Biochemical properties of free and immobilized Candida viswanathii lipase on octyl-agarose support: Hydrolysis of triacylglycerol and soy lecithin
Microbial lipases are important enzymes in food and pharmaceutical industries. In this work, a Candida viswanathii lipase was purified by hydrophobic interaction chromatography on octyl Sepharose. The purification presented ...
Pectin and pectinases: Production, characterization and industrial application of microbial pectinolytic enzymes
Pectinases are a big group of enzymes that break down pectic polysaccharides of plant tissues into simpler molecules like galacturonic acids. It has long been used to increase yields and clarity of fruit juices. Since ...
Purification, characterization, and specificity determination of a new serine protease secreted by penicillium waksmanii
The purpose of this work was to purify a protease from Penicillium waksmanii and to determine its biochemical characteristics and specificity. The extracellular protease isolated that was produced by P. waksmanii is a ...
Antioxidant enzyme activity and hydrogen peroxide content during the drying of Arabica coffee beans
The development of the germination process and drought stress during the drying of coffee can generate reactive oxygen species, which can be neutralized by way of antioxidant mechanisms. No studies related to antioxidant ...
Chorismate synthase: An attractive target for drug development against orphan diseases
The increase in incidence of infectious diseases worldwide, particularly in developing countries, is worrying. Each year, 14 million people are killed by infectious diseases, mainly HIV/AIDS, respiratory infections, malaria ...
