Using micro-Raman spectroscopy, the thermal conductivity of a graphene monolayer grown by chemical vapor deposition and suspended over holes with different diameters ranging from 2.9 to 9.7 μm was measured in vacuum, thereby eliminating errors caused by heat loss to the surrounding gas. The obtained thermal conductivity values of the suspended graphene(More)
The fungal cell wall has generated interest as a potential target for developing antifungal drugs, and the genes encoding glucan and chitin in fungal pathogens have been studied to this end. Mannoproteins, the third major component of the cell wall, contain mannose in either O- or N-glycosidic linkages. Here we describe the molecular analysis of the Candida(More)
Chitin deacetylase (EC 3.5.1.41), which hydrolyses the N-acetamido groups of N-acetyl-D-glucosamine residues in chitin, has been demonstrated in crude extracts from sporulating Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Two S. cerevisiae open reading frames (ORFs), identified by the Yeast Genome Project, have protein sequence homology to a chitin deacetylase from Mucor(More)
In addition to its exotic electronic properties graphene exhibits unusually high intrinsic thermal conductivity. The physics of phonons--the main heat carriers in graphene--has been shown to be substantially different in two-dimensional (2D) crystals, such as graphene, from in three-dimensional (3D) graphite. Here, we report our experimental study of the(More)
Extracellular culture filtrates from ligninolytic cultures of the lignin-degrading basidiomycete Lentinula (syn. Lentinus) edodes (Berk.) Pegler contained one major peroxidase when grown on a commercial oak-wood substrate. The peroxidase was purified by polyethylenimine clarification, anion-exchange chromatography, and hydrophobic-interaction HPLC. The(More)
A number of interesting beta-glucanases with a variety of substrate specificities have recently been described. These enzymes are ideal tools for elucidating the structure of the wide array of glucose polymers found in nature. Since many of the enzymes can be easily produced in substantial quantities by cloning and 'overexpression' techniques, they are(More)
