Indole is an interspecies and interkingdom signaling molecule widespread in different environmental compartment. Although multifaceted roles of indole in different biological systems have been established, little information is available on the microbial utilization of indole in the context of combating odor emissions from different types of waste.

A strictly aerobic, Gram stain-negative, yellowish-orange-pigmented, non-motile, rod-shaped strain designated YJ019T was isolated from marine sediment collected at Hwangwooji, a natural pond in Jeju island, Republic of Korea. Preliminary analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed that the novel isolate was affiliated with the family(More)
A new inhibitor, placotylene A (1), of the receptor activator of nuclear factor-κB ligand (RANKL)-induced osteoclast differentiation, and a regioisomer of placotylene A, placotylene B (2), were isolated from a Korean marine sponge Placospongia sp. The chemical structures of placotylenes A and B were elucidated on the basis of 1D and 2D NMR, along with MS(More)
Three new steroids 3-oxocholest-1,22-dien-12β-ol (1), 3-oxocholest-1,4-dien-20β-ol (2), 3-oxocholest-1,4-dien-12β-ol (3), and three known steroids (20S)-20-Hydroxyergosta-1,4,24(28)-trien-3-one (4) [7a], 5α,8α-Epidioxycholesta-6,22-dien-3β-ol (5) [10] and 5-cholestene-3β,12β-diol (6) [11] were isolated from a soft coral Dendronephthya gigantea. Their(More)
A Gram-negative, strictly aerobic, chemoheterotrophic, beige-pigmented, ovoid bacterium, designated YP194T, was isolated from marine sediment in the Republic of Korea. A phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence indicated that the novel marine strain belongs to the family Rhodobacteraceae of the class Alphaproteobacteria, with high sequence(More)
Several groups of structurally-related compounds, comprised of either five or six-membered ring structures with attached lipophilic carbon chains and in some cases possessing halogen atoms, have been isolated from various marine algae and filamentous cyanobacteria. The related compounds considered in the present work include the coibacins, laurenciones,(More)
