We are happy to announce the publication of our work on modular hemicellulose production in Biotechnology for Biofuels, a leading (open-access!) journal for advancing the biological production of fuels, chemicals, and biomaterials. Here, we describe how enzymes from the cellulose synthase-like superfamily (found throughout the plant kingdom) can be assembled as modular parts (akin to… Continue reading Building modular hemicellulose synthases, now out in Biotechnology for Biofuels
We significantly revised our preprint on the modular biosynthesis of plant heteromannans and uploaded the new version to bioRxiv. Full-text: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.04.20.440611v2.full
We are happy to have contributed to a new publication that appeared in Science Advances on the February 10. This study unveils how jasmonate signaling is initiated in the korrigan1 (kor1) cellulose-deficient mutant, and multiple ways in which it can be complemented. The work was lead by Stefan Mielke in Debora Gasperini\’s research group at IPB… Continue reading February publication update
By evaluating different mutant combinations, we discovered that brassica seeds with fewer heteromannan branches are more resistant to salt stress.
Wheat is one of the most important cereal crops on the planet. Here, we investigated the wheat enzymes are responsible for synthesizing mannan, a dietary fiber.
