High hydrostatic pressure-assisted extraction of lipids from Lipomyces starkeyi biomass

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) as a novel approach for yeast cell disruption and lipid extraction from Lipomyces starkeyi DSM 70295 grown in glucose medium (40 g/L and C/N:55/1) at initial pH of 5.0, 25 degrees C, and 130 rpm for 8 days. HHP extraction conditions including pressure, time, and temperature were optimized by response surface methodology. The high speed homogenizer-assisted extraction (HSH) was also used for comparison. The biomass subjected to HHP was examined under scanning electron microscopy and light microscope. A maximal lipid yield of 45.8 +/- 2.1% in dry cell basis (w/w) was achieved at 200 MPa, 40 degrees C, and 15 min, while a minimum yield of 15.2 +/- 0.9% was observed at 300 MPa, 40 degrees C, and 10 min (p < 0.05). The lipid yield decreased with increasing pressure. It was demonstrated that low pressure (200 MPa) collapsed the cells, while high pressure (400 MPa) created protrusions on the cell wall and cell fragments spread in the environment. This study favors HHP as a promising method for Lipomyces oil extraction. Practical Application Single-cell oils are considered future alternatives to plant-based oils as food additives and dietary supplements. Oleaginous microorganisms accumulate oils in their cell plasma, which makes extraction essential. One of the main obstacles with existing methods is the utilization of strong acids to destroy cell walls. This study aims to demonstrate high hydrostatic pressure as a rapid method for lipid extraction from oleaginous yeast Lipomyces starkeyi.


High hydrostatic pressure assisted extraction of pectin from sugar beet pulp
Kaya, Burcu; Okur, İlhami; Alpas, Hami; Oztop, Mecit Halil (2021-05-01)
This study aimed to investigate the effect of high hydrostatic pressure assisted extraction (HHPE) (250, 350 and 450 MPa at 40 degrees C for 5 min with/without acid addition) of pectin from sugar beet pulp and compare its properties with pectin obtained from conventional extraction (CE). Degree of esterification (DE), galacturonic acid (Gal-A) content, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) relaxometry experiments were performed on the obtained pectin powder. HHP...
High-Pressure-Assisted Extraction of Phenolic Compounds from Olive Leaves: optimization and Comparison with Conventional Extraction
Okur, İlhami; Namlı, Serap; Öztop, Halil Mecit; Alpas, Hami (2023-01-20)
The scope of the study was to optimize high-pressure-assisted extraction (HPAE) conditions for the extraction of phenolic compounds from olive leaves and to compare the optimum HPAE conditions with conventional extraction (CE) (at 50 °C for 30 min). In this regard, different treatment pressure levels (300-500 MPa), time (5-15 min), and solid-to-solvent ratios (0.1-0.3 w/v) were used to optimize the total phenolic content (TPC) and oleuropein content by using the Box-Behnken design. According to the results,...
High hydrostatic pressure treatment and storage of carrot and tomato juices: Antioxidant activity and microbial safety
DEDE, Saner; Alpas, Hami; Bayındırlı, Alev (2007-04-15)
The application of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) (250 MPa, 35 degrees C for 15 min) and thermal treatment (80 degrees C for 1 min) reduced the microbial load of carrot and tomato juices to undetectable levels. Different combinations of HHP did not cause a significant change in the ascorbic acid content of either juice (P > 0.05). Both heat treatments (60 degrees C for 5-15 min and 80 degrees C for 1 min) resulted in a significant loss (P < 0.05) in the free-radical scavenging activity as compared to untre...
Fed-batch methanol feeding strategy for recombinant protein production by Pichia pastoris in the presence of co-substrate sorbitol
Celik, Eda; Çalık, Pınar; Oliver, Stephen G. (2009-09-01)
Batch-wise sorbitol addition as a co-substrate at the induction phase of methanol fed-batch fermentation by Pichia pastoris (Mut(+)) was proposed as a beneficial recombinant protein production strategy and the metabolic responses to methanol feeding rate in the presence of sorbitol was systematically investigated. Adding sorbitol batch-wise to the medium provided the following advantages over growth on methanol alone: (a) eliminating the long lag-phase for the cells and reaching 'high cell density productio...
High hydrostatic pressure induced inactivation kinetics of e. coli o157:h7 and s. aureus in carrot juice and analysis of cell volume change
Pilavtepe, Mutlu; Alpas, Hami; Department of Food Engineering (2007)
The main objective of this study was to determine the pressure induced inactivation mechanism of pressure-resistant Escherichia coli O157:H7 933 and Staphylococcus aureus 485 in a low acid food. Firstly, inactivation curves of pathogens were obtained at 200 to 400 MPa at 40ºC in peptone water and carrot juice. First-order and Weibull models were fitted and Weibull model described the inactivation curves of both pathogens more accurately than first-order model, revealing that food systems could exhibit eithe...
