Enzyme and Host Cell Engineering

A. Glieder's current research interests are focused on two main topics: (i) the engineering of proteins towards improved fitness for industrial or therapeutic application, and (ii) using systems biology and metabolic engineering to improve the physiology of expression strains to enhance production of proteins as well as primary and secondary metabolites. In addition to the application-oriented engineering of proteins, evolutionary engineering techniques are attractive for clarifying the structure-function relationship of enzymes and their cellular functions.

Laboratory know-how and infrastructure

Protein engineering methods are used routinely in A. Glieder's laboratory for rational design as well as for random generation of large libraries of individual variants of industrial enzymes from prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Enzyme assays in a high throughput format are well established for many different enzyme families allowing qualitative analysis on a colony level as well as paralleled kinetic analysis of large numbers of enzyme variants. High throughput LC-MS based analytics was established for screenings using unmodified target substrates instead of surrogate substrates. Special know how and proprietary tools for efficient protein expression and engineering employing Pichia pastoris were developed.
