Analysis of expressed sequence tags of Porphyra yezoensis.
Putative functional categories of these clones showed that the most abundant genes were involved in stress and defense mechanisms and that the next abundant geneswere associated with protein synthetic pathways. Expand
Cepacidine A, a novel antifungal antibiotic produced by Pseudomonas cepacia. II. Physico-chemical properties and structure elucidation.
The MS data and the NOESY, TOCSY and HMBC spectra show that cepacidine A is a cyclic peptide and xylose is connected to 5,7-dihydroxy-3,9-diaminooctadecanoic acid. Expand
Bestatin analogue from Streptomyces neyagawaensis SL-387.
A bestatin analogue, (2S,3R)-3-amino-2-hydroxy-4-phenylbutanoyl-L-valine (AHPA-Val), from the culture filtrate of Streptomyces neyagawaensis SL-387 was obtained in a chemically defined mediumExpand
DNase production by Clostridium septicum.
Sixty-two Clostridium septicum isolates were assayed for extracellular DNase activity and the molecular weight of the DNase was determined to be approximately 45,000, which is a majorextracellular protein produced by this organism. Expand
Gelastatins A and B, new inhibitors of gelatinase A from Westerdykella multispora F50733.
G gelatinase inhibitors (Matlystatins3) and BE16627B4) have been isolated from Actinomadura altramentaria and Streptomyces sp. Expand
Gelastatins, New Inhibitors of Matrix Metalloproteinases from Westerdykella multispora F50733
Nonpeptidic inhibitors of gelatinases from fungal metabolites, designated gelastatins A and B are isolated and their effects on tumor cell invasion are discussed. Expand
Radiotolerance of phosphatases of a Serratia sp.: Potential for the use of this organism in the biomineralization of wastes containing radionuclides
Using this co‐crystallization approach (without mercaptoethanol) 137Cs+ and 85Sr2+ were removed from a simulated waste selectively against a 33‐fold excess of Na+, and whole‐cell phosphatase retained 80% of the initial activity, even after loss of cell culturability. Expand
MR-387A and B, new aminopeptidase N inhibitors, produced by Streptomyces neyagawaensis SL-387.
During the screening for new inhibitors of aminopeptidase N, new substances MR-387A and B are obtained from the culture broth of Streptomyces neyagawaensis SL-387 and could be a new approach to suppress the growth or metastasis of cancer. Expand
Biosynthesis of dykellic acid: origin of the carbon skeleton.
Identification of the series-specific random amplified polymorphic DNA markers of Viola species
Although many Viola species are grown as ornamentals, no information on molecular markers is available for the classification and breeding of Viola. Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysisExpand
