Epidemiology of Strongyloides stercoralis in north-east Thailand: application of the agar plate culture technique compared with the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
Cross-sectional surveys of parasitic infection were performed using the agar plate culture technique (APCT) and modified formalin-ethyl acetate concentration technique (MFECT) to assess the trueExpand

Mixia osmundae: transfer from the Ascomycota to the Basidiomycota based on evidence from molecules and morphology
To determine phylogenetic placement of Mixia osmundae (T. Nishida) Kramer (Mixiaceae, Protomycetales), we sequenced the nuclear small subunit ribosomal RNA (18s rRNA) gene from M. osmundae IFO-32408Expand

Luteipulveratus mongoliensis gen. nov., sp. nov., an actinobacterial taxon in the family Dermacoccaceae.
A novel actinobacterial strain, MN07-A0370(T), was isolated from Mongolian soil and its taxonomic status was determined using a polyphasic approach. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence studiesExpand

Microbial polysaccharide, HS-142-1, competitively and selectively inhibits ANP binding to its guanylyl cyclase-containing receptor.
During the search for ANP receptor ligands of microbial origin, we isolated a novel polysaccharide, HS-142-1, from culture broth of Aureobasidium sp. HS-142-1 inhibited [125I]-rANP binding to ANPExpand

cDNA cloning, expression and characterization of nitric-oxide synthase from the salivary glands of the blood-sucking insect Rhodnius prolixus.
Rhodnius prolixus, a blood-sucking bug, is a unique insect that is known to produce nitric oxide (NO) in the salivary glands to use as a vasodilator for blood sucking. We report here the cloning ofExpand

MS-271, a novel inhibitor of calmodulin-activated myosin light chain kinase from Streptomyces sp.--I. Isolation, structural determination and biological properties of MS-271.
A novel cyclic peptide, MS-271, was isolated from the culture broth of an actinomycete, Streptomyces sp. M-271 as an inhibitor of smooth muscle myosin light chain kinase (MLCK). MS-271 inhibited theExpand
