The aims of this study were to evaluate the effects of the addition of metabolic precursors and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) as an oxygen carrier to cultures of Bacillus subtilis BL53 during the production of γ-PGA. Kinetics analyses of cultivations of different media showed that B. subtilis BL53 is an exogenous glutamic acid-dependent strain. When the(More)
The percentage of body water, if calculated from impedance, was found to be significantly different from the classic 58%. This supports the view that the evaluation of the dialytic efficiency should be, in the near future, carried out on the basis of a 'two-pool' model instead of the old 'one-pool'. The serial collection of data during a dialytic session(More)
