Transglutaminases are commonly used in a number of manufacturing operations, including the food and pharmaceutical industry, owing to their protein cross-linking properties. Transglutaminases derived from animal tissues and lungs, which were the first origins of this enzyme, are being substituted out in preference of microbial sources, which are less expensive and simpler to generate and purify. Following the identification of microbial transglutaminase (MTGase), the enzyme was formulated for...

Demands of renewable energy are increasing due to its effectiveness and sustainability. However, this energy source depends much on the weather and is unstable. Therefore, it needs to be connected to the power network via grid-connected inverters using power electronics devices. The power quality of inverter outputs depends much on the control strategy and modulation. The conventional control methods such as the proportional-integral (PI) and proportional resonance (PR) use the control loops...
