New enzyme provide potentials for Ulva biorefinery

News: Oct 30, 2018

Ulvan is an interesting biomacromolecule in green algae of the Ulva family. Its depolymerisation to high-value oligosaccharides or fermentable monosaccharides would bring value to green tide biomass which is otherwise left to decompose. However, only a few ulvan depolymerising enzymes are studied to date. Here, we identified, purified, and biochemically characterised a full-length ulvan lyase from the bacteria Formosa agariphila. Our study points towards the potential ulvan depolymerisation applications in Ulva biorefinery.
