d-Lactic acid, is an important organic acid produced from agro-industrial wastes by Sporolactobacillus inulinus YBS1-5 was investigated to reduce the raw material cost of fermentation. The YBS1-5 strain could produce d-lactic acid by using cottonseed meal as the sole nitrogen source. For efficient utilization, the cottonseed meal was enzymatically(More)
To improve the production of d-lactic acid, atmospheric and room temperature plasma (ARTP) was used to generate mutations in Sporolactobacillus sp. Y2-8. An efficient mutant YBS1-5 was rapidly isolated by implanting ARTP twice with a 100 W radio-frequency power input, 10 standard liters per minute of the helium flow, and a 2 mm treatment distance.(More)
Sporolactobacillus inulinus, a homofermentative lactic acid bacterium, is a species capable of efficient industrial d-lactic acid production from glucose. Glucose phosphorylation is the key step of glucose metabolism, and fine-tuned expression of which can improve d-lactic acid production. During growth on high-concentration glucose, a fast induction of(More)
The impact of lignocellulose-derived inhibitors on the cell growth and D-lactic production of Sporolactobacillus inulinus YBS1-5 was investigated. At high concentrations, both furans and phenolics, such as furfural, HMF, syringaldehyde and vanillin, affected cell growth and D-lactic acid production and syringaldehyde exhibited the highest. Further(More)
Sporolactobacillus inulinus has attracted scientific and commercial interest due to its high efficiency in d-lactic acid production. Pyruvate kinase (PYK) is one of the key regulatory points in glycolysis, and well-activated PYK can improve d-lactic acid production. A novel Mn2+/Mg2+-dependent PYK from S. inulinus was expressed in Escherichia coli and(More)
An efficient enzymatic synthesis of endomorphin-2 (EM-2) was achieved using organic solvent stable proteases in nonaqeous media, based on thermodynamic control and an in situ product removal methodology. The high stability of biocatalysts in organic solvents enabled the aleatoric modulation of the nonaqueous reaction media to shift thermodynamic equilibrium(More)
D-glucosaminic acid was produced efficiently from glucosamine by oxidative fermentation using a newly isolated strain, Pseudomonas putida GNA5. After optimization of the fermentation process, 51.5 g L(-1) D-glucosaminic acid was produced from an initial concentration of 60 g L(-1) D-glucosamine-HCl after 72 h of oxidative fermentation, which corresponded to(More)
