The maT family is a unique clade within the Tc1-mariner superfamily, and their distribution is to date known as being limited to invertebrates. A novel transposon named EamaT1 is described from the genome of the earthworm Eisenia andrei. The full sized EamaT1 was obtained by degenerate and inverse PCR-based amplification. Sequence analysis of multiple(More)
A Gram-staining-negative, strictly aerobic bacterium, designated strain SD10(T), was isolated from a tidal flat of the Yellow Sea, South Korea. Cells were non-spore-forming rods that showed catalase- and oxidase-positive reactions. Growth of strain SD10(T) was observed at 15-40 °C (optimum, 25-30 °C), at pH 6.0-9.0 (optimum, pH 6.5-8.5) and in the presence(More)
Craniofacial anomalies (CFAs) are the most frequently occurring human congenital disease, and a major cause of infant mortality and childhood morbidity. Although CFAs seems to arise from a combination of genetic factors and environmental influences, the underlying gene defects and pathophysiological mechanisms for most CFAs are currently unknown. Here we(More)
Litter decomposition is a critical process for the maintenance of terrestrial ecosystems. Although large quantities of organic matter and nutrients are supplied by branch litter, its decomposition has received little attention. In this study, we focused on Quercus mongolica, one of the most common temperate deciduous woody species in the Northern(More)
Nano-sized polymeric amphiphilic micelle was prepared using the hydrophilic polysaccharide, oligo-chitosan, and hydrophobic side chains, ursolic acid which assists the skin penetration, because the amphiphilic polysaccharide nanoparticles have been widely investigated as the carriers for active agents such as small molecules, proteins, peptides, and nucleic(More)
