|Title:||Production of Heterologous Microbial Lipases by Yeasts|
|Abstract:||Lipases (triacylglycerol lipase, EC 188.8.131.52) catalyse the hydrolysis of triglycerides to di-glycerides, monoglycerides, glycerol and fatty acids. In<b> </b>non-aqueous media, these enzymes also catalyse esterification, interesteriflcation and transesterification. This versatility makes the lipases potential biocatalysts in many industrial applications. This review describes the recent advances in the use of yeasts as expression systems to produce high levels of recombinant microbial lipases. Some expression systems such as <i>Saccharomyces cerevisiae </i>and <i>Pichia pastoris </i>are reviewed and compared. Also, cell-surface display systems as novel methods to construct whole cell biocatalysts are highlighted.|
