InSciTE Capstone Research Project for the 2017-2018 year. An investigation into the efficiency of two pure monosaccharide carbon sources in producing bioethanol via batch fermentation by Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Characterization of Type-2 Diacylglycerol Acyltransferases in the Green Microalga Chromochloris zofingiensisDownload
Diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT) catalyzes the last and committed step of the acyl-CoA-dependent TAG biosynthesis and thus is a key target for manipulating oil production in microalgae. The microalga Chromochloris zofingiensis can accumulate substantial amounts of triacylglycerol (TAG) and...
Effects of nutritional management on production performance and rumen fermentation in dairy cows during calving transitionDownload
Dairy cows usually experience negative energy balance during the calving transition period (3 weeks before to 3 weeks after parturition) due to the rapid increase in nutrient demands for milk production. In order to compensate for the energy deficits, diets rich in highly fermentable...
Long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase (LACS, EC 220.127.116.11) catalyzes the ATP-dependent activation of free fatty acid to form acyl-CoA, which in turn serves as the major acyl donor for various lipid metabolic pathways. Increasing the size of acyl-CoA pool by enhancing LACS activity appears to be a useful...
Substrate preferences of long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase and diacylglycerol acyltransferase contribute to enrichment of flax seed oil with a-linolenic acidDownload
Seed oil from flax (Linum usitatissimum) is enriched in a-linolenic acid (ALA; 18:3?9cis,12cis,15cis), but the biochemical processes underlying the enrichment of flax seed oil with this polyunsaturated fatty acid are not fully elucidated. Here, a potential process involving the catalytic actions...
