Abstract: Aspergillus nidulans is poorly exploited as a source of enzymes for lignocellulosic residues degradation for biotechnological purposes. This work describes the A. nidulans Endoglucanase A heterologous expression in Pichia pastoris, the purification and biochemical characterization of the recombinant enzyme. Active recombinant endoglucanase A (rEG A) was efficiently secreted as a 35?kDa protein which was purified through a two-step chromatography procedure. The highest enzyme activity was detected at C/pH 4. rEG A retained 100% of activity when incubated at 45 and C for 72?h. Purified rEG A kinetic parameters towards CMC were determined as ?mg/mL, ?mmol/min, and 55.8?IU (international units)/mg specific activity. Recombinant P. pastoris supernatant presented hydrolytic activity towards lignocellulosic residues such as banana stalk, sugarcane bagasse, soybean residues, and corn straw. These data indicate that rEG A is suitable for plant biomass conversion into products of commercial importance, such as second-generation fuel ethanol. 1. Introduction One of the major challenges of modern society is to promote economic growth in a sustainable model. Global demands of energy consumption stimulate the research on alternative fuels, aiming the reduction of the dependence on nonrenewable energy sources. For some decades now, Brazil and the USA have successfully produced bioethanol from sugarcane and corn, respectively. Nonetheless, plant biomass generated by extensive cultures, and which is not totally converted into useful by-products such as fertilizers and animal feed, tends to accumulate and cause environmental problems. Numerous efforts have been made in order to develop biotechnological routes to produce the so-called second-generation bioethanol from agriculture residues such as corn stover, rice straw, sorghum bagasse, corncobs, wheat bran, wheat straw, and sugarcane bagasse. The limiting step of this process is the availability of low-cost efficient enzymes to convert lignocellulose into fermentable glucose units. Filamentous fungi can produce and secrete enzymes which efficiently degrade cellulose, a linear polymer of glucopyranose units connected by β-1,4 bonds, to oligosaccharides and glucose. Based on model organisms from the genera Trichoderma and Phanerochaete, fungi cellulolytic enzymes acting in synergism have been classified as (1) endoglucanases or endo-β-1,4-glucanases (EC, responsible for the random attack of internal glycosidic bonds of the cellulose amorphous region, generating oligosaccharides of various sizes and new chain ends

Abstract: aedes aegypti l. is the major vector of dengue fever, an endemic disease in brazil. in an effort to find effective and affordable ways to control this mosquito, the larvicidal activities of essential oils from nine plants widely found in the northeast of brazil were analyzed by measurement of their lc50. the essential oils were extracted by steam distillation and their chemical composition determined by gl-chromatography coupled to mass spectroscopy. the essential oils from cymbopogon citratus and lippia sidoides, reported in the literature to have larvicidal properties against a. aegypti, were used for activity comparison. the results show that ocimum americanum and ocimum gratissimum have lc50 of 67 ppm and 60 ppm respectively, compared to 63 ppm for l. sidoides and 69 ppm for c. citratus. these results suggest a potential utilization of the essential oil of these two ocimum species for the control of a. aegypti.

Abstract: Oropharyngeal candidiasis continues to be considered the most common opportunistic disease in Aids patients. This study was designed to investigate species distribution, serotype and antifungal susceptibility profile among Candida spp. isolated from the oral cavity of Aids patients recruited from six Brazilian university centers. Oral swabs from 130 Aids patients were plated onto CHROMagar Candida medium and 142 isolates were recovered. Yeast isolates were identified by classical methods and serotyped using the Candida Check system-Iatron. Antifungal susceptibility testing was performed according to the NCCLS microbroth assay. C. albicans was the most frequently isolated species (91%), and 70% of the isolates belonged to serotype A. We detected 12 episodes of co-infection (9%), including co-infection with both serotypes of C. albicans. Non-albicans species were isolated from 12 episodes, 50% of them exhibited DDS or resistance to azoles. Otherwise, only 8 out 130 isolates of C. albicans exhibited DDS or resistance to azoles. Brazilian Aids patients are infected mainly by C. albicans serotype A, most of them susceptible to all antifungal drugs.

Abstract: the degradation of vinasses in aqueous solution from ethanol industry has been investigated by electrochemical oxidation using a boron doped diamond electrode (bdd). samples of vinasses were electrolyzed in medium of (0.1 mol l-1) na2so4 solutions at controlled potentials of +2.4, +3.0 and +4.0 v (vs. ag/agcl) and exhibited considerable reduction of total organic carbon. the cyclic voltammetry studies indicate that the vinasses are oxidized irreversibly over the bdd at 2.0 v (vs. ag/agcl) in diffusion controlled process. from the experimental results it is clear that the bdd electrode can be a valuable tool to the electrochemical degradation of vinasses in practical applications

Abstract: Objective: To assess the relationship between smoking, body weight and body fat distribution of blood donors in Piaui. Methods: A cross-sectional study with a sample of 595 blood donors, regardless of sex, from 18-61 years, registered at the Center for Hematology of Piauí (HEMOPI). Data were collected from November/2008 to February/2009. Cigarette consumption was assessed through an informed questionnaire. The measurements taken were: weight, height, waist and hips. We assessed the body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC) and waist-hip ratio (WHR). The group was divided into three subgroups (smokers, nonsmokers and former smokers) by the presence or absence of smoking practice. The association between variables was assessed by applying the Mann-Whitney/Wilcoxon test adopting the value of p 0.05 for significance. Results: Waist circumference and waisthip ratio were found positively associated only in females, both to current smoking practice (p = 0.0196 and p = 0.0050, respectively) as to the former (p = 0.0167 and p = 0.0167, respectively). Among smokers, the quantity of cigarettes smoked per day was positively associated with BMI in males (p = 0.0179) and WHR in females (p = 0.0448). Conclusion: Cigarette smoking, particularly among females, was associated with body fat distribution

Abstract: values for bulk density, thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat of corn grains were obtained in this work as a function of product moisture content. the infinite cylinder method with a central heat source was used in the thermal conductivity and diffusivity determinations. the equipment used consisted of an aluminum tube (0.1m of diameter and 0.5m of height) isolated in the superior and inferior extremities. a resistor (nickel-chrome; strength of 4.16 w.m-1; diameter of 0.0006438m) was used as a heat source that was located at the center of the cylinder (longitudinal direction). during each determination, the resistor was submitted to a difference of potential of 2.08v that provided an electric current of 1a. the moisture content of the tested samples varied from 8.6 to 17.1% w.b. the behavior of the values of thermal conductivity, diffusivity and specific heat as a function of the product moisture content can be represented by linear relationships. the thermal conductivity and specific heat of the grains increase with the product moisture content, while the thermal diffusivity decreases. errors involved in the thermal properties determinations are also discussed in this work.

Abstract: components in complex matrices can cause variations in chromatographic response during analysis of pesticides by gas chromatography. these variations are related to the competition between analytes and matrix components for adsorption sites in the chromatographic system. the capacity of the pesticides chlorpyrifos and deltamethrin to be adsorbed in the injector and chromatographic column was evaluated by constructing three isotherms and changing the column heating rate to 10 and 30 oc min-1. by using ancova to compare the slope of calibration graphs, results showed that the higher the injector temperature (310 oc) the lower the pesticide adsorption. also, deltamethrin influenced the adsorption of chlorpyrifos on the column chromatographic.
