Phanerochete chrysosporium, the white-rot fungus, (a best source for lignolytic enzymes system) was used in the biological pretreatment of rice husk for reducing sugars production. Usually reducing sugar production through biochemical process involves two steps: solid state fermentation (SSF) of fungal pretreatment for delignification, subsequently(More)
The multilineage potentiality of cord blood stem cells has been experimentally proven in a number of cell based therapies. Umbilical cord blood (UCB) derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), on prolonged exposure with Lascorbic acid have been successfully differentiated in to osteoblasts (bone forming cells) without altering the phenotype of the cells. In(More)
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are self-renewing cells with ability to differentiate into organized, functional network of cells. In recent past research in developing clinical applications for MSCs has increased significantly. MSCs exhibit multi potential proliferation, and are capable of differentiating into cartilage, bone, neuronal cells and adipocytes,(More)
The osteogenic potential of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from umbilical cord blood (UCB) on porous poly lactide-co-glycolide (PLGA) scaffolds have been reported to differentially support osteogenic differentiation based on polymer composition (80:20, 75:25 and 70:30 percent of PLA: PGA, respectively). Along with polymer composition; fused NaCl crystal(More)
Tissue engineering scaffolds require a controlled pore size and interconnected pore structures to support the host tissue growth. In the present study, three dimensional (3D) hybrid scaffolds of poly lactic acid (PLA) and poly glycolic acid (PGA) were fabricated using solvent casting/particulate leaching. In this case, partially fused NaCl particles were(More)
Pretreatment of biomass for bioethanol production makes it necessary to use large amounts of water for removing inhibitors and neutralization. In order to reduce water usage, separate batches of corncobs were hydrolyzed in 1M NaOH and 0.05 M H(2)SO(4), respectively, and the hydrolysis products were mixed to achieve a pH of 7. This approach lowered water(More)
The yeast strain (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) MTCC 3157 was selected for combinatorial biosynthesis of plant sesquiterpene amorpha-4,11-diene. Our main objective was to overproduce amorpha 4-11-diene, which is a key precursor molecule of artemisinin (antimalarial drug) produced naturally in plant Artemisia annua through mevalonate pathway. Farnesyl(More)
Mononuclear cells isolated from human umbilical cord blood were differentiated in to spindle shaped fibrous mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in DMEM with 10% fetal bovine serum. These progenitor cells were further examined for their ability to differentiate into osteoblasts by culturing them in osteogenic differentiation media (Stem Pro®). Calcium(More)
In the present study, two commonly used catalysts in chemical pretreatment, sulfuric acid and sodium hydroxide, were tested to evaluate the effect of solid-to-liquid ratio on pretreatment and enzymatic hydrolysis. Solid to liquid ratio (S/L) was influential on sugars released with an increase in the S/L ratio between 0.03 and 0.2. Enzymatic digestibility of(More)
In this case study, we designed a farnesyl pyrophosphate (FPP) biosynthetic network using hybrid functional Petri net with extension (HFPNe) which is derived from traditional Petri net theory and allows easy modeling with graphical approach of various types of entities in the networks together. Our main objective is to improve the production of FPP in(More)
