We describe the impact of two propeptides and PedC on the production yield and the potency of recombinant pediocins produced in Lactococcus lactis. On the one hand, the sequences encoding the propeptides SD or LEISSTCDA were inserted between the sequence encoding the signal peptide of Usp45 and the structural gene of the mature pediocin PA-1. On the other(More)
SNO+ is a large liquid scintillator-based experiment located 2 km underground at SNOLAB, Sudbury, Canada. It reuses the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory detector, consisting of a 12 m diameter acrylic vessel which will be filled with about 780 tonnes of ultra-pure liquid scintillator. Designed as a multipurpose neutrino experiment, the primary goal of SNO+ is a(More)
BACKGROUND Because the model yeast Yarrowia lipolytica can synthesize and store lipids in quantities up to 20 % of its dry weight, it is a promising microorganism for oil production at an industrial scale. Typically, optimization of the lipid production process is performed in the laboratory and later scaled up for industrial production. However, the(More)
e duas escalas de saúde auto-avaliada (Andrade, 2001). Os bancários mais ativos fisicamente mostraram-se menos estressados (F = 4.87, p = .008); resultado significativo apenas para as mulheres (F = 4.11, p = .019). Os ativos também apresentaram melhor saúde percebida (p = .000,  = .56) e menor frequência de adoecimento (p = .02,  = −.34); resultados(More)
