[More] The by-products of olive oil production can be used as sources of microbial strains. Penicillium sp., Aspergillus terreus, Penicillium aurantiogriseum, Aspergillus tubingensis and Aspergillus niger were selected on the basis of their epoxide-hydrolyzing activity towards racemic rac-glycidyl phenyl ether. We studied the effect on enzymatic activity of adding styrene oxide to the growth medium. It induced the biosynthesis of epoxide hydrolases and reduced cell growth. The resolution capacity of the five fungi was tested on rac-glycidyl phenyl ether, rac-benzyl glycidyl ether, rac-1,2-epoxyhexane and rac-1,2-epoxyoctane. The resolution of rac-glycidyl phenyl ether by A. niger, rac-benzyl glycidyl ether by P. aurantiogriseum and A. terreus, rac-1,2-epoxyhexane by A. tubingensis and rac-1,2-epoxyoctane by A. terreus provided (S)-3-phenoxy-1,2-propanediol (45.1% yield, 51.4% ee), (R)-3-benzyloxy-1,2-propanediol (40.8% yield, 43.3% ee), (S)-3-benzyloxy1,2-propanediol (45.4% yield, 45.6% ee), (R)-1,2-hexanediol (70.4% yield, 24.4% ee) and (R)-1,2-octanediol (21.4% yield, 27.5% ee), respectively. The (R)-enantiopreference of the epoxide hydrolases from P. aurantiogriseum is unprecedented.

[More] Droplet evaporation of multicomponent droplets is essential for various physiochemical applications, e.g., in inkjet printing, spray cooling, and microfabrication. In this work, we observe and study the phase segregation of an evaporating sessile binary droplet, consisting of a miscible mixture of water and a surfactantlike liquid (1,2-hexanediol). The phase segregation (i.e., demixing) leads to a reduced water evaporation rate of the droplet, and eventually the evaporation process ceases due to shielding of the water by the nonvolatile 1,2-hexanediol. Visualizations of the flow field by particle image velocimetry and numerical simulations reveal that the timescale of water evaporation at the droplet rim is faster than that of the Marangoni flow, which originates from the surface tension difference between water and 1,2-hexanediol, eventually leading to segregation.

[More] The design, synthesis and self‐assembly of new symmetrical 3,6‐bis(4‐(3,4,5‐tris(dodecyloxy)benzoate)phenyl)‐1,2,4,5‐tetrazine were described. The novel gelator, sym‐tetrazine, was prepared by addition reaction of 4‐cyanophenol with hydrazine monohydrate followed by oxidation reaction to afford the corresponding 3,6‐bis(4‐hydroxyphenyl)‐1,2,4,5‐tetrazine which was then subjected to esterification reaction with 3,4,5‐tris(dodecyloxy)benzoic acid. The chemical structure of the sym‐tetrazine gelator was confirmed by elemental analysis, fourier‐transform infrared spectroscopy (FT‐IR), and nuclear magnetic resonance (1H‐ and 13C‐NMR) spectral measurements. It was confirmed to exhibit relatively strong gelation ability to produce supramolecular assemblies in several polar alcoholic organic solvents, such as butanol, octanol, and 1,6‐dihydroxyhexane. The π‐π stacking and van der Waals mediated self‐assembly of tetrazine‐based organogelator were studied by scanning electron microscopy images of the xerogel to reveal that the obtained organogel consists of fibrillar aggregates. Investigation of FT‐IR and concentration‐dependent 1H‐NMR spectra confirm that the intermolecular van der Waals interactions and π‐π stacking were the key driving forces for self‐assembly during gelation process of s‐tetrazine molecules.

[More] A green synthesis of silver nanoparticles was developed, using a low-toxic system of microemulsion and nano emulsion with castor oil as the oily phase, Brij 96 V and 1,2-hexanediol as the surfactant and co-surfactant respectively. Geranium (P. hortorum) leaf aqueous extract was employed as a reducing agent. The content and concentration of a metallic precursor and geranium leaf extract (GLE) in the systems used makes it possible to obtain different sizes of silver nanoparticles from 25 to 150 nm. The characterization by FTIR and Z potential shows that the biomolecules of the plant extract act as a reducing and capping agent, giving negative charges to the nanoparticle surface. The present study represents a contribution to the green synthesis of silver nano particles that can be extended to other metals.

Exposure to methylparaben (MP) has been associated with adverse health outcomes, therefore, an alternative compound, 1,2-hexanediol (1,2-H), has been applied for cosmetics. In the present study, the phototoxicity of MP and 1,2-H, as well as the toxic effect caused by chronic exposure, were investigated using Daphnia magna. The 48 h acute toxicity tests with D. magna were conducted under indoor or ultraviolet (UV) light irradiation conditions, i.e., exposure to 4 h/d sunlight. Changes in the transcription of genes related to oxidative stress were determined in D. magna juveniles, to investigate the underlying mechanism of phototoxicity. The 21 d chronic toxicity tests of MP and 1,2-H were performed under indoor light irradiation. Exposure to MP under environmental level of UV light was more detrimental to D. magna. Transcripts of catalase and glutathione-S-transferase genes in D. magna was significantly increased by co-exposure to MP and UV light. After 21 d of chronic exposure to MP and 1,2-H, the reproduction no-observed effect concentrations for D. magna were 1 and >10 mg/L, respectively. The present study showed that exposure to UV could magnify the toxicity of MP on daphnids. Although acute and chronic toxicities of 1,2-H were generally lower than those of MP, its effects on other aquatic organisms should not be ignored. Further studies are needed to identify other mechanisms of MP phototoxicity.

[More] Acetic acid bacteria are used in biotechnology due to their ability to incompletely oxidize a great variety of carbohydrates, alcohols, and related compounds in a regio- and stereo-selective manner. These reactions are catalyzed by membrane-bound dehydrogenases (mDHs), often with a broad substrate spectrum. In this study, the promoters of six mDHs of Gluconobacter oxydans 621H were characterized. The constitutive promoter of the alcohol dehydrogenase and the glucose-repressed promoter of the inositol dehydrogenase were used to construct a shuttle vector system for the fully functional expression of mDHs in the multi-deletion strain G. oxydans BP.9 that lacks its mDHs. This system was used to express each mDH of G. oxydans 621H, in order to individually characterize the substrates, they oxidize. From 55 tested compounds, the alcohol dehydrogenase oxidized 30 substrates and the polyol dehydrogenase 25. The substrate spectrum of alcohol dehydrogenase overlapped largely with the aldehyde dehydrogenase and partially with polyol dehydrogenase. Thus, we were able to resolve the overlapping substrate spectra of the main mDHs of G. oxydans 621H. The described approach could also be used for the expression and detailed characterization of substrates used by mDHs from other acetic acid bacteria or a metagenome.

Exploring Lactobacillus reuteri DSM20016 as a biocatalyst for transformation of longer chain 1,2-diols: Limits with microcompartment

[Less] Lactobacillus reuteri metabolises glycerol efficiently to form 3-hydroxypropionic acid (3-HP) and 1,3-propanediol . . . [More] Lactobacillus reuteri metabolises glycerol efficiently to form 3-hydroxypropionic acid (3-HP) and 1,3-propanediol (1,3PDO) by the same mechanism as that for 1,2-propanediol (1,2PDO) conversion to propionic acid and propanol via its propanediol utilization (pdu) pathway. Pdu enzymes are encoded by the pdu-operon, which also contain genes encoding the shell proteins of the microcompartment housing the metabolic pathway. In this work the selectivity and kinetics of the reactions catalysed by L. reuteri DSM20016 Pdu enzymes glycerol dehydratase (GDH), 1,3-propanediol oxidoreductase (PduQ) and coenzyme-A acylating propionaldehyde dehydrogenase (PduP), produced recombinantly, was investigated against corresponding substrates of different chain lengths. Glycerol dehydratase exhibited activity against C2-C4 polyols, with the highest activity against glycerol and 1,2-propanediol (1,2-PDO). A double mutant of the pduC gene of GDH (PduC-S302A/Q337A) was constructed that displayed lowered activity against glycerol and 1,2PDO but extended the substrate range upto C6-diol. The best substrate for both PduQ and PduP was 3-hydroxypropanal (3HPA), although PduP exhibited nearly 10-fold higher specific activity. The enzymes also showed some activity against C3-C10 aliphatic aldehydes, with PduP having higher relative activity. Subsequently, transformation of polyols using whole cells of L. reuteri containing the wild type- and mutated GDH, respectively, confirmed the reduced activity of the mutant against glycerol and 1,2PDO, but its activity against longer substrates was negligible. In contrast, recombinant Escherichia coli BL21(DE3) cells harboring the GDH variant converted diols with up to C6 carbon chain length to their respective aldehydes, suggesting that the protein shell of the microcompartment in L. reuteri posed a barrier to the passage of longer chain substrate.
