The lipase genes of Yarrowia lipolytica, LIPY7 and LIPY8, fused with FLO-flocculation domain sequence from Saccharomyces cerevisiae at their N-termini, were expressed in Pichia pastoris KM71. Following the induction with methanol, the recombinant proteins were displayed on the cell surface of P. pastoris, as confirmed by the confocal laser scanning(More)
A lipase-producing bacterium K107 was isolated from soil samples of China and identified to be a strain of Proteus sp. With genome-walking method, the open reading frame of lipase gene lipK107, encoding 287 amino acids, was cloned and expressed in a heterologous host, Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3). The recombinant lipase was purified and characterized, and(More)
A novel surface-display system was constructed using the cell-wall anchor protein Flo1p from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the mannanase (man1) from Bacillus subtilis fused with the C-terminus of Flo1p and the 6xHis tag was inserted between Flo1p and man1. The fusion protein was displayed on the cell surface of Yarrowia lipolytica successfully, and it was(More)
The yeast vectors described, pYEV and pYEVB, were designed for parallel polymerase chain reaction (PCR) cloning of open reading frames (ORFs) and immediate protein expression in Pichia pastoris. The pYEV vector was used to clone PCR fragments obtained by using Taq or similar polymerase mixes, which leave an A-base overhang. The other vector pYEVB, with the(More)
Two Pichia pastoris cell surface display vectors were constructed. The vectors consisted of the flocculation functional domain of Flo1p with its own secretion signal sequence or the alpha-factor secretion signal sequence, a polyhistidine (6xHis) tag for detection, an enterokinase recognition site, and the insertion sites for target proteins. Adenoregulin(More)
We isolated two lipase genes LIPY7, LIPY8 from Yarrowia lipolytica CGMCC (China general microbiological culture collection center) AS 2.1216. The LIPY7 and LIPY8 genes encode a 366 and a 371-amino acid protein, respectively. The lipase genes with 6 x His tag sequence were cloned into expression vector pPIC9K and successfully integrated into a heterologous(More)
BACKGROUND For industrial bioconversion processes, the utilization of surface-displayed lipase in the form of whole-cell biocatalysts is more advantageous, because the enzymes are displayed on the cell surface spontaneously, regarded as immobilized enzymes. RESULTS Two Pichia pastoris cell surface display vectors based on the flocculation functional(More)
Two novel lipase genes (lipJ02, lipJ03) were isolated directly from environmental DNA via genome-walking method. Lipase gene lipJ02 contained an open reading frame (ORF) of 1,425 bp and encoded a 474-amino acids lipase protein, while lipase gene lipJ03 contained an ORF of 1,413 bp and encoded a 470-amino acids lipase protein. The lipase genes were cloned(More)
A lipase-producing bacterium strain B68 screened from soil samples of China was identified as Pseudomonas fluorescens. With GenomeWalker, the open reading frame of lipase gene lipB68, encoding 476 amino acids, was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3). By affinity chromatography, the recombinant LipB68 protein was purified to the purity of(More)
Cellulose is an abundant natural polysaccharide that is universally distributed. It can be extracted from corncobs, which are inexpensive, easily accessible, renewable, and environmentally friendly. A common strategy for effectively utilizing cellulose is efficient heterogeneous expression of cellulase genes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. However, the(More)
