  • Modulating the pH Activity Profiles of Phenylalanine Ammonia Lyase from
           Anabaena variabilis by Modification of Center-Near Surface Residues
    • Authors: Fan Zhang; Nan Huang; Li Zhou; Wenjing Cui; Zhongmei Liu; Longbao Zhu; Yi Liu; Zhemin Zhou
      Pages: 699 - 711
      Abstract: Phenylalanine ammonia lyase from Anabaena variabilis (Av-PAL) is a candidate for the treatment of phenylketonuria (PKU). However, Av-PAL shows its optimal pH at 8.5 and maintains only 70% of its highest activity when pH decreases to 7.3–7.4 (the condition of human plasma). The objective of the study was to shift its optimal pH by mutating surface amino acid residues which interact with the general base Tyr78. Based on the crystal structure and the online program GETAREA, we selected five sites: Asn69, Glu72, Glu75, Asn89, and Val90. Removing negative charges or introducing positive charges near the general base Tyr78 by mutation, the pH optima were successfully shifted to more acidic range. Especially, the pH optima of E75A, E75L, and E75Q were shifted to 7.5 with 35, 30, and 24% higher specific activities than that of the wild, respectively. Half-lives of E75L and E75Q at 70 °C prolonged to 190 and 180 min from 130 min of the wild, respectively. In addition, the higher resistance to a low pH of 3.5 and protease made E75L a candidate for oral medicine of PKU. This work would improve the therapeutic prospect of Av-PAL and provide guidance in modulating optimal pH of enzymes.

  • Immobilization of Candida antarctic Lipase B on Functionalized Ionic
           Liquid Modified MWNTs
    • Authors: Xiaomei Wan; Susu Tang; Xinran Xiang; He Huang; Yi Hu
      Pages: 807 - 819
      Abstract: Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) were modified by imidazole-based ionic liquids with different alkyl groups. The modified support samples were characterized by scanning transmission electron microscopy, Raman spectra, thermogravimetric analyses, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The samples were used to immobilize Candida antarctic lipase (CALB) and the influence of alkyl chain length of ionic liquids on enzymatic properties was investigated by the hydrolysis reaction of triacetin. The results revealed that functionalized ionic liquids modification did not destroy the structure of MWNTs. Compared with the immobilized CALB on MWNTs, the immobilized CALB on novel carriers all exhibited higher activity, thermal stability, and reusability. Especially, the activity of MWNTs-IL (8C)-CALB improved 15.23-folds than MWNTs-CALB, meanwhile, after incubation at 70 °C for 20 min, residual enzyme activity of MWNTs-IL (8C)-CALB was 46% of the initial activity, while MWNTs-CALB already lost all activity. Besides, MWNTs-IL (8C)-CALB retained 64.5% of its initial activity after 4 cycles, while MWNTs-CALB retained only 2.12%. Graphical ᅟ

  • Biodegradation of BTEX Aromatics by a Haloduric Microbial Consortium
           Enriched from a Sediment of Bohai Sea, China
    • Authors: Yue Deng; Fenglong Yang; Chunping Deng; Jinshui Yang; Jing Jia; Hongli Yuan
      Pages: 893 - 905
      Abstract: This study focused on a haloduric BTEX-degrading microbial consortium EC20 enriched from Bohai Sea sediment. EC20 degraded 87% of BTEX at 435 mg L−1 initial concentration (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes in equal proportions) in the presence of 3.4% NaCl. 16S rRNA gene-based PCR-DGGE profiles revealed that the dominant bacteria in EC20 were Proteobacteria, Actinobacteria, Bacteroidetes, and Firmicutes at the phylum level, and Pseudomonas, Mesorhizobium, Achromobacter, Stenotrophomonas, and Halomonas at the genus level. PCR detection of genes coding the key enzymes which participated in BTEX degradation pathways showed that the enriched consortium EC20 contained TOL pathway and TOD pathway to initiate biodegradation of BTEX.

      Abstract: Efficient isolation of lignocellulolytic bacteria is essential for the utilization of lignocellulosic biomass. In this study, bacteria with cellulolytic, xylanolytic, and lignolytic activities were isolated from environmental sites such as mountain, wetland, and mudflat using isolation media containing the combination of lignocellulose components (cellulose, xylan, and lignin). Eighty-nine isolates from the isolation media were characterized by analyzing taxonomic ranks and cellulolytic, xylanolytic, and lignolytic activities. Most of the cellulolytic bacteria showed multienzymatic activities including xylanolytic activity. The isolation media without lignin were efficient in isolating bacteria exhibiting multienzymatic activities even including lignolytic activity, whereas a lignin-containing medium was effective to isolate bacteria exhibiting lignolytic activity only. Multienzymatic activities were mainly observed in Bacillus and Streptomyces, while Burkholderia was the most abundant genus with lignolytic activity only. This study provides insight into isolation medium for efficient isolation of lignocellulose-degrading microorganisms.

      Abstract: Lignin is a versatile plant metabolite challenging high-end industrial applications of several plant products including jute. Application of developmental mutant in regulation of lignification in jute may open up door for much awaited jute based diversified products. In the present study, a novel dark jute (Corchorus olitorius L.) mutant with low lignin (7.23%) in phloem fibre being compared to wild-type JRO 204 (13.7%) was identified and characterised. Unique morphological features including undulated stem, petiole and leaf vein distinguished the mutant in gamma ray irradiated mutant population. Histological and biochemical analysis revealed reduced lignification of phloem fibre cells of the plant. RT-PCR analysis demonstrated temporal transcriptional regulation of CCoAMT1 gene in the mutant. The mutant was found an extremely useful model to study phloem fibre developmental biology in the crop besides acting as a donor genetic stock for low lignin containing jute fibre in dark jute improvement programme.

      Abstract: Colchicinoids and their derivatives are of great importance in pharmaceutical applications, and colchicine is usually used as the first choice for the treatment of gout. To expand the structural diversities and clinical application of colchicinoids, many attempts have been established for the derivatives with better activity or less toxicity. Herein, in this paper, we report a direct microbial transformation of colchicine into 2-O-demethyl-colchicine (M1) and 3-O-demethl-colchicine (M2) by Streptomyces griseus ATCC 13273. It is noteworthy that when DMF was used as co-solvent, the yield of M1 and M2 could reach up to 51 and 31%, respectively. All the structures of the metabolites were elucidated unambiguously by ESI-MS, 1H–NMR, 13C–NMR, and 2D–NMR spectroscopy.

  • Improvement of the Stabilization and Activity of Protocatechuate
           3,4-Dioxygenase Isolated from Rhizobium sp. LMB-1 and Immobilized on Fe 3
           O 4 Nanoparticles
    • Authors: Li-Shuang Zhang; Yue Fang; Ying Zhou; Bang-Ce Ye
      Pages: 1035 - 1048
      Abstract: Protocatechuate 3,4-dioxygenase (P34O), which is isolated from Rhizobium sp. LMB-1, catalyzes the ring cleavage step in the metabolism of aromatic compounds, and has great potential for environmental bioremediation. However, its structure is very sensitive to different environmental factors, which weaken its activity. Immobilization of the enzyme can improve its stability, allow reusability, and reduce operation costs. In this work, the relative molecular mass of the native P34O enzyme was determined to be 500 kDa by gel filtration chromatography on Sephadex G-200, and the enzyme was immobilized onto (3-aminopropyl) triethoxysilane-modified Fe3O4 nanoparticles (NPs) by the glutaraldehyde method. The optimum pH of immobilized and free P34O was unaffected, but the optimum temperature of immobilized P34O increased from 60 to 70 °C, and the thermal stability of immobilized P34O was better than that of the free enzyme and showed higher enzymatic activity at 60 and 70 °C. In addition, with the exception of Fe3+, most metal ions and organic chemicals could not improve the activity of free and immobilized P34O. The kinetic parameters of the immobilized P34O were higher than those of the free enzyme, and immobilized P34O on Fe3O4 NPs could be reused ten times without a remarkable decrease in enzymatic activity.

  • Drug Design for ALK-Positive NSCLC: an Integrated Pharmacophore-Based 3D
           QSAR and Virtual Screening Strategy
    • Authors: Nivya James; V. Shanthi; K. Ramanathan
      Abstract: The increasing death rates related to anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive lung cancer culminated in a significant interest in the discovery of novel inhibitors for ALK. In the present research work, pharmacophore-based 3D QSAR modeling and virtual screening strategy have been carried out to address these issues. Initially, a five-point pharmacophore model was developed using the biological data of 50 compounds which includes an FDA-approved ALK inhibitor, crizotinib. Using the generated pharmacophore, a 3D QSAR model was developed and used as a query to screen the DrugBank database. The model was found to be significant (R 2 = 0.9696) with an excellent predictive accuracy (Q 2 = 0.7652) as confirmed through validation of the both training and test molecule activities. Further, Glide docking score and absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion properties were used to filter the screened candidates. Overall, our analysis results in three hits namely TR1, FAL, ZYW with higher docking scores, and good pharmaceutically relevant properties with increased CNS involvement. It is worth mentioning that FAL and ZYW were found to possess scaffolds with specific activity against ALK protein. We presume that the results obtained from this computational study are of immense importance in the rational designing of novel and more potent ALK inhibitors.

  • Selection of an Effective Indicator for Rapid Detection of Microorganisms
           Producing γ-Polyglutamic Acid and Its Biosynthesis Under Submerged
           Fermentation Conditions Using Bacillus methylotrophicus
    • Authors: Poonam Mishra Chatterjee; Silpi Datta; Deepika Pandey Tiwari; Ritu Raval; Ashok Kumar Dubey
      Abstract: γ-Polyglutamic acid (γ-PGA) is a biosynthetic outcome of glutamic acid polymerization by microbes. In the current study, we have isolated Bacillus methylotrophicus on solid differential media containing methylene blue. This is the first report mentioning the use of methylene blue to distinguish the monomeric and polymeric form of glutamic acid in the liquid medium using UV-Vis spectrophotometer. Our method can simplify the analytical process of γ-PGA confirmation using the aforementioned studies. This screening protocol is sensitive to the detection of γ-PGA quantities as low as 3 μg/mL; thus, the potent producers can be effectively screened. Furthermore, we have carried out process optimization of the present strain for γ-PGA production wherein we could obtain 1.4-fold improvement in the yield with respect to utilization of carbon source and 2.6-fold increase with respect to nitrogen source under submerged fermentation at a shake flask level. We have shown an increase in γ-PGA titer from 1.5 to 36 g/L using mannitol, monosodium glutamate, peptone, and tween 20.

  • Evaluation of Lighting Systems, Carbon Sources, and Bacteria Cultures on
           Photofermentative Hydrogen Production
    • Authors: Chengcheng Hu; Sing-Ying Choy; Apostolos Giannis
      Abstract: Fluorescent and incandescent lighting systems were applied for batch photofermentative hydrogen production by four purple non-sulfur photosynthetic bacteria (PNSB). The hydrogen production efficiency of Rhodopseudomonas palustris, Rhodobacter sphaeroides, Rhodobacter capsulatus, and Rhodospirillum rubrum was evaluated using different carbon sources (acetate, butyrate, lactate, and malate). Incandescent light was found to be more effective for bacteria cell growth and hydrogen production. It was observed that PNSB followed substrate selection criteria for hydrogen production. Only R. palustris was able to produce hydrogen using most carbon sources. Cell density was almost constant, but cell growth rate and hydrogen production were significantly varied under the different lighting systems. The kinetics study suggested that initial substrate concentration had a positive correlation with lag phase duration. Among the PNSB, R. palustris grew faster and had higher hydrogen yields of 1.58, 4.92, and 2.57 mol H2/mol using acetate, butyrate, and lactate, respectively. In the integrative approach with dark fermentation effluents rich in organic acids, R. palustris should be enriched in the phototrophic microbial consortium of the continuous hydrogen production system.

  • Enzymatic Activation of the Emerging Drug Resveratrol
    • Authors: Rina D. Koyani; Rafael Vazquez-Duhalt
      Abstract: The plant originated stilbene “resveratrol” (3,4′,5-trans-trihydroxystilbene) is well known for its diverse health benefits including anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-oxidant properties. Besides a significant amount of reports on different aspects of its application as prodrug in the last 50 years, still, a strategy leading to the production of the active drug is missing. The aim of this work was to evaluate the enzymatic activation of prodrug resveratrol to the effective drug piceatannol, without engaging expensive cofactors. Five different heme proteins were analyzed for the transformation of resveratrol. Kinetic parameters of resveratrol transformation and analysis of the transformed products were conducted through HPLC and GC-MS. Effect of pH and organic solvent on the transformation process had also been evaluated. Among all tested heme proteins, only a variant of cytochrome P450BM3 from Bacillus megaterium (CYPBM3F87A) was found suitable for piceatannol production. The most suitable pH for the reaction conditions was 8.5, while organic solvents did not show any effect on transformation. For resveratrol transformation, the turnover rate (k cat) was 21.7 (± 0.6) min−1, the affinity constant (K M) showed a value of 55.7 (± 16.7) μM for a catalytic efficiency (k cat/K M) of 389 min−1 mM−1. GC-MS analysis showed that the only product from resveratrol transformation by cytochrome P450BM3 is the biologically active piceatannol. The enzymatic transformation of resveratrol, an emerging compound with medical interest, to active product piceatannol by a variant of cytochrome P450BM3 in the absence of expensive NADPH cofactor is demonstrated. This enzymatic process is economically attractive and can be scaled up to cover the increasing medical demand for piceatannol.

  • Meta-analysis of Microbial Fuel Cells Using Waste Substrates
    • Authors: F. Ryan Dowdy; Ryan Kawakita; Matthew Lange; Christopher W. Simmons
      Abstract: Microbial fuel cell experimentation using waste streams is an increasingly popular field of study. One obstacle to comparing studies has been the lack of consistent conventions for reporting results such that meta-analysis can be used for large groups of experiments. Here, 134 unique microbial fuel cell experiments using waste substrates were compiled for analysis. Findings include that coulombic efficiency correlates positively with volumetric power density (p < 0.001), negatively with working volume (p < 0.05), and positively with percentage removal of chemical oxygen demand (p < 0.005). Power density in mW/m2 correlates positively with chemical oxygen demand loading (p < 0.005), and positively with maximum open-circuit voltage (p < 0.05). Finally, single-chamber versus double-chamber reactor configurations differ significantly in maximum open-circuit voltage (p < 0.005). Multiple linear regression to predict either power density or maximum open-circuit voltage produced no significant models due to the amount of multicollinearity between predictor variables. Results indicate that statistically relevant conclusions can be drawn from large microbial fuel cell datasets. Recommendations for future consistency in reporting results following a MIAMFCE convention (Minimum Information About a Microbial Fuel Cell Experiment) are included.

  • Enhanced Bioactivity of the Anti-LOX-1 scFv Engineered by Multimerization
           Strategy
    • Authors: Wei Hu; Qiuhong Xie; Ling Liu; Hongyu Xiang
      Abstract: Single-chain variable fragment (scFv) antibodies as therapeutic agents have the potential to reduce the production cost and immunogenicity relative to monoclonal antibodies, but their monovalency and lack of a fragment crystallizable region can lead to reduced function. Multimerization is one strategy for recovering the function; however, their application is limited by the production of multimeric proteins. In our previous study, an anti-lectin-like oxidized low-density lipoprotein receptor-1 (LOX-1) scFv showed potential use in diagnosis and therapy of atherosclerotic diseases, but is limited by its inherent low antigen-binding activity. In this study, to improve the efficacy of the anti-LOX-1 scFv, we constructed the anti-LOX-1 scFv multimers by modifying the linker length between the variable domains of the scFv or by fusing the scFv with self-merization domains and expressed these scFv multimers in Brevibacillus choshinensis hosts. After optimization, all of the scFv multimers obtained efficient secretion expression. Compared with the scFv monomer, the multimers that are successfully fractionated displayed increased neutralization activity and showed elevated antigen-binding avidity, especially the tetramer, which improved the antigen avidity by two orders of magnitude. Moreover, the scFv dimer and the tetramer both displayed better stability and longer half-life in serum, which can be attractive candidates for the next-generation anti-LOX-1 therapeutic antibody.

  • Optimization and Verification of Droplet Digital PCR Even-Specific Methods
           for the Quantification of GM Maize DAS1507 and NK603
    • Authors: Katarzyna Grelewska-Nowotko; Magdalena Żurawska-Zajfert; Ewelina Żmijewska; Sławomir Sowa
      Abstract: In recent years, digital polymerase chain reaction (dPCR), a new molecular biology technique, has been gaining in popularity. Among many other applications, this technique can also be used for the detection and quantification of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food and feed. It might replace the currently widely used real-time PCR method (qPCR), by overcoming problems related to the PCR inhibition and the requirement of certified reference materials to be used as a calibrant. In theory, validated qPCR methods can be easily transferred to the dPCR platform. However, optimization of the PCR conditions might be necessary. In this study, we report the transfer of two validated qPCR methods for quantification of maize DAS1507 and NK603 events to the droplet dPCR (ddPCR) platform. After some optimization, both methods have been verified according to the guidance of the European Network of GMO Laboratories (ENGL) on analytical method verification (ENGL working group on “Method Verification.” (2011) Verification of Analytical Methods for GMO Testing When Implementing Interlaboratory Validated Methods). Digital PCR methods performed equally or better than the qPCR methods. Optimized ddPCR methods confirm their suitability for GMO determination in food and feed.

  • Bioprocessing of Biodiesel Industry Effluent by Immobilized Bacteria to
           Produce Value-Added Products
    • Authors: Jyotsana Prakash; Rahul Kumar Gupta; Priyanka XX; Vipin Chandra Kalia
      Abstract: Biodiesel industrial effluent rich in crude glycerol (CG) was processed to produce value-added product. Under continuous culture system, Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain CD16 immobilized within its biofilm, produced 3.2 L H2/day/L feed, over a period of 60 days at a hydraulic retention time of 2 days. The effective H2 yield by B. amyloliquefaciens strain CD16 was 165 L/L CG. This H2 yield was 1.18-fold higher than that observed with non-biofilm forming Bacillus thuringiensis strain EGU45. Bioprocessing of the effluent released after this stage, by recycling it up to 25% did not have any adverse effect on H2 production by strain EGU45; however, a 25% reduction in yield was recorded with strain CD16. Biofilm forming H2 producers thus proved effective as self-immobilizing system leading to enhanced process efficiency.

  • Production of Bio-Ethanol by Integrating Microwave-Assisted Dilute
           Sulfuric Acid Pretreated Sugarcane Bagasse Slurry with Molasses
    • Authors: Na Yu; Li Tan; Zhao-Yong Sun; Yue-Qin Tang; Kenji Kida
      Abstract: Sugarcane bagasse (SCB) and molasses, known as carbohydrate-rich biomass derived from sugar production, can serve as feedstock for bio-ethanol production. To establish a simple process, the production of bio-ethanol through integration of whole pretreated slurry (WPS) of SCB with molasses was investigated. The results showed that microwave-assisted dilute sulfuric acid pretreatment reduced the formation of toxic compounds compared to a pretreatment process involving “conventional heating”. Pretreatment at 180 oC with 10% w v−1 solid loading and 0.5% w v−1 H2SO4 was sufficient to achieve efficient enzymatic saccharification of WPS. By conducting separate hydrolysis and fermentation (SHF), an ethanol yield of 90.12% was obtained from the mixture of WPS and molasses, but the ethanol concentration of 33.48 g L−1 was relatively low. By adopting fed-batch SHF, the ethanol concentration reached 41.49 g L−1. Assuming that the molasses were converted to ethanol at an efficiency of 87.21% (i.e., ethanol was obtained from fermentation of molasses alone), the ethanol yield from WPS when a mixture of WPS and molasses was fermented was 78.30%, which was higher than that of enzymatic saccharification of WPS (73.53%). These findings suggest that the production of bio-ethanol via integration of WPS with molasses is a superior method. Graphical ᅟ

      Abstract: This study is to investigate the genome sequence of Serratia sp. S2. The genomic DNA of Serratia sp. S2 was extracted and the sequencing library was constructed. The sequencing was carried out by Illumina 2000 and complete genomic sequences were obtained. Gene function annotation and bioinformatics analysis were performed by comparing with the known databases. The genome size of Serratia sp. S2 was 5,604,115 bp and the G+C content was 57.61%. There were 5373 protein coding genes, and 3732, 3614, and 3942 genes were respectively annotated into the GO, KEGG, and COG databases. There were 12 genes related to chromium metabolism in the Serratia sp. S2 genome. The whole genome sequence of Serratia sp. S2 is submitted to the GenBank database with gene accession number of LNRP00000000. Our findings may provide theoretical basis for the subsequent development of new biotechnology to repair environmental chromium pollution.

           Escherichia coli Infection Imaging Radiopharmaceutical
    • Authors: Anam Iqbal; Syed Ali Raza Naqvi; Rashid Rasheed; Asim Mansha; Matloob Ahmad; Ameer Fawad Zahoor
      Abstract: Bacterial infection poses life-threatening challenge to humanity and stimulates to the researchers for developing better diagnostic and therapeutic agents complying with existing theranostic techniques. Nuclear medicine technique helps to visualize hard-to-diagnose deep-seated bacterial infections using radionuclide-labeled tracer agents. Metronidazole is an antiprotozoal antibiotic that serves as a preeminent anaerobic chemotherapeutic agent. The aim of this study was to develop technetium-99m-labeled metronidazole radiotracer for the detection of deep-seated bacterial infections. Radiosynthesis of 99mTc-metronidazole was carried by reacting reduced technetium-99m and metronidazole at neutral pH for 30 min. The stannous chloride dihydrate was used as the reducing agent. At optimum radiolabeling conditions, ~ 94% radiochemical was obtained. Quality control analysis was carried out with a chromatographic paper and instant thin-layer chromatographic analysis. The biodistribution study of radiochemical was performed using Escherichia coli bacterial infection-induced rat model. The scintigraphic study was performed using E. coli bacterial infection-induced rabbit model. The results showed promising accumulation at the site of infection and its rapid clearance from the body. The tracer showed target-to-non-target ratio 5.57 ± 0.04 at 1 h post-injection. The results showed that 99mTc-MNZ has promising potential to accumulate at E. coli bacterial infection that can be used for E. coli infection imaging.

  • Promoter Methylation of RASSF1A Gene in Egyptian Patients with Ovarian
           Cancer
    • Authors: Noha A. Rezk; Rasha H. Mohamed; Amr AbdAlmohsen Alnemr; Mervat Harira
      Abstract: Ovarian malignancy is diagnosed in nearly a fourth of a million women internationally every year. Methylation of RASSF1A tumor suppressor gene prompts its inactivation in diseases. In this study, the RASSF1A promoter methylation was detected by methylated-specific PCR and investigated serum RASSF1A protein level through enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay in 160 Egyptian patients with ovarian cancer and 160 healthy controls. The present work proved that there was a higher frequency of RASSF1A methylation and a decrease in its serum level in patients with ovarian cancer compared to controls as well as in the high-grade tumor patients compared to low grade ones and also in advanced ovarian tumor stage compared to early stages. Our study exhibited that RASSF1A promoter hypermethylation and its protein levels may be a reliable and sensitive tool for diagnosing and monitoring of ovarian malignancy patients.

  • Single-cell Protein and Xylitol Production by a Novel Yeast Strain Candida
           intermedia FL023 from Lignocellulosic Hydrolysates and Xylose
    • Authors: Jiaqiang Wu; Jinlong Hu; Shumiao Zhao; Mingxiong He; Guoquan Hu; Xiangyang Ge; Nan Peng
      Abstract: Yeasts are good candidates to utilize the hydrolysates of lignocellulose, the most abundant bioresource, for bioproducts. This study aimed to evaluate the efficiencies of single-cell protein (SCP) and xylitol production by a novel yeast strain, Candida intermedia FL023, from lignocellulosic hydrolysates and xylose. This strain efficiently assimilated hexose, pentose, and cellubiose for cell mass production with the crude protein content of 484.2 g kg−1 dry cell mass. SCP was produced by strain FL023 using corncob hydrolysate and urea as the carbon and nitrogen sources with the dry cell mass productivity 0.86 g L−1 h−1 and the yield of 0.40 g g−1 sugar. SCP was also produced using NaOH-pretreated Miscanthus sinensis straw and corn steep liquor as the carbon and nitrogen sources through simultaneous saccharification and fermentation with the dry cell productivity of 0.23 g L−1 h−1 and yield of 0.17 g g−1 straw. C. intermedia FL023 was tolerant to 0.5 g L−1 furfural, acetic acid, and syringaldehyde in xylitol fermentation and produced 45.7 g L−1 xylitol from xylose with the productivity of 0.38 g L−1 h−1 and the yield of 0.57 g g−1 xylose. This study provides feasible methods for feed and food additive production from the abundant lignocellulosic bioresources.
