Biosynthesis and biotechnological production of statins by filamentous fungi and application of these cholesterol-lowering drugs
The use of statins can lead to a reduction in coronary events related to hypercholesterolemia, but the relationship between benefit and risk, and any possible interaction with other drugs, must be taken into account.
Antimicrobial activity of lysozyme and lactoferrin incorporated in cellulose-based food packaging
Comparison of various post-treatments for recovering methane from agricultural digestate
Production of statins by filamentous fungi
Several Monascus and Aspergillus strains were screened for statins production. Lovastatin, monacolin J, pravastatin and mevastatin were produced, with higher yields from the A. terreus strains than…

Influence of different fermentation parameters on glutathione volumetric productivity by Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Development of a novel antimicrobial film based on chitosan with LAE (ethyl-N(α)-dodecanoyl-l-arginate) and its application to fresh chicken.
Production and purification of statins from Aspergillus terreus strains
Recovery yield showed that 83% lovastatin was associated with the mycelium and 17% was free in the culture filtrate as well as similar yields of monacolin J were detected for both strains.
Enzymatic and metabolic activities of four anaerobic sludges and their impact on methane production from ensiled sorghum forage.
Antimicrobial Performance of Two Different Packaging Materials on the Microbiological Quality of Fresh Salmon
In the present research the antimicrobial activity of two active packaging materials on the spoilage microbiota of fresh salmon fillets was tested. A PET-coated film (PET: Polyethylene Terephthalate)…
