Efficient production of gamma ‐aminobutyric acid by engineered Saccharomyces cerevisiae with glutamate decarboxylases from Streptomyces
This study was aimed to establish an efficient food‐grade production process of GABA by engineeringSaccharomyces cerevisiae that is generally recognized as safe (GRAS). GABA can be produced by catalytic decarboxylation of L ‐glutamate (L‐Glu) by glutamate decarboxylase (GAD, EC4.1.1.15). Two GADs, SsGAD fromStreptomyces sp. MJ654 ‐NF4 and ScGAD fromStreptomyces chromofuscus ATCC 49982, were heterologously expressed inS. cerevisiae BJ5464. The engineeredyeast strians were used as whole ‐cell biocatalysts for GABA production.S. cerevisiae BJ5464/SsGAD exhibited significantly higher efficient catalytic activity than...

Kinetic model for effects of simulated flue gas onto growth profiles of Chlorella sp. AE10 and Chlorella sp. Cv
In this study, the effects of different concentrations of the simulated flue gas onto algal growth and photosynthetic activity were evaluated for bothChlorella sp. AE10 andChlorella sp. Cv. The growth profiles were correlated by a simple kinetic model. It was indicated that the simulated flue gas led to low pH and the photosynthetic activity was partially destroyed.Chlorella sp. Cv can tolerate full simulated flue gas, 10% CO2 + 200 ppm NOx + 100 ppm SOx. The pH in medium maintained at 6 and the photosynthetic activity was more than 0.6 at the first 6 days. If the concentration of NOx was more...

Microalgal flocculation: Global research progress and prospects for algal biorefinery
AbstractMicroalgal research has made significant progress due to versatile and high ‐value industrial applications of microalgal biomass or its derivatives. However, to explore their full potential and to achieve commercial robustness, microalgal biorefinery needs cost‐effective technologies to produce, harvest, and process the microalgal biomass on large scale as higher produc tion and harvesting cost is one of the key hindrances in the commercialization of algae‐based products. Among several other algal biomass harvesting technologies, self‐flocculation seems to be an attractive, low‐cost, and eco‐friendly ha...

Protective effect of glycyrrhizic acid on cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injury via inhibiting HMGB1 ‐mediated TLR4/NF‐κB pathway
In this study, our results showed that GA could dramatically decrease cerebral edema, reduce the neurological deficits, and smaller brain infarct volume was found in the GA treatment group. In serum and brain tissue, GA also increased superoxide dismutase activity. In addition, in serum and brain tissue, GA also dramatically inhibited the secretion of inflammatory cytokines, including interleukin ‐1β (IL‐1β), IL‐6, and tumor necrosis factor‐α. Moreover, GA inhibited the expressions of high‐mobility group protein box‐1 (HMGB1)‐mediated TLR4/NF‐κB pathway. Our data determined that GA may...

Macromolecular crowding effects on transcription and translation are regulated by free magnesium ion
In this study, free Mg2+ was found to be a key factor that can regulate the macromolecular crowding effect onin vitro transcription,in vitro translation and coupled transcript/translation. Addition of crowding agents (20% of Ficoll ‐70 or Ficoll‐400) enhancedin vitro transcription at an index of free Mg2+ concentration (IFMC) below 2  mM, but inhibited the transcription when the IFMC was higher than 2 mM. Similarly, Ficoll‐400 enhancedin vitro translation and coupled transcription/translation at a lower IFMC (0.1  mM – 2 mM) and inhibited the reactions at higher IFMC (>2  m...

Calcium ion induced thermodynamic stability, bisubstrate specificity, and differential organic solvent tolerance of a predominantly β‐sheet serine protease from Bacillus aquimaris VITP4
AbstractThe present study was aimed to get insights on the role of calcium ions on the thermodynamic stability, substrate specificity, and organic solvent compatibility of the extracellular protease produced byBacillus aquimaris VITP4. Presence of Ca2+enhanced the activity of the enzyme in the temperature range of 30 –60 °C and increased the half‐life from 164 to 234 Min. Circular dichroism experiments indicated that the temperature of half‐denaturation (Tm) of the protease increased from 76 to 86  °C. As judged by fluorescence emission profiles, the overall fold of the enzyme around the tr...
