1,3-Propanediol, a valuable bifunctional molecule, can be produced from renewable resources using microorganisms. It has several promising properties for many synthetic reactions, particularly for polymer and cosmetic industries. By virtue of being a natural product, relevant biochemical pathways can be harnessed into fermentation processes to produce(More)
A low-temperature, alkaline, and detergent-compatible lipase from Fusarium glob-ulosum (FGL) has been produced using an inexpensive source, viz. neem oil. Maximum li-pase production of 12 300 U/L was achieved in 96 h on optimizing various physicochemical parameters. The lipase exhibited remarkable stability in the presence of commercial detergents ,(More)
n-Butanol fermentation using Clostridium strains suffers from low titers due to the inability of the strains to tolerate n-butanol. The current study demonstrates a process to get high titer of n-butanol in a single batch mode from the renewable feedstock jatropha seed cake by employing Clostridium acetobutylicum. Chemical mutagenesis was done for(More)
