Background Apocarotenoids, like the C13-norisoprenoids, are natural compounds that contribute to the flavor and/or aroma of flowers and foods. They are produced in aromatic plantslike raspberries and rosesby the enzymatic cleavage of carotenes. Due to their pleasant aroma and flavour, apocarotenoids have high commercial value for the cosmetic and food industry, but currently their production is mainly a...
Background: Understanding the interactions between prokaryotic and eukaryotic populations in complex environments can be challenging. Particularly, there is a recognized difficulty in establishing how the interactions between the bacterial and the protozoan populations can affect the performance of wastewater treatment plants (WWTP). Objectives: In order to determine the relationships between microbial...
Background: Conversion of long-chain fatty acids (LCFA) in anaerobic digesters relies on syntrophic relationship between acetogenic bacteria and methanogenic archaea. Conversion of unsaturated- and saturated-LCFA has been previously shown by a coculture of Syntrophomonas zehnderi and Methanobacterium formicium. Degradation of unsaturated-LCFA is rare among Syntrophomonas species; the best studied fatty a...
A comprehensive analysis on the use of different friction force models on the dynamic simulations of multibody systems is presented in this study. In this context, the most relevant approaches for dealing with friction available in the literature are revisited, classified into the statics and dynamics models. In this process, the main limitations and implications of the friction force models are briefly ...
