Two new oxazole/thiazole derivatives, named tetroazolemycins A (1) and B (2), have been isolated from the acetone extract of the mycelium of Streptomyces olivaceus FXJ8.012 derived from deep-sea water, together with three known compounds, spoxazomicins A-C (3-5), isolated from the fermentation supernatant. The planar structure and relative configuration of(More)
Water uptake across cell membranes is a principal requirement for plant growth at both the cellular and whole-plant levels. Water movement through plant membranes is regulated by aquaporins. We examined the expression of the OsAQP gene, encodes a tonoplast intrinsic protein (TIP), which was isolated from a rice panicle cDNA library. Semi-quantitative RT-PCR(More)
Five new dibenzoxazepinone derivatives, mycemycins A-E (1-5), were isolated from the ethanol extracts of mycelia of two different streptomycetes. 1 and 2 were isolated from an acidic red soil-derived strain, Streptomyces sp. FXJ1.235, and 3-5 from a gntR gene-disrupted deep-sea strain named Streptomyces olivaceus FXJ8.012Δ1741. The structures of mycemycins(More)
The genome-wide transcriptional responses of S. cerevisiae to heterologous carotenoid biosynthesis were investigated using DNA microarray analysis. The results show that the genes involved in metal ion transport were specifically up-regulated in the recombinant strain, and metal ions, including Cu2+, Fe2+, Mn2+, and Mg2+, were deficient in the recombinant(More)
Staphylococcus aureus is an important human pathogen that causes a variety of diseases, ranging from localized skin infections to life-threatening systemic infections. The success of S. aureus as a pathogen is partly due to its ability to adhere to a wide range of host tissues by binding to host extracellular matrix proteins such as fibrinogen, fibronectin,(More)
