Two types of xylanases (1,4-beta-D-xylan xylanohydrolase, EC 3.2.1.8) were isolated from the culture filtrate of a thermophilic actinomycete, Streptomyces thermoviolaceus OPC-520. The enzymes (STX-I and STX-II) were purified by chromatography with DEAE-Toyopearl 650 M, CM-Toyopearl 650 M, Sephadex G-75, Phenyl-Toyopearl 650 M, and Mono Q HR. The purified(More)
Agarase genes of non-marine agarolytic bacterium Cellvibrio sp. were cloned into Escherichia coli and one of the genes obtained using HindIII was sequenced. From nucleotide and putative amino acid sequences (713 aa, molecular mass; 78,771 Da) of the gene, designated as agarase AgaA, the gene was found to have closest homology to the Saccharophagus degradans(More)
The binding constants (K) for complexation of the phenyl acetates with linear alpha-1,4-linked dextrins have been determined from the kinetics of the hydrolyses of the esters. The K value tends to increase with increasing the number of the glucopyranose units, suggesting hydrophobic interaction as a binding force. The weak ability of the linear dextrins to(More)
[chemical reaction: see text]. A highly effective synthesis of 2-alkoxytetrahydrofurans from allylic alcohols and vinyl ethers was achieved by using catalytic amounts of Pd(OAc)2, Cu(OAc)2, and catechol (1:1:2) under O2. The use of catechol as an activator of Pd(II)-Cu(II) catalyst has been unprecedented. The 2-alkoxytetrahydrofurans are formed via(More)
