Synthetic wastewater containing sulphate at a concentration of 745 (± 17) mg/L was used. COD was supplied as lactate in variable concentrations at COD/SO ratios of 1.2-2.4. The pH of the feed ranged between 5.2 and 6.2. The highest measured remo...

Evaluation of chromium removal efficiency at varying operating conditions of a novel bioelectrochemical system.

The assessment of chromium removal efficiency (CRE) was studied using experimental trials with variations in operating conditions for evaluating performance efficiency of the Bioelectrochemical system (BES). During the study, maximum CRE of 88.36 ± 8.16% was obtained at cathode pH 2 ± 0.1 from the varied cathode pH (pH 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7). With varying reactor temperatures from 25 to 45 °C (25, 30, 35, 40, 45 °C), BES resulted in maximum CRE of 85.93 ± 9.62% at 40 °C. CRE increased fr...


Cloning, expression, and characterization of an alkaline protease, AprV, from Vibrio sp. DA1-1.

A novel alkaline protease (named AprV) gene from Vibrio sp. DA1-1 was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3) pLysS. The sequence analysis showed the highest homology of 68% with the characterized protease from Alkalimonas collagenimarina AC40. The recombinant AprV was purified with the molecular weight of 28 kDa. The optimum temperature and pH were determined to be 55 °C and 10.0, respectively. The enzyme activity was slightly enhanced by Ca, Mg, Zn, Ba, and, however, was highly inhibited by...

A dicyclic-type electrode-based biofilm reactor for simultaneous nitrate and Cr(VI) reduction.

A dicyclic-type electrode-based biofilm-electrode reactor (BER) was investigated for simultaneous removal of nitrate and Cr(VI). In the absence of Cr(VI), almost complete denitrification of 50 mg/L NO-N was achieved at a very low C/N ratio of 0.8 with the optimal current of 50 mA. Cr(VI) was removed by biological reduction and co-precipitation when Cr(VI) was taken as the only electron acceptor, and the removal efficiencies of Cr(VI) were 99.8%. In the coexistent system of nitrate and Cr(VI), nitrate remo...

The start of the Abiogenesis: Preservation of homochirality in proteins as a necessary and sufficient condition for the establishment of the metabolism.

Biosystems contain an almost infinite amount of vital important details, which together ensure their life. There are, however, some common structures and reactions in the systems: the homochirality of carbohydrates and proteins, the metabolism and the genetics. The Abiogenesis, or the origin of life, is probably not a result of a series of single events, but rather the result of a gradual process with increasing complexity of molecules and chemical reactions, and the prebiotic synthesis of molecules might n...

A comparative study of eubacterial communities by PCR-DGGE fingerprints in anoxic and aerobic biotrickling filters used for biogas desulfurization.

Biological desulfurization has proven to be a process that is technically and economically feasible on using biotrickling filters that can be performed under aerobic and anoxic conditions. However, microbial communities are different mainly due to the use of different final electron acceptors. The analysis of microbial communities in these systems has not been addressed with regard to the anoxic process. The aim of the work reported here was to analyse the eubacterial community in the two types of bioreacto...

A novel osmotic pressure strategy to improve erythritol production by Yarrowia lipolytica from glycerol.

Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is polymer that was used to replace NaCl (reference media) as an osmotic stress agent for the synthesis of erythritol by the osmophilic yeast Yarrowia lipolytica. Two strains, the wild-type strain IMUFRJ 50682 and the lab strain W29, were grown in the presence of PEG of different molecular weights. For strain IMUFRJ 50682, the erythritol titer was increased by 40% in the presence of PEG2000 as compared to the reference media (with NaCl). A similar increase was also observed for str...

Immobilization of cellulase on thermo-sensitive magnetic microspheres: improved stability and reproducibility.

Magnetic double-shell hybrid microspheres (FeO@SiO@p(NIPAM-co-GMA)) have been developed as a promising supported substrate for the immobilization of cellulase. Since the surface of the magnetic microspheres not only contains an epoxy group from GMA (glycidyl methacrylate) that can covalently bind to the enzyme, but also has an intelligent temperature response property from NIPAM (N-isopropylacrylamide), the cellulase can be covalently bonded to the magnetic microspheres and have a temperature-sensitive capa...

Bio-activity of aminosulfonyl ureas in the light of nucleic acid bases and DNA base pair interaction.

The quantum chemical descriptors based on density functional theory (DFT) are applied to predict the biological activity (log IC) of one class of acyl-CoA: cholesterol O-acyltransferase (ACAT) inhibitors, viz. aminosulfonyl ureas. ACAT are very effective agents for reduction of triglyceride and cholesterol levels in human body. Successful two parameter quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models are developed with a combination of relevant global and local DFT based descriptors for prediction...

Over the past few decades, the use of cell microencapsulation technology has been promoted for a wide range of applications as sustained drug delivery systems or as cells containing biosystems for regenerative medicine. However, difficulty in their preservation and storage has limited their availability to healthcare centers. Because the preservation in cryogenic temperatures poses many biological and biophysical challenges and that the technology has not been well understood, the slow cooling cryopreservat...

Enzymatic synthesis of cefazolin using immobilized recombinant cephalosporin-acid synthetase as the biocatalyst.

A method for the synthesis of β-lactam antibiotic cefazolin (CEZ) by enzymatic acylation of 7-amino-3-(5-methyl-l,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)thiomethyl-3-cephem-4-carboxylic acid (TDA) using immobilized cephalosporin-acid synthetase (IECASA) from recombinant E. coli strain VKPM B-12316 has been developed. A stepwise pH gradient designed on the basis of investigations on the solubility of components was applied for synthesis. This helped in avoiding the precipitation of TDA in the reaction when its initial concent...

Full-cell catalysis temperature and the cell dosage rate o...

Polymersomes as nanoreactors for preparative biocatalytic applications: current challenges and future perspectives.

Polymersomes are hollow, spherical vesicles that are surrounded by a polymer membrane. The applied polymer must be amphiphilic to promote self-assembly in aqueous solution. At the same time, the polymer composition is highly versatile, which leads to diverse properties in terms of chemical and mechanical stability, membrane permeability and the ability to functionalize the membrane. By encapsulating chemical or biological substances within the polymersomes, drug delivery systems, cell mimetics or catalytic ...

Investigation of copper inhibition of nitrifying moving bed biofilm (MBBR) reactors during long term operations.

Copper, a prevalent heavy metal in industrial mining wastewaters, has been shown to inhibit nitrification in wastewater treatment systems. Biofilm treatment systems have an inherent potential to reduce inhibition. This study investigated the effects of copper concentration on nitrifying biofilms in moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) systems across long term operation using influent ammonia concentrations representative of gold mining wastewater. Conventional isotherm models did not adequately model the attac...

A biorefinery process for high yield production of succinic acid from biomass sugars was investigated using recombinant Escherichia coli. The major problem been addressed is utilization of waste biomass for the production of succinic acid using metabolic engineering strategy. Here, methanol extract of Strophanthus preussii was used for fermentation. The process parameters were optimized. Glucose (9 g/L), galactose (4 g/L), xylose (6 g/L) and arabinose (0.5 g/L) were the major sugars present in the metha...

A Liquid-Metal-Based Magnetoactive Slurry for Stimuli-Responsive Mechanically Adaptive Electrodes.

Electrical communication between a biological system and outside equipment allows one to monitor and influence the state of the tissue and nervous networks. As the bridge, bioelectrodes should possess both electrical conductivity and adaptive mechanical properties matching the target soft biosystem, but this is still a big challenge. A family of liquid-metal-based magnetoactive slurries (LMMSs) formed by dispersing magnetic iron particles in a Ga-based liquid metal (LM) matrix is reported here. The mechanic...

A systematic correlation analysis of carotenoids, chlorophyll, non-pigmented cell mass, and cell number for the blueprint of Dunaliella salina culture in a photobioreactor.

Microalgal carotenoids are attractive health ingredients, but their production should be optimized to improve cost-effectiveness. Understanding cellular physiology centered on carotenoid synthesis is the prerequisite for this work. Therefore, systematic correlation analyses were conducted among chlorophyll, carotenoids, non-pigmented cell mass, and cell number of Dunaliella salina in a specified condition over a relatively long culture time. First, an integrated correlation was performed: a temporal profile...

In paternity testing, DNA polymorphism analysis not only settles explicitly disputed paternity issue but also provides information on mutation frequencies in STR loci. In this study, insertion or deletion of one repetitive unit was observed in 38 of 32,391 meiotic transfers analysed in 953 paternity testing cases. Parentage samples from Upper Silesia (southern Poland) were examined in 2008-2014 with the use of three commercially available amplification kits: AmpFlSTR Identifiler (Applied Biosystems), PowerP...

The Parsortix™ Cell Separation System-A versatile liquid biopsy platform.

Cancer cells from solid tumors can enter the circulatory system and survive to subsequently form distant metastases. The CellSearch® system (Menarini-Silicon Biosystems, Huntingdon Valley, PA) was the first, FDA-cleared system that provided a reliable tool for the investigation of circulating tumor cells (CTCs), which have been shown to be strongly associated with poor survival and therapy failure. Since that time, a number of new technologies have been introduced to improve CTC detection and/or isolation ...

Fermentation performance and metabolomic analysis of an engineered high-yield PUFA-producing strain of Schizochytrium sp.

The ω-3/long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs) play an important role in human health, but they cannot be synthesized in sufficient amounts by the human body. In a previous study, we obtained an engineered Schizochytrium sp. strain (HX-RS) by exchanging the acyltransferase (AT) gene, and it was able to co-produce docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid. To investigate the mechanism underlying the increase of PUFA content in HX-RS, the discrepancies of fermentation performance, key enzyme ...

The growth of Pichia pastoris Mut on methanol-glycerol mixtures fits to interactive dual-limited kinetics: model development and application to optimised fed-batch operation for heterologous protein production.

The methanol-glycerol co-feeding during the induction stage for heterologous protein production in Pichia pastoris has shown significant productive applications. Available model analysis applied to this dual-limited condition is scarce and normally does not consider the interaction effects between the substrates. In this work, a dual-limited growth model of P. pastoris considering an interactive kinetic effect was applied to an optimised fed-batch process production of heterologous Rhizopus oryzae lipase (R...
