AIMS In this study, we have investigated the biochemical behaviour of Aspergillus sp. (five strains) and Penicillium expansum (one strain) fungi cultivated on waste cooking olive oil. The production of lipid-rich biomass was the main target of the work. In parallel, the biosynthesis of other extracellular metabolites (organic acids) and enzyme (lipase) and(More)
The influence of environmental parameters on mycelial linear growth ofPleurotus ostreatus, P. eryngii, P. pulmonarius, Agrocybe aegerita, Lentinula edodes, Volvariella volvacea andAuricularia auricula-judae was determined in two different nutrient media in a wide range of temperature, forming the basis for the assessment of their temperature optimaV.(More)
The cochlea has attained extreme surgical interest since cochlear implantation has been recognized as an established method for the management of certain types of bilateral profound hearing loss. Traditionally access to the cochlear turns is achieved through the middle ear. Extremely limited references exist in the literature regarding alternative surgical(More)
The etiology of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) underlies the influence of genetic variants in candidate genes. The CYP2B6 enzyme detoxifies many genotoxic xenobiotics, protecting cells from oxidative damage. The CYP2B6 gene is subjected to a single-nucleotide polymorphism (G⁵¹⁶T) with heterozygotes (GT) and homozygotes (TT) presenting decreased enzymatic(More)
Hearing loss is a common problem which, if remaining undetected during early childhood, could affect the patient's linguistic and mental abilities permanently. Although recommended, mass hearing screening has so far been problematic or even impossible due to several reasons. The available otoacoustic emission devices appear to be effective tools for(More)
