- ... Butanol can be produced biologically through fermentation of various substrates by Gram-positive Clostridium species. However, to profitably produce butanol at industrial scales, new microbial biocatalysts with increased tolerance to butanol are needed. In this study we report the isolation and selection of microbes to butanol. Ten strains, including Lactobacillus mucosae strains BR0605-3, BR0605- ...

- ... Cyanophycin (CGP) is a bacterial bioproduct having a straight-chain poly(aspartic acid) as a backbone with arginine pendant groups attached to it. It has many potential industrial applications in the areas of water softening, hydrogel, metal–ion chelation, and nutriceuticals. Biotechnological production of CGP employs as producing strains the recombinant organisms that express heterologous cyanoph ...
