  1. 1. Lactic acid bacteria fermentations in oat-based suspensions

    University dissertation from Olof Mårtensson Department of Biotechnology, Center for Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Olof Mårtensson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; beta-glucans; probiotics; prebiotics; bacterial survival; Food and drink technology; Livsmedelsteknik; oats; ropiness; lactic acid bacteria; ropy;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the fermentation characteristics of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) in oat-based suspensions, with formulation work of fermented products based on oat and with nutritional studies of these products. Changes in structure in terms of viscosity and ropiness were studied when exopolysaccharide (EPS)-producing LAB strains, namely, Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. READ MORE

  3. 3. Lactic acid bacterial symbionts from the honeybee: Characteristics and applications in wound management

    University dissertation from Division of Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Éile Butler; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; wound management; honey; extracellular proteins; bioactive substances; honeybee; Lactic acid bacteria;

    Abstract : Antibiotic resistance is now a large threat with worldwide agreement that we will fall into a post-antibiotic era unless there is suitable treatment alternatives discovered. In recent years, chronic wounds have become a major burden on society and treatment is complicated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Interplay between bacteria and host epithelial cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Lisa Maudsdotter; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Microbial-cell interaction; Adherence; Infection; Lactic acid bacteria; Antimicrobial peptides; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Bacterial pathogens have developed multiple ways of manipulating host cell functions to exploit the host environment. We found that interactions with epithelial cells increase the resistance of the human pathogen Neisseria meningitidis to the antimicrobial peptide LL-37. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling and Optimisation of Integrated Biotechnical Processes -Application to the Fermentative Production of Lactic Acid from Wheat Flour

    University dissertation from Prof. Guido Zacchi, Deparment of Chemical Engineering 1, Chemical Center, Lund University

    Author : Christina Åkerberg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Chemical technology and engineering; economy; wheat flour; starch; lactic acid; kinetics; simulation; modelling; optimisation; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi;

    Abstract : Biotechnical processes are often integrated to increase productivity and yield. It is difficult to predict the effects of process integration and to find optimum conditions for the process. A valuable tool for the evaluation of a complete process is mathematical modelling. READ MORE
