Carbon-13 Metabolic Flux Analysis Of Soybean Central Carbon Metabolism: Response To Temperature And Genotype Effects , Vidya Vaancheeswaran Iyer

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Soybeans are a major source of high quality protein, edible oil, food products, and also several industrial non food applications such as paper coating, textiles and plastics. It is difficult to develop soybeans with high protein and high oil, however, due to the inverse relationship between these two components. Consequently, increasing seed protein concentration without adversely affecting the yield and oil content has been difficult to achieve. It has been demonstrated that the temperature and genotype of soybeans influence the protein or lipid composition considerably. However, the interactions between various pathways responsible for the changes in the composition are unknown ...

Water Reuse In Fermentations , Tzu-Yin Hsiao

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This work was undertaken to investigate the feasibility of reusing the process effluent from fermentation processes to minimize the liquid waste. Two fermentations with different characteristics were chosen as model fermentations for development of principles. The first was a yeast fermentation that requires high levels of carbon substrate for production of intracellular lipid. The second was a bacterial fermentation requiring high levels of nitrogen in the medium for production of lysine. The latter is used for commercial production of lysine;In the study of the first model fermentation, Apiotrichum curvatum, an oleaginous yeast, was used as the working culture. Spent ...
