  • Publication number: 20210276852
    Abstract: A refrigerator for drinks is provided. The refrigerator may include a cabinet having a storage compartment therein, and a dispenser nozzle disposed to be at least partially exposed outside the cabinet. A pump connection line being able to increase pressure in a drink container by delivering high-pressure air into the drink container and a tank connection line preventing oxidation of the drink in the drink container by delivering an unreactive gas into the drink container may be disposed in the cabinet. Accordingly, two functions of discharging a drink and preventing oxidation may be individually performed, so consumption of an unreactive gas may be reduced.

  • Patent number: 10724015
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a mutant microorganism in which a gene that encodes phosphofructokinase-2 is disrupted or deleted to reduce glycolytic flux to thereby improve the ability of the microorganism to produce N-acetylglucosamine, and to a method of producing N-acetylglucosamine using the mutant microorganism. The mutant microorganism according to the present invention has advantages in that it has high resistance to various chemical substances, grows rapidly, is easily cultured, and produces N-acetylglucosamine with high efficiency, indicating that it is useful for production of a large amount of N-acetylglucosamine.

  • Patent number: 9963696
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of screening a target metabolite-overproducing mutant strain using a synthetic suicide genetic circuit, and more particularly to a method of screening only a metabolite-overproducing mutant strain while killing a mutant strain that does not produce the metabolite, by introducing into mutant strains a synthetic suicide genetic circuit comprising a suicide gene coupled with a riboswitch. The method for screening a target metabolite-overproducing mutant strain according to the present invention has advantages in that a metabolite-overproducing mutant strain having a relatively fast or slow growth rate can be separated by visual observation, and in that the riboswitch that is used in the synthetic suicide genetic circuit can be replaced depending on the kind of target metabolite, and thus the synthetic suicide genetic circuit can be applied commonly to various strains.
