Two novel exopolysaccharide-producing bacteria, strains S18K6(T) and S18K5, were isolated from Pacific Ocean sediment. The isolates were Gram-negative, motile, strictly aerobic chemoheterotrophic bacteria. The DNA G+C contents of strains S18K6(T) and S18K5 were 44.8 and 46.3 mol%, respectively. DNA-DNA relatedness between the two strains was 70 %. Major(More)
A novel exopolysaccharide-producing bacterium, designated strain k53(T), was isolated from sediment from the Arabia Sea, Indian Ocean. The strain was Gram-negative, motile, strictly aerobic, oxidase-positive and catalase-positive, and required Na(+) for growth. Its major isoprenoid quinone was ubiquinone-8 (Q-8), and its cellular fatty acid profile mainly(More)
A novel exopolysaccharide-producing bacterium, designated strain SE3(T), was isolated from Pacific Ocean sediment. The strain was Gram-stain-negative, motile, strictly aerobic, oxidase-positive and catalase-positive, and required Na(+) for growth. Its major isoprenoid quinone was ubiquinone-8 (Q-8), and its cellular fatty acid profile mainly consisted of(More)
A bacterium, Ikeda-3, that was isolated from the wastewater of a winery was found to produce floating and precipitating exopolysaccharides (EPSs) when grown aerobically in a medium containing sucrose as the sole carbon source. The concentrations of floating and precipitating EPSs were approximately 2.7 g/l and 0.6 g/l, respectively, in a mini-jar fermentor(More)
A novel marine bacterium, designated strain 4k5(T), was isolated from a sediment sample of the Pacific Ocean. The strain was Gram-stain-negative, strictly aerobic, non-motile, oxidase-positive and catalase-positive and required Na(+) for growth. Its major isoprenoid quinone was ubiquinone 8 (Q-8), and its cellular fatty acid profile consisted mainly of C18(More)
A direct conversion architecture reduces the cost and power consumption of a receiver. However, a direct conversion receiver may suffer from direct current (DC) offset, frequency offset, and IQ imbalance. This paper presents an IQ imbalance estimation scheme for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) direct conversion receivers. The proposed IQ(More)
A novel exopolysaccharide-producing bacterium, designated strain 9a2(T), was isolated from Pacific Ocean sediment. The strain was Gram-stain-negative, motile, strictly aerobic, oxidase- and catalase-positive, and required NaCl for growth. Its major isoprenoid quinone was ubiquinone-8 (Q-8), and its cellular fatty acid profile consisted mainly of C16 : 1ω7c,(More)
