CD Biosynsis' powerful and innovative technology in synthetic biology provides an excellent platform for the production of inulinases and the engineering of microorganisms with more desirable properties. We are committed to helping our customers advance the large-scale synthesis of inulinase in a more efficient and cost-effective manner to meet the growing demand for inulinase in the medical and food industries.

Advantages of Synthetic Biology-Driven Inulinase Production

Inulinase is an inulin catalyzing enzyme belonging to the glycoside hydrolases (GH) family 32, which specifically acts on β-2, 1 linkage of inulin to produce fructose or fructooligosaccharides. Inulinase is produced from a variety of sources, such as animals, plants, and a variety of microorganisms including bacteria, fungi, and yeasts. However, inulinase from animal and plant sources cannot be commercially exploited because of its low yield. Inulinases of microbial origin are ideal for inulinase production due to their ease of handling, culture, and genetic manipulation. However, there are still many challenges in developing a commercial process for the production of inulinase from microorganisms. The most important problems include low yield of bacterial inulinase, poor functional and storage stability, and difficulty in recovery from the reaction mixture. Recent breakthroughs in synthetic biology tools based on nanoparticle immobilization technology have created possibilities for the development of high-quality and highly stable inulinase, which will greatly enhance the production yield and functional properties of inulinase.
