Based on the duality of nonlinear programming, this paper proposes an accurate row-action type iterative algorithm which is appropriate to reconstruct sparse objects from a limited number of projections. The cost function we use is the Lp norm with p approximately 1.1. This norm allows us to pick up a sparse solution from a set of feasible solutions to the(More)
In this study, the thermostability of an alkaline α-amylase from Alkalimonas amylolytica was significantly improved through structure-based rational and the introduction of multiple arginines (Arg) on the protein surface. Based on an analysis of the tertiary structure, seven residues (glutamine (Gln) 166, Gln 169, serine (Ser) 270, lysine (Lys) 315, Gln(More)
Many enzymes are efficiently produced by microbes. However, the use of natural enzymes as biocatalysts has limitations such as low catalytic efficiency, low activity, and low stability, especially under industrial conditions. Many protein engineering technologies have been developed to modify natural enzymes and eliminate these limitations. Commonly used(More)
BACKGROUND Alkaline α-amylases have potential applications for hydrolyzing starch under high pH conditions in the starch and textile industries and as ingredients in detergents for automatic dishwashers and laundries. While the alkaline α-amylase gains increased industrial interest, the yield of alkaline α-amylases from wild-type microbes is low, and the(More)
Gram-positive bacteria are widely used to produce recombinant proteins, amino acids, organic acids, higher alcohols, and polymers. Many proteins have been expressed in Gram-positive hosts such as Corynebacterium, Brevibacterium, and Streptomyces. The favorable and advantageous characteristics (e.g., high secretion capacity and efficient production of(More)
Fusion constructs are used to improve the properties of or impart novel functionality to proteins for biotechnological applications. The biochemical characteristics of enzymes or functional proteins optimized by fusion include catalytic efficiency, stability, activity, expression, secretion, and solubility. In this review, we summarize the parameters of(More)
Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), a high-precision technique used for acquiring three-dimensional (3D) surface information, is widely used to study surface vegetation information. Moreover, the extraction of a vegetation point set from the LiDAR point cloud is a basic starting-point for vegetation information analysis, and an important part of its(More)
A particular river-whiting phenomenon occurred in the early 2000s in the Xiaoche River and since then it has been reoccurring from June to November each year. Residents were surprised by this phenomenon and worried about it. This study was designed to reveal the forming mechanism of the river-whiting phenomenon. A comparison of T, EC, ORP, DO, TDS and δ34S(More)
This study aimed to improve the thermostability of alkaline α-amylase from Alkalimonas amylolytica through structure-based rational design and systems engineering of its catalytic domain. Separate engineering strategies were used to increase alkaline α-amylase thermostability: (1) replace histidine residues with leucine to stabilize the least similar region(More)
