Marine enzymes for biocatalysis: Sources, biocatalytic by Antonio Trincone

By Antonio Trincone

Marine bioprospecting is a hugely topical topic, yet, as but, the marine environment is a comparatively unexplored resource of common bioactive ingredients with strength healing job. This booklet addresses using marine enzymes in biocatalysis.

the writer, a number one sciencist inside of educational and business fields, at first examines the character and point of curiosity in marine organic range, and descriptions the basics of biocatalysis. He info assets of marine enzymes and analyzes examples from either chemical and stereochemical viewpoints of catalysis, together with microbial enzymes and animal or plant assets earlier than exploring the long run power of marine bioprospecting in biocatalysis.

-Offers a molecular view which totally explains the enzymatic facets of reactions, fairly relating to biocatalytic features and outlines of bioprocesses
-Describes how to support keep away from harmful, large-scale collections of marine biomass for enzyme production

After a post-doctoral contract with Dr Miroslaw Cygler at the Biotechnology Research Institute in Montreal (Canada, 2001–2002), he was recruited in 2003 as a CNRS permanent scientist at the Station Biologique de Roscoff (Brittany, France). With Dr Mirjam Czjzek, he participated in the development of the first group of protein crystallography in Brittany (Marine Glycobiology Group, UMR 7139 CNRS – UPMC). Since 2011, he has been promoted CNRS Research Director and his current research focus is to combine genomic approaches with structural methods to discover and characterize new enzymes from marine organisms involved in the metabolism of algal polysaccharides.

Since 2011, he has been promoted CNRS Research Director and his current research focus is to combine genomic approaches with structural methods to discover and characterize new enzymes from marine organisms involved in the metabolism of algal polysaccharides. With Dr Tristan Barbeyron, he notably coordinated the sequencing and annotation of the complete genome of Zobellia galactanivorans, a model marine bacterium for the bioconversion of algal polysaccharides.

He is currently Researcher at the Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology of the University of Coimbra and coordinates the Molecular Mycobacteriology research unit to dissect the intricacy of PMPSs biogenesis, their functions in mycobacterial physiology and validation of new targets for structure-based drug design.
