Effect of essential inorganic metals on primary thermal degradation of lignocellulosic biomass.
This study employed thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and analytical Py-GC/MS in order to examine the catalytic effect of main inorganic metals (K, Mg and Ca) on the thermal degradation and theExpand

Structural changes in lignin during organosolv pretreatment of Liriodendron tulipifera and the effect on enzymatic hydrolysis
Abstract Although organosolv pretreatment removed substantial amounts of lignin and xylan, the yield of glucan which is a major sugar source for fermentation to ethanol is more than 90% in mostExpand

C2B polylysine motif of synaptotagmin facilitates a Ca2+-independent stage of synaptic vesicle priming in vivo.
Synaptotagmin I, a synaptic vesicle protein required for efficient synaptic transmission, contains a highly conserved polylysine motif necessary for function. Using Drosophila, we examined in whichExpand

Degradation of bisphenol A by white rot fungi, Stereum hirsutum and Heterobasidium insulare, and reduction of its estrogenic activity.
Two lignin-degrading basidiomycetes, Stereum hirsutum and Heterobasidium insulare, were used to degrade bisphenol A (BPA) in culture, and the estrogenic activity of the degradation products wasExpand

Biodegradation of dibutylphthalate by white rot fungi and evaluation on its estrogenic activity
The biodegradation and estrogenic activity of dibutylphthalate (DBP) were characterized in the white rot fungi, Phanerochaete chrysosporium, Trametes versicolor and Daldinia concentrica. The DBPExpand
