A 6 kbp SphI fragment encoding genes for the enzymes alpha-acetolactate synthase (ALS), alpha-acetolactate decarboxylase (ALDC) and meso-2,3-butanediol dehydrogenase (meso-BDH), involved in the formation of meso-2,3-butanediol (meso-BD) from pyruvic acid, was cloned into plasmid pUC118. When derivatives of this plasmid were introduced into Escherichia coli(More)
The National BioResource Project (NBRP) is a Japanese project that aims to establish a system for collecting, preserving and providing bioresources for use as experimental materials for life science research. It is promoted by 27 core resource facilities, each concerned with a particular group of organisms, and by one information center. The NBRP database(More)
A new class of nucleobase-binding fluorescent ligand, ND-DOTA in which 2-amino-5,7-dimethyl-1.8-naphthyridine (ND) is conjugated with 1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-1,4,7-triacetic acid (DOTA) by an amide linker, was synthesized. On the basis of the experimental results obtained from the DNA melting analysis and fluorescent measurement, ND-DOTA-Tb (III)(More)
Genomic analysis was performed on seven strains of Bifidobacterium thermacidophilum, a Sus-associated Bifidobacterium. Three strains from the feces of domestic pigs (Sus scrofa domesticus) and four strains from the rectal feces of free-range Japanese wild boars (S. s. scrofa) were compared. The phylogenetic position of these isolates suggested by genomic(More)
