Several yeast strains degrading malic acid as a sole carbon and energy source were isolated from Korean wine pomace after enrichment culture in the presence of malic acid. Among them, the strain designated as KMBL 5774 showed the highest malic acid degrading ability. It was identified as Issatchenkia orientalis based on its morphological and physiological(More)
Two novel extracellular cholesterol oxidases designated CO1 and CO2, from Bacillus sp. SFF34, were purified 5.6 and 5.9-fold giving Mr values of 36 and 37 kDa. The optimum temperature for the activity was 60 °C (CO1) and 40 °C (CO2), and the optimum pH was 6.25 (CO1) and 6 (CO2) over 30 min reaction time. The apparent K m values for cholesterol were 6.76 mM(More)
Antimutagenic activity of Lactobacillus plantarum KLAB21, isolated from Korean kimchi, was investigated against MNNG (N-methyl-N′-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine), NQO (4-nitroquinoline-1-oxide), NPD (4-nitro-O-phenylenediamine) and aflatoxin B1 using Salmonella typhimurium strains TA100 and TA98. Although all the cell fractions including the culture supernatant,(More)
