Abstract

The face is an important visual stimulus in daily life and each face identifies a particular person. The bone structure of the skull along with various soft tissues and coloration influence perception of the face. Facial averageness, and bilateral symmetry are the two most commonly used criterion of facial attractiveness, yet, both may be perceived differently based on hormonal status of the person observed. Facial perceptions may also differ according to cultural norms. In this research, we examined variations in face-shape among Sundanese male and female adults aged 18 to 40. We applied geometric-morphometric methods to analyze the landmark-based morphological variations in the frontal and lateral views of subjects? faces. We identified five types of female frontal face views and four of male. We also identified five types each of female and male lateral face views. The trichion, gonion and gnathion were three most variable landmarks among the face views in our study, and highly determined the shape of the individuals? faces. Multiple face type variation may refer to many categories of attractive faces since there is no exactly perfect category in the assessment of facial attractiveness by the viewers. Therefore, we believe that the configuration of facial features cannot constitute the sole visual criterion of facial attractiveness.

Abstract

Process Optimization for Endoglucanase Gene Expression Derived from Bacillus sp. RP1 by Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3)/egcABSTRACTCellulases are one of the most used enzymes in industrial processes. In an effort to increase production, industries have developed strategies such as isolating new cellulase producing strains, genetic engineering and process optimization since the last 50 years. One endoglucanase producing strain, Bacillus sp. RP1 was isolated from hot springs. The ribosome binding site and coding sequence of the endoglucanase gene (egc) from Bacillus sp. RP1 was cloned into pGEM-T Easy. The recombinant plasmid was used to transform E. coli BL21 (DE3). Cloning was followed by process optimization. Medium composition was selected using Plackett-Burman design. The medium components tested were rice hull, molasses, ammonium chloride, urea and fishmeal. Rice hull and molasses were found to be the factors most influencing enzyme activity and dry cell weight, respectively. The next step involved Box-Behnken method and response surface methodology to optimize the responses against molasses concentration, rice hull concentration and fermentation time. The concentration intervals used to test were 1%, 5.5% and 10% while the fermentation time used were 24, 36 and 48 hours. The conditions which optimized both enzyme activity and dry cell weight were 7.45% molasses, 6.45% rice hull and 39.52 hours of fermentation.Keywords: Bacillus sp.

Abstract

Transposon is well-known as mobile element found abundant both in prokaryote and eukaryote genomes. In bacteria, transposon (famous name of a transposable DNA) could jump from chromosome to plasmid and its contrary. One type of transposons in bacteria known as insertion sequence (IS), it does not contain any additional genes except a gene encoding transposase, an enzyme that correlated to transponsition activities. The finding of transposon insertion unfortunately found during cloning of a fragment derived from deep-sea metagenomic DNA in this research. In the initial, this research was aimed to clone and characterize the á-amylase encoded gene derived from metagenomic DNA isolated from deep-sea water and sediment of Kawio Island, North Sulawesi. Metagenomic DNA has been isolated from deep-sea water and sediment and by using Whole Genome Amplification (WGA) technique, the DNA it could be increased in quantities to 146,31 ng for each 1 ng of metagenomic DNA. A fragment of ~1000 bp in length was obtained by using touchdown PCR method. The presence of a transposon in this DNA fragment is proposed as a hypothesis for losing ~700 bp leaving just 310 bp cloned sequence. Analysis of sequencing result showed a highest similarity between this 310 bp partial fragment with a replication protein (Rep) encoded gene from Pseudomonas putida (Query Coverage: 88%; Max. Identity: 80%, Positive: 86%) and this protein is known to be involved in plasmid replication where transposase encoding genes known usually presence together with this gene (Rep gene) in a bacterial plasmid.

Abstract

Endoglucanase is used in industries that apply high temperatures, such as bioethanol, detergent, paper, and animal feed industries. Most available endoglucanases have very low stability at high temperatures. Therefore, this study aimed to identfy a new thermostable endoglucanase that is able to maintain its actvity at high temperatures. Five isolates of thermophilic bacteria were previously isolated from the hydrothermal vent of West Kawio, Indonesia. Among them, the DSI2 isolate showed the highest endoglucanase actvity, and was identfed and named as Bacillus safensis DSI2. The EgDSI2 gene was cloned from B. safensis DSI2. EgDSI2 is 1851 bp long encoding a protein of 616 amino acids. The encoded protein, EgDSI2, has high sequence identty to other B. safensis endoglucanases and was predicted with the Compute pI/Mw tool to be 69.41 kDa. EgDSI2 was high in hydrophobic amino acids. The enzyme had higher percentage of Ala andPro, and lower percentage of Gly compared to thermolabile endoglucanases from two Bacillus species. EgDSI2 harbored a catalytc domain belonging to glycosyl hydrolase family 9 (GH9) and a type 3 cellulose?binding domain (CBM3). Propertes of endoglucanases with GH9?CBM3 modular organizaton include actvity over a wide pH range, high optmum temperature, and thermostablity. Therefore, EgDSI2 has potental applicatons in the industries.
