Dr. Julio Polaina explains in the newspaper "El Pais" some issues regarding the lactose intolerance and their enzymatic implications



Members of the GLICOENZ consortium solved the 3D structure of the invertase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, an essential enzyme for sugar metabolism with an historical relevance (Sainz-Polo et al., Journal of Biological Chemistry 288, 9755-9766, 2013).


































In collaboration with two universities, GLICOENZ members participated in the development of a method for obtaining fermentable sugars (further transformed to bioethanol) from carrot discards using glycosidic enzymes (N.R. Aimaretti et al., Bioresource Technology 123, 727-732, 2012).
