esterases for the hydrolysis of the plant cell wall.
These cross-links involve oxidative coupling of polysaccharides and glycoproteins by phenollic groups of feruloyl
or p-coumaroyl or isodityrosine bridges, and of the monolignols (Cassab & Varner 1988).
The biocatalysts will be based on feruloyl
acid esterases ("FAE") and glucuronyl esterases ("GE") which are expected to be used in the production of phenolic fatty- and sugar- esters with antioxidant activity for the cosmetic industry.
