Valorization of Apple Pomace Via Single Cell Oil Production Using Oleaginous Yeast Rhodosporidium toruloides

© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Nature B.V.Apple pomace was used as a sole raw material for single cell oil (SCO) production by the oleaginous yeast Rhodosporidium toruloides DSM 4444. Preliminary studies with glucose medium revealed 100 mL of working volume in 500 mL Erlenmeyer flask as the most efficient in terms of lipid content. Thus, apple pomace hydrolysate was tested in six different conditions using 100 mL medium. The detoxified hydrolysate without chemical supplement (D medium) was found to be the most viable medium by 47.5 ± 2.47% lipid on dry cell basis (w/w). Apple pomace hydrolysate was also proven effective for SCO productions in bench-top fermenter (1 L working volume) under controlled temperature (25 °C), pH (5.0), and aeration (1vvm) by 40.1 ± 5.51% (w/w) lipid content. The same medium resulted in 50.9% (w/w) lipid on a dry cell basis in 30 L industrial-type bioreactor with 10 L of working volume, without exact control of temperature and pH. The results confirm that apple pomace is a prosperous raw material for SCO production in flask and fermenter scales. Graphical Abstract: [Figure not available: see fulltext.].

Predictive Design and Analysis of Drug Transport by MultiScale Computational Models Under Uncertainty
Akalın, Ali Aykut; Dedekargınoğlu, Barış; Choi, Sae Rome; Han, Bumsoo; Özçelikkale, Altuğ (2022-01-01)
© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.Computational modeling of drug delivery is becoming an indispensable tool for advancing drug development pipeline, particularly in nanomedicine where a rational design strategy is ultimately sought. While numerous in silico models have been developed that can accurately describe nanoparticle interactions with the bioenvironment within prescribed length and time scales, predictive design of these d...
Cultural values, national personality characteristics, and intelligence as correlates of corruption: A nation level analysis
Gaygısız Lajunen, Esma; Lajunen, Timo (2022-05-01)
© 2022 The Author(s)Research on national corruption has primarily focused on economics and politics, whereas cultural factors and especially national personality characteristics have attracted less attention. In the present study, the influence of Hofstede's cultural dimensions, Schwartz's values, Eysenckian personality factors (EPQ), and national intelligent quotient (IQ) on Corruption Perception Index (CPI) scores were studied by using aggregated data from 64 countries and ecological design, i.e., correla...
Real-time measurement of laser beam characteristics for a waterjet-guided laser machine
Subasi, Levent; Gökler, Mustafa İlhan; Yaman, Ulaş (2022-01-01)
© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer-Verlag London Ltd., part of Springer Nature.Waterjet-guided laser machining is a novel process used for precision cutting and drilling of various materials and geometries. There are many noise factors in the process affecting the laser beam characteristics, namely the effective cutting length and laser power in the waterjet. Although these variables are mainly set by the laser and waterjet parameters, uncontrollable factors result in variations. Pre...
Tensionless strings and Killing(-Yano) tensors
Lindström, Ulf; Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür (2022-06-10)
© 2022 The Author(s)We construct invariants for bosonic and spinning tensionless (null) strings in backgrounds that carry Killing tensors or Killing-Yano tensors of mixed type. This is facilitated by the close relation of these strings to point particles. We apply the construction to the Minkowski and to the Kerr-Newman backgrounds.
Phyto-mediated photocatalysis: a critical review of in-depth base to reactive radical generation for erythromycin degradation
Ashraf, Aniqa; Liu, Guijian; Yousaf, Balal; Arif, Muhammad; Ahmed, Rafay; Rashid, Audil; Riaz, Luqman; Rashid, Muhammad Saqib (2022-05-01)
© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature.Erythromycin (ERY), designated as a risk-prioritized macrolide antibiotic on the 2015 European Union watch list, is the third most commonly used antibiotic, most likely due to its ability to inhibit the protein. ERY has revealed record-high aquatic concentrations threatening the entire ecosystem and hence demands priority remedial measures. The inefficiency of various conventional ERY degradation methodol...
