Article
The isolation, heterologous gene expression, and characteristics of a new β-glucanase from Bacillus pumilus is described. The bgl1 gene from the Bacillus pumilus Bg57 VKPM В-13195 strain, which consists of 729 nucleotides, encodes a secreted endo-β-l,3(4)-D-glucanase (EC 3.2.1.6) containing 214 amino acids and 28 residues of the putative signal pep...
Article
Endo-1,4-β-xylanases from Bacillus pumilus VKPM В-7975, Paenibacillus polymyxa VKPM В-3015, Thermomyces lanuginosus VKPM F-224, and Schizophyllum commune VKPM F-433, which are members of a family of 11 glycohydrolases, have been obtained in the expression system of Pichia pastoris. Technologically valuable characteristics of the recombinant hydrola...
Article
Phytases are widely used to improve the properties of mixed fodder. Due to its high specific activity, PhyА-Cf phytase from Citrobacter freundii is of special interest for agrobiotechnology. In order to decrease the thermal sensitivity of the enzyme during fodder granulation at 60–80°C, the thermal stability of phytase was enhanced by site-directed...
Article
In¹ order to increase the expression level of gene for recombinant phytase in Pichia pastoris, a synthetic sequence of the phyOp-mod gene, which encodes phytase from Obesumbacterium proteus, has been designed and optimized by its codon composition. The GC content was adjusted to 48.33%, and AT-rich segments were eliminated. The main characteristics...

Article
A DNA sequence from Kosakonia sacchari that according to automated computer analysis is believed to correspond to a gene for histidine acid phytase has been selected from the GenBank database. The sequence was optimized for codon composition, synthesized, cloned and expressed in Pichia pastoris. Main characteristics of the purified recombinant enzy...
Article
A Pichia pastoris yeast strain producing endo-l,4-β-xylanase from Paenibacillus brasilensis with an activity of 54,400 U/mL after 140 h of fermentation in a laboratory fermenter has been obtained. A number of approaches were used to increase the level of the xylanase production in this strain: optimization of the target gene codon composition, mult...
Article
Effect of overexpression of the HAC1 genes from Pichia pastoris and Saccharomyces cerevisiae on the production of heterologous enzymes, Escherichia coli phytase and Paenibacillus brasilensis xylanase, in P. pastoris cells has been studied. Codon composition of the phytase and xylanase encoding genes was optimized, and the genes were expressed in P....
Article
A method is proposed for the rapid identification of the taxa of five industrially valuable yeast groups: Pichia pastoris, Yarrowia lipolytica, Schizosaccharomyces pombe, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and Kluyveromyces lactis. The specific primers selected based on nucleotide sequences of genes encoding rRNA were used in PCR. The method was effective i...
Article
A stepwise screening of bacterial xylanase producers isolated from forest soil in Moscow oblast has been performed, and the taxa of the microorganisms have been identified based on an analysis of the 16S RNA gene sequences. An approach to the selection of the most active producers is suggested, and this selection has been carried out, resulting in...
Article
Comparative analysis of the efficiency of the expression of the Escherichia coli, Obessumbacterium proteus, and Citrobacter freundii phytase genes in Pichia pastoris methylotrophic yeast has been carried out. A simple model with a genetic construct based on the pPICά vector and the plate test with a modified diagnostic medium containing methanol (i...

Such technologically valuable characteristics...
Article
In order to increase the level of expression of recombinant phytases in the Pichia pastoris yeast, a synthetic sequence of the phyOp-mod gene that encodes phytase from Obesumbacterium proteus has been developed and optimized by codon composition. The GC content was adjusted to 48.33, and the AT-rich segments were eliminated. The main characteristic...
