Online Inquiry

CD Biosynsis provides customized synthetic biology solutions to help our customers overcome the challenges of traditional xylanase production to meet the growing demand for xylanases in a variety of fields including the paper industry, bakery industry, and pharmaceutical industry. We are committed to breaking the limitations faced by xylanases in large-scale production and industrial applications, developing super xylanases that can meet the properties required for extreme industrial production, and promoting the widespread use of xylanases in biotechnology and industrial production.

Advantages of Synthetic Biology-Driven Xylanases Production

Xylan is the second most abundant hemicellulosic polysaccharide in nature, accounting for about one-third of the renewable organic carbon source on earth. Xylanases are hydrolases that break down xylans with the help of other glycosidases and are produced by many microorganisms, including filamentous fungi, bacteria, yeasts and actinomycetes. Although fungal xylanases have the advantage of high activity, they face many limitations in large-scale production and industrial applications, which makes bacterial xylanases a strong contender in industry today. However, most currently available bacterial xylanases satisfy only a fraction of the properties required for practical industrial applications, which leaves industrial processes largely dependent on expensive and dangerous chemical processes. Recent advances in synthetic biology based on the availability of information on whole genome sequences and metabolic pathways have paved the way for the development of engineered xylanase producing microorganisms. It has made possible the design of super xylanases capable of meeting the required properties for extreme industrial production.

Xylanases Improvement Strategies Based on Synthetic Biology

  • Low production efficiency and yield
    We can help develop cell-free synthetic biology methods to enhance the expression of xylanases for improved productivity and yield.
  • Low functionality
    We can modify xylanases can use synthetic biology-based genetic tools and metabolic engineering strategies to create fully functional xylanases for biotechnological and industrial applications.
  • Low stability
    We can use synthetic biology techniques to engineer xylanases through mutagenesis and cloning to improve its stability.
