Breaking down stubborn cellulose in time lapse

New perspectives for applications in industrial biorefineries

22-May-2020

Researchers at TU Graz in Austria have for the first time ever succeeded in visualizing at the single-molecule level the processes involved in a biological nanomachine, known as the cellulosome, as it degrades crystalline cellulose. The fundamental insights thus obtained could support sustainable ...

Key to rubustness of plants discovered

Mechanism of Adipose-Biosynthesis decoded – the basis for the production of sugar molecules for neu fine chemicals or biopharmaceuticals

27-Nov-2019

In every weather situation, plants need to be robust and flexible at the same time. These structural properties come from its cell wall: It’s responsible to keep the plant in shape, to compensate its osmotic pressure and to protect it against pathogens e.g. bacteria, viruses or fungal attacks. ...

New method for quicker and simpler production of lipidated proteins

15-Oct-2019

Some of the body’s proteins are not just made up of amino acids, they are also ‘decorated’ with lipid chains, which significantly influence the biological functions of the protein. An example is the Ras protein, which plays a role in the development of many types of cancers and is only active and ...

Photosynthetic microalgae as biocatalysts

The biocatalytic production of chemicals should become considerably more sustainable

06-Mar-2018

A carpet of blue-green algae can literally ‘cloud’ the summer’s swimming pleasure at the lake. This is caused by a few strains of photosynthetically active microalgae, also known as cyanobacteria. Other harmless strains of cyanobacteria have great potential for biotechnological applications and ...

Combating sulphuric acid corrosion at wastewater plants

Microbial induced concrete corrosion causes massive damage to wastewater plants

26-Feb-2018

Wastewater systems are integral to infrastructure in every community. In an ideal world, they operate smoothly and are long-lasting. But biogenic transformation processes in sewage and water treatment systems are a “natural enemy” of conventional plants, frequently causing damage to concrete and ...
