A bacterial strain with high cellulase activity (0.26 U/ml culture medium) was isolated from hot spring, and classified and named as B. subtilis DR by morphological and 16SrDNA gene sequence analysis. A thermostable endocellulase, CelDR, was purified from the isolated strain. The optimum temperature of the enzyme reaction was 50 degrees C, and CelDR(More)
Take-all disease of wheat caused by the soilborne fungus Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici is one of the most important root diseases of wheat worldwide. Bacteria were isolated from winter wheat from irrigated and rainfed fields in Hebei and Jiangsu provinces in China, respectively. Samples from rhizosphere soil, roots, stems, and leaves were plated onto(More)
PiggyBac (PB) has recently been found to be functional in various organisms. To verify and exploit its application in the cashmere goat, a PB transposon system including donor and helper vector of was developed, in which the EGFP gene in donor of vector was used as reporter. Cashmere goat fetal fibroblasts cells (GFFs) were transfected with the PB(More)
Pseudomonas fluorescens HC1-07, previously isolated from the phyllosphere of wheat grown in Hebei province, China, suppresses the soilborne disease of wheat take-all, caused by Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici. We report here that strain HC1-07 also suppresses Rhizoctonia root rot of wheat caused by Rhizoctonia solani AG-8. Strain HC1-07 produced a(More)
Here, we present the electroporation as a feasible and efficient method for introducing circularized and linearized DNA into Bacillus subtilis chromosome. Two integration experiments were carried out and demonstrated the feasibility and efficiency of electroporation to introduce the target DNA into the B. subtilis chromosome. By using of electroporation, a(More)
In this study, we have developed a novel, versatile signal peptide probe vector driven by promoter P43 in Bacillus subtilis WB700, using Penicillin G Acylase (PGA) as reporter. Twenty-four signal peptides considered belonging to twin-arginine translocation (Tat) pathway were cloned into the probe vector to direct the secretion expression of PGA,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association of three single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the complement factor H (CFH), KIAA1109, and interleukin-27 (IL-27) genes in patients with anterior uveitis (AU). METHODS A case-control study was performed in 98 Chinese AU patients and 308 healthy controls. Three SNPs including CFH-rs800292, KIAA1109-rs4505848,(More)
An alkaline active xylanase, XynBYG, was purified from an alkaliphilic Bacillus pumilus BYG, which was newly isolated from paper mill effluent. It had an optimum pH of 8.0-9.0, and showed good stability after incubated at pH 9.0 for 120 min. The optimum temperature for the activity was 50°C, and the enzyme retained below 55% of its original activity for 30(More)
Here, two temperature sensitive promoters, P2 and P7, isolated from Bacillus subtilis, were characterized. The production of beta-galactosidase driven by these promoters was much higher at 45 degrees C than that at 37 degrees C both in Escherichia coli and B. subtilis and that the P2 promoter showed higher expression strength in B. subtilis at 45 degrees C.(More)
A new strong promoter fragment isolated from Bacillus subtilis was identified and characterized. Using the heat stable beta-galactosidase as reporter, the promoter fragment exhibited high expression strength both in Escherichia coli and B. subtilis. The typical prokaryotic promoter conservation regions were found in the promoter fragment and the putative(More)
