Annual Plant Reviews, Plant Polysaccharides: Biosynthesis and Bioengineering (Volume 41)

Plant Polysaccharides, a very good new quantity in Wiley-Blackwell’s winning Annual Plant studies sequence, covers the polysaccharides and proteins that shape the basic structure of the plant mobile wall, and the genes that encode the mobile equipment that synthesizes them. the amount makes a speciality of the evolution of the various households of genes whose items are required to make a selected form of polysaccharide, bringing consciousness to the categorical biochemical houses of the proteins to the extent of types of sugar linkages they make.

Characterization of Liquids, Nano- and Microparticulates, and Porous Bodies Using Ultrasound

Keywords outline the scope of this e-book: 'ultrasound' and 'colloids'. traditionally, there was little genuine conversation among practitioners in those fields. even though there's a huge physique of literature dedicated to ultrasound phenomenon in colloids, there's little attractiveness that such phenomena should be of genuine value for either the advance and purposes of colloid technological know-how.

2007; Takahashi et al. 2011). Several types of molecules can act as hydrophobic carbon source: oils, fats, fatty acids, their corresponding esters, alkanes, or waste streams containing one of them. 1; Davila et al. 1994). However, the presence of residual hydrophobic carbon source in the final sophorolipids is a bigger issue for fatty acid esters due to their corrosive and irritating properties. Free fatty acids of a specific length can be used as well, although there are some constraints such as a melting temperature above room temperature for the saturated fatty acids and effects on the cell’s electron balance.

The molecules are Sophorolipids 25 produced at certain limiting conditions in excess of a carbon source and, therefore, it is suggested that they act as an external carbon sink. In other fungal organisms producing glycolipids, for example, MELS and cellobiose lipids, the expression of the clustered genes is controlled by a transcription factor that is activated in response to a changing environment. For example, in Ustilago maydis, the production of biosurfactants occurs after activation upon nitrogen limitation of a transcription factor present in the cluster (Teichmann et al.

If, however, an additional copy of the lactone esterase gene controlled by a constitutive promoter is introduced, more lactonic sophorolipids are present in the blend (WO2013092421). Furthermore, a S. bombicola strain knocked out in beta-oxidation can be applied for the increased production of medium-chain sophorolipids starting from unconventional substrates (Van Bogaert et al. 2009) or the production of 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid, a compound of interest in medical studies (Van Bogaert et al.
