As a stable microbial polysaccharide, scleroglucan has extensive application in the food, medicine, and cosmetics industries. However, its large-scale industrial application is limited by its high production cost, low yield, long production time, etc. This study aims to enhance scleroglucan production by Sclerotium rolfsii WSH-G01. Based on the analysis of batch fermentation kinetics parameters, a pH-shift strategy was adopted. Through systematic kinetics analysis, a 32.4 g/L scleroglucan was accomplished. The kinetic model of the pH-shift batch fermentation process was established using a logistic equation, Luedeking-Piret equation, and a Luedeking-Piret-like equation. As decreased glucose concentration could cause decreased scleroglucan synthesis rates during the batch fermentation process, 30 g/L glucose was fed in the later phase of fermentation. As a result, scleroglucan production increased to 42 g/L, with a productivity of 0.5 g/L·h. Thus, the pH-shift strategy and feeding approach could be useful for industrial scleroglucan production.

A shift in the balance between production and destruction of STRATOSPHERIC OZONE that results in a decline of the amount of OZONE in the lower stratosphere.
Loss of sensitivity to sounds as a result of auditory stimulation, manifesting as a temporary shift in auditory threshold. The temporary threshold shift, TTS, is expressed in decibels.
A tumor necrosis family receptor with specificity for OX40 LIGAND. It is found on the surface of activated T-LYMPHOCYTES where it plays a role in enhancing cytokine production and proliferation of CD4-POSITIVE T-LYMPHOCYTES. Signaling by the activated receptor occurs through its association with TNF RECEPTOR-ASSOCIATED FACTORS.
A strategy for purchasing health care in a manner which will obtain maximum value for the price for the purchasers of the health care and the recipients. The concept was developed primarily by Alain Enthoven of Stanford University and promulgated by the Jackson Hole Group. The strategy depends on sponsors for groups of the population to be insured. The sponsor, in some cases a health alliance, acts as an intermediary between the group and competing provider groups (accountable health plans). The competition is price-based among annual premiums for a defined, standardized benefit package. (From Slee and Slee, Health Care Reform Terms, 1993)
