including adenosine, D-mannitol and cordycepin by HPLC analyses.
However, neither adenosine nor D-mannitol caused apoptosis in HL-60 cells, even at high concentration of 100 [micro]g/ml.
The relevance for cordycepin rather than D-mannitol or adenosine involving in induction of cancer apoptosis comes from the observation that less the cordycepin, the less apoptosis.
They showed negative responses for ornithine or lysine decarboxylase tests, and positive results for acid production from D-cellobiose, D-mannitol and ribose, use of L-proline as sole carbon source, and growth at 28[degrees]C.
They showed positive results for Thornley's arginine dihydrolase test, nitrate reduction, catalase test, hydrolysis of starch or casein, acid production from D-mannitol or D-trehalose and use of L-arginine, L-proline, L-serine, or succinate as sole carbon source.
This new microbial process can benefit food companies through the delivery of a consistent, cost-effective supply of D-mannitol.
