The enzymes and genes responsible for the catabolism of higher alkylphenols have not been characterized in aerobic bacteria. Pseudomonas sp. strain KL28 can utilize a wide range of alkylphenols, which include the 4-n-alkylphenols (C(1)-C(5)). The genes, designated as lap (for long-chain alkylphenols), encoding enzymes for the catabolic pathway were cloned(More)
Stenotrophomonas sp. RMSK capable of degrading acenaphthylene as a sole source of carbon and energy was isolated from coal sample. Metabolites produced were analyzed and characterized by TLC, HPLC and mass spectrometry. Identification of naphthalene-1,8-dicarboxylic acid, 1-naphthoic acid, 1,2-dihydroxynaphthalene, salicylate and detection of key enzymes(More)
This report examines relationships between residential location and travel patterns of the elderly. Using the 1995 Nationwide Personal Transportation Survey, we describe travel patterns of the elderly and estimate models of trip making, daily travel and transit use. Travel tends to shift to the middle part of the day with age, and trip making declines after(More)
Overweight and obesity lead to an increased risk for metabolic disorders such as impaired glucose regulation/insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. Several molecular drug targets with potential to prevent or treat metabolic disorders have been revealed. Interestingly, the activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR), which(More)
When grown with vaporized alkylphenols such as p-cresol as the sole carbon and energy source, several isolated Rhodococcus strains formed growth structures like miniature mushrooms, termed here specialized aerial architectures (SAA), that reached sizes of up to 0.8 mm in height. Microscopic examination allowed us to view the distinct developmental stages(More)
Pseudomonas putida F1 can assimilate benzene, toluene and ethylbenzene using the toluene degradation pathway, and can also utilize p-cymene via p-cumate using the p-cymene and p-cumate catabolic pathways. In the present study, P. putida F1 strains were isolated that were adapted to assimilate new substrates such as n-propylbenzene, n-butylbenzene, cumene(More)
The Korean Government is in the process of establishing a plan for managing fishing effort by setting up the maximum fishing gear usage per fishery type for the recovery of fishery resources. This will aid settlement of disputes between fishery sectors over fishing gears, and the stability of fishing business conditions. Especially in the setting up of the(More)
Bacterial Rieske non-heme iron oxygenases catalyze the initial hydroxylation of aromatic hydrocarbon substrates. The structures of all three components of one such system, the toluene 2,3-dioxygenase system, have now been determined. This system consists of a reductase, a ferredoxin and a terminal dioxygenase. The dioxygenase, which was cocrystallized with(More)
Ensuring the education of marginalized children has become an important agenda in order to reach the goals of universal primary education and gender equality. Education policies and projects aiming to target marginalized children often do so on the basis of demographic variables, such as sex, ethnicity, poverty and geography. We argue that this approach to(More)
