Rhamnolipid is one of the most effective and commonly used biosurfactant with wide industrial applications. Systematic strategies were applied to improve rhamnolipid (RL) production with a newly isolated indigenous strain Pseudomonas aeruginosa EM1 originating from an oil-contaminated site located in southern Taiwan. Seven carbon substrates and four(More)
OBJECTIVE Excessive glucocorticoid treatment increases the incidence of osteopenia and osteonecrosis. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) reportedly target messenger RNA expression and regulate osteoblastogenesis and skeletal development. We undertook this study to investigate whether miR-29a regulates glucocorticoid-mediated bone loss. METHODS Rats were given(More)
Pravastatin is one of the first available statins on the market. The purpose of this study was to isolate and identify the quinoline-degrading microorganism from petroleum-contaminated soil that could bioconvert compactin to pravastatin. There were 10,011 microorganism colonies isolated; five strains showed a higher capability for quinoline biodegradation.(More)
This study examined the effects of pH-controlled and fermentation strategies on 2,3-butanediol (2,3-BDO) production by an isolated Klebsiella sp. Zmd30 strain. The pH value of 6.0 was found to be optimal among the investigated range of 4.5-9.0. In batch fermentation, the concentration, productivity and yield of 2,3-BDO were 57.17 g/l, 1.59 g/l/h and 82%,(More)
Co-production of gamma -glutamylcysteine (gamma -GC) and glutathione (GSH) by a novel mutant strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae FC-3 and its kinetic analysis were investigated. The strain could produce gamma -GC and GSH with high yields (4.22 and 14.3 mg/g-DCW, respectively) in batch submerged cultures. Effects of medium components and cultivation conditions(More)
