Biodegradation of the mixtures of 4-chlorophenol and phenol by Comamonas testosteroni CPW301
The simultaneous degradation of the 4-CP and phenol is useful not only for enhanced cell growth but also for the bioremediation of both compounds, which are normally present in hazardous waste sites as a mixture.
A systems biology approach identifies the biochemical mechanisms regulating monoterpenoid essential oil composition in peppermint
The development of a kinetic mathematical model that accurately simulates the developmental patterns of monoterpenoid essential oil accumulation in peppermint was used to evaluate the biochemical processes underlying experimentally determined changes in the monoterpene pathway under low ambient-light intensities.
Response of plant tissue culture to a high shear environment
In testing suspension cultures of various ages, it was found that those cultures in the latter stages of exponential growth and early in the stationary phase were more susceptible to shear damage than cultures inThe lag phase, early exponential phase, or later stationary phase.
Developmental and environmental regulation of two ribosomal protein genes in tobacco
Two cDNA clones, TSC29 and TSC40, were isolated from a cDNA library prepared from three-day-old tobacco cell suspension grown to early exponential stage and showed higher expression than leaves and flowers, indicating that these clones are differentially regulated in various cell types.
Endoplasmic reticulum stress in the development of multiple myeloma and drug resistance
This review addresses how control of endoplasmic reticulum stress is important in the development of MM and how the unfolded protein response and its associated stress response pathways are involved in theDevelopment of bortezomib resistance.
The effect of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) on the heavy chain monoclonal antibody production from plant suspension cultures
The addition of polyvinylpyrrolidone to the medium stabilized the extracellular HC MAb and increased its production 35 fold to 350 μg/l.
Sorption of heavy metals by untreated red fir sawdust
Equilibrium and rate relationships have been determined for the sorption of divalent copper (Cu2+) and hexavalent chromium (Cr6+) onto untreated Red Fir sawdust. For both ions, the equilibrium
Promoter elements controlling developmental and environmental regulation of a tobacco ribosomal protein gene L34
Results suggest that the TATA box and CAAT box regions are also important for the rpL34 promoter activity in addition to the 50 bp upstream region.
Cultivation of plant cells in aqueous two-phase polymer systems
Suspension cultures of Nicotiana tabacum have been successfully grown in aqueous, two-phase systems comprised of polyethylene glycol (PEG) and dextran in a modified LS medium, covering a range of both polymer molecular weight and concentration.
Mathematical Modeling-Guided Evaluation of Biochemical, Developmental, Environmental, and Genotypic Determinants of Essential Oil Composition and Yield in Peppermint Leaves1[W][OA]
Simulated and measured essential oil profiles were in very good agreement, indicating that modeling is a valuable tool for guiding metabolic engineering efforts aimed at improving essential oil quality and quantity.
