Bioactive conformation of drugs is one of the key points for understanding the ligand-receptor interactions. In the present study, by combining density functional theory-based (DFT-based) conformation analysis with quantitative structure-activity relationship analysis (QSAR), we developed successfully a new approach (DFT/QSAR) to carry out bioactive(More)
Effects of different oxygen transfer rates (OTR) on the cell growth and vitamin B(12) biosynthesis of Pseudomonas denitrificans were first investigated under dissolved oxygen limiting conditions. The results demonstrated that high OTR accelerated cell growth and initial vitamin B(12) biosynthesis rate, while lower OTR was critical for higher productivity in(More)
A metabolic network was constructed for the Acremonium chrysogenum cultivation fed with soybean oil. Metabolic flux analysis indicated that the shift from exponential growth to rapid cephalosporin C (CPC) formation was accompanied by 1.63- and 5-fold carbon flux enlargement in TCA cycle and glyoxylate by-pass, respectively. The flux via pentose phosphate(More)
The yeast Pichia pastoris GS115 is a widely used microbial cell factory for the production of heterologous protein. In order to reveal the impacts of high heterologous protein expression on the central metabolism of Pichia pastoris GS115 using glucose as sole carbon source, we engineered a high β-galactosidase expression strain P. pastoris G1HL and a low(More)
In this paper a software sensor based on a fuzzy neural network approach was proposed for real-time estimation of nutrient concentrations. In order to improve the network performance, fuzzy subtractive clustering was used to identify model architecture, extract and optimize fuzzy rule of the model. A split network structure was applied separately for(More)
A laboratory-scale anaerobic/anoxic/oxic (AAO) wastewater treatment system was employed to investigate the effects of hydraulic retention time (HRT) and sludge retention time (SRT) on the removal and fate of di-n-butyl phthalate (DnBP). HRT had no significant effect on DNBP removal between 12 and 30 h. However, longer HRT increased DnBP accumulation in the(More)
