Recently, we found that γ-oryzanol (Orz), a major and specific component of brown rice, improves glucose metabolism and attenuates the preference for dietary fat in mice by reducing hypothalamic endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. We also found that Orz ameliorates ER stress-induced pancreatic β-cell dysfunction and promotes glucose-stimulated insulin secretion under high fat feeding. A series of findings provide novel, natural food-based approach to prevent and treat diabetes mellitus and metabolic syndrome.
This study examined economic conditions of lactic acid fermentation through direct fermentation of sucrose utilizing the novel thermophilic bacteria Bacillus coagulans F6-2. Bacillus coagulans is a well known thermophilic lactic acid producing bacteria with high lactic acid fermentation rate. However, Bacillus coagulans that assimilate sucrose has not been reported so far. This study reports the results of optimizing the conditions of lactic acid fermentation, isolating Bacillus coagulans F6-2 that presents low auxotrophy and assimilates sucrose. From the experimental results, we obtained the average lactic acid fermentation rate of 4.94g/L and fermentation time of 19 hours, under conditions of utilizing non-sterile medium, 5g/L of yeast extract and 100g/L of sucrose. Under such conditions we obtained 98.79% of sucrose conversion rate and 92.9g of lactic acid. Also the average fermentation rate of 8.38g/LH was obtained when utilizing 15g/l of yeast extract, at the same level as a continuous fermentation.
Before and behind difference with a fixed sampling value is respectively calculated for the time series as 1st and 2nd amplitude difference. Then, these are mapped onto the coordinate system beforehand determined, and fatigue degree of bill is distinguished based on got distribution.
The crystallization processes using BLDA and their applications to the functional systems on panel are proposed. By this technology, the high performance thin-film devices such as TFTｓor solar cells can be realized on flexible panels.
