Grape cane waste was investigated as a potential source of high-value phytochemicals with medicinal and anti-phytopathogenic applications. Extraction yields of trans-resveratrol and trans-epsilon-viniferin from Vitis vinifera cv. Pinot Noir grape cane were 3.45 +/- 0.04 and 1.30 +/- 0.07 mg g(-1) dw, respectively. The analyte extraction efficiencies were investigated using protic and aprotic solvents. Yields varied 22-fold over the range of solvent systems investigated, demonstrating the importance in solvent polarity and hydrogen bonding capability for efficient extractions. The current study suggests that these compounds can be quantitatively extracted from grape cane residue using low-cost, environmentally benign, and non-toxic aqueous alcoholic solvent systems such as ethanol:water mixtures. With current commercial values of trans-resveratrol and trans-epsilon-viniferin between US$ 2000 and US$ 3000 per kg, established stilbene yields from cane waste could represent an agricultural coproduct valued at US$ 2000-US$ 3000 per hectare of production. At present levels of worldwide wine grape production, the extraction of trans-resvertrol and trans-epsilon-viniferin from grape cane waste may reach a global economic value of >$30 billion.

Enzymatic extraction of activated sludge extracellular polymers and implications on bioflocculation
Sesay, Ml; Özcengiz, Gülay; Sanin, Faika Dilek (Elsevier BV, 2006-04-01)
This study examines enzyme hydrolysis, a mild, effective, but a rarely used method of extracellular polymer extraction, in removing polymers from mixed culture activated sludge flocs. Two carbohydrate specific enzymes (a-amylase and cellulase) and a protein specific enzyme (proteinase) are used during the study. First, the kinetic aspect is investigated, then enzyme dose optimization is carried out on laboratory grown activated sludge samples cultured at solids retention times (SRT) of 4 and 20 days. A more...
Controlled release of aldicarb from carboxymethyl cellulose microspheres: in vitro and field applications
Kok, FN; Arica, MY; Gencer, O; Abak, Kazım; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (1999-12-01)
Aldicarb is a carbamate pesticide that is widely used throughout the world in the protection Of crops (eg cotton, nuts, potatoes, onion, tobacco, sugar beet and sugar cane). In Turkey, especially in the Cukurova region, it is used for the control of the cotton white fly (Bemisia tabaci) which attacks cotton plants cultivated in this region. Aldicarb contamination in surface and ground water is a serious problem in several countries, partly due to its high water solubility. It is also highly toxic to mammals...
Beet molasses based exponential feeding strategy for thermostable glucose isomerase production by recombinant Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3)
Angardi, Vahideh; Çalık, Pınar (Wiley, 2013-05-01)
BACKGROUND: The effects of pretreated beet molasses based feeding strategies on thermostable glucose isomerase (GI) production by recombinant Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3) pLysS were investigated. RESULTS: The thermostable GI encoding gene of Thermus thermophilus (xylA) was recombined with pRSETA vector, and the pRSETA::xylA obtained was transferred into E.coli BL21 (DE3) pLysS and used for GI production. The highest soluble GI activity was obtained at t = 30 h, as A = 16 400 U L1 (20.6 U mg1 protein) under m...
Investigation of the effect of culture type on biological hydrogen production from sugar industry wastes
Ozkan, Leyla; Bayramoğlu, Tuba Hande; DEMİRER, GÖKSEL NİYAZİ (Elsevier BV, 2010-05-01)
The bio-hydrogen generation potential of sugar industry wastes was investigated. In the first part of the study, acidogenic anaerobic culture was enriched from the mixed anaerobic culture (MAC) through acidification of glucose. In the second part of the study, glucose acclimated acidogenic seed was used, along with the indigenous microorganisms. MAC, 2-bromoethanesulfonate treated MAC and heat treated MAC. Two different COD levels (4.5 and 30 g/L COD) were investigated for each culture type. Reactors with i...
Optimisation of antioxidant activity of grape cane extracts using response surface methodology
Karacabey, Erkan; Mazza, Giuseppe (2010-03-01)
Solid-liquid extraction and response surface methodology were used to optimise conditions for the antioxidant activity of grape cane extracts. The independent processing variables were ethanol concentration, temperature and solvent to solid ratio. Ethanol concentration and temperature significantly affected antioxidant activity measured by the Trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity (TEAC) assay and the oxygen radical absorbance capacity using fluorescein (ORAC(FL)) method (p 0.05). Antioxidant activity of ...
