Abstract A comparative study of rhamnolipid congener synthesis was performed using the neotype Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 10145 and two marine isolates (1A01151 and 1A00364). Compared with the neotype, 1A01151 and 1A00364 showed increased production of rhamnolipids containing higher proportion of congeners with longer fatty acid chains (C 10 -C 12 and C 10 -C 12:1 ) and/or di-rhamnose moiety. These could reduce surface tension of water to lower minimum values of 21.3 mN m -1 and 25.7 mN m -1 . The comparative profile of rhamnolipid congener composition, fatty acid content and gene expression suggested that elevated expression of rhlAB and rhlC throughout the fermentation process and enhanced accumulation of dTDP-L-rhamnose and fatty acid precursors (C 12 and C 12:1 ) at the onset of rhamnolipid accumulation were related to improved rhamnolipid production and surface-active property. This work provides insights into the metabolic relationship between rhamnolipids and related precursor biosynthesis, and could therefore be beneficial for process optimization for efficient rhamnolipid congener production.

Abstract Rhamnolipid produced from a Lysinibacillus sphaericus IITR51 was characterized and its ability for dissolution of hydrophobic pesticides were evaluated. L. sphaericus produced 1.6 g/L of an anionic biosurfactant that reduced surface tension from 72 N/m to 52 N/m with 48% emulsification index. The biosurfactant was found stable over a wide range of pH (4.0–10.0), temperature (4–100 °C), salt concentration (2–14%) and was identified as rhamnolipid. At the concentration of 90 mg/L rhamnoli...

Abstract Effects of rhamnolipids on the removal of 2,4,2,4-tetrabrominated biphenyl ether (BDE-47) by Phanerochaete chrysosporium (P. chrysosporium) had been investigated, as well as the influence of carbon source (i.e. glucose). The results showed that the removal efficiency was over 90% in all treatments in 7 d. Rhamnolipids at low concentrations (0.05 and 0.1 CMC (critical micelle concentration)) could promote the removal of BDE-47, however, the inhibition effects occurred at high concentrati...

Abstract Some surfactants can enhance the removal of phenol by laccase (Lac) in various industrial effluents. Their behavior and function in the biodegradation of phenolic wastewater have been experimentally reported by many researchers, but the underlying molecular mechanism is still unclear. Therefore, the interaction mechanisms of phenol with Lac from Trametes versicolor were investigated in the presence or absence of Triton X-100 (TX100) or rhamnolipid (RL) by molecular docking and molecular...

Since 60–80% of total costs of production are usually associated with downstream collection, separation and purification processes, it has become advantageous to investigate how to replace traditional methods with efficient and cost-effective alternative techniques for recovery and purification of biosurfactants. In the traditional techniques, large volumes of organic solvents are usually used increasing production cost and the overall environmental burden. In addition, traditional production an...

Abstract The present work assessed the feasibility of used cooking oil as a low cost carbon source for rhamnolipid biosurfactant production employing the strain Burkholderia thailandensis . According to the results, B. thailandensis was able to produce rhamnolipids up to 2.2 g/L, with the dominant congener being the di-rhamnolipid Rha-Rha-C 14 -C 14 . Rhamnolipids had the ability to reduce the surface tension to 37.7 mN/m and the interfacial tension against benzene and oleic acid to 4.2 and 1.5 ...

Abstract In this research we assess the feasibility of using palm oil agricultural refinery waste as a carbon source for the production of rhamnolipid biosurfactant through fermentation. The production and characterization of rhamnolipid produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 grown on palm fatty acid distillate (PFAD) under batch fermentation were investigated. Results show that P. aeruginosa PAO1 can grow and produce 0.43 g L −1 of rhamnolipid using PFAD as the sole carbon source. Identificati...

Rhamnolipids have emerged as a very promising class of biosurfactants in the last decades, exhibiting properties of great interest in several industrial applications, and have represented a suitable alternative to chemically-synthesized surfactants. This class of biosurfactants has been extensively studied in recent years, aiming at their large-scale production based on renewable resources, which still require high financial costs. Development of non-pathogenic, high-producing strains has been t...

Rhamnolipid is a potent natural biosurfactant for industrial and environmental applications such as enhanced oil recovery, bioremediation, and biodegradation. The complex regulation network of key genes involved in the biosynthesis of rhamnolipid in Pseudomonas aeruginosa represents a challenge to the industrial production of rhamnolipid. In this study, rhlAB genes with native promoter were cloned from P. aeruginosa SG and inserted into plasmid pBBR1MCS-5 to construct recombinant plasmid pBBRPrh...

Pseudomonas spp. are the main producers of rhamnolipids. These products have applications in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food industry and bioremediation. The biosynthesis of rhamnolipids is influenced by nutrient composition, pH and temperature. In this study, the impact of nutrients on the expression levels of rhamnolipid synthesis genes was evaluated in P. aeruginosa ATCC 15442. Glucose and glycerol were used as carbon sources; while, NaNO3, NH4NO3 and yeast extract/peptone were employed as n...

Biosurfactants are amphiphilic secondary metabolites produced by microorganisms. Marine bacteria have recently emerged as a rich source for these natural products which exhibit surface-active properties, making them useful for diverse applications such as detergents, wetting and foaming agents, solubilisers, emulsifiers and dispersants. Although precise structural data are often lacking, the already available information deduced from biochemical analyses and genome sequences of marine microbes i...
