Manothermosonication (MTS) treatments, the simultaneous application of heat and ultrasound under moderate pressure, of milk during 12 s at 20 kHz ultrasound amplitude, 2 kg pressure, and 40 degrees C allowed elaboration of yoghurts with rheological properties superior to those of control yoghurts elaborated with untreated milk. Measurements performed on(More)
Medium-chain-length polyhydroxyalkanoates (mcl-PHAs) are biobased and biodegradable alternatives to petrol-derived polymers, whose break-through has been prevented by high production cost. Therefore we investigated whether wastes from the food industry (nine types of fruit pomace including apricots, cherries and grapes, and waste frying oil) could replace(More)
The biological properties of a protein critically depend on its conformation, which can vary as a result of changes in conditions such as pH or following the addition of various substances. Being able to reliably assess the quality of protein structures under various conditions is therefore of crucial importance. Infrared (IR) spectroscopy of the Amide I(More)
Phenolic compounds such as catechol represent a particular type of micropollutant whose high stability prevents rapid decay and metabolization in the environment. We successfully cloned a catechol 2,3-dioxygenase (C2,3O) from Pseudomonas putida mt-2 and expressed it in Escherichia coli BER2566. The biomass isolated from shake-flask fermentations was used to(More)
A micro-reactor coupled to a microfluidic system and an online UV/VIS spectrometer is described. The enzymatic reaction studied is the hydrolysis of the N-benzoyl-L-tyrosine ethyl ester (BTEE) to N-benzoyl-L-tyrosine (BT) and ethanol, catalyzed by chymotrypsin. The production is online monitored with UV spectroscopy at 256 nm. Three different immobilization(More)
