The Use of Response Surface Methodology in Optimization of Lactic Acid Production: Focus on Medium Supplementation, Temperature and pH Control
(Food Technology and Biotechnology, 2010-04-01) [Editorial]
Two response surface methodologies involving central composite designs have been successfully applied to evaluate the effect of cheese whey, corn steep liquor, ammonium sulphate, temperature and pH control on lactic acid ...
Improvement of L(+)-lactic acid production from cassava wastewater by Lactobacillus rhamnosus B 103
(Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2010-08-30) [Artigo]
BACKGROUND: L(+)-Lactic acid is used in the pharmaceutical, textile and food industries as well as in the synthesis of biodegradable plastics. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different medium ...
d(-)-Lactic Acid Production by Leuconostoc mesenteroides B512 Using Different Carbon and Nitrogen Sources
(Applied Biochemistry and Biotechnology, 2011-08-01) [Artigo]
Sugar concentration from sugarcane juice and yeast autolysate increased lactic acid production more than the other agro-industrial substrates tested. The concentrations of these two components were further optimized using ...
Effect of C/N Ratio and Physicochemical Conditions on the production of Rhamnolipids by Pseudomonas Aeruginosa LBI
(Research Journal of Biotechnology, 2010-08-01) [Artigo]
Waste utilization for biosurfactant production is an important approach contributing to the reduction of waste treatment costs, while increasing the economic value of residues and reducing biosurfactant production costs: ...
Rhamnolipids and PHAs: Recent reports on Pseudomonas-derived molecules of increasing industrial interest
(Process Biochemistry, 2011-03-01) [Artigo]
Rhamnolipids (RL) and polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) from Pseudomonas species show a wide range of potential industrial applications. Rhamnolipids are surface-active molecules that are usually produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa ...
Structural characterization of a new dextran with a low degree of branching produced by Leuconostoc mesenteroides FT045B dextransucrase
(Carbohydrate Polymers, 2012-05-16) [Artigo]
This paper offers the physical and chemical characterization of a new dextran produced by Leuconostoc mesenteroides FT045B. The chemical structure was determined by Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy and 1H Nuclear ...
L(+) Lactic acid production by new Lactobacillus rhamnosus B 103
(Journal of Microbial and Biochemical Technology, 2010-05-01) [Artigo]
L(+) Lactic acid fermentation was studied by Lactobacillus rhamnosus sp. under the effects of pH control and a lowcost nutritional medium (sugarcane juice and corn steep liquor-CSL). Central composite design (CCD) was ...
Rhamnolipids as biosurfactants from renewable resources: Concepts for next-generation rhamnolipid production
(Process Biochemistry, 2012-08-01) [Artigo]
Several microorganisms are known to produce a wide variety of surface-active substances, which are referred to as biosurfactants. Interesting examples for biosurfactants are rhamnolipids, glycolipids mainly known from ...
Structure, properties and applications of rhamnolipids produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa L2-1 from cassava wastewater
(Process Biochemistry, 2010-09-01) [Artigo]
The properties and applications of rhamnolipid surfactants produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa L2-1 from cassava wastewater added with waste cooking oil (CWO) as low-cost substrate, were investigated and compared with the ...
