• flavus
  • Natural high-capacity malic acid producers like the malic acid producer Aspergillus flavus have so far been disqualified because of special growth requirements or the production of mycotoxins. (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • As A. oryzae is a very close relative or even an ecotype of A. flavus, it is likely that its high malic acid production capabilities with a generally regarded as safe (GRAS) status may be combined with already existing large-scale fermentation experience. (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • carboxylic
  • The functionality of the Aspergillus metabolism depends on its carboxylic acids, which break down into fatty acid chains that are composed of a unique set of fatty acid synthase complexes. (kenyon.edu)
  • efficiency
  • These metabolites grant A. oryzae the ability to modify themselves according to their current environment--they are able to increase or decrease their fitness to allow optimum metabolic efficiency. (kenyon.edu)
  • It was also observed that removal efficiency of Aspergillus oryzae decreases with increasing concentrations. (tsijournals.com)
  • secondary
  • Members of the Aspergillus genus are distinct from other microbes due to the fact that they utilize both a primary and secondary metabolic system. (kenyon.edu)
  • The secondary metabolism utilizes acidic compounds to suppress metabolic pathways, which allows A. oryzae to produce secondary metabolites. (kenyon.edu)
  • names
  • Other names in common use include glucose dehydrogenase (Aspergillus), glucose dehydrogenase (decarboxylating), and D-glucose:(acceptor) 1-oxidoreductase. (wikipedia.org)
  • primary
  • The primary metabolism of A. oryzae receives its energy through contact with energy sources (e.g. grains or starches). (kenyon.edu)
  • activity
  • The cells of A. oryzae 35 cultured with Tween 80 showed higher catalytic activity than the others. (ncsu.edu)
