Bacillus sp. BC-001 was first reported as a potent thermotolerant and homofermentative strain for an industrial-scale L-lactate production. In a flask culture, this isolate fermented both glucose and sucrose to lactate with high yield (0.96 and 0.87 g/g) and productivity (2.8 and 2.6 g/L h), respectively. The higher lactate production performance was obtained in the simultaneous saccharification and fermentation of liquefied starch (150.1 g/L final titer, 0.98 g/g yield, 3.2 g/L h productivity) and the fed-batch glucose fermentation (139...

Aspergillus terreus was reported as the promising fungal strain for itaconic acid; however, the commercial production suffers from the low yield. Low production yield was claimed as the result of completing the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle towards biomass synthesis while under limiting phosphate and nitrogen; TCA cycle was somewhat shunted and consequently, the metabolite fluxes move towards itaconic acid production route. By regulating enzymes in TCA cycle, it is believed that itaconic acid production can be improved...

Engineering nanoscale interfaces is a requisite for harnessing electrical and thermal transports within nanostructured materials, especially those destined for thermoelectric applications requiring an unusual combination of low thermal conductivity and electrical resistivity. Nanocomposites open up possibilities in this area, but are still bound to a very narrow range of materials. Here, we report a new approach combining the sol-gel process toward hybrid materials with spark plasma sintering (SPS) to yield functional nanocomposites based on substoichiometric titanium oxides Ti(n)O(2n-1), so-called Magnéli phases...

BACKGROUND: The external laryngeal nerve (ELN) is not routinely identified during thyroid surgery despite clear benefits from doing so. One reason is its anatomical variations, which differ from papers to papers. There were also very few studies of ELN in Thais, especially its relation to inferior constrictor muscle and tip of superior pole of the thyroid gland, which serve as important landmarks when identifying the ELN intraoperatively. OBJECTIVE: To describe the course of ELN and its relations to the inferior constrictor muscle, superior thyroid artery (STA), and tip of superior pole of the thyroid gland in Thais in order to serve as a guide for identification and preservation of the nerve...

Rhizopus oryzae was immobilized on a cotton matrix in a static bed bioreactor. Compared with free cells in a stirred tank bioreactor, immobilized R. oryzae in this bioreactor gave higher lactic acid production but lower ethanol production. The highest lactic acid production rate (2.09 g/L h) with the final concentration of 37.83 g/L from 70 g/L glucose was achieved when operating the bioreactor at 700 rpm and 0.5 vvm air. To better understand the relationship between shear effects (agitation and aeration) and R...

After some general introduction remarks on Indian philosophy, this essay deals with the structure of mind in the Yogacara Buddhist idealist school. Mind can be conceived as having two 'parts': the receptacle consciousness, constituted by the vasanas, or 'marks' left by any individual experience, which 'remains' in the mind in an unconscious state; and the function consciousness, constituted by these same vasanas transforming themselves into conscious ideas and representations, which are either of a cognizing ego or of congnized objects and beings and similar to the experiences that gave rise to them...
