Glucuronoyl esterases (GEs) are recently discovered enzymes that are suggested to cleave the ester bond between lignin alcohols and xylan-bound 4-O-methyl-d-glucuronic acid. Although their potential use for enhanced enzymatic biomass degradation and synthesis of valuable chemicals renders them attractive research targets for biotechnological applications, the difficulty to purify natural fractions of lignin-carbohydrate complexes hampers the characterization of fungal GEs. In this work, we… CONTINUE READING
