Optimizing D-xylose transport in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is essential for efficient bioethanol production from cellulosic materials. We have used a gene shuffling approach of hexose (Hxt) transporters in order to increase the affinity for D-xylose.

Lignocellulosic biomass belongs to main sustainable renewable sources for global energy supply. One of the main challenges in the conversion of saccharified lignocellulosic biomass into bioethanol is ...
d-Glucose, d-xylose and l-arabinose are major sugars in lignocellulosic hydrolysates. This study explores fermentation of glucose-xylose-arabinose mixtures by a consortium of three 'specialist' Saccha...
The conversion of pentoses into ethanol remains a challenge and could increase the supply of second-generation biofuels. This study sought to isolate naturally occurring yeasts from plant biomass and ...
The gamma-type inhibitor of snake venom phospholipase A (PLIγ) is expressed extensively in livers of both venomous and non-venomous snakes. It is not clear why PLIγs from different snake species pos...
Haploid laboratory strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae are commonly used for genetic engineering to enable their xylose utilization but little is known about the industrial yeast which is often recogn...
Aim: To investigate whether patients with pulmonary hypertension have reduced absorption capacity compared to COPD patients without cor pulmonale potentially due to venous obstruction in t...
The present study determined the effect of Xylose consumption on postprandial hyperglycemia in normal (n=25) and hyperglycemic subjects (n=50).
This study was designed to evaluate the long term effectiveness of a product used in knee surgery called Affinity™ Membrane.
To study the effect of Rozerem, a high affinity MT1 and MT2, low affinity 5-HT2B receptor agonist used for insomnia, as a migraine prophylactic agent.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the Seraph® Microbind® Affinity Blood Filter is safe in the treatment of dialysis patients with bacteremia from Staphylococcus aureus.
The use of DNA recombination (RECOMBINATION, GENETIC) to prepare a large gene library of novel, chimeric genes from a population of randomly fragmented DNA from related gene sequences.
An enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of ATP and a D-hexose to ADP and a D-hexose 6-phosphate. D-Glucose, D-mannose, D-fructose, sorbitol, and D-glucosamine can act as acceptors; ITP and dATP can act as donors. The liver isoenzyme has sometimes been called glucokinase. (From Enzyme Nomenclature, 1992) EC 184.108.40.206.
High affinity receptors for THYROID HORMONES, especially TRIIODOTHYRONINE. These receptors are usually found in the nucleus where they regulate DNA transcription. They are encoded by the THRB gene (also known as NR1A2, THRB1, or ERBA2 gene) as several isoforms produced by alternative splicing. Mutations in the THRB gene cause THYROID HORMONE RESISTANCE SYNDROME.
A high-affinity, ATP-binding, co-transporter for CARNITINE that is highly expressed in kidney, skeletal muscle, heart, and placental tissues. It transports one sodium ion with one carnitine molecule. It has a lower affinity for other organic cations and transports them independently of sodium. Mutations in the SLC22A5 gene are associated with systemic carnitine deficiency.
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
