  • Analysis Of Protein Concentration Of The Homogenate

    (Clendening).Original homogenates were used to digest Glycogen. First, 50 µl of 8 mg/ml amyloglucosidase was added to 50 µl of homogenate to create a reaction to digest glycogen. Another 50 µl of homogenate was then combined with 50 µl of 0.2 M citrate buffer to act as a control with no enzyme to digest glycogen. The reactions were incubated at 37°C for 2 hours and we later observed absorbance (Clendening). During incubation, homogenate triglycerides were measured by assuming that triglycerides in all homogenates were equal to total glycerol. Glycerol standard sample was given to the class. One sample of 3 ml Triglyceride reagent was heated at 37°C for 5 minutes, then mixed with 30 µl of Bos taurus homogenate and incubated for 10 more minutes at the same temperature. Absorbance of the glycerol standard and homogenates were measured, and converted to concentration of glycerol (Clendening). ( A520 homogenate / A520 of the standard ) x 2.5 mg/ml glycerol The average triglyceride amount for each homogenate was determined. To make a standard curve of glucose, 6 samples of 3 ml of Trinder reagent were heated at 37°C. After 5 minutes, 30 µl of 0.2 M citrate buffer was added to one sample, 30 µl of 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, and 1.0 were added to one of the remaining 5 samples of Trinder reagent and heated for 10 minutes at the same temperature. Absorbance of the standards was measured (Clendening). Y= .3985x - .0005, R2 = .9871 To measure the free glucose and glycogen, 2…

  • Glycerol Essay

    fermenter to control aeration. This method resulted in a 40% glycerol yield efficiency at concentrations of 230 g/L. (Kalle, 1985; Vikar and Panesar, 1987). A fed-batch and continuous version of this reactor was also used, however there were no significant changes in yield, and the cost to efficiency ratio did not make sense to continue the continuous system. The production of glycerol with S. cerevisiae is fairly tranquil, the problems carry a significant burden towards the usefulness of this…

  • Yeast Biofilms Effect On Yeast

    brewer’s yeast will grow better in fermentable sugars (sucrose) than in non-fermentable sugars (glycerol) because it is a better carbon source. The prediction for this experiment is that the fermentable sugar (sucrose) will cause the TRY 143 flo ↑ yeast to increase growth the greatest and the TRY 140 flo ↓ to increase in growth less significant than the TRY 143 flo ↑. This prediction is based upon the fact that TRY 143 ↑ has more gene expression than TRY 140 flo ↓ and because of this it is more…

  • Yeast Fermentation: A Metabolic Process

    first time glycerol was produced on an industrial scale. The glycerol production involved the sulfite-steered yeast process. Yeast fermentation to produce glycerol has been known since Louis Pasteur’s era in 1858. During World War II the glycerol produced from ethanol fermentation was not enough because of its low yield, thus chemical synthesis was used. Multiple methods were created by many researchers to create a more efficient method of glycerol production. There are three processes in the…

  • Aspen Plus Essay

    The logic behind this is that in the presence of a catalyst and at the high operating temperatures, the catalytic partial oxidation and thermal decomposition of glycerol are expected to achieve equilibrium much faster than the reactions involving steam. Thus, the steam reforming of methane and water-gas shift reactions were rather considered to be kinetically limited where a plug flow model operating adiabatically was used to represent the process. The kinetic information previously used to…

    50-90% (One petri dish on the bottom will contain glycerol and have a mesh/gauze hot glued over top for the slater to walk on. On top of this will be another petri dish sealed with blutak to close off the environment.)  5x different glycerol solutions which range from 50-90% humidity (increasing by 10%)  String  Whiteboard marker  Timer  25ml measuring cylinder  Clean cloth…

  • Putida Case Study

    putida shows that an unusually long lag phase was observed (12 hours) when grows on glycerol (Glycerol mcl PHA REVIEW) .Escapa .et.al pinpointed that supplementing small amount of fatty acids or glucose, the length of lag phase can be minimized. Here, lag phase was eliminated by higher concentration of cells with nitrogen enriched complex medium as a inoculum. It can be clearly seen in fig maximum specific growth rate 0.6 h-1 and it is declined to 0.01h-1at 24 h . At 27 h maximum of 2.8 g/L …

  • Difference Between Deep Freeze Storage And Cold Storage

    It often used as a cryoprotectant. Glycerol can defend against cold temperatures by depressing the freezing point of the bacteria cells, enhancing supercooling. With bacteria, adding glycerol to final concentration of 15% will help protect from damage of freezing and thawing. When the freezing point of bacterial cells lowered by the use of glycerol, its prevent the formation of ice crystal which can cause intracellular injuries. Generally, the colder the storage temperature, the longer the…

  • Banana Peel Synthesis

    Banana peels were combined with glycerol as a plasticizer and orange peel essential oil that served as an aroma to the plastic. The glycerol makes the edible film flexible and elastic. Banana peels starch were extracted by filtration, banana peels were pulverized and then pressed with a cloth. The essential oil from the orange peel was extracted. White pith from the inside of the orange peel was scraped. Peels were cut into 1-inch pieces and was heated them in 110- to 120-degree-Fahrenheit water…

  • Four Types Of Macromolecules, Carbohydrates

    Macromolecules Everything on Earth is made of carbon. Due to this complex molecules are formed. These complex molecules are macromolecules. Macromolecules are polymers, formed by dehydration synthesis. Dehydration Synthesis is when monomers are combines and water is removed. There are four types of macromolecules, carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, and proteins. Carbohydrates are made up of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. With a structural components such as glucose and sugar.…
