A polyene macrolide antibiotic tetramycin biosynthetic gene cluster was identified by genome mining and isolated from Streptomyces hygrospinosus var. beijingensis. Genetic and in silico analyses gave insights into the mechanism of biosynthesis of tetramycin, and a model of the tetramycin biosynthetic pathway is proposed. Inactivation of a cytochrome P450(More)
Triazophos and chlorpyrifos are organophosphorus pesticides (OPs), and their primary hydrolytic metabolites are 1-phenyl-3-hydroxy-1,2,4-triazole (BZC) and 3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinol (TCP). In this study, the adsorption and degradation of triazophos, chlorpyrifos, BZC and TCP were investigated in paddy soil from Chaohu Lake, China. Adsorption tests(More)
This study aimed to develop an ectopic fermentation system (EFS) to reduce the pollution of cow wastewater and to provide a basis for the production of biofertilizer with fermentation residues. Six thermophilic strains, three of which have efficient cellulose-degrading abilities and the other have good ammonia-N utilizing abilities, were chosen as the(More)
A primary cDNA library of Penicillium oxalicum I1 was constructed using the switching mechanism at the 5' end of the RNA transcript (SMART) technique. A total of 106 clones showed halos in tricalcium phosphate (TCP) medium, and clone I-40 showed clear halos. The full-length cDNA of clone I-40 was 1355 bp with a complete open reading frame (ORF) of 1032 bp,(More)
Previous research showed that ectopic fermentation system (EFS) inoculated with thermophilic bacteria is an excellent alternative for cow wastewater treatment. In this study, the effects of thermophilic bacterial consortium on the efficiency and quality of the fermentation process in EFS were evaluated by measuring physicochemical and environmental factors(More)
A self-design bioreactor system employing a fixed bed operation process with immobilized Bacillus subtilis AYC beads for NH4+-N removal from slightly polluted water was proposed. Polyvinyl alcohol and Na-alginate were used as a gel matrix to entrap Bacillus subtilis AYC to form the immobilized beads. The NH4+-N removal process was studied in a intermittent(More)
A previously undescribed atrazine-degrading bacterial strain TT3 capable of growing with atrazine as its sole nitrogen source was isolated from soil at the wastewater outfall of a pesticide factory in China. Phenotypic characterization and 16S rRNA gene sequencing indicated that the isolate belonged to the genus Citricoccus. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)(More)
The bacterium KS-1, capable of degrading fluoroglycofen, was isolated from sludge collected at a herbicide factory. The isolate was identified as Lysinibacillus sp. according to its phenotypic features and 16S rDNA phylogeny. KS-1 degraded 85.25% of the fluoroglycofen (50 mg L-1) within 3 days of incubation. The optimum temperature and pH for fluoroglycofen(More)
OBJECTIVE To obtain phosphate-dissolving genes from cDNA library of Aspergillus niger H1. METHODS The double-stranded cDNA was synthesized using switching mechanism at 5'end of RNA transcript technique and ligated to the vector pBluescript II SK (+). We transformed recombinant plasmid into E. coli HST08, resulting in a primary cDNA library. We screened(More)
Bacteroidales has been proposed as a fecal pollution indicator. microbial source tracking (MST) based on Bacteroidales host-specific gene markers has recently been applied in the fecal pollution identification, which does not require culturing the fecal pollution indicator organisms. This method needs to design specific primers. The primers are designed(More)
