Using long-polymerase chain reaction (Long-PCR) method, we determined the complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Phthonandria atrilineata. The complete mtDNA from P. atrilineata was 15,499 base pairs in length and contained 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 2 rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, and a control region. The P. atrilineata(More)
Supercritical carbon dioxide extraction (SC-CO(2)) of oil from desilked silkworm pupae was performed. Response surface methodology (RSM) was applied to optimize the parameters of SC-CO(2) extraction. The effects of independent variables, including pressure, temperature, CO(2) flow rate, and extraction time, on the yield of oil were investigated. The(More)
The complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Eriogyna pyretorum (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) was determined as being composed of 15,327 base pairs (bp), including 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 2 rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, and a control region. The arrangement of the PCGs is the same as that found in the other sequenced lepidopteran. The AT skewness for(More)
The effect of inorganic phosphate on cell growth, accumulation of polysaccharides together with nutrient utilization was investigated in suspension cultures of protocorm-like bodies of Dendrobium huoshanense. Thirty-day-old cells were transferred into liquid medium with the inoculum density of 100 g/L cells. The results indicate that the optimal(More)
Defatted wheat germ peptides (DWGPs) were prepared by fermentation with Bacillus Subtilis B1 and the antioxidant activities of DWGPs were investigated. The fermentation condition was optimized by response surface method (RSM) with three factors and three levels according to Box-Behnken theory. A maximal yield of DWGPs was achieved 8.69 mg/mL under optimal(More)
OBJECTIVE To obtain Maackia amurensis callus and investigate some factors influencing total isoflavonoid production in callus. METHOD Different media were used for callus induction from cotyledonary and hypocotyl explants. Total isoflavonoid content was determined by UV spectrophotometer. RESULT Medium types and hormone combinations influenced both(More)
Using rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE), the cDNA encoding eclosion hormone (EH) was cloned from the brain of Ostrinia furnacalis. The full Osf-EH cDNA is 986 bp and contains a 267 bp open reading frame encoding an 88 amino acid preprohormone, which including a hydrophobic 26 amino acid signal peptide and a 62 amino acid mature peptide. The mature(More)
Putrescine at 0.6 mM stimulated protocorm-like body growth and polysaccharide synthesis in suspension cultures of Dendrobium huoshanense. The specific growth rate of protocorm-like body increased from 0.047 to 0.056 day−1, and the maximum dry weight and polysaccharide production reached 33.2 and 2.94 g l−1, respectively, while they were 24.6 and 2.12 g l−1,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the characteristics of growth, and water-soluble polysaccharide and total alkaloid accumulation in protocom-like bodies (PLBs) of Dendrobium huoshanenese in liquid culture system. METHOD PLBs were suspended in liquid medium and growth kinetics was analyzed. Water-soluble polysaccharide and total alkaloid content in PLBs were(More)
Phosphate is an effective factor in the regulation of cell growth and accumulation of polysaccharides. The method for higher polysaccharide production has been obtained through feeding cultivation. The two-stage cultivation was proposed according to the characteristic of cell growth and the accumulation of polysaccharides in the suspension cultures of(More)
