Effect of gene disruptions of the TCA cycle on production of succinic acid in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
TLDR
Results indicate that succinate, fumarate and malate are mainly synthesized through the TCA cycle (oxidative direction) even in the presence of glucose at a concentration as high as 15%. Expand
Purification, molecular cloning and functional characterization of flavonoid C-glucosyltransferases from Fagopyrum esculentum M. (buckwheat) cotyledon.
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of plant glycosyl transferases shows that flavonoid C-glycosyltransferases form a different clade with other functionally analyzed plant Glycosyl Transferases. Expand
Purification and Characterization of Chitosanase and Exo-β-D-Glucosaminidase from a Koji Mold, Aspergillus oryzae IAM2660
TLDR
Two chitosanolytic enzymes were purified from the culture fluid of Aspergillus oryzae IAM2660 and showed the endo- and exo-type cleavage manner for the 40-kDa and 135-k da enzymes, respectively. Expand
Purification and Characterization of a Novel Bacteriocin Produced by Enterococcus faecalis Strain RJ-11
TLDR
Lactic acid bacteria exhibiting activity against the gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis were isolated from rice bran and a bacteriocin purified from culture fluid exhibited high levels of similarity to the sequences of enterocins produced by Enterococcus faecium. Expand
Chitosanase from the Plant Pathogenic Fungus, Fusarium solani f. sp. Phaseoli-Purification and Some Properties.
TLDR
Among 162 strains of the genus Fusarium tested, 22 strains, mainly from F. solani and F. splendens, formed halos on chitosan-containing agar medium and inhibited cell growth completely and abolished production of chitOSanase when used as a carbon source in the liquid medium. Expand
Cloning, Expression, and Characterization of a Chitinase from the Chitinolytic Bacterium Aeromonas hydrophila Strain SUWA-9
TLDR
The chitinolytic bacterium Aeromonas hydrophila strain SUWA-9, which was isolated from freshwater in Lake Suwa (Nagano Prefecture, Japan), produced several kinds of chitin-degrading enzymes, including chiA, which showed high similarity to those of bacterial chit inases classified into family 18 of glycosyl hydrolases. Expand
Chitiniphilus shinanonensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel chitin-degrading bacterium belonging to Betaproteobacteria.
TLDR
A bacterial strain capable of degrading chitin, strain SAY3T, was isolated from moat water of Ueda Castle in Nagano Prefecture, Japan and should be classified under a new genus and a new species. Expand
Effect of administration with the extract of Gymnema sylvestre R. Br leaves on lipid metabolism in rats.
TLDR
It was suggested that GE improved serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels through influence over a wide range of lipid metabolism in rats through influencing cecal fermentation and that propionic acid and acetic acid contents in cecum were significantly increased by GE. Expand
Purification, Cloning, and Sequence Analysis of β-N-Acetylglucosaminidase from the Chitinolytic Bacterium Aeromonas hydrophila Strain SUWA-9
TLDR
A chitinolytic bacterium isolated from Lake Suwa and identified as Aeromonas hydrophila strain SUWA-9 grew well on a synthetic medium containing colloidal chitin as sole carbon source and showed a high similarity to those of bacterial β-N-acetylhexosaminidases classified in family 20 of glycosyl hydrolases. Expand
Gene Cloning, Expression, and Characterization of a Second β-N-Acetylglucosaminidase from the Chitinolytic Bacterium Aeromonas hydrophila Strain SUWA-9
TLDR
A gene coding for a second β-N-acetylglucosaminidase (nagB) was isolated from the chitinolytic bacterium Aeromonas hydrophila strain SUWA-9, and reverse transcription-mediated PCR analysis revealed that nagB was transcribed when SUwa-9 cells were grown in the presence of colloidal chitin. Expand
