    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

    The effect of deacetylation on chitin nanocrystals for the production of chitin-PLA nanocomposites
    Boer, Kieke de; Colijn, Ivanna ; Schroen, C.G.P.H. - \ 2019
    The replacement of traditionally used fossil fuel based plastics with bioplastics would contribute to the transition to a more sustainable circular economy Unfortunately, bioplastics often do not meet requirements in terms of strength and barrier properties and are therefore unsuited to function as food packaging material In this research, we aim at improving properties of a promising bioplastic, polylactic acid ( by the incorporation of chitin nanocrystals. The major focus lays on the effect of deacetylation on the properties of the chitin nanocrystals During deacetylation, acetylgroups on the chitin nanocrystals are replaced by amino groups

    The genus Phytophthora belongs to the oomycetes in the eukaryotic stramenopile lineage and is comprised of over 65 species that are all destructive plant pathogens on a wide range of dicotyledons. Phytophthora produces elicitins (ELIs), a group of extracellular elicitor proteins that cause a hypersensitive response in tobacco. Database mining revealed several new classes of elicitin-like (ELL) sequences with diverse elicitin domains in Phytophthora infestans, Phytophthora sojae, Phytophthora brassicae, and Phytophthora ramorum. ELIs and ELLs were shown to be unique to Phytophthora and Pythium species. They are ubiquitous among Phytophthora species and belong to one of the most highly conserved and complex protein families in the Phytophthora genus. Phylogeny construction with elicitin domains derived from 156 ELIs and ELLs showed that most of the diversified family members existed prior to divergence of Phytophthora species from a common ancestor. Analysis to discriminate diversifying and purifying selection showed that all 17 ELI and ELL clades are under purifying selection. Within highly similar ELI groups there was no evidence for positively selected amino acids suggesting that purifying selection contributes to the continued existence of this diverse protein family. Characteristic cysteine spacing patterns were found for each phylogenetic clade. Except for the canonical clade ELI-1, ELIs and ELLs possess C-terminal domains of variable length, many of which have a high threonine, serine, or proline content suggesting an association with the cell wall. In addition, some ELIs and ELLs have a predicted glycosylphosphatidylinositol site suggesting anchoring of the C-terminal domain to the cell membrane. The eli and ell genes belonging to different clades are clustered in the genomes. Overall, eli and ell genes are expressed at different levels and in different life cycle stages but those sharing the same phylogenetic clade appear to have similar expression patterns
