Three actinomycetes, designated strains VN05A0342, VN05A0351 and VN05A0415(T), were isolated from plant-litter samples collected in the north of Vietnam and examined in a polyphasic taxonomic study. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that these isolates were most closely related to the type strain of Kineosporia mikuniensis(More)
A 70-kDa chloroplast (ct) DNA polymerase from pea has been purified to apparent homogeneity. The ct DNA polymerase was insensitive to dideoxynucleotides (d2 NTP) but showed high sensitivity to phosphonoacetic acid. The enzyme lacked any detectable 5′→3′ exonuclease activity but showed 3′→5′ exonuclease activity. The polymerase displayed high processivity (3(More)
A novel actinomycete, designated strain VN05A0561(T), was isolated from plant litter collected at Ba Be National Park, Vietnam. The substrate mycelia and spore chains fragmented in a manner similar to nocardioform actinomycetes; the spores had smooth surfaces and were rod-shaped. Strain VN05A0561(T) had the following chemotaxonomic characteristics:(More)
Actinomycetes were isolated from 109 soil and 93 leaf-litter samples collected at five sites in Vietnam between 2005 and 2008 using the rehydration-centrifugation (RC) method, sodium dodecyl sulfate-yeast extract dilution method, dry-heating method and oil-separation method in conjunction with humic acid-vitamin agar as an isolation medium. A total of 1882(More)
To demonstrate the gastrointestinal survival of Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota (LcS) in healthy Vietnamese adults, a fermented milk drink containing LcS was administered daily for 14 days. Twenty-six healthy Vietnamese adults took part in the study. Each participant consumed 65 mL of a fermented milk drink containing LcS daily for 14 days. The drink(More)
Strain VN07A0015(T) was isolated from soil collected on Cat Ba Island, Vietnam. The taxonomic position of strain VN07A0015(T) was near Streptomyces aomiensis M24DS4(T) (98.5% 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity) and Streptomyces scabrisporus NBRC 100760(T) (95.6%), and it clustered within them; however, this cluster was distant from the type strains of other(More)
