Rapid immobilization with the one-pot purification of galactitol dehydrogenase (GatDH) and formate dehydrogenase (FDH) is achieved by using iminodiacetic acid (IDA) with chelated Co2+ modified magnetic nanoparticles as a carrier. Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) from recombinant Escherichia coli and FDH commencing Candida methylica were used as an auxiliary enzyme for the regeneration of NADH/NAD(+) with a representative synthesis of (S)-1,2-propanediol and L-tagatose starting from hydroxyacetone and galactitol. The affinity magnetic nanoparticles were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), while the purity of GatDH and FDH was assayed by SDS-PAGE analysis. The immobilized two-enzyme system, reflecting the pH dependence of its constituent enzymes, showed optimal activity at pH 7 and 8 for (S)-1,2-propanediol and L-tagatose production, respectively. The immobilized enzyme system retained up to 70% of its activity after one week of repeated use. The use of affinity magnetic nanoparticles offers the advantage of a one-pot purification of His(6)-tagged GatDH and FDH followed by the production of rare sugar and chiral diol.


Design of a core-shell type immuno-magnetic separation system and multiplex PCR for rapid detection of pathogens from food samples
Ozalp, V. Cengiz; BAYRAMOĞLU, GÜLAY; ARICA, MEHMET YAKUP; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2013-11-01)
We report an immuno-magnetic separation system developed by the immobilization of pathogen-specific antibodies on the core-shell magnetic beads. The magnetic beads were grafted with glycidylmethacrylate (GMA) using surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization (SI-ATRP). For immuno-magnetic separation (IMS) of target bacterial cells from others, antibodies for Escherichia coli and Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium cells were immobilized on the magnetic beads via glutaraldehyde coupling reacti...
Overexpression of serine alkaline protease encoding gene in Bacillus species: performance analyses
Çalık, Pınar; Ozdamar, TH (Elsevier BV, 2003-12-02)
Bacillus species carrying subC gene encoding serine alkaline protease (SAP) enzyme were developed in order to increase the yield and selectivity in the bioprocess for SAP production. For this aim, subC gene was cloned into pHV1431 Escherichia coli-Bacillus shuttle vector, and transferred into nine host Bacillus species, i.e. B. alvei, B. amyloliquefaciens, B. badius, B. cereus, B. coagulans, B. firmus, B. licheniformis, B. sphaericus and B. subtilis. The influence of the host Bacillus species on SAP product...
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...
Monovalent cations and their influence on activated sludge floc chemistry, structure, and physical characteristics
Kara, F.; Gurakan, G. C.; Sanin, Faika Dilek (Wiley, 2008-06-01)
Multivalent cations have been known to be important components of activated sludge floc structure due to their bridging ability of the negatively charged sites on the biopolymer network. Recently in batch systems it was found that excess concentration of monovalent cations led to the deterioration in settleability, dewaterability of sludges and effluent quality of the system. In this study, effect of influent monovalent cations (potassium and sodium) on activated sludge floc structure was investigated in se...
Role of the cmcH-ccaR intergenic region and ccaR overexpression in cephamycin C biosynthesis in Streptomyces clavuligerus

The effect of the CcaR regulatory protein on expression of the cephamycin C gene cluster is studied. Quantitative reverse transcription PCR (qRT-PCR) expression analysis of the cephamycin biosynthesis genes in the ccaR-disrupted strain, S. clavuligerus ccaR::aph, revealed that in the absence of CcaR, the lat and cmcI genes expression was reduced 2,200-and 1,087-fold compared with the wild type. Expression of pcbAB-pcbC-cefD-cefE-cmcJ-cmcH and blp was 225- to 359-fold lower, while expression of pcbR-pbpA-bla...
