Publication date: 15 September 2018 Source:Biochemical Engineering Journal, Volume 137 Author(s): Qian Li, Abdullah Al Loman, Nicholas V. Callow, S.M. Mahfuzul Islam, Lu-Kwang Ju Aspergillus foetidus was found to have different optimal pH conditions for producing different carbohydrases including cellulase, xylanase, pectinase, α-galactosidase, polygalacturonase, and invertase. Designs to trigger these conditions sequentially using controlled pH gradients were evaluated for directing the culture through multiple production stages optimal for different enzymes. For production of enzyme mixtures with particularly high...

Blandino In an open field trial on two agricultural soils in NW Italy, the impact of two seed-applied biostimulants on the rhizosphere bacterial community of young maize plants was evaluated. The 16S rDNA profiling was carried out on control and treated plant rhizosphere samples collected at the 4-leaf stage and on bulk soil. In both soils, the rhizospheres were significantly enriched in Proteobacteria, Actinobacteria, and Bacteriodetes, while the abundances of Acidobacteria, Cloroflexi and Gemmatimonadetes decreased compared with bulk soil. Among the culturable bacteria genera that showed an increase by both biostimu...

In this study, we used the fungus Aspergillus orayzae for the fermentation process. The aqueous extract of fermented Lupin (AEFL) possesses the ability to reduce selenium ion in the presence of gamma rays evidenced by the color changes to red. Elemental composition, surface morphology, size determenation, and identity of selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs) were verified by UV–Vis., TEM, DLS, XRD, EDX, SEM and FT-IR. Antimicrobial activity of SeNPs was tested towards multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria, and some pathogenic fungi. TEM with DLS analysis confirmed the formation of sphere isotropic, poly-dispersed SeNPs with av...

Publication date: Available online 12 June 2018 Source:Journal of Bioscience and Bioengineering Author(s): Hui-Suan Ng, Grace Yin Tze Tan, Ka-Heng Lee, Wolfgang Zimmermann, Hip Seng Yim, John Chi-Wei Lan The α- and γ-mangostins from Garcinia mangostana pericarps (GMP) exhibit antioxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor properties. The extraction yields α- and γ-mangostins are often limited by the presence of the GMP cell walls. Therefore, the extraction and recovery of mangostins from GMP with an Aspergillus niger cellulase-assisted aqueous micellar biphasic system (CA-AMBS) was d...
