Patent
Novozymes AS | Date: 2017-03-15

The present invention relates to novel subtilase variants exhibiting increased stability and preferably on par or improved wash performance. The variants of the invention are suitable for use in e.g. cleaning or detergent compositions, such as laundry detergent compositions and dish wash compositions, including automatic dish wash compositions. The present invention also relates to isolated DNA sequences encoding the variants, expression vectors, host cells, and methods for producing and using the variants of the invention.


Patent
Novozymes AS | Date: 2017-02-15

The present invention concerns a detergent and a pharmaceutical composition comprising a deoxyribonuclease (DNase), wherein the DNase is obtained from a fungal source. It further concerns a laundering method and the use of DNase. The present invention further relates to polypeptides having DNase activity, as well as methods of producing the polypeptides.


Patent
Novozymes AS and Microbiogen Pty Ltd | Date: 2017-02-08

The present invention relates to processes for producing ethanol from starch-containing material by liquefying the starch-containing material at a temperature above the initial gelatinization temperature using an alpha-amylase; saccharifying using a glucoamylase and fermenting using a Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strain deposited under Accession No. V14/004037 at National Measurement Institute, Victoria, Australia) or a fermenting organism strain having properties that are about the same as that of the deposited Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain or a derivative of Saccharomyces strain V14/004037 having the defining characteristics of strain V14/004037. The invention also relates to a Saccharomyces yeast strain deposited under the Budapest Treaty and having NMI accession no. V14/004037 or a derivative of strain V14/004037 which exhibits one or more defining characteristics of strain V14/004037. The invention also relates to a process of recovering/extracting oil from an ethanol process of the invention using a Saccharomyces strain of the invention and compositions comprising a Saccharomyces yeast strain of the invention and naturally occurring and/or non- naturally occurring components.

The present invention concerns a detergent and a pharmaceutical composition comprising a deoxyribonuclease (DNase), wherein the DNase is obtained from a fungal source. It further concerns a laundering method and the use of DNase. The present invention further relates to polypeptides having DNase activity, nucleotides encoding the polypeptide, as well as methods of producing the polypeptides.


Provided are isolated polypeptides with lipase activity. Also provided are polynucleotides encoding the polypeptides; nucleic acid constructs, vectors, and host cells comprising the polynucleotides; compositions comprising the polynucleotides and methods of using the polypeptides or the compositions.


The present invention relates to formulations comprising one or more agriculturally beneficial agents formulated with polymeric xyloglucan as a carrier and their use.


The present invention relates to methods for converting plant cell wall polysaccharides into one or more products, comprising: treating the plant cell wall polysaccharides with an effective amount of a spent whole fermentation broth of a recombinant microorganism, wherein the recombinant microorganism expresses one or more heterologous genes encoding enzymes which degrade or convert the plant cell wall polysaccharides into the one or more products. The present invention also relates to methods for producing an organic substance, comprising: (a) saccharifying plant cell wall polysaccharides with an effective amount of a spent whole fermentation broth of a recombinant microorganism, wherein the recombinant microorganism expresses one or more heterologous genes encoding enzymes which degrade or convert the plant cell wall polysaccharides into saccharified material; (b) fermenting the saccharified material of step (a) with one or more fermenting microoganisms; and (c) recovering the organic substance from the fermentation.
