Cellulase and xylanase are main hydrolysis enzymes for the degradation of cellulosic and hemicellulosic biomass, respectively. In this study, our aim was to develop and test the efficacy of a rapid, high-throughput method to screen hydrolytic-enzyme-producing microbes. To accomplish this, we modified the 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid (DNS) method for microwell(More)
We isolated a xylan-degrading bacterium from seawater of Micronesia and identified it as Oceanicola sp. strain S124. We sequenced the Oceanicola sp. S124 genome using GSFLX 454 pyrosequencing and predicted 4,433 open reading frames (ORFs) including putative saccharification and phage-related genes.
An aerobic, Gram-negative, coccoid to short rod-shaped and non-flagellated marine bacterial strain S354T was isolated from seawater of Micronesia. The strain was capable to degrade agar-forming slight depression into agar plate. Growth occurred at a temperature range of 12–44 °C, a pH range of 5–9, and a salinity range of 1–7 % (w/v) NaCl.

A strain designated as S85T was isolated from a seaweed collected from coastal area of Chuuk State in Micronesia. The strain was gram-negative, rod-shaped, and non-motile and formed yellow colonies on the SWY agar (0.2 % yeast extract and 1.5 % agar in seawater) and Marine agar 2216. The strain grew at pH 5–9 (optimum, pH 8), at 15–40 °C (optimum, 25–28(More)
The outer membrane glycolipids of Neisseria lack long polysaccharides and are properly termed lipooligosaccharides (LOS). A Neisseria strain makes from two to six LOS of Mr 3150–7100. Different species commonly make LOS of identical Mr and epitope content. Oligosaccharide (OS) differences account for physical heterogeneity. OS consist of a conserved(More)
Five Plesiomonas shigelloides strains isolated from retail or wild-catch Louisiana blue crabs (Callinectes sapidus) were examined for resistance to selected antibiotics and presence of plasmids. Three agar media, MacConkey, Salmonella-Shigella and a modification of inositol brilliant green bile salt (IBB), were evaluated for isolation of P. shigelloides. Of(More)
