Morphology, genetic diversity, temperature tolerance and toxicity of Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii (Nostocales, Cyanobacteria) strains from Thailand and Japan.
Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii is a planktonic, nostocalean cyanobacterium, which produces an alkaloid heptatoxin, cylindrospermopsin. We performed morphological observations, 16S rDNA sequenceExpand

Quinoprotein alcohol dehydrogenase is involved in catabolic acetate production, while NAD-dependent alcohol dehydrogenase in ethanol assimilation in Acetobacter pasteurianus SKU1108.
The relationship between quinoprotein alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and NAD-dependent ADH was studied by constructing quinoprotein ADH-deficient mutants. Quinoprotein ADH-deficient mutants wereExpand

Lipase activity and gene cloning of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus LP009.
The production of lipase from Acinetobacter calcoaceticus LP009, a bacterium isolated from raw milk, was found to be best induced by Tween-80 at 1.0% concentration. It was efficiently secreted, andExpand
