Candida glycerinogenes, an osmotolerant yeast isolated from a natural sample in an environment of high osmotic pressure, had a modest sugar-tolerance and an extremely high glycerol productivity. The optimum conditions for glycerol formation by C. glycerinogenes were a temperature of 29–33 °C and a pH of 4–6. The optimum medium for glycerol production(More)
Larix olgensis is one of the important commercial timber tree species in northeastern China, but it does not naturally regenerate in L. olgensis forests even after cutting. To identify the causes of the regeneration failure, the authors tested the effects of site preparation in a thinned stand and in a clearcut on the emergence and early establishment of L.(More)
Foreign body aspiration (FBA) into the tracheobronchial tree is a frequent and serious cause of respiratory problems in children. Chest X-ray (CXR) is often inaccurate in diagnosing FBA when the object is radiolucent. Three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) is a noninvasive technique that can detect the narrowing of the airway resulting from the presence(More)
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is induced by a variety of damages such as trauma, ischemia, and iatrogenic injury, resulting in sense and motion dysfunction. Despite the improvements in medical and surgical care, current treatment methods for SCI demonstrate poor and delayed efficiency, leading to different degree of permanent loss of neural function and(More)
To disclose the addition of some strong promotional amino acids (namely glycine, glutamate, lysine and aspartic acid) is how to improve the glycerol productivity of Candida glycerinogenes. An amino acid addition strategy based on dynamic enzyme activity was applied to improve glycerol productivity and decrease the byproducts formation in a fermentation of(More)
The reactions of phosphorus trichloride with various amino acids afford the pentacoordinated spirophosphoranes. The reaction procedures were traced by 31P NMR spectra techniques. A new crystal structure of alanine derivative was characterized, which is a slightly distorted TBP structure. Besides, this kind of spirophosphoranes are potent inhibitors to(More)
The response surface methodology (RSM), which typically uses quadratic polynomials, is predominantly used for metamodeling in crashworthiness optimization because of the high computational cost of vehicle crash simulations. Research shows, however, that RSM may not be suitable for modeling highly nonlinear responses that can often be found in impact related(More)
