This review focuses on the construction of a global, comprehensive understanding of Bacillus subtilis through microarray studies. The microarray studies in B. subtilis were analysed based on the theme of the work, by mentioning the growth media, bioreactor operation conditions, RNA isolation method, number of data points analysed in exponential or stationary phases, compared genotypes, induction and repression ratios, investigated gene(s) and their positive and/or negative influences. Based on the theme and scope of the studies, the articles were reviewed under seven thematic sections, i.e., effects of gene deletion(s) or overexpression, effects of overexression of heterologous genes, comparison of global gene expression between aerobic and anaerobic respiration, effects of temperature change, effects of transported molecules, effects of limitations and stress conditions, and other microarray studies in B. subtilis.

A MEMS-based spiral channel dielectrophoretic chromatography system for cytometry applications
Yilmaz, Gurkan; Ciftlik, Ata Tuna; Külah, Haluk (Wiley, 2011-02-01)
In this paper design, fabrication, and evaluation of an easy-to-use and low cost dielectrophoretic quantizer are introduced. The device works with standard tools in a biomedical laboratory: a stereo microscope with CCD camera and a voltage supply. A novel spiral microchannel geometry together with the coaxial electrode configuration is established. The device works with a droplet of sample, eliminating microfluidic connections, and external syringes. The proposed geometry decreases the footprint, therefore ...
Nutritional and cultural parameters influencing antidipteran delta endotoxin production
ÖZKAN, MELEK; Dilek, Filiz Bengü; Yetiş, Ülkü; Özcengiz, Gülay (Elsevier BV, 2003-01-01)
In this study, various nutritional and cultural parameters influencing diptera-specific delta-endotoxin synthesis by Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis HD500 were investigated. Of various inorganic nitrogen sources, the highest yields of Cry11Aa and Cry4Ba proteins were obtained on (NH4)(2)HPO4. Among carbon sources, inulin, dextrin, maltose, lactose, sucrose, whey and glycerol were all stimulatory, while glucose, starch and molasses were suppressive. High concentrations of inorganic phosphate (50 to...
Determination and metabolic engineering of rate limiting reactions in aromatic amino acid pathway in Bacillus subtilis for L-phenylaianine production
Guzide, Calik; Yasemin, Demirci; Pinar, Calik; Ozdamar, Tuncer H. (2007-09-01)
Rate limiting reactions in the aromatic-group amino acid pathway (AAAP) in Bacillus subtilis for l-phenylalanine (Phe) production were determined as reported elsewhere (Özçelik-Şenver et al., 2004). The biochemical reactions in the AAAP start with the reaction using phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) and erythrose 4-phosphate (E4P) synthesised in the glycolysis pathway and the PPP, respectively, leading to the formation of Phe via chorismate by branching at prephenate. The branch-point metabolites E4P supplied in vi...
Selective Quantification of Viable Escherichia coli Bacteria in Biosolids by Quantitative PCR with Propidium Monoazide Modification
Taskin, Bilgin; Gözen, Ayşe Gül; Duran, Metin (American Society for Microbiology, 2011-07-01)
Quantitative differentiation of live cells in biosolids samples, without the use of culturing-based approaches, is highly critical from a public health risk perspective, as recent studies have shown significant regrowth and reactivation of indicator organisms. Persistence of DNA in the environment after cell death in the range of days to weeks limits the application of DNA-based approaches as a measure of live cell density. Using selective nucleic acid intercalating dyes like ethidium monoazide (EMA) and pr...
Effects of pulse feeding of beet molasses on recombinant benzaldehyde lyase production by Escherichia coli BL21(DE3)
Çalık, Pınar (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-11-01)
The effect of fed-batch operation (FBO) strategy was investigated using pretreated-beet molasses, containing galactose that induces the lac promoter, on benzaldehyde lyase (BAL) production by recombinant Escherichia coli BL21(DE3)pLySs. After batch cultivation with 30 g l(-1) pretreated-beet molasses consisting of 7.5 g l(-1) glucose and 7.5 g l(-1) fructose, three FBO strategies were applied at dissolved oxygen (=40%) cascade to air-flow rate. In FBO1 when air-flow rate decreased considerably, feed was giv...
