More than 80% of the extracellular Avicelase, endoglucanase, xylanase and mannanase activities of the anaerobic fungus Piromyces were associated with a cellulose-binding complex. The complex was composed of at least 10 polypeptides ranging in size from 190 kDa to 50 kDa, and contained numerous endoglucanases, xylanases and mannanases. Multiple genes(More)
The cDNA designated celB from the anaerobic rumen fungus Neocallimastix patriciarum contained a single open reading frame of 1422 bp coding for a protein (CelB) of M(r) 53,070. CelB expressed by Escherichia coli harbouring the full-length gene hydrolysed carboxymethylcellulose in the manner of an endoglucanase, but was most active against barley(More)
It was disclosed in our group for the first time that the flavonoids in Lonicera japonica Thunb. are related to its therapy for gastric ulcer. Based on this finding, 20 flavonoids were selected for Helicobacter pylori urease inhibitory activity evaluation, and quercetin showed excellent potency with IC(50) of 11.2 ± 0.9 μM.
