An actinomycete, strain FXJ6.011(T), was isolated from a cup-shaped sponge collected at Dachan reef, Yangpu in the South China Sea. The strain had morphological characteristics of members of the family Micromonosporaceae. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain FXJ6.011(T) indicated the highest similarity (98.7 %) to Micromonospora(More)
A Micromonospora-like strain, RtIII47(T), was isolated from a mangrove swamp in Sanya, Hainan Province, China. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence indicated that the strain had a close association with the genus Verrucosispora and shared the highest sequence similarity with Verrucosispora lutea YIM 013(T) (98.0%). The strain also(More)
The phylum Actinobacteria has been reported to be common or even abundant in deep marine sediments, however, knowledge about the diversity, distribution, and function of actinobacteria is limited. In this study, actinobacterial diversity in the deep sea along the Southwest Indian Ridge (SWIR) was investigated using both 16S rRNA gene pyrosequencing and(More)
Population dynamic of nitrifying bacteria was investigated for nitrogen removal from municipal wastewater. Nitritation was established with nitrite accumulation ratios above 85%. Quantitative PCR indicated that Nitrospira was dominant nitrite oxidizing bacteria (NOB) and Nitrobacter was few. During nitritation achieving, Nitrobacter was firstly eliminated,(More)
A novel actinomycete, strain FXJ7.203(T), was isolated from a coastal sediment sample collected in Bohai Bay, China. In 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses, strain FXJ7.203(T) always formed a unique monophyletic line within the genus Nonomuraea and was most closely related to Nonomuraea turkmeniaca (97.9 %), Nonomuraea candida (97.8 %), Nonomuraea helvata (97.7(More)
BACKGROUND Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) is one of the most important cereal crops globally and a potential energy plant for biofuel production. In order to explore genetic gain for a range of important quantitative traits, such as drought and heat tolerance, grain yield, stem sugar accumulation, and biomass production, via the use of molecular breeding and(More)
A novel actinomycete, designated strain FXJ1.034(T), was isolated from acidic soil collected in Jiangxi Province, South-east China. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain FXJ1.034(T) belonged to the genus Lentzea and showed high sequence similarities to Lentzea kentuckyensis NRRL B-24416(T) (98.5%) and Lentzea albida(More)
We herein describe a simple, sensitive and specific method for analysis of circulating microRNAs (miRNA), termed S-Poly(T) Plus real-time PCR assay. This new method is based on our previously developed S-Poly(T) method, in which a unique S-Poly(T) primer is used during reverse-transcription to increase sensitivity and specificity. Further increased(More)
In this paper, we report the electrochemical fabrication of highly ordered Au nanowire arrays within hexagonal close-packed nanochannel alumina (NCA) templates with pore diameters ranging from 35 nm to 100 nm. The observations of TEM, SAED, and HRTEM show that single crystal Au nanowires have been obtained within the templates with 45 nm diameters. The(More)
Copper ion (Cu(2+)) and L-cysteine (CySH) are closely correlated with physiological and pathological events of Alzheimer's Disease (AD), however the detailed mechanism is still unclear, mainly owing to a lack of accurate analytical methods in live brains. Herein, we report a single biosensor for electrochemical ratiometric detection of Cu(2+) and CySH in(More)
