Use of an osmotically sensitive mutant of Propionibacterium freudenreichii subspp. shermanii for the simultaneous productions of organic acids and trehalose from biodiesel waste based crude glycerol.
Recently suitability of crude glycerol for trehalose and propionic acid productions was reported using Propionibacterium freudenreichii subspp. shermanii and it was concluded that presence of KCl inExpand
Trends in bacterial trehalose metabolism and significant nodes of metabolic pathway in the direction of trehalose accumulation
The present review dealt with the trehalose metabolism in bacteria and an effort was made to recognize how enzymes at different nodes of metabolic pathway can influence treHalose accumulation. Expand
Bioprocess development for nicotinic acid hydroxamate synthesis by acyltransferase activity of Bacillus smithii strain IITR6b2
In this work, acyltransferase activity of a new bacterial isolate Bacillus smithii strain IITR6b2 was utilized for the synthesis of nicotinic acid hydroxamate (NAH), a heterocyclic class ofExpand
Suitability of crude glycerol obtained from biodiesel waste for the production of trehalose and propionic acid
Crude glycerol is a major by-product of the biodiesel manufacturing industry. Utilization of this by-product is an area of interest among biotechnologists and chemists. In particular, manyExpand
Nitrilase-catalysed conversion of acrylonitrile by free and immobilized cells of Streptomyces sp.
The biotransformation of acrylonitrile was investigated using thermophilic nitrilase produced from a new isolate Streptomyces sp. MTCC 7546 in both the free and immobilized state. Under optimalExpand
Isolation and characterization of a protease-producing novel haloalkaliphilic bacterium Halobiforma sp. strain BNMIITR from Sambhar lake in Rajasthan, India
A novel haloalkaliphilic bacterium designated as strain BNMIITR was isolated from a soil sample collected from Sambhar lake, Rajasthan, in northern India and showed resistance towards several antibiotics and produced an extracellular alkaline protease. Expand
Improved trehalose production from biodiesel waste using parent and osmotically sensitive mutant of Propionibacterium freudenreichii subsp. shermanii under aerobic conditions
An effort was made to achieve higher production of trehalose, propionic acid, and lactic acid using the parent and an osmotically sensitive mutant of P. freudenreichii subsp. Expand
Optimization of nitrilase production from a new thermophilic isolate
A new thermostable nitrilase-producing isolate identified as Streptomyces sp. MTCC 7546 has been studied extensively for the optimization of enzyme production operating in batch mode. TheExpand
Production of Xylanase of Bacillus coagulans and its bleaching potential
SummaryThe production of xylanase from Bacillus coagulans has been studied with respect to the environmental parameters, the carbon source and the concentration of carbon source at the shake flaskExpand
Lactic acid fermentation in cell-recycle membrane bioreactor
There was a continuous increase in cell density in cell-recycle fermentation in spite of complete consumption of substrate and control of cell density was attempted by cell bleeding and reduction in yeast extract concentration. Expand
