The production of recombinant anti-HIV peptide, T-20, in Escherichia coli was optimized by statistical experimental designs (successive designs with multifactors) such as 2(4-1) fractional factorial, 2(3) full factorial, and 2(2) rotational central composite design in order. The effects of media compositions (glucose, NPK sources, MgSO4, and trace(More)
Random copolymers of 3-hydroxybutyrate (3HB) and 4-hydroxybutyrate (4HB) with a wide range of compositions varying from 0 to 83 mol% 4HB were produced by Alcaligenes latus from the mixed carbon substrates of 3-hydroxybutyric and 4-hydroxybutyric acids. The structure and physical properties of P(3HB-co-4HB) were characterized by1H and13C NMR spectroscopy,(More)
The medium formulation and robust process modeling for anti-HIV peptide (T-20) production by recombinant Escherichia coli overexpression were studied by employing a crossed experimental design. The crossed design, a mixture design combined with process factor (induction duration), was used to find the optimal medium formulation and process time. The optimal(More)
To find a simple enzymatic strategy for the efficient synthesis of the expensive 5′-hydroxyomeprazole sulfide, a recently identified minor human metabolite, from omeprazole sulfide, which is an inexpensive substrate. The practical synthetic strategy for the 5′-OH omeprazole sulfide was accomplished with a set of highly active CYP102A1 mutants, which were(More)
