Ethanol was found as the major by-product in lactate fermentation by Rhizopus oryzae. Several methods have been conducted in order to limit ethanol formation, thus increasing the lactate yield. The direct way to suppress ethanol production can be done by inhibition of the responsible enzymes in the related pathway. Pyruvate decarboxylase (PDC) and alcohol(More)
Finger-tapping experiments were conducted to examine whether the dynamics of intrapersonal and interpersonal coordination systems can be described equally by the Haken-Kelso-Bunz model, which describes inter-limb coordination dynamics. This article reports the results of finger-tapping experiments conducted in both systems. Two within-subject factors were(More)
Bacillus sp. BC-001 was first reported as a potent thermotolerant and homofermentative strain for an industrial-scale L-lactate production. In a flask culture, this isolate fermented both glucose and sucrose to lactate with high yield (0.96 and 0.87 g/g) and productivity (2.8 and 2.6 g/L h), respectively. The higher lactate production performance was(More)
To reveal the differences between intraand inter-personal systems in terms of the perceptual effect on the stability of inter-limb coordination, the present study conducted a fingertapping experiment in in-phase and anti-phase mode. We investigated a between-subjects factor (the intra-/interpersonal condition), and a within-subject factor (the phase mode).(More)
To reveal the fundamental skills involved in slacklining, this study examined a hypothesis regarding single-leg standing on a slackline. In the field of practice, instructors teach learners how to maintain balance on a swinging flat belt (slackline), such as by moving their hands in parallel. We hypothesized that bimanual coordination in the horizontal(More)
Eight spore-forming lactic acid producing bacteria were isolated from tree barks in Thailand. They were identified as Sporolactobacillus nakayamae (Group I, three isolates), S. terrae (Group II, two isolates), S. kofuensis (Group III, one isolate) and S. inulinus (Group IV, two isolates) based on their phenotypic characteristics and 16S rRNA gene sequence(More)
