TLDR
On the basis of evidence presented in this study, it is proposed that the four species in the L. fructosum subcluster, Leuconostoc durionis, Leurinostoc ficulneum, LeUconostOC fructOSum and Leu Conostoc pseudoficulneus, should be transferred to a novel genus, Fructobacillus gen. nov. Expand
A Mucus Adhesion Promoting Protein, MapA, Mediates the Adhesion of Lactobacillus reuteri to Caco-2 Human Intestinal Epithelial Cells
TLDR
Quantitative analysis of the adhesion of L. reuteri strains to Caco-2 cells showed that these strains bind not only to mucus but also to intestinal epithelial cells, and far-western analysis indicated the existence of multiple receptor-like molecules in Caco -2 cells. Expand
Lactobacillus acidipiscis sp. nov. and Weissella thailandensis sp. nov., isolated from fermented fish in Thailand.
TLDR
Two new species of lactic acid bacteria were isolated from fermented fish in Thailand on the basis of phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequences, DNA relatedness and phenotypic characteristics. Expand
Lactobacillus plantarum possesses the capability for wall teichoic acid backbone alditol switching
TLDR
The study presented here correlates structural differences in WTA to their functional characteristics, thereby providing important information aiding to improve the understanding of molecular host-microbe interactions and probiotic functionality. Expand
Identification of lactic acid bacteria from fermented tea leaves (miang) in Thailand and proposals of Lactobacillus thailandensis sp. nov., Lactobacillus camelliae sp. nov., and Pediococcus siamensis
TLDR
The isolates isolated from fermented tea leaves produced in the northern part of Thailand showed high DNA-DNA similarity for each other and MCH4-2 was closest to Lactobacillus fermentum CECT 562(T) with 99.5% of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity. Expand
Lactobacillus satsumensis sp. nov., isolated from mashes of shochu, a traditional Japanese distilled spirit made from fermented rice and other starchy materials.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • International journal of systematic and…
  • 2005
TLDR
Levels of DNA-DNA relatedness revealed genotypic separation of the four isolates from the above two species, and they are considered to represent a novel species, for which the name Lactobacillus satsumensis is proposed. Expand
Oenococcus kitaharae sp. nov., a non-acidophilic and non-malolactic-fermenting oenococcus isolated from a composting distilled shochu residue.
  • A. Endo, S. Okada
  • Biology, Medicine
  • International journal of systematic and…
  • 1 October 2006
TLDR
Six strains of lactic acid bacteria were isolated in Japan from a composting distilled shochu residue and revealed that the isolates belonged to the same taxon and were genetically separate from O. oeni. Expand
Characterization and emended description of Lactobacillus kunkeei as a fructophilic lactic acid bacterium.
TLDR
On the basis of the evidence gathered in this study, the type strain of L. kunkeei is recognized as a member of the 'obligately' fructophilic lactic acid bacteria. Expand
Lactic acid bacteria found in fermented fish in Thailand.
TLDR
The distribution of these bacteria in fermented fish in Thailand is discussed and the amount of cellular fatty acids of C16:0 and C18:1, and the DNA base compositions were significant for differentiating the strains in Groups II and III. Expand
Monitoring the lactic acid bacterial diversity during shochu fermentation by PCR-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis.

  • 1 March 2005
TLDR
It was found that the LAB community composition during shochu fermentation changed after the main ingredient and water were added during the fermentation process, confirming that PCR-DGGE using all three primers specific for groups of LAB together was well suited to the study of the LLAB diversity in shochU mashes.
