The biosynthesis of a thermogelable, extracellular homo-beta-(1 leads to 3)-glucan called "curdlan," has been studied in batch and continuous cultures of Alcaligenes faecalis var. myxogenes. Curdlan production is associated with the poststationary phase of a nitrogen-depleted, aerobic batch culture. Exopolymer is not detected in single-stage, carbon-limited(More)
A two-stage continuous-stirred-tank-reactor (CSTR) system is used to achieve high final alcohol concentrations (>100 g/l) with Zymononas mobilis ATCC 29191. By employing continuous cell recycle on the second stage CSTR of a two-stage process a high overall volumetric productivity (18.13 g/l/h) is achieved together with >100 g/l effluent alcohol.
Beef heart cytochrome oxidase (EC 1.9.3.1) prepared in this laboratory consistently presents 10 Coomassie blue staining zones on SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. At pH 7.0 only two of these polypeptides (III and VIa) are labelled by radioactive N-ethyl maleimide (NEM). The labelling of VIa is variable and correlates with activity of particular(More)
