Effects of oxygen transfer (OT) on benzaldehyde lyase (BAL) production by recombinant E. coli BL21 (DE3) pLySs were investigated at an air‐inlet rate of QO/VR = 0.5 vvm and agitation rates of N = 250, 500, 625, and 750/min; and at constant dissolved oxygen (DO) concentrations of CDO = 0.04 and 0.08 mol/m3, on a glucose based defined medium. The highest cell concentration (CX = 3.0 kg/m3) and volumetric BAL activity (A = 1095 U/cm3) were obtained at CDO = 0.08 mol/m3. KLa increased with agitation rate and decreased with CX. The highest KLa (= 0.039 s(1) was obtained at QO/VR = 0.5 vvm and N = 750/min. Damköhler number increased with decrease in agitation rate and increase in CX, while the effectiveness factor was inversely proportional to CX. The specific growth rate and the yield coefficients decreased with cultivation time and higher values were obtained in higher agitation rates. Oxygen consumption and glucose consumption for maintenance were changed proportionally and inverse proportionally with the BAL production, respectively.

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...
Regulatory effects of alanine-group amino acids on serine alkaline protease production by recombinant Bacillus licheniformis
Çalık, Pınar; Ozdamar, TH (Wiley, 2003-04-01)
Influences of the concentration and addition time of alanine-group amino acids, i.e. alanine, leucine and valine, on serine alkaline protease (SAP) synthesis were investigated by Bacillus licheniformis (DSM 1969) carrying pHV1431::subC in a defined medium to identify the amino acids creating intracellular reaction-rate limitation in SAP production. While the precursors of alanine-group amino acids, pyruvate and alanine, did not affect SAP production considerably within the range 0-15 mM, the addition of leu...
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...
Production of neutral and alkaline extracellular proteases by the thermophilic fungus, Scytalidium thermophilum, grown on microcrystalline cellulose
Ifrij, IH; Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2002-07-01)
Extracellular proteases produced by Scytalidium thermophilum, grown on microcrystalline cellulose, were most active at pH 6.5-8 and 37-45 degreesC when incubated for 60 min. Highest protease activity was at day 3 where endoglucanase activity was low. Protease activity measurements with and without the protease inhibitors, p-chloromercuribenzoate, PMSF, antipain, E-64, EDTA and pepstatin A, suggest production of thiol-containing serine protease and serine proteases. Endoglucanase and Avicel-adsorbable endogl...
Identification of population dynamics in sulfate-reducing consortia on exposure to sulfate
İçgen, Bülent (Elsevier BV, 2006-12-01)
The microbial population structure and function of a mixed culture of sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) maintained in anaerobic continuous bioreactors were tracked before and after a major perturbation, which involved the addition of sulfate to the influent of a bioreactor when operated at steady state at 35 degrees C, pH 7.8 and a 2.5 day residence time with feed stream containing 10 and 15 kg m(-3) sulfate as terminal electron acceptor and 19.6 and 29.4 kg m(-3) 4 ethanol as carbon source and electron donor...
