Polysaccharide production by a reduced pigmentation mutant of the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans
A reduced pigmentation mutant was isolated from Aureobasidium pullulans ATCC 42023 by chemical mutagenesis and was subsequently characterized. The pigment melanin was present not only in A. pullulansExpand

  • 9 August 2011
The ability of Aspergillus strains to utilize thin stillage to produce malic acid was compared. The highest malic acid was produced by Aspergillusniger ATCC 9142 at 17 g l−1. Biomass production fromExpand
A pullulan‐degrading enzyme activity of Aureobasidium pullulans
A pullulan‐degrading enzyme activity was detected in the culture medium after growth of the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans on corn syrup as a carbon source. The product of pullulan catabolism by thisExpand

ABSTRACT The effect of nitrogen source concentration on the production of the polysaccharide curdlan by the bacterium Agrobacterium sp. ATCC 31749 from hydrolysates of prairie cordgrass was examined.Expand
Curdlan production by Agrobacterium sp. ATCC 31749 on an ethanol fermentation coproduct
The production of the polysaccharide curdlan from the ethanol processing coproduct condensed corn distillers solubles by the bacterium Agrobacterium sp. ATCC 31749 was investigated. It was found thatExpand
Purification and some properties of cytosine deaminase from Salmonella typhimurium.
Cytosine deaminase (EC 3.5.4.1) from Salmonella typhimurium has been purified 419-fold to apparent homogeneity. SDS polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis indicated that the final cytosine deaminaseExpand

  • 1 December 2000
The production of the exopolysaccharide pullulan using entrapped cells of the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans ATCC 201253 was investigated. Fungal cells entrapped in agarose or carrageenan wereExpand
Xylitol production by Candida species grown on a grass hydrolysate
Xylitol was produced by selected species of the yeast Candida after growth on a medium containing a hydrolysate of the North American perennial prairie grass big bluestem. The grass was hydrolysed byExpand
Polysaccharide production by a reduced pigmentation mutant of Aureobasidium pullulans NYS‐1
Aims: To isolate a reduced pigmentation mutant of Aureobasidium pullulans NYS‐1 and characterize its cellular pigmentation plus its polysaccharide and biomass production relative to carbon source.
Rhodospirillum rubrum: utilization of condensed corn solubles for poly‐(3‐hydroxybutyrate‐co‐3‐hydroxyvalerate) production
Aims:  This study sought to develop a less expensive medium for growth of the polyhydroxyalkanoate‐producing bacterium Rhodospirillum rubrum from the ethanol production coproduct, condensed cornExpand
