JUPITER, Fla., November 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dyadic International, Inc. (OTC Pink: DYAI), a global biotechnology company focused on the discovery, development, manufacture and sale of enzymes and other proteins for the bioenergy, bio-based chemical, biopharmaceutical and industrial enzyme industries, announced today that it has been issued U.S. Patent No. 8,551,751 B2 entitled, "BX11 Enzymes Having Xylosidase Activity" by the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO").
The invention relates to methods of developing and producing novel enzymes, more specifically for the development of a variety of fungal enzymes. Also described in the patent is the encoding of nucleic acid molecules for such enzymes, compositions, recombinant, and genetically modified host cells, and methods of use.
In addition, the patent also addresses methods to convert lignocellulosic biomass into fermentable sugars with enzymes that degrade the lignocellulosic material and novel combinations of enzymes, including those that provide a synergistic release of sugars from plant biomass. Large amounts of carbohydrates in plant biomass provide a plentiful source of potential energy in the form of sugars that can be utilized to produce biofuels such as Cellulosic Ethanol and a variety of bio-based chemicals. Additionally, the patent addresses methods to use the novel enzymes and compositions of such enzymes in a variety of other processes, including washing of clothing, detergent processes, biorefining, deinking and biobleaching of paper and pulp, and treatment of waste streams.
