Enrichment of anammox bacteria from marine environment for the construction of a bioremediation reactor
This study established an enrichment culture of marine anammox bacteria (MAB) in a column-type reactor and identified two 16S rRNA genes in the amplified DNA fragments derived from MAB which were highly homologous with those from Candidatus “Scalindua wagneri” and an uncultured planctomycete clone.

The cellulolytic and hemi-cellulolytic system of Bacillus licheniformis SVD1 and the evidence for production of a large multi-enzyme complex.
It was established that the crude fraction could release xylose from insoluble birchwood xylan, while the MEC was only able to produce xylobiose from this substrate, and the presence of both high xylanase and mannanase activity makes this MEC unusual. Expand
Characterization of Xyn30A and Axh43A of Bacillus licheniformis SVD1 identified by its genomic analysis.
The genome sequence of Bacillus licheniformis SVD1, that produces a cellulolytic and hemi-cellulolytic multienzyme complex, was partially determined, indicating that the glycoside hydrolase system ofExpand
Stable Production of Thermotolerant Xylanase B of Clostridium stercorarium in Transgenic Tobacco and Rice
In contrast to tobacco plants, expression of the xynB gene under the control of the rice actin promoter in rice plants was toxic to host cells, and the recombinant XynBM degraded hemicellulosic polymers in cell-free extracts of transgenic rice leaves. Expand
Identification of endoglucanases, xylanases, pectinases and mannanases in the multi-enzyme complex of Bacillus licheniformis SVD1
The cellulolytic and hemi-cellulolytic system of Bacillus licheniformis SVD1 is examined with respect to the presence of key enzymes within the MEC found in this organism to help utilising such a system for the synergistic degradation of complex lignocellulose substrates. Expand
Probing of exopolysaccharides with green fluorescence protein-labeled carbohydrate-binding module in Escherichia coli biofilms and flocs induced by bcsB overexpression.
Overexpression of bcsB was associated with abundant EPSh production and enhanced E. coli biofilm formation, which was similarly detectable by GFP-CBM3 probing. Expand
Analysis of cohesin-dockerin interactions using mutant dockerin proteins.
Results suggest that the combination of the first and second dockerin segments is important for the target recognition of Clostridium josui cohesin modules. Expand
Unusual binding properties of the dockerin module of Clostridium thermocellum endoglucanase CelJ (Cel9D-Cel44A).
The recombinant CelJ dockerin-containing protein interacted with three recombinant C. josui cohesin proteins beyond the so-called 'species specificity' of the dockerin and cohes in interactions, suggesting that the catalytic components are not necessarily arranged randomly on a scaffolding protein in native cellulosomes.

Complete Genome Sequence of Bacteriophage BC-611 Specifically Infecting Enterococcus faecalis Strain NP-10011
A virulent Siphoviridae bacteriophage isolated, specifically infecting E. faecalis strain NP-10011, was marked by its narrow host specificity and was useful for phage therapy against multidrug-resistant strains or may threaten industrial fermentation. Expand
