Sedimentology and stratigraphy of türbeyanı marl sequences and inpiri limestones (late barremian-albian) : implications for possible source and reservoir rocks (nw Turkey)

Nabiyev, Anar
Sedimentology, cyclostratigraphy and sequence stratigraphy of the Türbeyanı Marls (Albian) and the İnpiri Limestone (Upper Barremian-Albian) members of Ulus Formation (İnciğez, Bartın, Amasra) were interpreted in this study. In the Türbeyanı Marls total of five different facies were defined. Marl and limestone facies are the most abundant in the succession. The depositional environment of the succession was defined as an outer shelf area. Within the pelagic marls 39 smaller order and 9 higher order cycles were recognized. These cycles correspond to the parasequences and parasequence sets of sequence stratigraphy, respectively. In the measured section only one type-3 sequence boundary was identified. In the İnpiri Limestones great variety of limestone facies are represented. Bioclastic, peloidal, intraclastic wackestone-packstone-grainstone facies are the most abundant. Moreover, occurrence of lime mudstone, fenestral limestone, ooid packstone-grainstone, and sandstone facies are present as well. In the measured section of the İnpiri Limestones 25 fifth order and 6 fourth order cycles were defined. These cycles correspond to the parasequence sets and systems tracts of the sequence stratigraphy, respectively. Total of three transgressive and three highstand systems tract were defined. Only one type 2 sequence boundary was identified in the measured section, the rest of them are interrupted by covers. This study revealed that the Türbeyanı Marls and the İnpiri Limestones are not economically valuable as petroleum source and reservoir rocks, respectively. The total organic carbon (TOC) values of marl facies of the Türbeyanı marls are very low, and the pore spaces observed in the İnpiri Limestone are cement filled making it unsuitable reservoir rock. Keywords: sedimentology, cyclostratigraphy, sequence stratigraphy, Türbeyanı Marls, İnpiri Limestones, Albian, Upper Barremian, Amasra, Bartın.


Metabolic Flux Analysis for Recombinant Protein Production by Pichia pastoris Using Dual Carbon Sources: Effects of Methanol Feeding Rate
Celik, Eda; Çalık, Pınar; Oliver, Stephen G. (Wiley, 2010-02-01)
The intracellular metabolic fluxes through the central carbon pathways in the bioprocess for recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) production by Pichia pastoris (Mut(+)) were calculated. to investigate the metabolic effects of dual carbon sources (methanol/sorbitol) and the methanol feed rate, and to obtain a deeper understanding the regulatory circuitry of P. pastoris, using the established stoichiometry-based model containing 102 metabolites and 141 reaction fluxes. Four fed-batch operations with (MS-...
Molecular cloning and co-expression of Thermoplasma volcanium proteasome subunit genes
Kocabıyık, Semra; Zwickl, Peter; Ozdogan, Seda (Elsevier BV, 2010-10-01)
In this study we describe, the construction of a co-expression vector allowing simultaneous production of Thermoplasma volcanium 20S proteasome alpha- and beta-subunits in Escherichia coli. This heterologous expression system provided high level production of fully active 205 proteasome that can be purified easily by using a conventional two-step chromatographic technique. The recombinant proteasome was purified to homogeneity 12-fold with a specific activity of 26.5 U/mg. Sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylam...

Survival kinetics of lactic acid starter cultures were modeled considering the microorganism and external medium interfacial area as the critical factors determining the resistance of the microorganisms to freeze-drying. Surviving fraction of the microorganisms increased with the increasing biomass concentration during freeze-drying, and this is attributed to the mutual shielding effect of the microorganisms against the severe conditions of the external medium. Survival of the microorganisms over the storag...
Kinetic analyses of the effects of temperature and light intensity on growth, hydrogenm production and organic acid utilization by rhodobacter capsulatus
Sevinç, Pelin; Gündüz, Ufuk; Department of Biotechnology (2010)
Effects of temperature and light intensity on photofermentative hydrogen production by Rhodobacter capsulatus DSM1710 by use of acetic and lactic acids as substrates were studied. Experiments were conducted at 20, 30 and 38oC incubator temperatures under light intensities in the 1500 – 7000 lux range. pH of the medium and quantity of hydrogen forming together with quantity of biomass, and concentrations of acetic, lactic, formic, butyric and propionic acids in the medium were determined periodically. Growth...
Cyclic palaeokarst surfaces in Aptian peritidal carbonate successions (Taurides, southwest Turkey): internal structure and response to mid-Aptian sea-level fall
Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer; Altıner, Demir (Elsevier BV, 2006-12-01)
The sedimentology and cyclic stratigraphy of palaeokarst structures in Aptian peritidal carbonate successions are interpreted using field and laboratory microfacies analyses of closely spaced samples from measured outcrop stratigraphic sections in southwest Turkey. Cycles displaying shallowing-upward metre-scale cyclicity are generally composed of lime mudstones/wackestones/packestones at the bottom and stromatolites or lime mudstones with charophytes and ostracods at the top. Subaerial exposure structures ...
