The kinetics of growth and lactic acid production by mixed cultures of Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus were modeled with a set of modified logistic and Luedeking-Piret equations. The specific growth rates and the inhibitory effect of each individual species on the mixed culture growth were found to be determined by the media composition. The kinetic analysis clearly showed that the contribution of each microbial species to the mixed culture growth process changed drastically when the substrate concentration was about 15%. This optimum initial substrate concentration was in agreement with the results of the previous studies and the optimum found by trial and error procedure in commercial yogurt production.

Effect of pH, flow rate and concentration on the sorption of Pb and Cd on montmorillonite: II. Modelling
Altin, O; Ozbelge, OH; Doğu, Timur (Wiley, 1999-12-01)
A mathematical model is proposed and compared with experimental data for the migration of heavy metal ions (Pb and Cd) during the flow of aqueous solutions through calcium-saturated montmorillonite packing. The main system parameters are pH, flow rate and concentration. It is assumed that the Liquid phase in the porous montmorillonite can be divided into two regions, mobile and immobile; that adsorption and ion exchange on the clay surface are instantaneous, and that adsorption isotherms are Linear througho...
KINETICS OF WINE SPOILAGE BY ACETIC-ACID BACTERIA
KOSEBALABAN, F; OZILGEN, M (Wiley, 1992-01-01)
Acid production in wines inoculated with acetic acid bacteria from vinegar was studied at 15-degrees-C, 20-degrees-C, 25-degrees-C and 30-degrees-C and simulated with kinetic models. Results indicated that major wine spoilage did not occur during the growth of the microorganisms, but during their extended presence at high concentrations during the stationary and death phases. Acetophilic species were observed to resist death, which is in agreement with the mechanism suggested by Kittelmann et al.9 for the d...
Effect of pH, flow rate and concentration on the sorption of Pb and Cd on montmorillonite: I. Experimental
Altin, O; Ozbelge, OH; Doğu, Timur (Wiley, 1999-12-01)
Continuous column adsorption of lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd) was studied using pH adjustment and calcium-saturated montmorillonite in a short stainless steel column. Changing either pH or flow rate, while keeping inlet concentration of the ions constant, led to considerable changes in effluent concentrations and breakthrough curves (BTCs). At low pH values (2-4), H+ ions competed strongly with lead and cadmium ions; at intermediate pH (4-6), ionic size played the major role in adsorption and ion exchange and ...
Metabolic reaction network of Pichia pastoris with glycosylation reactions: Flux analysis for erythropoietin production
Eskitoros, Melda S.; Ata, Ozge; Çalık, Pınar (Wiley, 2014-11-01)
BACKGROUND: Biochemical reaction network of Pichia pastoris was improved by including N-glycosylation pathway reactions to determine the intracellular reaction rates for glycosylated protein production.
Granulation of a mixture of suspended anaerobic and aerobic cultures under alternating anaerobic/microaerobic/aerobic conditions: a preliminary study
Bayramoğlu, Tuba Hande (Wiley, 2005-07-01)
This paper focuses on a new granulation study area where a mixture of suspended anaerobic and aerobic cultures was used as seed. Mixed suspended anaerobic and aerobic cultures exposed to alternating anaerobic/microaerobic/aerobic conditions developed granulates up to 2.5 mm in size. The granules developed displayed both oxygen uptake (3.83 - 8.75 mg dissolved oxygen g(-1) volatile suspended solids h(-1)) and methanogenic activities (7.5 cm(3) CH4 d(-1)) comparable to those of aerobic and anaerobic control c...
