A gene (ssg) encoding a putative glucoamylase in a hyperthermophilic archaeon, Sulfolobus solfataricus, was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli, and the properties of the recombinant protein were examined in relation to the glucose production process. The recombinant glucoamylase was extremely thermostable, with an optimal temperature at 90 degrees C.(More)
—In this brief, we present a 60-W power amplifier that is linearized using an RF predistorter for multicarrier wideband code-division multiple-access (WCDMA) applications. The proposed RF predistorter is fully composed of RF or analog circuits, and it has a moderate memory effect compensation capability using a delayed third-order intermodulation (IM3)(More)
To elucidate the role of SSIIIa during starch synthesis in rice (Oryza sativa L.) endosperm, we characterized null mutants of this gene, generated by T-DNA insertions. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) analysis revealed that the starch granules in these mutants are smaller and rounder compared with the wild type controls, and that the mutant endosperm is(More)
α-Arbutin (α-Ab) is a powerful skin whitening agent that blocks epidermal melanin biosynthesis by inhibiting the enzymatic oxidation of tyrosine and l-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (l-DOPA). α-Ab was effectively synthesized from hydroquinone (HQ) by enzymatic biotransformation using amylosucrase (ASase). The ASase gene from Deinococcus geothermalis (DGAS) was(More)
Arbutins (α- and β-arbutins) are glycosylated hydroquinones that are commercially used in the cosmetic industry. These compounds have an inhibitory function against tyrosinase, a critical enzyme for generating pigments, which leads to the prevention of melanin formation, resulting in a whitening effect on the skin. Although β-arbutin is found in various(More)
The physiological functions of two amylolytic enzymes, a maltogenic amylase (MAase) encoded by yvdF and a debranching enzyme (pullulanase) encoded by amyX, in the carbohydrate metabolism of Bacillus subtilis 168 were investigated using yvdF, amyX, and yvdF amyX mutant strains. An immunolocalization study revealed that YvdF was distributed on both sides of(More)
The deduced amino acid sequence from a gene of the hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus sp. ST04 (Py04_0872) contained a conserved glycoside hydrolase family 57 (GH57) motif, but showed <13 % sequence identity with other known Pyrococcus GH57 enzymes, such as 4-α-glucanotransferase (EC 2.4.1.25), amylopullulanase (EC 3.2.1.41), and branching enzyme (EC(More)
—This paper presents a new adaptive leakage canceler based on a direct leaky coupling method for an RF front-end circuit of an ultrahigh-frequency radio-frequency identication (UHF RFID) reader. For better receiver sensitivity, the leakage signal from a transmitter (TX) to a receiver (RX) should be suppressed. Compared with conventional methods, the(More)
