Effects of different drying–solidification processes on physical properties, volatile fraction, and antioxidant activity of non-centrifugal cane brown sugar
Abstract Three drying–solidification processes, namely open pan (OP), horizontal thin-film (HTF), and vertical thin-film (VTF) methods, produced non-centrifugal cane brown sugars with differentExpand

Cloning and nucleotide sequence of the beta-D-glucosidase gene from Bifidobacterium breve clb, and expression of beta-D-glucosidase activity in Escherichia coli.
Genomic DNA encoding a beta-D-glucosidase (EC 3.2.1.21), which has beta-D-fucosidase activity, was cloned from Bifidobacterium breve clb. We sequenced a 1.9-kbp cloned DNA fragment that contained aExpand
