Fungal siderophores: structures, functions and applications
There are potential applications for siderophores in medicine, reprocessing of nuclear fuel, remediation of metal-contaminated sites and the treatment of industrial waste, including enhancing pathogenicity, acting as intracellular iron storage compounds and suppressing growth of other microorganisms.
Oxygen dependence of metabolic fluxes and energy generation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae CEN.PK113-1A
13C-constrained MFA enabled quantitative determination of intracellular fluxes in conditions of different redox challenges without including redox cofactors in metabolite mass balances.
Lipid production in batch and fed-batch cultures of Rhodosporidium toruloides from 5 and 6 carbon carbohydrates
Although high biomass and lipid production were achieved in both batch and fed-batch cultures with glucose as carbon source, for lipid production from mixtures of carbohydrates fed- batch cultivation was preferable and Constant feeding was better than intermittent feeding.
Single Cell Protein—State-of-the-Art, Industrial Landscape and Patents 2001–2016
The following review addresses the latest developments in SCP production from various organisms, giving an overview of commercial exploitation, a review of recent advances in the patent landscape (2001–2016), and a list of industrial players in the SCP field.
Engineering Filamentous Fungi for Conversion of d-Galacturonic Acid to l-Galactonic Acid
By deleting the gene encoding l-Galactonic acid dehydratase (lgd1 or gaaB) in two filamentous fungi, strains were obtained that converted d-galacturonic acid to l-galactic acid andIntracellular accumulation of l- Galactonate suggested that export may be limiting.
Microbial d-xylonate production
Abstractd-Xylonic acid is a versatile platform chemical with reported applications as complexing agent or chelator, in dispersal of concrete, and as a precursor for compounds such as co-polyamides,
Heterotrophic high cell-density fed-batch cultures of the phycocyanin-producing red alga Galdieria sulphuraria.
The results demonstrate that G. sulphuraria is well suited for growth in heterotrophic cultures at very high cell densities, and that such cultures produce significant amounts of phycocyanin.
Central carbon metabolism of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in anaerobic, oxygen-limited and fully aerobic steady-state conditions and following a shift to anaerobic conditions.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae CEN showed that more than 30 h was required for the cells to fully adapt to anaerobiosis, whereas those of metabolites of lower glycolysis generally decreased and Gene regulation was more complex, with some genes showing transient upregulation or downregulation during the adaptation toAnaerobic conditions.
