Oleaginous microbes can convert substrates such as carbon dioxide, sugars, and organic acids to single-cell oils (SCOs). Among the oleaginous microorganisms, Lipomyces starkeyi is a particularly well-suited host given its impressive native abilities, including the capability to utilize a wide variety of carbon sources. In this work, the potential of L. starkeyi NBRC10381 to produce SCOs in a synthetically nitrogen-limited mineral medium (-NMM) was investigated by differing the inoculum size using glucose and/or xylose as a carbon source. Fermentation using glucose and xylose as mixed carbon sources generated the highest production of biomass at 40.8 g/L, and achieved a lipid content of 84.9% (w/w). When either glucose or xylose was used separately, the totals for achieved lipid content were 79.6% (w/w) and 85.1% (w/w), respectively. However, biomass production was higher for glucose than for xylose (30.3 vs. 28.7 g/L, respectively). This study describes the first simultaneous achievement of higher levels of cell mass and lipid production using glucose and/or xylose as the carbon sources in different inoculum sizes.

Composting was performed using a mixture of ovine manure and straw. Inoculum was extracted at five different phases of the composting process (18, 23, 28, 33 and 38 days after the start of the compost...
Much of our current knowledge of microbial growth is obtained from studies at a population level. Driven by the realization that processes which operate within a population might influence a populatio...
Softwood hemicellulose hydrolysates are a cheap source of sugars that can be used as a feedstock to produce polyhydroxybutyrates (PHB), which are biobased and compostable bacterial polyesters. To asse...
The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of utilizing different lignocellulosic hydrolysates with various hexose versus pentose (H:P) ratios to produce lactic acid (LA) from Bacillus c...
Manipueira is a carbohydrate-rich agro-industrial waste from cassava processing. It is considered well suitable for biotechnological processes, such as hydrogen and carboxylic acids production, due to...
Peripheral glucagon action increases hepatic glucose production. In rodents hypothalamic action of glucagon paradoxically suppresses glucose production. Intranasally administered peptides ...
The purpose of study is to examine whether raised blood glucose enhances lipid particle production independent of effects on gastric emptying and pancreatic/ gastrointestinal hormone produ...
In this study, the researchers hope to learn about SGLT2 inhibition on EGP (endogenous glucose production) and plasma glucose concentration in diabetic subjects. Researchers will examine d...
It is well known that the hormone insulin lowers blood glucose in part by acting directly on the liver and reducing hepatic glucose production. Animal studies have shown that the hormone i...
Recent studies show that many Type 1 diabetes patients have remaining endogenous insulin production, albeit at low levels. Finding means to increase this production would be of tremendous ...
Mapping of the full chromosome set of the nucleus of a cell. The chromosome characteristics of an individual or a cell line are usually presented as a systematized array of metaphase chromosomes from a photomicrograph of a single cell nucleus arranged in pairs in descending order of size and according to the position of the centromere.

Enumeration by direct count of viable, isolated bacterial, archaeal, or fungal CELLS or SPORES capable of growth on solid CULTURE MEDIA. Each colony (i.e., microbial colony-forming unit) represents the progeny of a single cell in the original inoculum. The method is used routinely by environmental microbiologists for quantifying organisms in AIR; FOOD; and WATER; by clinicians for measuring patients' microbial load; and in antimicrobial drug testing.
Maintenance of a constant blood glucose level by perfusion or infusion with glucose or insulin. It is used for the study of metabolic rates (e.g., in glucose, lipid, amino acid metabolism) at constant glucose concentration.
The regular and simultaneous occurrence in a single interbreeding population of two or more discontinuous genotypes. The concept includes differences in genotypes ranging in size from a single nucleotide site (POLYMORPHISM, SINGLE NUCLEOTIDE) to large nucleotide sequences visible at a chromosomal level.
