A batch biotransformation process running in the presence of microorganisms cells revealing a specified enzyme activity has been considered. The parallel deactivation of enzyme has been taken into account. An analytical solution determining the process course under isothermal conditions and at an optimal temperature profile has been presented. The advantages resulting from the application of the optimal temperature profile with respect to the isothermal conditions in terms of the duration time of the process have been assessed. The presence of the cell membrane has also been taken into account.

    A cascade reaction between aldehydes and indole catalyzed by lipase from porcine pancreas Type II (PPL) in solvent mixture at 50 °C was reported for the first time. Some control experiments had been designed to demonstrate that the PPL was responsible for the cascade reaction. After the...

    The cytolethal distending toxins (CDTs) comprise a family of intracellular-acting bacterial protein toxins whose actions upon eukaryotic cells result in several consequences, the most characteristic of which is the induction of G2/M cell cycle arrest. Most CDTs are hetero-tripartite assemblies...

    Background: Escherichia coli induces the heat shock response to a temperature up-shift which is connected to the synthesis of a characteristic set of proteins, including ATP dependent chaperones and proteases. Therefore the balance of the nucleotide pool is important for the adaptation and...

    A method for finding the transition structures (TS) based on constrained optimization techniques is proposed. The algorithm can be considered as a step-by-step walking uphill process along the minimum energy path, followed by a refining procedure of TS parameters in the saddle point vicinity. By...

    We present a study of transition state optimization with the divide-and-conquer (DC) density functional theory (DFT) method, using the addition of HF to trans-2-butene as an example. We present relative energies and geometries for each state in the reaction. We show that the DC method gives...
