Candida tropicalis isolated from acclimated activated sludge was used in this study. Cell suspensions with 5 x 10(7) cells ml(-1) were irradiated by using a He-Ne laser. After mutagenesis, the irradiated cell suspension was diluted and plated on yeast extract-peptone-dextrose (YEPD) medium. Plates with approximately 20 individual colonies were selected, and(More)
BACKGROUND Polyketides, such as spinosad, are mainly synthesized in the stationary phase of the fermentation. The synthesis of these compounds requires many primary metabolites, such as acetyl-CoA, propinyl-CoA, NADPH, and succinyl-CoA. Their synthesis is also significantly influenced by NADH/NAD+. Rex is the sensor of NADH/NAD+ redox state, whose structure(More)
To improve the yield of daptomycin by Streptomyces roseosporus, a method of rational screening of He-Ne Laser and N-methyl-N-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (NTG)-induced mutants was employed in this work. Under the optimal mutagenesis conditions (NTG of 0.3 mg/L, 40 min; irradiation at 15 mW, 15 min), two steps of combined mutations were conducted. Screening of(More)
Traditionally, nisin was produced industrially by using Lactococcus lactis in the neutral fermentation process. However, nisin showed higher activity in the acidic environment. How to balance the pH value for bacterial normal growth and nisin activity might be the key problem. In this study, 17 acid-tolerant genes and 6 lactic acid synthetic genes were(More)
In the present work, a comprehensive metabolic network of Streptomyces roseosporus LC-54-20 was proposed for daptomycin production. The analysis of extracellular metabolites throughout the batch fermentation was evaluated in addition to daptomycin and biomass production. Metabolic flux distributions were based on stoichiometrical reaction as well as the(More)
In this study, polyurethane foam (PUF) was chemically treated to immobilize Streptomyces thermotolerans 11432 for semi-continuous production of acetylisovaleryltylosin (AIV). Based on experimental results, positive cross-linked PUF (PCPUF) was selected as the most effective carrier according to immobilized cell mass. The effect of adsorption time on(More)
In this study, Streptomyces roseosporus was subjected to helium-neon (He-Ne) laser (632.8 nm) irradiation to improve the production ability of extracellular antibiotic daptomycin. Under the optimum irradiation dosage of 18 mW for 22 min, a stable positive mutant strain S. roseosporus LC-54 was obtained. The maximum A21978C (daptomycin is a semisynthetic(More)
He-Ne laser technology was utilized in this study to investigate the response of Alcaligenes faecalis to laser stimulation. The irradiation experiments were conducted by the adjustment of the output power from 5 to 25 mW and the exposure time from 5 to 25 min. The results showed that the survival rate changed regularly with the variety of irradiation dose,(More)
Nisin, a polycyclic antibacterial peptide produced by Lactococcus lactis, is stable at low pH. Improving the acid tolerance of L. lactis could thus enhance nisin yield. Small non-coding RNAs (sRNAs) play essential roles in acid tolerance by regulating their target mRNAs at the post-transcriptional level. In this study, a novel sRNA, s015, was identified in(More)
Present investigation explores the potential of defatted rice bran (DRB) serving as sole carbon source and partial nitrogen source to support Lactococcus lactis growth and nisin production. To retain the nutrients in DRB, especially protein fractions, thermal pretreatment followed by enzymatic hydrolysis without washing step was applied for(More)
