Max Rubner Conference 2014: Enzymes in Food Processing

28.05.2014

The Max Rubner-Conference 2014 will address the topic "Enzymes in Food Processing “.

The conference aims to provide an updated overview on the applications of enzymes in the food sector, and of progresses made in respect to exploit more efficient biocatalysts, through screening, structural modification, and immobilization of enzymes.

The Max Rubner Conference will take place from October 08-10, 2014 at the Max Rubner-Institut in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Enzymes are useful biotechnological processing tools whose action can be controlled in the food matrix to produce higher quality food products. They have been used in the food industry for many years.

These include enzymes used in baking, beverages and brewing, dairy, dietary supplements, as well as fats and oils. Even if the integration of enzymes in food and feed processes is a well-established approach, evidence clearly shows that dedicated research efforts are consistently being made as to make this application of biological agents more effective and/or diversified.

In recent years, significant advances in enzyme engineering and biocatalyst design have fastened the pace of such developments.

The conference aims to provide an updated overview on the applications of enzymes in the food sector, and of progresses made in respect to exploit more efficient biocatalysts, through screening, structural modification, and immobilization of enzymes.

Targeted improvements aim at enzymes with enhanced thermal and operational stability, improved specific activity, modification of pH-activity profiles, and increased product specificity, among others. This has been mostly achieved through protein engineering and enzyme immobilization, along with improvements in screening.

The latter has been considerably improved due to the implementation of high-throughput techniques, and due to developments in protein expression and microbial cell culture. Expanding screening to relatively unexplored environments has also contributed to the identification and development of more efficient biocatalysts. Technological aspects are considered, but legal and health aspects are also addressed.

Im Focus: Superconductivity: footballs with no resistance

Indications of light-induced lossless electricity transmission in fullerenes contribute to the search for superconducting materials for practical applications.

Superconductors have long been confined to niche applications, due to the fact that the highest temperature at which even the best of these materials becomes...

Im Focus: Wbp2 is a novel deafness gene

Researchers at King’s College London and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in the United Kingdom have for the first time demonstrated a direct link between the Wbp2 gene and progressive hearing loss. The scientists report that the loss of Wbp2 expression leads to progressive high-frequency hearing loss in mouse as well as in two clinical cases of children with deafness with no other obvious features. The results are published in EMBO Molecular Medicine.

The scientists have shown that hearing impairment is linked to hormonal signalling rather than to hair cell degeneration. Wbp2 is known as a transcriptional...

Im Focus: From allergens to anodes: Pollen derived battery electrodes

Pollens, the bane of allergy sufferers, could represent a boon for battery makers: Recent research has suggested their potential use as anodes in lithium-ion batteries.

"Our findings have demonstrated that renewable pollens could produce carbon architectures for anode applications in energy storage devices," said Vilas Pol, an...
