Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), also called host defense peptides, are an evolutionarily conserved component of the innate immune response and are found among all classes of life. According to their special functions, AMPs are generally classified into ten categories: Antibacterial Peptides, Anticancer/tumor Peptides, Antifungal Peptides, Anti-HIV Peptides,(More)
In an investigation of the yeast biota involved in silage deterioration, a considerable number of strains belonging to Saccharomyces and related genera were isolated from aerobically deteriorating corn silage in Tochigi, Japan. Analysis of sequences of the internal transcribed spacer and the large-subunit rRNA gene D1/D2 domain and electrophoretic(More)
Exon repetition describes the presence of tandemly repeated exons in mRNA in the absence of duplications in the genome. Its existence challenges our understanding of gene expression, because the linear organization of sequences in apparently normal genes must be subverted during RNA synthesis or processing. It is restricted to a small number of genes in(More)
In a taxonomic study on the ascomycetous yeasts isolated from plant materials collected in tropical forests in Yunnan and Hainan Provinces, southern China, four strains isolated from tree sap (YJ2ET) and flowers (YF9ET, YWZH3CT and YYF2AT) were revealed to represent four undescribed yeast species. Molecular phylogenetic analysis based on the large subunit(More)
Among basidiomycetous yeast strains isolated from wilting leaves of various plants in China, two groups of Pseudozyma strains were distinguished from the others by morphological and physiological characterization. Molecular taxonomic analysis based on sequencing of the large subunit (26S) rRNA gene D1/D2 domain and internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region(More)
The first "half-sandwich" Yb(III) single-ion magnets (SIMs) based on [12-MCZn(ii)-4] are reported, in which the central ytterbium ion is coordinated by YbO8 geometry in D4d symmetry. The anisotropic barrier is extracted from the analysis of static, dynamic magnetism and emission spectrum offering an insight into the magneto-optical correlation.
More than 50 ballistoconidium-forming yeast strains, isolated from plant leaves collected in Yunnan, China, were identified as Sporobolomyces roseus Kluyver & van Niel by conventional methods. However, comparison of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region and 265 rDNA D1/D2 domain sequences indicated that these strains represented more than one(More)
Six ballistoconidium-forming yeast strains that were isolated from plant leaves collected on Changbai Mountain, north-east China, were assigned to the genus Bensingtonia Ingold emend. Nakase & Boekhout due to the formation of asymmetrical ballistoconidia, cream-coloured colonies and Q-9 as the major ubiquinone. Two separate groups, representing two novel(More)
Among ascomycetous yeasts that were isolated from several nature reserve areas in China, three anamorphic strains isolated from soil (QL 5-5T) and fruit (QL 21-2T and SN 15-1T) were revealed, by conventional characterization and molecular phylogenetic analysis based on internal transcribed spacer and large subunit (26S) rRNA gene D1/D2 region sequencing, to(More)
