BACKGROUND We have previously reported on purification and characterization of beta-fructofuranosidase (beta-FFase) from Bifidobacterium adolescentis G1. This enzyme showed high activity of hydrolysis on fructo-oligosaccharides with a low degree of polymerization. Recently, genome sequences of B. longum NCC2705 and B. adolescentis ATCC 15703 were(More)
Two meiotic genes from natural populations are described. A female meiotic mutation,mei(1)g13, mapped to 17.4 on the X chromosome, causes nondisjunction of all homologs except for the fourth chromosomes. In addition, it reduces recombination by 10% in the homozygotes and causes 18% increased recombination in the heterozygotes. A male meiotic(More)
