Bacterial contaminants of fuel ethanol production
Although populations varied over time, individual facilities tended to exhibit characteristic bacterial profiles, suggesting the occurrence of persistent endemic infections. Expand

The last few years have seen a resurgence in interest in pullulan, particularly for higher-value health and pharmaceutical applications, and few of these potential uses have been widely adopted. Expand
Structural characterization of novel extracellular liamocins (mannitol oils) produced by Aureobasidium pullulans strain NRRL 50380.
The structural characterization of four liamocins, A1, A2, B1, and B2, produced by A. pullulans strain NRRL 50380 are reported, and three of the exophilins are new, previously unreported structures. Expand
Modeling bacterial contamination of fuel ethanol fermentation
A simple model to simulate bacterial contamination and infection was developed and may find application in developing new antibacterial agents and management practices for use in controlling contamination in the fuel ethanol industry. Expand
Butyric acid from anaerobic fermentation of lignocellulosic biomass hydrolysates by Clostridium tyrobutyricum strain RPT-4213.
A novel Clostridium tyrobutyricum strain RPT-4213 was found producing butyrate under strict anaerobic conditions and the titer and productivity could be improved through process engineering. Expand
Complete Genome Sequence of Lactobacillus buchneri NRRL B-30929, a Novel Strain from a Commercial Ethanol Plant
The genome sequence of NRRL B-30929 will provide insight into the unique properties of this lactic acid bacterium, an attractive candidate for bioconversion of biomass substrates to various bioproducts. Expand
Isolation of astaxanthin-overproducing mutants of Phaffia rhodozyma
We isolated mutants of Phaffia rhodozyma strain NRRL Y-17269 that overproduced astaxanthin when grown on corn-based fuel ethanol stillage (thin stillage, TS, or fuel ethanol byproducts). Ten mlExpand
Heavy oils produced by Aureobasidium pullulans
From a survey of more than 50 diverse strains of Aureobasidium pullulans, 21 produced extracellular heavy oils, and MALDI-TOF MS spectra suggested that A.pullulans strains produce a family of related oil structures. Expand
Relationships among enzyme activities and virulence parameters in Beauveria bassiana infections of Galleria mellonella and Trichoplusia ni
Levels of specific cuticle-degrading enzymes showed relationships with specific virulence parameters and the conventional parameter of LT50 was the product of two strain-specific parameters that may be described as "onset of mortality and subsequent "rate" of mortality. Expand
Lactobacillus buchneri strain NRRL B-30929 converts a concentrated mixture of xylose and glucose into ethanol and other products
Car carbohydrate utilization and Phenotype Microarrays™ analyses indicated that the strain is able to metabolize a broad spectrum of carbon sources including various monosaccharides (C5 and C6), disaccharide and oligosacCharides, with better rates under anaerobic conditions. Expand
