Isolation of a chitosan degrading fungus, Penicillium spinulosum, and chitosanase production by the isolate
Ak, O; Bakir, U; Güray, Nülüfer Tülün (1996-12-18)
A chitosan degrading fungus was isolated from chitosan and then identified as Penicillium spinulosum by the International Mycological Institute, England. The isolate was used for the production of chitosanase in a salts medium with either chitosan or Rhizopus cell walls as the sole carbon source. Chitosanase was produced under all the conditions tested, however better yields were obtained by using Rhizopus cell walls.

Hydrocarbon contamination can be as a result of various sources such as; accidents during fuel transportation by trucks and ships; leaking of oil from underground storage tanks, extraction and processing oil. Interests about the possibility of water and soil contamination by oil and oil byproducts gains importance since they are one of the major pollutants in the environment. Petroleum hydrocarbon polluted areas can be treated through physical, chemical and biological methods. During cleaning up, microbial ...
Isolation and immunological characterization of theta class glutathione-s-transferase gstt2-2 from bovine liver
İşgör, Sultan Belgin; Çoruh, Nursen; Department of Biochemistry (2004)
The glutathione-S-transferases (GSTs) (EC. are enzymes that participate in cellular detoxification of endogenous as well as foreign electrophilic compounds, function in the cellular detoxification systems and are evolved to protect cells against reactive oxygen metabolites by conjugating the reactive molecules to the nucleophile scavenging tripeptide glutathione (GSH, ?-glu-cys-gly). The GSTs are found in all eukaryotes and prokaryotic systems, in the cytoplasm, on the microsomes, and in the mitoch...
