Molecular structures of 10 metabolites, which were isolated from urine (M1-M8) or bile (M9 and M10) after administration of AY4166 (N-(trans-4-isopropylcyclohexanecarbonyl)-D-phenylalanine), a novel amino acid derivative with hypoglycemic activity, have been elucidated by mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance. Four of these (M1, M2, M3 and M8)(More)
Paenibacillus amylolyticusstrain Heshi-A3 was isolated in Fukui prefecture, Japan, from fermented rice bran in Heshiko, a traditional dish that is produced by aging salted mackerel with fresh rice bran at an ambient temperature for around 7 months to over one year. Here, we report the draft genome sequence ofPaenibacillus amylolyticusstrain Heshi-A3.
Two different techniques for genomic DNA fragmentation before microsatellite-enriched library construction-restriction enzyme (NlaIII and MseI) digestion and sonication-were compared to examine their effects on simple sequence repeat (SSR) detection using high-throughput sequencing. Tens of thousands of SSR regions from 5 species of the plant family(More)
To confirm the formation of gamma-glutamyl-beta-alanylhistidine and related peptide, a model solution (amide-containing amino acids and carnosine) has been heated, and the products are investigated. Spectroscopical analysis indicates that the major product from asparagine and carnosine is beta-aspartyl-beta-alanylhistidine, and that from glutamine and(More)
