A new approach to the prediction of secondary RNA structures based on the analysis of the kinetics of molecular self-organisation is proposed herein. The Markov process is used to describe structural reconstructions during secondary structure formation. This process is modelled by a Monte-Carlo method. Examples of the calculation by this method of the(More)
Production of d S-threo-isocitric acid (ICA) by yeast meets serious difficulties since it is accompanied by a simultaneous production of citric acid (CA) in significant amounts that reduces the yield of desired product. In order to develop an effective process of ICA production, 60 yeast strains of different genera (Candida, Pichia, Saccharomyces,(More)
The process of succinic acid (SA) production represents the combination of microbial synthesis of α-ketoglutaric acid from rapeseed oil by yeast Yarrowia lipolytica VKM Y-2412 and subsequent decarboxylation of α-ketoglutaric acid by hydrogen peroxide to SA that leads to the production of 69.0 g l−1 of SA and 1.36 g l−1 of acetic acid. SA was isolated from(More)
One of the main trends in the prokaryote genomics is the comparative analysis of metabolic pathways. This method can be used for the analysis of experimentally studied systems of co-regulated genes, as well as genes with unknown regulatory signals. In this study we apply the comparative analysis of regulatory signals to the genes of the enzymes for fatty(More)
The basic tendency in the field of plant protection concerns with reducing the use of pesticides and their replacement by environmentally acceptable biological preparations. The most promising approach to plant protection is application of microbial metabolites. In the last years, bactericidal, fungicidal, and nematodocidal activities were revealed for(More)
Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are functional transcripts that do not encode proteins. They are involved in many regulation pathways. The only general characteristic shared by many (but not all) known RNAs is folding into complex shapes that are crucial to function and thus should be conserved. This fact can be used for genome-wide prediction of ncRNAs. Our(More)
