AIMS To screen and select the Bacillus spp. from Tua-nao of northern Thailand for fermented corticate soybean meal (FCSBM) production. METHODS AND RESULTS After isolation of Bacillus spp. from Tua-nao was carried out, cellulase, hemicellulases (i.e., β-mannanase and xylanase) and phytase production by isolated Bacillus spp. were determined. B. subtilis(More)
A thick-film electrochemical sensor with an iridium-carbon working electrode was used for determining polyphenols and their antioxidant capacity in white wine. Caffeic acid was used as a model species because it has the ability to produce the highest oxidation current. The correlation coefficient of 0.9975 was obtained between sensor response and caffeic(More)
Plackett and Burman statistical design was applied to screen the nutritional factors affecting β-galactosidase production by Lactobacillus fermentum CM33. Accordingly, lactose, tryptone and Tween80 were found to be the positive effective factors at the significant level above 80%. Central composite design (CCD) and response surface plot predicted that the(More)
Red mold rice is the fermentation product of ordinary white rice with various Monascus spp. and is popular in Asian countries as a food additive and for its beneficial effects on human health. However, most Monascus spp. not only produce valuable secondary metabolites, such as monacolin K, but also the mycotoxin citrinin, which limits the applicability of(More)
Laccase from Trametes polyzona WR710-1 was produced under solid-state fermentation using the peel from the Tangerine orange (Citrus reticulata Blanco) as substrate, and purified to homogeneity. This laccase was found to be a monomeric protein with a molecular mass of about 71 kDa estimated by SDS-PAGE. The optimum pH was 2.0 for ABTS, 4.0 for L-DOPA,(More)
A newly isolated strain of Bacillus subtilis produced β-mannanase when cultivated in a medium containing either locust bean gum, konjac mannan or guar gum as a sole carbon source. In contrast, xylanase was produced only when oat spelt xylan or wheat bran was used as a carbon source. The culture supernatant, which contained both β-mannanase and xylanase, was(More)
GH10 xylanase from Thermoascus aurantiacus strain SL16W (TasXyn10A) showed high stability and activity up to 70–75 °C. The enzyme’s half-lives were 101 h, 65 h, 63 min and 6 min at 60, 70, 75 and 80 °C, respectively. The melting point (T m), as measured by DSC, was 78.5 °C, which is in line with a strong activity decrease at 75–80 °C. The biomass-dissolving(More)
Suitable substrates for laccase production by the thermotolerant basidiomycete Coriolus versicolor strain RC3 were screened using solid and liquid media. In liquid basal medium, 1%(w/v) rice bran as a carbon source was found to be the most efficient substrate for laccase production compared to 1%(w/v) glucose, wheat bran and rice straw meal. After 15 days(More)
Miang is a fermented food product prepared from the tea leaves of Camellia sinensis var. assamica, and is traditionally produced in mountainous areas of northern Thailand. Although Miang has a long history and reveals deep-rooted cultural involvement with local people in northern Thailand, little is known regarding its microbial diversity. Yeasts were(More)
Purified laccase from Trametes polyzona WR710-1 was used as biocatalyst for bisphenol A biodegradation and decolorization of synthetic dyes. Degradation of bisphenol A by laccase with or without redox mediator, 1-hydroxybenzotriazole (HBT) was studied. The quantitative analysis by HPLC showed that bisphenol A rapidly oxidized by laccase with HBT. Bisphenol(More)
