  • Cellulases from extremely thermophilic bacteria

    Sharrock, Keith R.; Sissons, Christopher H.; Daniel, Roy M.; Morgan, Hugh W. (New Zealand Institute of Chemistry, 1983)
    Cellulose is the most abundant biopolymer on earth, and is the major component of urban waste. Thus cellulose must be seen as a very significant renewable source of chemical foodstocks when fossil fuels become restricted.
  • Isolation of cellulolytic anaerobic extreme thermophiles from New Zealand thermal sites

    Sissons, Christopher H.; Sharrock, Keith R.; Daniel, Roy M.; Morgan, Hugh W. (American Society for Microbiology, 1987)
    Avicel enrichment cultures from 47 thermal-pool sites in the New Zealand Rotorua-Taupo region were screened for growth and carboxymethyl cellulase activity at 75°C. Eight anaerobic cellulolytic cultures were obtained. The ...

  • Comparative characterisation of esterases and lipases for biosensors

    Lind, Penelope A. (The University of Waikato, 2002)
    Twenty four carboxylesterases and lipases from various microbial sources were compared with commercial pig liver esterase in order to determine which would be most appropriate for use in a biosensor application and in the ...
