Four cellulose-degrading enzymes were identified in a solid-state culture of Aspergillus oryzae. The three major enzymes were purified and named Cel-1, Cel-2, and Cel-3, respectively. The molecular weights were determined to be 62, 120, and 34 kDa, respectively. The optimum temperature of Cel-3 activity was higher than that of the other enzymes. An acidic(More)
The Inactivation kinetics of alpha-glucosidase, glucoamylase, alpha-amylase, and acid carboxypeptidase in fresh sake using a continuous flow system for high-pressure carbonation were investigated. In addition, the effects of ethanol and sugar concentrations on inactivation of the enzymes in high-pressure carbonated sake were investigated. Among the enzymes(More)
Previously, we showed that lowering the growth temperature increased the level of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in the phosphatidylcholine (PtdCho) of Caenorhabditis elegans. In this study, we investigated the molecular species composition of PtdCho of C. elegans, with an emphasis on EPA-containing species. C. elegans contained a substantial amount of(More)
