Gene cloning, expression and characterization of a new cold-active and salt-tolerant endo-β-1,4-xylanase from marine Glaciecola mesophila KMM 241
Although a lot of xylanases are studied, only a few xylanases from marine microorganisms have been reported. A new xylanase gene, xynA, was cloned from marine bacterium Glaciecola mesophila KMM 241.Expand

Characterization, structure and function of linker polypeptides in phycobilisomes of cyanobacteria and red algae: an overview.
Cyanobacteria and red algae have intricate light-harvesting systems comprised of phycobilisomes that are attached to the outer side of the thylakoid membrane. The phycobilisomes absorb light in theExpand

High throughput and rapid screening of marine protein hydrolysates enriched in peptides with angiotensin-I-converting enzyme inhibitory activity by capillary electrophoresis.
Twelve kinds of marine protein materials, including fish, shrimp, seashell, algae and seafood wastes were selected for the hydrolysis using four different proteases. The IC(50) values forExpand
