Fatty acid modifications

We are working with hydrolases and oxidoreductases for fatty acid modifications.

Biocatalysis

Our work in biocatalysis focuses mainly on (1) fatty acid-modifying enzymes and (2) lignocellulose-degrading enzymes:

We have also identified and engineered a series of protein fusion partners for efficient extracellular protein secretion in bacteria. This generally applicable technology offers several advantages:

  • Simplifying downstream processing (DSP) and, therefore, saving cost;

  • Facilitating high-throughput screening in directed protein evolution;

  • Facilitating expression of toxic proteins;

  • Enabling simultaneous saccharification & fermentation (SSF);
