting efficiency of L-A virus in yeast T158c/S14a will result in loss of M1 virus and reduction of toxin K1, which induced a diminished of inhibition zone. According to the size of inhibition zone on methylene blue flat with low pH, a model for screening anti-viral agents was developed. The conditions of assaying killing activity by well(More)
Measuring the viability of the cells after chemical or physical stresses is a routine method in the determination of phenotypes in yeast. Numerous analytical techniques have been applied to the measurement of yeast cell viability, but few of them are suitable for real-time monitoring. Here we propose a microplate-based method for real-time monitoring of(More)
