Aerobic degradation of lindane (γ-hexachlorocyclohexane) in bacteria and its biochemical and molecular basis
Abstractγ-Hexachlorocyclohexane (γ-HCH, also called γ-BHC and lindane) is a halogenated organic insecticide that causes serious environmental problems. The aerobic degradation pathway of γ-HCH wasExpand

Repression of the expression of genes encoding xylanolytic enzymes in Aspergillusoryzae by introduction of multiple copies of the xynF1 promoter
Abstract A xylanase gene, xynF1, was cloned and characterized from a shoyu koji mould Aspergillus oryzae KBN616. The xynF1 gene was found to be comprised of 1484 bp with ten introns. The deducedExpand

The lin Genes for γ-Hexachlorocyclohexane Degradation in Sphingomonas sp. MM-1 Proved to Be Dispersed across Multiple Plasmids
A γ-hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH)-degrading bacterium, Sphingomonas sp. MM-1, was isolated from soil contaminated with HCH isomers. Cultivation of MM-1 in the presence of γ-HCH led to the detection ofExpand
