The Continuum Heterogeneous Biofilm Model With Multiple Limiting Substrate Monod Kinetics
We describe a novel procedure to estimate the net growth rate of biofilms on multiple substrates. The approach is based on diffusion-reaction mass balances for chemical species in a continuum biofilm model with reaction ...
Contribuição ao estudo cinético da produção de polissacarídeos extracelulares por Zoogloea sp em melaço de cana-de-açúcar
(Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, 2014)
Models, theory structure and mechanisms in biochemistry: The case of allosterism
From the perspective of the new mechanistic philosophy, it has been argued that explanatory causal mechanisms in some special sciences such as biochemistry and neurobiology cannot be captured by any useful notion of theory, ...
Cinética de conversión de los carbohidratos presentes en la cáscara de plátano (musa cavendishi) para la obtención de etanol
(Universidad Nacional del Altiplano, 2016)
Extending the kinetic solution of the classic Michaelis-Menten model of enzyme action
The principal aim of studies of enzyme-mediated reactions has been to provide comparative and quantitative information on enzyme-catalyzed reactions under distinct conditions. The classic Michaelis-Menten model (Biochem ...
Effects of light intensity and dilution rate on the semicontinuous cultivation of Arthrospira (Spirulina) platensis. A kinetic Monod-type approach
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2011)
Semicontinuous cultures were carried out at different dilution rates (D) and light intensities (I) to determine the maximum productivity of Arthrospira platensis cultivated in helicoidal photobioreactor up to the achievement ...
Poor correlation between phytoplankton community growth rates and nutrient concentration in the sea
Nutrient availability is one of the major factors regulating marine productivity and phytoplankton community structure. While the response of phytoplankton species to nutrient variation is relatively well known, that of ...
Comparative Genome Analysis of Trichophyton rubrum and Related Dermatophytes Reveals Candidate Genes Involved in Infection
(AMER SOC MICROBIOLOGYWASHINGTON, 2012)
The major cause of athlete's foot is Trichophyton rubrum, a dermatophyte or fungal pathogen of human skin. To facilitate molecular analyses of the dermatophytes, we sequenced T. rubrum and four related species, Trichophyton ...
