Research Topic

ü   Enzymomics
Enzymoomics is the discipline studing on the enzymome, the set of enzymes. The profiles of those enzymes activities in different parameters, such as pH, temperature and so on, can be monitored and identified by. two-dimensional electrophoresis (2DE), zymography and mass spectrometry. By the technique, a bunch of chitinases were observed. Some unique chitinases were identified, expressed and patented. The discipline also applied on diseases involving enzymes activities, 


ü   Chitinasome
Chitin is the polymers composed with the monomer, N-acetyl glucosamine. It is an abundant polysaccharides and distributed in various organisms, such as crustaceans, fugi, and insects. Microbes degrade chitin with multiple chitinolyc enzymes for carbon and nitrogen sources. Recently, chitinasome, a protein complex producing N-acetyl glucosamine by chitin cleavage, was identified. The protein and bioseparation techniques are applied for elucidation on the subunits and mechanism of chitinasome.


ü   Intellectual property and biosafety
