Immense interest has been devoted to the production of bulk chemicals from lignocellulose biomass. Diluted sulfuric acid treatment is currently one of the main pretreatment methods. However, the low total sugar concentration obtained via such pretreatment limits industrial fermentation systems that use lignocellulosic hydrolysate. Sugarcane bagasse(More)
In this study, corn steep liquor powder (CSL) was used as nitrogen source to replace the relatively costly yeast extract typically used for the production of succinic acid with Actinobacillus succinogenes NJ113. Moreover, when heme was added to the fermentation medium and the culture was agitated at a low speed, a maximum succinic acid concentration of 37.9(More)
In this study, cellobiose, a reducing disaccharide was used to produce succinic acid by Actinobacillus succinogenes NJ113. A final succinic acid concentration of 30.3g/l with a yield of 67.8% was achieved from an initial cellobiose concentration of 50 g/l via batch fermentation in anaerobic bottles. The cellobiose uptake mechanism was investigated and the(More)
Whether the second generation of parent/offspring type familial nonmedullary thyroid carcinoma (FNMTC) is more aggressive and has worse prognosis than their first generation counterpart is controversial. To evaluate the clinicopathologic features and prognosis of the second generation via a comparison between the two groups, We searched three databases(More)
BACKGROUND The effectiveness of prophylactic central neck dissection (pCND) following total thyroidectomy (TT) in patients with clinical node-negative (cN0) papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is still controversial. The aim of this meta-analysis is to evaluate the outcome of pCND and to provide quantitative evidence. METHOD A detailed literature search of(More)
