XRD and HRTEM Evidence for Fixation of Cesium Ions in Vermiculite Clay
X-ray diffraction and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy showed that cesium ions (Cs+’s) in a vermiculite clay formed a segregated monoionic layer in the interlayer spaces. Each ion w...

Comparative study of flux redistribution of metabolic pathway in glutamate production by two coryneform bacteria.
In amino acid production by coryneform bacteria, study on relationship between change in enzyme activities and production of a target amino acid is important. In glutamate production, Kawahara et al.Expand

Circadian Gating of Photoinduction of Commitment to Cell‐cycle Transitions in Relation to Photoperiodic Control of Cell Reproduction in Euglena ¶
A novel type of circadian and photoperiodic control of the cell division cycle was found in photoautotrophic Euglena gracilis. When algae entrained to 24 h light–dark (LD) cycles (14 h L) wereExpand
