Exopolysaccharides (EPSs) produced by diverse group of microbial systems are rapidly emerging as new and industrially important biomaterials. Due to their unique and complex chemical structures and many interesting physicochemical and rheological properties with novel functionality, the microbial EPSs find wide range of commercial applications in various(More)
Halomonas smyrnensis AAD(T) is a halophilic, gram-negative bacterium that can efficiently produce levan from sucrose as carbon source via levansucrase activity. However, systems-based approaches are required to further enhance its metabolic performance for industrial application. As an important step toward this goal, the genome-scale metabolic network of(More)
Levan is a bioactive fructan polymer that is mainly associated with high-value applications where exceptionally high purity requirements call for well-defined cultivation conditions. In this study, microbial levan production by the halophilic extremophile Halomonas smyrnensis AAD6(T) was investigated systematically. For this, different feeding strategies in(More)
E12-10-002 has been approved by PAC35 to measure H(e, e′) and D(e, e′) inclusive cross sections in the resonance region and beyond for a precise extraction of the F2 structure function at large Bjorken x, up to 0.99, and intermediate four-momentum transferred squared Q, up to about 17 GeV. These measurements will be used for detailed studies of the(More)
We propose to measure inclusive cross sections on a range of nuclei Ca, Sn, in the range 0.2 < Q 2 < 3.8 (GeV/c) 2. The data will provide significant checks to verify (or not) the positive slope in the logarithmic derivative of the F Sn 2 /F C 2 (Q 2) from the NMC data, which has a significant impact on nuclear modifications to the gluons extracted from(More)
