In this study, an aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) was over-expressed in Klebsiella pneumoniae for simultaneous production of 3-hydroxypropionic acid (3-HP) and 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PDO). Various genes encoding ALDH were cloned and expressed in K. pneumoniae, and expression of Escherichia colialdH resulted in the highest 3-HP titer in anaerobic cultures in(More)
Previous evidence showed that administration of d-galactose (d-gal) increased ROS production and resulted in impairment of cholinergic system. Troxerutin, a natural bioflavonoid, has been reported to have many benefits and medicinal properties. In this study, we evaluated the protective effect of troxerutin against d-gal-induced impairment of cholinergic(More)
Escherichia coli NZN111 is a pflB ldhA double mutant which loses its ability to ferment glucose anaerobically due to redox imbalance. In this study, two-stage culture of NZN111 was carried out for succinic acid production. It was found that when NZN111 was aerobically cultured on acetate, it regained the ability to ferment glucose with succinic acid as the(More)
Fed-batch cultures of Klebsiella pneumoniae expressing Escherichia coli aldH were performed under microaerobic conditions to investigate the effects on metabolites production. Increasing the aeration rate enhanced cell growth and 3-hydroxypropionic acid (3-HP) production, but reduced 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PDO) formation. The recombinant strain K.(More)
Evidence shows that administration of D-galactose (D-gal) induces reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and inflammatory response resulting in neurodegenerative changes. Ursolic acid (UA), a triterpenoid compound, has been reported to possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Our previous studies have demonstrated that UA could protect mouse(More)
We report the first successful test of an interoperable guideline execution engine that interprets encoded clinical guideline content and executes that content via functions of a target clinical information system (CIS). For this test, an exemplar immunization guideline was encoded in the SAGE guideline model using standards-based information models and(More)
The success of clinical decision-support systems requires that they are seamlessly integrated into clinical workflow. In the SAGE project, which aims to create the technological infra-structure for implementing computable clinical practice guide-lines in enterprise settings, we created a deployment-driven methodology for developing guideline knowledge(More)
In fed-batch culture of Klebsiella pneumoniae, 1,3-propanediol production was growth associated, while the by-products, including lactic acid and ethanol, increased sharply as the cells grew slowly. When the fed-batch culture was supplied with a mixture of organic acids including citrate, fumarate and succinate, cell growth and 1,3-propanediol production(More)
Escherichia coli DH5α grows poorly in a chemically defined medium, but its acetate-tolerant mutant, DA19, grows fast and produces less acetate. To investigate the differences in metabolism between the two strains, the samples of continuous cultures at steady state were analyzed by two-dimensional SDS-PAGE (2-D SDS-PAGE) and peptide mass fingerprinting(More)
Although the discovery of aquaporins in plants has resulted in a paradigm shift in the understanding of plant water relations, the relationship between aquaporins and drought resistance still remains elusive. From an agronomic viewpoint, upland rice is traditionally considered as showing drought avoidance. In the investigation of different morphological and(More)
