In this study, cphC-I and cphB, encoding a putative two-component flavin-diffusible monooxygenase (TC-FDM) complex, were cloned from Arthrobacter chlorophenolicus A6. The corresponding enzymes were overexpressed to assess the feasibility of their utilization for the oxidative decomposition of 4-chlorophenol (4-CP). Soluble CphC-I was produced at a high level (∼50%), and subsequently purified. Since CphB was expressed in an insoluble form, a flavin reductase, Fre, cloned from Escherichia coli was used as an alternative reductase...

Clostridium tyrobutyricum can utilize glucose and xylose as carbon source for butyric acid production. However, xylose catabolism is inhibited by glucose, hampering butyric acid production from lignocellulosic biomass hydrolysates containing both glucose and xylose. In this study, an engineered strain of C. tyrobutyricum Ct-pTBA overexpressing heterologous xylose catabolism genes (xylT, xylA, and xylB) was investigated for co-utilizing glucose and xylose present in hydrolysates of plant biomass, including soybean hull, corn fiber, wheat straw, rice straw, and sugarcane bagasse...

In this study, effects of porous carrier's size (polyurethane-based) on microbial characteristics were systematically investigated in addition to nitrogen removal performance in six microaerobic bioreactors. Among different sized carriers (50, 30, 20, 15,10, 5mm), 15mm carrier showed highest nitrogen removal (98%) due to optimal micro-environments created for aerobic nitrifiers in outer layer (0-7mm), nitrifiers and denitrifiers in middle layer (7-10mm) and anaerobic denitrifiers in inner layer (10-15mm). Candidatus brocadia, a dominant anammox bacteria, was solely concentrated close to centroid (0-70μm) and strongly co-aggregated with other bacterial communities in the middle layer of the carrier...

This study evaluates the efficiency of four novel up-flow reactors for ex situ biogas upgrading converting externally provided CO2 and H2 to CH4, via hydrogenotrophic methanogenesis. The gases were injected through stainless steel diffusers combined with alumina ceramic sponge or through alumina ceramic membranes. Pore size, input gas loading and gas recirculation flow rate were modulated to optimize gas-liquid mass transfer, and thus methanation efficiency. Results showed that larger pore size diffusion devices achieved the best kinetics and output-gas quality converting all the injected H2 and CO2, up to 3...
