Publication date: Available online 17 November 2018Source: Biocatalysis and Agricultural BiotechnologyAuthor(s): Mohamed S. Hasanin, Osama M. Darwesh, Ibrahim A. Matter, Houssni El-SaiedAbstractEnvironmental applications of selective lignin-degrading fungi and enzymes are of great interest as alternate technologies for paper industry (biopulping), biofuels, organic fertilizers, animal feeds. For this reason, the current study aimed to isolate selective delignifying fungi to convert the abundant lignocellulosic agricultural wastes into value-added products. From five lignocellulolytic fungi isolated from agricultural soil r...

Publication date: Available online 17 November 2018Source: CarbonAuthor(s): Hang Ngoc Nguyen, Clemencia Chaves-Lopez, Rodrigo Cardoso Oliveira, Antonello Paparella, Debora F. RodriguesAbstractA combination of approaches, including volatile organic compound (VOC) metabolomics, enzymatic activity and morphological investigations, are employed to provide insights on the toxic interactions among carbon-based nanomaterials and fungi. The model fungi investigated are Aspergillus niger and Aspergillus flavus. Their exposure to graphene (G) and graphene oxide (GO) presents 62% reduction in biomass and abnormal hyphae aspect. The s...

This study aimed to eliminate the tyrosine crystals in broad bean paste through decreasing the activities of proteolytic enzymes produced byAspergillus oryzae and process optimization. Broad bean pastes containing no more than 6.16  mg/g dry material tyrosine showed low possibility to form tyrosine crystals. Using tyrosine as substrate, theA. oryzae 3.042 was adaptively evolved and the tyrosine content in the broad bean paste fermented by the evolvedA. oryzae was reduced from 6.49  mg/g dry material to 6.14 mg/g dry material (p

ConclusionsThe current study indicates that a history of OSAS/CSAS, myocardial infarction and BMI > 30 might be related to ICU admission in influenza patients. Second, ICU patients develop more pulmonary co-infections. Last, (pre-existent) renal failure and diabetes mellitus are more often observed in non-survivors.

Publication date: Available online 16 November 2018Source: Food ControlAuthor(s): Xianbin Cheng, Andrea Vella, Matthew J. StasiewiczAbstractAflatoxin contamination in corn poses threats to consumer food safety and grower economic stability. Current industrial methods for aflatoxin management in corn focus on the bulk aflatoxin level, which can lead to either acceptance of lots with contaminated corn kernels (consumer food safety risk) or rejection of lots with mostly harmless corn kernels (grower economic loss). This dilemma may be resolved by utilizing spectroscopy to classify single corn kernels. Hence, our research aims...

Publication date: Available online 16 November 2018Source: Fungal BiologyAuthor(s): Shinobu Oda, Ryosuke KidoAbstractA simple and novel procedure for the acceleration of fungal spore production was developed. A net of hydrophobic polymer such as polypropylene (PP) and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) was embedded in a nutrient agar plate, and effect of the polymer net on spore production by 6 fungal strains, such as Aspergillus terreus, Penicillium multicolor, and Trichoderma virens were estimated. The effect of hydrophobic polymer net was insufficient in a liquid-surface immobilization (LSI) system with fungal cells immobil...

Publication date: Available online 16 November 2018Source: Colloids and Surfaces A: Physicochemical and Engineering AspectsAuthor(s): Hanlin Ding, Xuegang Luo, Xiaonuo Zhang, Hao YangAbstractA novel alginate-immobilized Aspergillus niger microsphere (AAM) biosorbent was prepared and used for Th(IV) removal. Biosorption experiments indicated that the AAMs with an abundance of surface functional groups exhibited rapid complexation with Th(IV) and a superior biosorption performance (303.95 mg·g-1) at pH 6.0 and 40 °C. Multiple methods of characterizing the biosorbent revealed the successful immobilization of gap st...
