Patent
Danisco | Date: 2017-07-12

The present invention provides protease variants, compositions comprising protease variants, and methods of using such protease variants and compositions.


The present compositions and methods relate to a beta-mannanase from Streptococcus gallolyticus, polynucleotides encoding the beta-mannanase, and methods of make and/or use thereof. Formulations containing the beta-mannanase are suitable for use in hydrolyzing lignocellulosic biomass substrates, especially those comprising a measurable level of galactoglucomannan (GGM) and/or glucomannan (GM).


The present compositions and methods relate to a beta-mannanase from Paenibacillus pabuli, polynucleotides encoding the beta-mannanase, and methods of make and/or use thereof. Formulations containing the beta-mannanase are suitable for use in hydrolyzing lignocellulosic biomass substrates, especially those comprising a measurable level of galactoglucomannan (GGM) and/or glucomannan (GM).


The present invention provides methods for protein engineering. Specifically, the invention provides methods utilizing site evaluation libraries to design libraries that optimize two or more properties of a protein. The present invention also provides variant subtilisins suitable for various uses.


Patent
Danisco | Date: 2017-01-18

Provided herein are variants of Buttiauxella sp. phytases that may be used in industrial applications including methods for starch liquefaction, alcohol fermentations and for enhancing phosphate digestion in foods and animal fees.


The present invention provides a method for producing an alcohol comprising: (a) admixing a tripeptidyl peptidase, predominantly having exopeptidase activity, with a feedstock or a fraction thereof before, during or after fermentation of said feedstock or a fraction thereof; and (b) recovering an alcohol. Also provided are uses of a tripeptidyl peptidase and by-products of alcohol production obtainable by the method of the invention.


Patent
Danisco | Date: 2017-07-26

The invention provides small enzyme-containing granules having an inorganic salt core and an enzyme-containing layer coated over the core, and methods for producing such granules. The majority of the enzyme granules are less than 300 m in diameter. The granules are suitable for incorporation into compositions such as cleaning, textile processing, and animal feed compositions.


Patent
Danisco | Date: 2017-01-25

The present disclosure relates to serine proteases cloned from Bacillus spp., and variants thereof. Compositions containing the serine proteases are suitable for use in cleaning fabrics and hard surfaces, as well as in a variety of industrial applications.


Patent
Danisco | Date: 2017-01-04

Aspects of the present compositions and methods relate to novel metalloproteases, polynucleotides encoding the novel metalloproteases, and compositions and methods for use thereof.


Aspects of the present disclosure are drawn to methods of improving the expression of secreted cuproenzymes from host cells by manipulating the expression level of one or more proteins involved in copper transport in the host cell, e.g., membrane-bound copper transporting ATPases and soluble copper transporters. The present disclosure also provides compositions containing such improved host cells as well as products derived from the improved host cells that contain one or more cuproenzymes of interest.
