Sphingobacterium cladoniae sp. nov., isolated from lichen, Cladonia sp., and emended description of Sphingobacterium siyangense.
A strictly aerobic, Gram-stain-negative bacterium, designated strain No.6(T), was isolated from a lichen (Cladonia sp.) collected in Geogeum Island, Korea, and its taxonomic status was established byExpand
Novel effects of TiO2 photocatalytic ozonation on control of postharvest fungal spoilage of kiwifruit
Abstract Novel effects of TiO2 photocatalytic ozonation (a combination of TiO2 photocatalytic oxidation and ozonation) were investigated for the control of postharvest storage rots in kiwifruit andExpand
Lichen Secondary Metabolites in Flavocetraria cucullata Exhibit Anti-Cancer Effects on Human Cancer Cells through the Induction of Apoptosis and Suppression of Tumorigenic Potentials
Lichens are symbiotic organisms which produce distinct secondary metabolic products. In the present study, we tested the cytotoxic activity of 17 lichen species against several human cancer cells andExpand

This study was performed to elucidate the anti-proliferative effects and the apoptotic mechanisms of extracts from Lethariella zahlbruckneri in HT-29 human colon cancer cells. Both the acetoneExpand
Characterisation of heavy metal tolerance and biosorption capacity of bacterium strain CPB4 (Bacillus spp.).
A heavy metal resistant bacterium Bacillus spp. strain CPB4 was isolated from heavy metal contaminated soil in Korea and further characterised. The CPB4 strain showed a high capacity for uptake ofExpand
Agrobacterium tumefaciens-Mediated Transformation of the Lichen Fungus, Umbilicaria muehlenbergii
Transformation-mediated mutagenesis in both targeted and random manners has been widely applied to decipher gene function in diverse fungi. However, a transformation system has not yet beenExpand

Lichens are symbiotic organisms that produce various secondary metabolites. Here, different lichen extracts were examined to identify secondary metabolites with anti-migratory activity against humanExpand
Lichen flora around the Korean Antarctic Scientific Station, King George Island, Antarctic.
As part of the long-term monitoring projects on Antarctic terrestrial vegetation in relation to global climate change, a lichen floristical survey was conducted around the Korean Antarctic StationExpand
New and noteworthy lichen-forming and lichenicolous fungi 2*
Abstract One new genus, i.e. Ivanpisutia S. Y. Kondr., L. Lőkos et J.-S. Hur, similar to the genera Carbonea and Lecidella of the Lecanoraceae, and eleven new species of lichen-forming andExpand
New monophyletic branches of the Teloschistaceae (lichen-forming Ascomycota) proved by three gene phylogeny
Seventeen robust monophyletic branches newly discovered in the phylogenetic tree of the Teloschistaceae after separate nrITS, nrLSU and mtSSU, as well as combined phylogenetic analysis are proposedExpand
