EUCODIS‘ scientists contribute to new findings on structural and functional variations on chitin-binding domains of a lytic polysaccharide monooxygenase

Chitin is one of the most common structure giving polysaccharides and can be naturally found in e.g. fungi and arthropods. It is used to produce the commercially interesting chitosan, which has increasing applications in industries like pharma, agriculture and food, textile and cosmetics. The degradation of chitin to chitosan is carried out by deacetylation, either using alkaline or in a more environmentally friendly manner via biocatalysts.


Among others, the lytic polysaccharide…

EUCODIS expands its Candida antarctica lipase panel

Based on the overwhelming success of Candida antarctica lipase B (CalB) variants introduced in 2017, EUCODIS Bioscience has now expanded its CalB collection with novel immobilized variants.


Lipases belong to the family of esterases and naturally convert triglycerides and fats into fatty acids and glycerol in aqueous conditions. The opposite reaction is catalyzed if water is absent and, consequently, lipases can be used as versatile tools in hydrolytic, esterification and transesterification…
