    Most Saccharomyces spp. cannot degrade or ferment dextrin, which is the second most abundant carbohydrate in wort for commercial beer production. Dextrin-degrading brewer's bottom and top yeasts expressing the glucoamylase gene ( GAM1) from Debaryomyces occidentalis were developed to produce...

    Glucoamylase obtained from Rhizopus sp. is frequently preferred for certain applications of starch modification or saccharification. The predominant enzyme, which contains a starch-binding domain on the amino terminus, has been previously characterized from several species. Additionally, the...

    We investigated the influence of anchor length on the reactivity to polymer substrate of enzyme displayed on yeast cell surfaces. Using various lengths [42, 102, 146, 318, 428, and 1,326 amino acids (aa)] of the C-terminal region of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae Flo1 protein (Flo1p), which plays...

    Glucoamylases, containing starch-binding domains (SBD), have a wide range of scientific and industrial applications. Random mutagenesis and DNA shuffling of the gene encoding a starch-binding domain have resulted in only minor improvements in the affinities of the corresponding protein to their...
