- ... Polyamines are low molecular weight aliphatic nitrogen compounds found ubiquitously in microorganisms, plants, and animals. Spermidine is a common polyamine that plays a role in stabilizing chromatin, DNA replication, transcription, translation, as well as the regulation of cell growth and apoptosis in eukaryotes. Amines are also associated with defense to a number of environmental stresses includ ...

- ... Over thousands of years, humans have mastered the natural vinegar fermentation technique of cultivating functional microbiota on different raw materials. Functional microbial communities that form reproducibly on non-autoclaved raw materials through repeated batch acetic acid fermentation underpin the flavour development of traditional cereal vinegars. However, how to modulate rationally and optim ...
