An aerobic, Gram-negative, catalase-positive, oxidase-positive bacterium was isolated from a dried seaweed sample collected from Kimnyeong Beach in Jeju, Republic of Korea. The cells of the organism, designated strain KY 101(T), were rods (0.4-0.5x1.2-2.7 mum) and motile by means of flagella. The colonies of the cells were 0.5-1 mm in diameter, smooth,(More)
A Gram-negative, aerobic, orange-coloured bacterium, designated strain GSW-2T, was isolated from seawater sampled at a beach and its taxonomic status was established by using a polyphasic approach. Vegetative cells produced a prostheca and reproduced by budding. Mature vegetative cells were spherical, oval- or rod-shaped (0.6-1.1x1.2-1.3 microm) and both(More)
This study was performed to discover bifidobacteria isolated from human intestines that optimally convert linoleic acid (LA) to conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and to optimize the culture conditions of milk fermentation. One hundred and fifty neonatal bifidobacteria were screened for CLA-producing ability, and Bifidobacterium breve LMC 017 was selected as it(More)
This study was designed to isolate bifidobacteria from human intestines that efficiently converts monolinolein, a monoglyceride form of linoleic acid, into conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), as well as to optimize culture conditions for improving CLA production during milk fermentation. Among 150 screened neonatal bifidobacteria, Bifidobacterium breve LMC 520(More)
An obligately halophilic, stalked bacterium, designated strain GSW-23(T), was isolated from seawater that had been collected on the coast of Jeju, Korea. Cells of the strain were characteristically Gram-negative, aerobic, chemo-organotrophic, non-budding, motile rods or vibrioids that possessed prosthecae and holdfasts. Multiplication occurred by means of(More)
An aerobic, Gram-reaction-negative, non-motile, catalase- and oxidase-positive bacterium, designated strain MDSW-25(T), was isolated from seaweed collected in the vicinity of Mara Island in Jeju province, Republic of Korea. Colonies were smooth, circular and convex with entire edges and yellow in colour. Growth occurred at 10-30 degrees C, at pH 6.1-9.1 and(More)
