Factorisation of probability trees is a useful tool for inference in Bayesian networks. Prob-abilistic potentials some of whose parts are proportional can be decomposed as a product of smaller trees. Some algorithms, like lazy propagation, can take advantage of this fact. Also, the factorisation can be used as a tool for approximating inference, if the(More)
BACKGROUND Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells are the main host for producing recombinant proteins with human therapeutic applications mainly because of their capability to perform proper folding and glycosylation processes. In addition, mild hypothermia is one of the main strategies for maximising the productivity of these systems. However, little(More)
The review describes efforts toward metabolic engineering of production of organic acids. One aspect of the strategy involves the generation of an appropriate amount and type of reduced cofactor needed for the designed pathway. The ability to capture reducing power in the proper form, NADH or NADPH for the biosynthetic reactions leading to the organic acid,(More)
Piscirickettsia salmonis is the bacterium that causes Piscirickettsiosis, a systemic disease of salmonid fish responsible for significant economic losses within the aquaculture industry worldwide. The growth of the bacterium for vaccine formulation has been traditionally accomplished by infecting eukaryotic cell lines, a process that involves high(More)
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an important antioxidant used in medicine, dietary supplements, and cosmetic applications. In the present work, the production of CoQ10 using a recombinant Escherichia coli strain containing the decaprenyl diphosphate synthase from Sphingomonas baekryungensis was investigated, wherein the effects of culture medium, temperature, and(More)
