  • biofuels
  • The usage of nutrient harvests such as maize and sugar cane to bring forth biofuels is progressively being discouraged due to the current worldwide rise in nutrient monetary values. (signifiance.com)
  • metabolic
  • If we better understand the assembly line in the metabolic mill that processes all the different sugars, we will be in a better place to implement bioengineering strategies. (phys.org)
  • These bacteria have extremely reduced genomes and are thought to have limited metabolic flexibility, even though they are highly successful persistent parasites in a diverse number of species. (asm.org)
  • Using flux variability analysis, the model reveals key metabolic constraints related to redox homeostasis in these bacteria. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The presented strategy can be generally used to identify priority sorted amplification and deletion targets for metabolic engineering purposes under various conditions and thus displays a useful strategy to be incorporated into efficient strain and bioprocess optimization. (springer.com)
  • genes
  • Specifically, genes for cellulosomal enzymes and components were highly expressed on α-cellulose, while xylanases and glucosidases were up-regulated on 5 carbon sugars with respect to cellobiose. (biomedcentral.com)
  • subsequently
  • Belisle et al, Science 276: 1420-1422 (1997), teaches that M. tuberculosis expresses and secretes three closely related mycolyl transferases that catalyze the transfer of mycolic acid from one trehalose 6-monomycolate molecule to another, resulting in the formation of free trehalsose and trehalose 6,6'-dimycolate, which is subsequently incorporated into the cell wall.

  • fermentation
  • The vast majority of antibiotics in our repertoire were discovered in the following three decades by systematic empiric screening of fermentation products or chemicals for growth inhibitors of bacteria ( Silver, 2011 ). (frontiersin.org)
  • bacterial
  • Aristilde used an emerging biochemical approach, called metabolomics, to track different sugar carbon atoms inside the bacterial cells and learn why the cell factory does not efficiently convert all sugar carbons into biofuel. (phys.org)
  • We detected the presence of bacterial and yeast species with a recurrence of the bacterium Stenotrophomonas rhizophila and yeast Sporobolomyces roseus . (springer.com)
  • organic
  • These bacteria are important in the natural conversion of organic carbons in soils and they are exploited for industrial biofuel production," Aristilde said. (phys.org)
  • efficient
  • Right now, though, this bacterium is not very efficient at processing complex wastes to biofuel production ," said Ludmilla Aristilde, assistant professor of biological and environmental engineering. (phys.org)
  • capable
  • Johnsen and Schonheit 2004 ), other haloarchaea like H. salinarum are not capable of sugar degradation (Rawal et al. (springer.com)
  • production
  • Using nonedible plant materials for biofuel production is important to sustainable energy options, and processing these materials involves metabolizing the plant's sugars. (phys.org)
  • IMPORTANCE Mycoplasmas are pathogenic bacteria that cause serious chronic infections in production animals, resulting in considerable losses worldwide, as well as causing disease in humans. (asm.org)
