Biotechnological production of 2,3-butanediol (hereafter referred to as 2,3-BD) from wastes and excessive biomass is a promising and attractive alternative for traditional chemical synthesis. In the face of scarcity of fossil fuel supplies the bio-based process is receiving a significant interest, since 2,3-BD may have multiple practical applications (e.g.(More)
The history of 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PD) conversion from being a specialty chemical to being a bulk chemical illustrates that the concerted effort of different metabolic engineering approaches brings the most successful results. In order to metabolically tailor the 1,3-PD production pathway multiple strategies have been pursued. Knocking-out genes(More)
BACKGROUND High supply of raw, residual glycerol from biodiesel production plants promote the search for novel biotechnological methods of its utilization. In this study we attempted modification of glycerol catabolism in a nonconventional yeast species Yarrowia lipolytica through genetic engineering approach. RESULTS To address this, we developed a novel(More)
Klebsiella spp are one of the best natural producers of 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PD). However, their usage in the biotechnological production of the diol is limited, since the species belong to the second hazard group. Nevertheless, multiple advantageous traits of Klebsiella spp justify the international effort devoted to develop a biotechnological process of(More)
A case control study of 50 rheumatoid factor positive (RA+) and 50 rheumatoid factor negative (RA-) patients with rheumatoid arthritis has been carried out. As expected, the RA+ group has significantly more nodules and vasculitis. In terms of clinical joint involvement, the RA- had large-joint involvement. Radiologically, seropositive disease was(More)
Raw-starch-digesting enzymes (RSDE) are of major importance for industrial applications, as their usage greatly simplifies the starch processing pipeline. To date, only microbial RSDE have gained considerable attention, since only microbial production of enzymes meets industrial demands. In this study, α-amylase from rice weevil (Sitophilus oryzae), the(More)
This is the first report on the ability of Yarrowia lipolytica strains to produce 2-phenylethanol (2-PE), which has not been identified for this species to date. 2-PE is a valuable aroma compound of rose-like odor. Its isolation from the other than microbial source—rose petals, is limited by the substrate availability. Thus, this chemical compound(More)
Starch is the dominant feedstock consumed for the bioethanol production, accounting for 60 % of its global production. Considering the significant contribution of bioethanol to the global fuel market, any improvement in its major operating technologies is economically very attractive. It was estimated that up to 40 % of the final ethanol unit price is(More)
Our previous studies showed that glycerol fermentation by Hafnia alvei AD27 strain was accompanied by formation of high quantities of lactate. The ultimate aim of this work was the elimination of excessive lactate production in the 1,3-propanediol producer cultures. Group II intron-mediated deletion of ldh (lactate dehydrogenase) gene in an environmental(More)
