BACKGROUND The efficiency and cost of current lignocellulosic enzymes still limit the large-scale production of cellulosic ethanol in industry. Residual lignin after pretreatment severely depresses the activity of polysaccharide hydrolases and the h ydrolysis of holocellulose. If we include in hydrolase mixture construction the ligninase involved in lignin(More)
The aim of this study was to learn the interactions among the endophytic bacteria, the plant growth, the foliar spray of fulvic acid, and the accumulation of steviol glycosides in the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana. Metagenomic DNA was extracted from the Stevia leaves at different growth stages with or without the fulvic acid treatment; and the diversity of(More)
Airborne bacteria were measured when a dust storm passed Beijing in spring 2012 with a focus on cell concentration, viability and TSA- and R2A-cultured strain composition. The concentration varied at an order of 107cells/m3 with dust loading (demonstrated with PM10) and they had a very close correlation (RT2=0.91, p<0.01). At the time of highest PM10 of(More)
Light hydrocarbons accumulated in subsurface soil by long-term microseepage could favor the anomalous growth of indigenous hydrocarbon-oxidizing microorganisms, which could be crucial indicators of underlying petroleum reservoirs. Here, Illumina MiSeq sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene was conducted to determine the bacterial community structures in soil(More)
Stevioside is a non-caloric, natural, high-intensity sweetener. However, the bitter aftertaste of stevioside restricts its utilization for human consumption and limits its application in the food industry. In this study, a high efficiency enzymatic modification system was investigated to improve stevioside taste quality. A cyclodextrin glucanotransferase(More)
