A Gram-positive, aerobic, non-motile and coccoid actinobacterium, designated P31(T), was isolated from a traditional, fermented seafood. The strain was catalase-positive and oxidase-negative. Cells grew in the presence of 0-15.0 % (w/v) NaCl, and at pH 5-10 and 15-37 degrees C. Major cellular fatty acids were anteiso-C(15 : 0), anteiso-C(17 : 0) and(More)
Strain M1-8(T) was isolated from jeotgal, a Korean salt-fermented food. Cells were aerobic, non-motile, Gram-reaction-positive and rod-shaped. Colonies were cream-coloured and circular with entire margins. Strain M1-8(T) exhibited optimal growth at 25-30 °C and pH 7.0-8.0 and in 0-4  % (w/v) NaCl. The strain tolerated up to 10.0 mM Cr(VI).

A Gram-staining-positive, aerobic, non-motile and rod-shaped bacterium, designated P27(T), was isolated from a traditional fermented seafood. The isolate grew optimally with 0-2.0 % (w/v) NaCl and at pH 6-7 and 30 degrees C. The predominant menaquinones were MK-12 and MK-11. The major cellular fatty acids were anteiso-C(17 : 0), anteiso-C(15 : 0) and(More)
A Gram-negative, aerobic, motile, straight or curved rod-shaped marine bacterium was isolated from marine sediment of the East Sea, Korea. The isolated strain, JG120-1T, grows with 0–5 % (w/v) NaCl and at 15–30 °C and pH 6–9. α-galactosidase activity test was positive. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence studies showed that this strain belonged to the(More)
A slightly halophilic, Gram-negative, strictly aerobic, non-motile rod, designated TW15(T), was isolated from an ark clam in South Korea. Growth occurred at 10-37 °C, with 1-5% (w/v) NaCl and at pH 7.0-10.0. Optimal growth occurred at 25-30 °C, with 2% (w/v) NaCl and at pH 8.0. Strain TW15(T) exhibited both oxidase and catalase activities. The major fatty(More)
A novel bacterium, designated strain 13-2-B6T, was isolated from seawater adjacent to Songak Mountain on Jeju Island, South Korea. The novel strain was observed to be Gram-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped and motile with a single polar flagellum. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, strain 13-2-B6T was determined to be phylogenetically closely(More)
Protein disulfide isomerase (PDI) is an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-localized multifunctional enzyme that can function as a disulfide oxidase, a reductase, an isomerase, and a chaperone. The domain organization of PDI is abb'xa'c, with two catalytic (CxxC) motifs and a KDEL ER retention motif. The members of the PDI family exhibit differences in tissue(More)
Restricted usage of chemical nematicides has led to development of environmentally safe alternatives. A culture filtrate of Aspergillus niger F22 was highly active against Meloidogyne incognita with marked mortality of second-stage juveniles (J2s) and inhibition of egg hatching. The nematicidal component was identified as oxalic acid by organic acid(More)
