Monitoring of the wheat quality for food production
Slavíčková, Radka ; Hýsková, Eva (referee) ; Omelková, Jiřina (advisor)
The aim of this study was to monitor the quality of wheat Triticum aestivum, imported into the laboratory MORAGRO after harvest by eight different suppliers, and to evaluate the main quality parameters decisive for the final use of cereal crops. The introduction of the theoretical part was devoted to understanding commercial and agricultural importance of wheat and description of morphological and physiological characteristics of wheat grain. The core of the theoretical part has been focused on the description and explanation of physical and chemical properties of the wheat grain, which largely affect the final product quality of wheat. External factors affecting final quality and yields of wheat were also commented. The experimental part was based on measurements of main quality parameters of wheat (moisture content, bulk density, falling number, amount of gluten and the wheat proteins, sedimentation value and content of additives and impurities). In most cases, measurements were carried out using automated instruments. The quality of wheat was determined based on the obtained results, which allows deciding, whether it is appropriating for food production.
Optimization of the Production of Lipases by Bacillus subtilis
Slavíčková, Radka ; Omelková, Jiřina (referee) ; Hermanová, Soňa (advisor)
In this thesis, optimization of production of lipolytic enzymes by submerzed cultivation of Bacillus subtilis (BS) was studied. Production of lipolytic enzymes was tested in three nutrient media, which differed mainly in main sources of carbon, respectively of nitrogen. The first medium contained mainly extract from calf brain and beef heart (BHIB), the second medium contained peptone and yeast extract (NB) and the third one contained peptone and yeast extract with the addition of 2% (w/v) glucose (NBG). The highest lipolytic activity (0.0784 Uml-1) was measured in NBG medium. Maximum of lipolytic activity was observed before the end of the exponential phase of BS growth in all the media. Temperature optimum in NBG medium was determined from 30 to 50 °C, pH optimum in the range of 5 to 11 and subsequently the temperature stability of lipolytic enzymes produced by the BS was estimated. The activity value was determined spectrometrically using p-nitrophenyllaurate as a substrate. Produced lipolytic enzymes showed maximum activity at 37 °C in the alkaline pH of 8.0. Measurement of temperature stability showed that lipolytic enzymes are relatively thermostable enzymes retaining 100 % of the activity even after 1 hour of cultivation at 30 - 50 °C. The presence of 1% (w/v) olive oil in medium NBG caused a decrease in lipolytic activity by 65 % as well as in pH from 6.5 to 5.4 after 14 days of cultivation. After substitution of glucose by fructose in medium NBG, lipolytic activity showed comparable values during the first week of cultivation. On the other hand, the decrease of lipolytic activity by 29 % in the medium with fructose was observed after 14 days of cultivation. A procedure for the identification of lipolytic enzymes of BS by peptide massfingerprinting was developed to understand the potential of synthetic polyester - poly(e-caprolactone) as a lipase inductor. Degradation study of commercial polyester poly(e-caprolactone) was carried out by submerged cultivation of Bacillus subtilis in NBG medium at initial pH 7.0 and 30 °C for 14 days. PCL (Mn = 10,000, Mw = 14 000) was studied in the form of films (1.0 x 1.0 cm), which were prepared by melt-pressing, rapid cooling of the melt to 4 °C and evaporation of the solvent from 2 % dichlormethane solution. The evaluation of the films shown occurrence of weight loss (7.8 - 17.0 wt.%) together with the formation of numerous holes and cracks in the sample surface in relation to the method of the films preparation. Lipolytic activity values increased by 9 - 17 % in the degradation media compared to control samples. Densitometric monitoring showed also higher increase in cell mass in the degradation medium compared with control samples. Based on the results obtained, the degradation process induced by BS could be suggested.
