Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural and linear polymer composed of repeating disaccharide units of β-1, 3-N-acetyl glucosamine and β-1, 4-glucuronic acid with a molecular weight up to 6 million Daltons. With excellent viscoelasticity, high moisture retention capacity, and high biocompatibility, HA finds a wide-range of applications in medicine, cosmetics, and(More)
Propionic acid production by Propionibacterium acidipropionici with glycerol as sole carbon source was studied in 7-L batch and 10m(3) bioreactor cultures. In batch cultures, propionic acid production increased and specific cell growth rate decreased with increasing glycerol concentrations. Maximum propionic acid production and productivity reached(More)
The effect of both dissolved oxygen (DO) and pH on L: -isoleucine production by batch culture of Brevibacterium lactofermentum was investigated. A two-stage agitation speed control strategy was developed, and the isoleucine production reached 23.3 g L(-1) in a relative short time (52 h), increased by 11.6% compared to the results obtained in the single(More)
l-Amino acid oxidases (LAAOs), which catalyze the stereospecific oxidative deamination of l-amino acids to α-keto acids and ammonia, are flavin adenine dinucleotide-containing homodimeric proteins. l-Amino acid oxidases are widely distributed in diverse organisms and have a range of properties. Because expressing LAAOs as recombinant proteins in(More)
Lipoxygenase (LOX; EC 1.13.11.12,) is an enzyme that is widely used in food industry to improve aroma, rheological, or baking properties of foods. In this study, we described the expression and characterization of Pseudomonas aeruginosa LOX in Escherichia coli. The recombinant LOX was successfully expressed and secreted by E. coli using its endogenous(More)
Alkaline polygalacturonate lyase (PGL) production by Pichia pastoris GS115 was used as a model to study the mechanism and strategy for enhancing heterologous protein production. In order to enhance cell viability and volumetric recombinant protein productivity, sorbitol, which had been confirmed to be a non-repressive carbon source, was added together with(More)
In previous work, three evolved Propionibacterium acidipropionici mutants with higher tolerant capacity of propionic acid (PA) were obtained by genome shuffling. Here, we attempted to unravel the acid-tolerant mechanism of P. acidipropionici by comparing the physiological changes between P. acidipropionici and three mutants. The parameters used for(More)
This work aims to achieve the overproduction of alkaline polygalacturonate lyase (PGL) with recombinant Escherichia coli by a two-stage glycerol feeding approach. First, the PGL coding gene from Bacillus subtilis WSHB04-02 was expressed in E. coli BL21 (DE3) under the strong inducible T7 promoter of the pET20b (+) vector. And then the influence of media(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)
