Book Description :

Over the last decade considerable progress has been made in white biotechnology research and further major scientific and technological breakthroughs are expected in the future. The first large-scale industrial applications of modern biotechnology have been in the areas of food and animal feed production (agricultural/green biotechnology) and in pharmaceuticals (medical/red biotechnology). In contrast, the productions of bioactive compounds through fermentation or enzymatic conversion are known as industrial or white biotchnology. The fungi are ubiquitous in nature and have been sorted out from different habitats, including extreme environments (high temperature, low temperature, salinity and pH); and associated with plants (Epiphytic, Endophytic and Rhizospheric). The fungal strains are beneficial as well as harmful for human beings. The beneficial fungal strains may play important roles in the agricultural, industrial, and medical sectors. The fungal strains and its product (enzymes, bioactive compounds, and secondary metabolites) are very useful for industry (e.g., the discovery of penicillin from Penicillium chrysogenum). This discovery was a milestone in the development of white biotechnology as the industrial production of penicillin and antibiotics using fungi moved industrial biotechnology into the modern era, transforming it into a global industrial technology. Since then, white biotechnology has steadily developed and now plays a key role in several industrial sectors providing both high value nutraceutical and pharmaceutical products. The fungal strains and bioactive compounds also play an important role in environmental cleaning. This volume covers the latest research developments related to value-added products in white biotechnology through fungi.

Book Description :

"The thesis is presented as a compendium of publications and includes six different sections: General Introduction, Objectives, Results, General Discussion, Conclusions and References. The General Introduction summarizes the state of the art of Plant Cell and Organ Cultures (Plant Biofactories) and their applications for the pipeline production of Cosme-, Pharma- and Biopharmaceuticals. Objectives describes the overall aim of the PhD thesis, as well as the specific goals of each chapter of the Results section. The five chapters of the Results section are based on published scientific articles in ISI journals, where the PhD candidate is always the first author and in each article and when possible according with the editorial rules, it is mentioned that it forms part of his PhD thesis. Each chapter clearly refers to a particular goal of Plant Biofactories employed for the production of biologically active high added-value compounds. Briefly: a)Chapter 1 aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of plant in vitro cultures of Centella asiatica for the production of centellosides in optimized conditions by adding elicitors and potential precursors. Centellosides are widely utilized for their therapeutical properties and C. asiatica cell lines are also currently applied as cosmetic ingredients. b)Chapter 2 focuses on the biotechnological production of t-resveratrol, a bioactive compound found in wine and other foods, in engineered hairy roots of tobacco. The study aims to demonstrate the power of metabolic engineering tools for designing new organisms with modified metabolic capacities and their utility for the production of scarcely distributed plant compounds. c)Chapter 3 provides a paradigmatic example of how a metabolic pathway can be extended in a host organism by means of metabolic engineering tools. Silybum marianum cell cultures, which have the natural ability to produce polyphenol silymarins, are shown to have a previously unexplored capacity for the heterologous production of t-resveratrol, a new polyphenol in this plant species. d)Chapter 4 aims to demonstrate the broad capacity of plant cells for bioconverting exogenous substrates to target products, showing that tobacco hairy roots and their derived cell cultures can biotransform t-resveratrol into the more active metabolites t-piceatannol and t-pterostilbene, both high added-value compounds scarcely distributed in nature. e)Chapter 5 describes the production of the truncated human tissue plasminogen activator (K2S) in tobacco cell cultures derived from transplastomic plants, aiming to avoid the disadvantages of biopharmaceutical production in field transgenic crops. The Discussion section includes a general discussion of the main results obtained and described in the five chapters of the PhD thesis in the context of recent studies and the objectives of the thesis. In the Conclusions section, the main conclusions derived from the results reported in the five chapters are briefly summarized. The References include the complete references of all the articles cited in the general sections of the PhD thesis." -- TDX

Book Description :

Natural bioactive compounds have become an integral part of plant-microbe interactions geared toward adaptation to environmental changes. They regulate symbiosis, induce seed germination, and manifest allelopathic effects, i.e., they inhibit the growth of competing plant species in their vicinity. In addition, the use of natural bioactive compounds and their products is considered to be suitable and safe in e.g. alternative medicine. Thus, there is an unprecedented need to meet the increasing demand for plant secondary metabolites in the flavor and fragrance, food, and pharmaceutical industries. However, it is difficult to obtain a constant quantity of compounds from the cultivated plants, as their yield fluctuates due to several factors including genotypic variations, the geography, edaphic conditions, harvesting and processing methods. Yet familiarity with these substances and the exploration of various approaches could open new avenues in their production. This book describes the basis of bioactive plant compounds, their mechanisms and molecular actions with regard to various human diseases, and their applications in the drug, cosmetic and herbal industries. Accordingly, it offers a valuable resource for students, educators, researchers, and healthcare experts involved in agronomy, ecology, crop science, molecular biology, stress physiology, and natural products.
