The growth of an oleaginous strain of Yarrowia lipolytica on an industrial fat composed of saturated free fatty acids (stearin) was studied. Lipid accumulation during primary anabolic growth was critically influenced by the medium pH and the incubation temperature. This process was independent of the nitrogen concentration in the culture medium, but was(More)
AIMS To study the biochemical response of Yarrowia lipolytica LGAM S(7)1 during growth on raw glycerol (the main by-product of bio-diesel production units) in order to produce metabolic products of industrial significance. METHODS AND RESULTS Yarrowia lipolytica was cultivated on raw glycerol or glucose in flasks. Although nitrogen-limited media were(More)
Cell growth, lipid accumulation and cellular lipid composition of Yarrowia lipolytica growing on mixtures of industrial fats containing stearic, oleic, linoleic and palmitic acid have been studied. During growth, the strain incorporated oleic and linoleic acids more rapidly than the saturated fatty acids. Relatively high lipid accumulation (up to 0.44 g of(More)
In the present report, the effect of glucose and stearin (substrate composed by saturated free-fatty acids) on the production of biomass, reserve lipid, and citric acid by Yarrowia lipolytica ACA-DC 50109 was investigated in nitrogen-limited cultures. Numerical models that were used in order to quantify the kinetic behavior of the above Yarrowia lipolytica(More)
Yarrowia lipolytica was cultivated on mixtures of saturated free fatty acids (an industrial derivative of animal fat called stearin), technical glycerol (the main by-product of bio-diesel production facilities), and glucose. The utilization of technical glycerol and stearin as co-substrates resulted in higher lipid synthesis and increased citric acid(More)
Chitosan and its derivatives functionalized by laccase-catalyzed oxidation of ferulic acid (FA) and ethyl ferulate (EF) were characterised for their physico-chemical, antioxidant and antibacterial properties. The enzymatic grafting of oxidised phenols led to FA-coloured and EF-colourless chitosan derivatives with good stability of colour and grafted phenols(More)
Many studies underlined the great benefits of hydrolysates used as additives in animal free media on cell culture performances. However, to precisely define hydrolysate supplementation strategies, a deeper understanding of their effect on cell growth and protein production is required. In the present study, the effect of addition of one yeast extract (YE)(More)
Two purified class IIa carnobacteriocins Cbn BM1 and Cbn B2, from Carnobacterium maltaromaticum CP5, were evaluated for antimicrobial activity against pathogenic, spoilage and lactic acid bacteria. Then, the presence of a synergistic mode of action of these two carnobacteriocins on Listeria sp., Enterococcus sp. and Carnobacterium sp. was investigated. A(More)
The enzymatic oxidation of ferulic acid (FA) and ethyl ferulate (EF) with Myceliophthora thermophila laccase, as biocatalyst, was performed in aqueous medium using an eco-friendly procedure to synthesize new active molecules. First, the commercial laccase was ultrafiltrated allowing for the elimination of phenolic contaminants and increasing the specific(More)
Sodium butyrate was used to enhance biosynthesis rates of recombinant human gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) expressed under the control of the SV40 or the cytomegalovirus immediate early promoter, respectively, in transfected V79 and CHO Chinese hamster cell lines. Maximal induction of GGT specific activity in butyrate-treated cells ranged from 3 to 5-fold(More)
