Mating-type genes from asexual phytopathogenic ascomycetes Fusarium oxysporum and Alternaria alternata.
Mating-type (MAT) loci were cloned from two asexual (mitosporic) phytopathogenic ascomycetes, Fusarium oxysporum and Alternaria alternata, by a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based strategy and were confirmed to be functional in a close sexual relative, Cochliobolus heterostrophus, by heterologous expression.
Recognition of chitooligosaccharides and their N-acetyl groups by putative subsites of chitin deacetylase from a deuteromycete, Colletotrichum lindemuthianum.
The structural analysis of the first-step products indicated that the chitin deacetylase strongly recognizes a sequence of four N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (GlcNAc) residues of the substrate, which is completely distinct from that of a Zygomycete, Mucor rouxii, which produces a chit in de acetylase for accumulation of chitosan in its cell wall.
Secretion of bacterial xenobiotic-degrading enzymes from transgenic plants by an apoplastic expressional system: an applicability for phytoremediation.
The usefulness of the apoplastic expression of bacterial recombinant proteins in phytoremediation is demonstrated by the application of an apoplastics expressional system that secretes useful bacterial enzymes from transgenic plants into hydroponic media through the addition of a targeting signal.

An empirical formula C10H13N3O3 and an imidazo [1,2-a]pyrazin-3-one structure are proposed for luciferin, indicating that a pyrazine structure is not essential for biological activity with Cypridina luciferase.
Extracytoplasmic diaphorase activity of Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2).
OS1. gastric cancer
It is found that SRPX2 is a novel CSPG that is overexpressed in gastrointestinal cancer cells and is a new member of the cancer-related proteoglycan family.
