The assembly results change in the application of optimal pH and temperature hydrolysis to convert starch to sugar. Bead arrangement in three microgel supports: the internal support phase (IP), the external support phase (EP), and the internal and external support phase (UP). The best results were obtained using I...

Publication date: Available online 19 April 2019Source: Soil Biology and BiochemistryAuthor(s): Andreas Richter, Toni Kern, Sebastian Wolf, Ulrich Struck, Liliane RuessAbstractSoil organisms constitute multitrophic food webs, which are important determinants for nutrient and carbon flow through terrestrial systems. However, these complex interactions are not well understood, particular in the most cryptic compartment – the link between microorganisms and microfauna. The present study investigates binary trophic links between microbial prey and nematodes in a controlled semi-natural soil environment. A microcosm syste...

Authors: Heo I, Hong K, Yang H, Lee HB, Choi YJ, Hong SB Abstract In order to elucidate the fungal diversity and community structure in freshwater environments, numerous fungal strains were isolated from freshwater, submerged soils, twigs, dead insects, etc. Among them, the present study has focused specifically on Aspergillus, Penicillium, and Talaromyces species, which produce diverse useful metabolites in general. Twelve strains of Aspergillus isolated were identified as A. japonicus (n = 5), A. tubingensis (3), A. niger (2), and A. flavus (2), 10 strains of which belong to Aspergillus section Nigr...

Publication date: Available online 17 April 2019Source: LWTAuthor(s): Yue Tan, Renfeng Zhang, Guangjing Chen, Shasha Wang, Changfeng Li, Yao Xu, Jianquan KanAbstractNaturally fermented douchi always yields large amounts of biogenic amines (BAs). To improve the safety and quality of douchi and shorten its fermentation cycle, investigations were carried out using six selected microbial strains, including Aspergillus oryzae 2339 (Shanghai brewing 3.042), A. oryzae 41380, A. oryzae 40188, Mucor racemosus, Actinomucor elegans, and M. wutungqiao for douchi rapid fermentation. Results showed that the water content, pH, free amino...

Sterilized rice artificially inoculated with three Aspergillus strains were subjected to GC-MS and E-nose analyses. Principle Component Analysis (PCA), Partial Least Squares Regression (PLSR), Back-propagation neural network (BPNN), Support Vector Machine (SVM) and Learning Vector Quantization (LVQ) were employed for qualitative classification and quantitative regression. GC-MS analysis ...

Conclusions MDSC are major players in the immunosuppressive scenario in cancer, thanks to their phenotype heterogeneity and critical interaction with several innate immune cells, thus representing a crucial target in oncology. Here we reviewed the interactions of MDSCs with NK cells. The contribution of key cytokines, chemokines and mediators active in this process have been discussed. We also described the contribution of MDSC on angiogenesis directly or indirectly through interactions with NK and immunosuppressive activities. A parallel of the cancer associated to the decidual counterpart of these cells is discussed, a...

In this study, we conducted an in-depth analysis of the FluG sequence, which revealed a single polypeptide containing a putative N-terminal amidohydrolase region linked to a putative C-terminal γ-glutamyl ligase region. Each region corresponded, separately and completely, to respective single function bacterial enzymes. Separate expression of these regions confirmed that the C-terminal region was essential for asexual development. The N-terminal region alone did not support conidial development, but contributed to increased conidial production under high nutrient availability. Point mutations directed at respective k...

Conclusions In conclusion, articles in this Research Topic made a very significant contribution to our understanding of the role played by environmental factors, dysbiotic conditions, and infections in triggering diseases. Since this is a rapidly expanding area of research, many other factors contributing to the onset of these diseases are not covered here. We are confident, however, that further studies will expand the list as well as bring a better understanding of mechanisms involved in the onset of autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases. Author Contributions All authors listed have made a substantial, direct and i...
