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...
Characterization of a Type‐2 Diacylglycerol Acyltransferase from Haematococcus pluvialis Reveals Possible Allostery of the Recombinant EnzymeDownload
Haematococcus pluvialis is a green microalga used in the algal biotechnology industry that can accumulate considerable amounts of storage triacylglycerol (TAG) and astaxanthin, which is a high‐value carotenoid with strong antioxidant activity, under stress conditions. Diacylglycerol...
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 188.8.131.52) 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...
Mammalian and Saccharomyces cerevisiae ER-mitochondria contact site regulation by small Rab GTPases and ER folding assistantsDownload
Membrane-bound organelles allow eukaryotes to compartmentalize components and processes in a highly organized manner. Organelles can communicate with one another through membrane contact sites (MCS): membrane appositions 10-50nm apart. MCS were not widely accepted as bona fide sites of organelle...
Mechanisms of inactivation of Candida humilis and Saccharomyces cerevisiae by pulsed electric fieldsDownload
Aims This study aimed to determine how electric field strength, pulse width and shape, and specific energy input relate to the effect of pulsed electric fields (PEF) on viability and membrane permeabilization in Candida humilis and Saccharomyces cerevisiae suspended in potassium phosphate...
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...
