Article
The aim is to replace mineral waxes with vegetable fats as an organogel for candle manufacturing while keeping the same texture. The physico‐chemical characteristics of renewable vegetable raw materials differ from those of mineral waxes and consequently the structure of the blends in which they are used is modified. Their properties are measured a...
Article
Nitrogen limitation and changing solar conditions are both known to affect triacylglycerol (TAG) production in microalgae. This work investigates the optimization of TAG production with a continuous nitrogen‐limited culture of Nannochloropsis gaditana in simulated day‐night cycles. The effect of day‐night cycles was firstly investigated in nitrogen...

In recent years diatoms have emerged as a major algal source for the production of bioactive compounds. Marine diatoms grow quickly and can store high amount of lipids. Unfortunately, they are little studied and underexploited resources. The current work deals with an original and rarely investigated source of diatoms: intertidal mudflats. It aims...
Article
The aim of this work is to track and optimize lipid recovery from Nannochloropsis gaditana in wet extraction operations. No significant differences in biomass concentration were found when disrupting microalgal suspensions of up to 30 g/L dry weight, but disruption efficiency differed depending on their physiological states. It took 5.8 min in a be...

In this work, a new methodological approach, relying on the high specificity of enzymes in a complex mixture, was developed to estimate the composition of bioactive polysaccharides produced by microalgae, directly in algal cultures. The objective was to set up a protocol to target oligomers commonly known to be associated with exopolysaccharides’ (...
Article
The production of lipids by microalgae is widely studied, especially to find the best bioprocess operating conditions and optimize the productivity of the targeted product. In this context, being able to monitor online the evolution of the lipid concentration is a great advantage regarding the control and/or the optimization of the production. Yet,...

Microalgal biotechnology has gained considerable importance in recent decades. Applications range from simple biomass production for food and animal feed to valuable products for fuel, pharmaceuticals, health, biomolecules and materials relevant to nanotechnology. There are few reports of the exploration of wider microalgae biodiversity in the lite...
Article
The sustainable production of lipids by microalgae is widely developed among the bioprocess community targeting various applications such as feed, food, health or bioenergy.

Article
Benchtop NMR spectrometers experience a great success for a wide range of applications. However, their performance is highly limited by peak overlaps. Emerging “pure‐shift NMR” (PS NMR) methods have been intensively used at high‐field to enhance the resolution by homodecoupling strategies. Here, different PS methods have been implemented on a compa...
Article
This mini-review highlights the potential of benchtop nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) for the monitoring of bioprocesses. It describes recent perspectives opened by the reduced size of devices in relaxometry, magnetic resonance imaging and NMR spectroscopy. In particular, the recent emergence of the benchtop NMR spectroscopy gives access to many a...

The work described in this paper investigates the behaviour of paraffin material under pressure. Compressibility has been widely described in the literature but the behaviour of paraffin materials under compression is not well known. This study intends to highlight the influence of particle size and shape of paraffin material on their compressibili...
Chapter
The microorganisms responsible for spoilage do not belong to a single taxonomic group. Bacteria, molds and yeasts can be the cause of alterations. The variety of food microorganisms depends on different factors. The first is relative to the nature of the food, for example, the fact that fish products may be contaminated by water, vegetables by soil...

An egg product is a complex matrix, mainly composed of water, proteins and lipids. It also contains carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and many other compounds in varying concentrations. This chemical complexity makes it difficult to analyze, and most of the protocols are mainly concerned with the albumen and vitellus fractions, aside from the whole...

We developed an easy-to-use method for the routine analysis of the central metabolism using an affordable low-resolution GC–MS system run in SIM mode. The profiling approach was optimized for the derivatization protocol of some 60 targeted metabolites. The performance of two silylation reagents (MSTFA and BSTFA) that allowed the comprehensive deriv...

The mechanical characteristics of a paraffin–vegetable oil material and the compressive behavior of the powder stemming from this material were used to estimate the resistance of the compressed samples. The compressive behavior of powders under the low pressure range (1–2 MPa) applied in the candle industry was investigated in order to predict the...

Two recent techniques based on chemical footprinting analysis, HRMAS NMR and FTIR spectroscopy, were tested on a brown macroalgal model. These powerful and easily-to-use techniques allowed us to discriminate Sargassum muticum specimens collected in five different countries along Atlantic coasts, from Portugal to Norway. HRMAS NMR and FT-IR permitte...

Absolute concentrations of total macromolecules (triglycerides, proteins and carbohydrates) in microorganisms can be rapidly measured by FTIR spectroscopy, but caution is needed to avoid non-specific experimental bias. Here, we assess the limits within which this approach can be used on model solutions of macromolecules of interest. We used the Bru...

Over the past years, the substitution of the classical biochemical quantification techniques by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy has been widely studied on microalgae because of its tremendous application potential for bioprocess monitoring. In the present work, mandatory aspects that have never been approached by FTIR end-users worki...

In the field of composite materials, natural fibres appear to be a viable replacement for glass fibres. However, in humid conditions, strong hydrophilic behavior of such materials can lead to high level of moisture absorption. This feature can result in a structural modification of the fibres and a modification of their own mechanical properties as...

Microorganisms display vast diversity, and each one has its own set of genes, cell components and metabolic reactions. To assess their huge unexploited metabolic potential in different ecosystems, we need high throughput tools, such as functional microarrays, that allow the simultaneous analysis of thousands of genes. However, most classical functi...

Background: Microsporidia are obligate intracellular eukaryotic parasites with genomes ranging in size from 2.3 Mbp to more than 20 Mbp. The extremely small (2.9 Mbp) and highly compact (approximately 1 gene/kb) genome of the human parasite Encephalitozoon cuniculi has been fully sequenced. The aim of this study was to characterize noncoding motif...

We investigate an important issue of a meta-algorithm for selecting variables in the framework of microarray data. This wrapper method starts from any classification algorithm and weights each variable (i.e. gene) relative to its efficiency for classification. An optimization procedure is then inferred which exhibits important genes for the studied...

A proteinaceous inhibitor of alpha-amylase, Tendamistat, was evaluated as an immunogen to induce antibodies that mimic the enzyme activity and to investigate a new strategy to produce catalytic antibodies. Anti-Tendamistat polyclonal antibodies (pAbs) were shown to cross-react with acarbose, a strong carbohydrate inhibitor of alpha-amylases, and th...

The crystal structure of the complex of a catalytic antibody with its cationic hapten at 1.9-A resolution demonstrates that the hapten amidinium group is stabilized through an ionic pair interaction with the carboxylate of a combining-site residue. The location of this carboxylate allows it to act as a general base in an allylic rearrangement. When...

The catalytic antibody 4B2, which was generated against a substituted amidine 1, catalyses the allylic isomerization of beta, gamma-unsaturated ketones with an acceleration factor (k(cat)/k(uncat)) of 1.5x10(3). On the basis of the 'bait and switch' strategy, it was reasoned that the positively charged hapten could elicit, by charge complementarity...
