Haloarchaea is an important group of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA)-accumulating organisms. However, few promising haloarchaeal species for economical and efficient PHA production have been reported. Here, we first discovered that Halogranum amylolyticum TNN58 could efficiently accumulate poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) (PHBV) with a high(More)
Cultivation in glycerol instead of sugars inhibits 2,3-butanediol (2,3-BD) production by Bacillus amyloliquefaciens. In this study, we report that B. amyloliquefaciens readily produces 2,3-BD from biodiesel-derived glycerol in the presence of beet molasses as a co-substrate. Unexpectedly, the molasses stimulated 2,3-BD production and simultaneously reduced(More)
Steroid medication is used extensively in clinical applications and comprises a large and vital part of the pharmaceutical industry. However, the difficulty of separating 4-androstene-3,17-dione (AD) from 1,4-androstadiene-3,17-dione (ADD) restricts the application of the microbial transformation of phytosterols in the industry. A novel atmospheric and room(More)
The cyclodextrins (CDs) complexation technique was performed for the enhancement of hydroxylation yield from dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) by Colletotrichum lini ST-1. Using DHEA/methyl-β-cyclodextrin (M-β-CD) or DHEA/hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD) inclusion complexes as substrate (10g/L), the hydroxylation yields were increased by 14.98% and 20.54%(More)
Hydroxylation of DHEA to 7α,15α-diOH-DHEA was catalyzed by NADPH-dependent cytochrome P450 monooxygenase from Colletotrichum lini. By adding coenzyme precursor nicotinic acid, the NADPH/NADP ratio was significantly increased, and the 7α,15α-diOH-DHEA molar conversion was enhanced from 37.37% to 50.85%. To improve the availability of intracellular NADPH, a(More)
