dbCAN-seq: a database of carbohydrate-active enzyme (CAZyme) sequence and annotation.

Carbohydrate-active enzyme (CAZymes) are not only the most important enzymes for bioenergy and agricultural industries, but also very important for human health, in that human gut microbiota encode hundreds of CAZyme genes in their genomes for degrading various dietary and host carbohydrates. We have built an online database dbCAN-seq (http://cys.bios.niu.edu/dbCAN_seq) to provide pre-computed CAZyme sequence and annotation data for 5,349 bacterial genomes. Compared to the other CAZyme resources, dbCAN-seq ...


An integration of phenotypic and transcriptomic data analysis reveals yield-related hub genes in Jatropha curcas inflorescence.

Jatropha curcas is an oil-rich seed crop with huge potentials for bioenergy production. The inflorescence carries a number of processes that are likely to affect the overall yield potentials; floral development, male-to-female flower ratio, floral abscission and fruit set. In this study, a weighted gene co-expression network analysis which integrates the transcriptome, physical and simple sugar data of J. curcas inflorescence was performed and nine modules were identified by means of hierarchical clustering...

MitoMiner v4.0: an updated database of mitochondrial localization evidence, phenotypes and diseases.

Increasing numbers of diseases are associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. This is unsurprising given mitochondria have major roles in bioenergy generation, signalling, detoxification, apoptosis and biosynthesis. However, fundamental questions of mitochondrial biology remain, including: which nuclear genes encode mitochondrial proteins; how their expression varies with tissue; and which are associated with disease. But experiments to catalogue the mitochondrial proteome are incomplete and sometimes contr...


Crystal structure and functional characterization of a cold-active acetyl xylan esterase (PbAcE) from psychrophilic soil microbe Paenibacillus sp.

Cold-active acetyl xylan esterases allow for reduced bioreactor heating costs in bioenergy production. Here, we isolated and characterized a cold-active acetyl xylan esterase (PbAcE) from the psychrophilic soil microbe Paenibacillus sp. R4. The enzyme hydrolyzes glucose penta-acetate and xylan acetate, reversibly producing acetyl xylan from xylan, and it shows higher activity at 4°C than at 25°C. We solved the crystal structure of PbAcE at 2.1-Å resolution to investigate its active site and the reason fo...

Zero-waste algal biorefinery for bioenergy and biochar: A green leap towards achieving energy and environmental sustainability.

In spite of tremendous efforts and huge investments on resources, biodiesel from oleaginous microalgae has not yet become a commercially viable and sustainable alternative to petro-diesel. This is mainly because of the technological and economic challenges hovering around large scale cultivation and downstream processing of algae, water and land usage, stabilized production technology, market forces and government policies on alternative energy and carbon credits. This review attempts to capture and analyse...

Elucidation and analyses of the regulatory networks of upland and lowland ecotypes of switchgrass in response to drought and salt stresses.

Switchgrass is an important bioenergy crop typically grown in marginal lands, where the plants must often deal with abiotic stresses such as drought and salt. Alamo is known to be more tolerant to both stress types than Dacotah, two ecotypes of switchgrass. Understanding of their stress response and adaptation programs can have important implications to engineering more stress tolerant plants. We present here a computational study by analyzing time-course transcriptomic data of the two ecotypes to elucidate...

Controlled, easy, economical, and safe synthesis of nanomaterials is desired for the development of new-age nanotechnology. In general, nanomaterial synthesis techniques, such as chemical synthesis, are not completely safe or environmentally friendly due to harmful chemicals used or to toxic by-product...

Improvement of safflower oil quality for biodiesel production by integrated application of PGPR under reduced amount of NP fertilizers.

Safflower is an important industrial oil seed and bioenergy crop in semi-arid subtropical regions due to its potential to grow on marginal land and having good percentage of seed oil contents which is an important parameter for biofuel production. However, it is an ignored crop in Pakistan. In order to improve the crop productivity and reduce the use of agrochemicals for sustainable biodiesel feedstock production, an experiment was conducted for two years to improve the fatty acid composition and oil qualit...

Overexpression of the Sorghum bicolor SbCCoAOMT alters cell wall associated hydroxycinnamoyl groups.

Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) is a drought tolerant crop, which is being developed as a bioenergy feedstock. The monolignol biosynthesis pathway is a major focus for altering the abundance and composition of lignin. Caffeoyl coenzyme-A O-methyltransferase (CCoAOMT) is an S-adenosyl methionine (SAM)-dependent O-methyltransferase that methylates caffeoyl-CoA to generate feruloyl-CoA, an intermediate required for the biosynthesis of both G- and S-lignin. SbCCoAOMT was overexpressed to assess the impact of increasi...

Initial characterization of newly identified mitochondrial and chloroplast small HSPs from sugarcane shows that these chaperones have different oligomerization states and substrate specificities.

Chaperones belonging to the small heat shock protein (sHSP) family are ubiquitous and exhibit elevated expression under stresses conditions to protect proteins against aggregation, thereby contributing to the stress tolerance of the organism. Tropical plants are constantly exposed to high temperatures, and the mechanisms by which these plants tolerate heat stress are of foremost importance to basic science as well as applied agrobiotechnology. Therefore, this study aims to characterize sHSPs from different ...

Boosting mediated electron transfer in bioelectrochemical systems with tailored defined microbial co-cultures.

Bioelectrochemical systems (BES) hold great promise for sustainable energy generation via a microbial catalyst from organic matter, e.g., from wastewater. In order to improve current generation in BES, understanding the underlying microbiology of the electrode community is essential. Electron mediator producing microorganism like Pseudomonas aeruginosa play an essential role in efficient electricity generation in BES. These microbes enable even non-electroactive microorganism like Enterobacter aerogenes to ...

At the core of the socio-ecological transition: Agroecosystem energy fluxes in Austria 1830-2010.

Analyses of energy efficiency in biomass production offer important insights in the context of sustainable land management and biomass production. However, much of the previous research on the topic has focused on the energy efficiency of either food or energy provision. Only recently, comprehensive analyses at the total agroecosystem level have been operationalized, studying long-term change in agroecosystem energetics in the course of the socio-ecological transition. We contribute to this line of research...

Climate change decreases suitable areas for rapeseed cultivation in Europe but provides new opportunities for white mustard as an alternative oilseed for biofuel production.

Oilseed crops, including several mustards, are cultivated as biofuel sources worldwide. However, common mustard crops (e.g., the rapeseed Brassica napus) grow naturally in mesic temperate regions, which are expected to be impaired by global warming and increased aridity. In particular, increased aridity is predicted to reduce the oil concentration and seed yield of rapeseed crops. There is therefore an urgent need to identify alternative bioenergy crops that are preadapted to future climatic conditions. An ...

Construction of Uniform Monolayer- and Orientation Tunable Enzyme Electrode by a Synthetic Glucose Dehydrogenase without Electron Transfer Subunit via Optimized Site-Specific Gold Binding Peptide Capable of Direct Electron Transfer.

The direct electron transfer (DET) between enzymes and electrodes is a key issue for practical use of bioelectrocatalytic devices as a bioenergy process, such as enzymatic electrosynthesis, biosensors and enzyme biofuel cells. To date, based on the DET of bioelectrocatalysis, less than 1% of the calculated theoretical current was transferred to final electron acceptor due to energy loss at enzyme-electrode interface. This study describes the design and construction of a synthetic glucose dehydrogenase (GDH;...

Catabolic repression in early-diverging anaerobic fungi is partially mediated by natural antisense transcripts.

Early-diverging anaerobic fungi (order: Neocallimastigomycota), lignocelluolytic chytrid-like fungi central to fiber degradation in the digestive tracts of large herbivores, are attractive sources of cellulases and hemicellulases for biotechnology. Enzyme expression is tightly regulated and coordinated through mechanisms that remain unelucidated to optimize hydrolytic efficiency. Our analysis of anaerobic fungal transcriptomes reveals hundreds of cis-natural antisense transcripts (cis-NATs), which we hypoth...
