A lead binding protein was purified from the culture filtrate of Streptomyces subrutilus P5. The subunit and native molecular weights were estimated to be 28 and 55 kDa, respectively, indicating that the protein was composed of two identical subunits. The inhibition pattern, the metal content analysis and the EPR spectrum confirmed that the protein was a(More)
We have investigated the distribution of airborne pollen at the different eleven points in Japan from 1987 to 1998 using gravity sampler. To clarify the characteristics causative pollen for Japanese cedar pollinosis, we examined annual change of pollen counts, dispersing period and geographical difference of C. japonica and Cupressaceae pollen.
