Polyol dehydrogenases (PDHs) play a pivotal role in the biotransformation between rare sugar and alcohol. Among these PDHs, mannitol 2-dehydrogenase (MDH, EC 220.127.116.11), galactitol 2-dehydrogenase (GDH, EC 18.104.22.168), ribitol 2-dehydrogenase (RDH, EC 22.214.171.124), xylitol 4-dehydrogenase (XDH, EC 126.96.36.199), and arabitol...

We present electronic structure calculations on the isomerization and epimerization of xylose to xylulose and lyxose, respectively, by a zeolite Sn-BEA model at the MP2 and B3LYP theory levels. Benchmarking calculations at the CCSD(T) theory level are also presented. We...

Ethanolic fermentation of lignocellulose raw materials requires industrial xylose-fermenting strains capable of complete and efficient D-xylose consumption. A central question in xylose fermentation by Saccharomyces cerevisiae engineered for xylose fermentation is to improve the xylose uptake. In the current study...

Dicarbonyl/L-xylulose reductase (DCXR) converts l-xylulose into xylitol, and reduces various α-dicarbonyl compounds, thus performing a dual role in carbohydrate metabolism and detoxification. In this study, we identified DHS-21 as the only DCXR ortholog in Caenorhabditis elegans. The dhs-21 gene is...
