Two strains of xylanase-producing bacteria, S3-4A(T) and MX2-3(T), isolated from soils in Thailand, were characterized on the basis of their phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics, DNA-DNA relatedness and 16S rRNA gene sequences. The novel strains were Gram-positive, facultatively anaerobic, spore-forming, rod-shaped bacteria. They contained(More)
A xylanolytic bacterium, strain S1-3(T), was isolated from soil collected in Nan province, Thailand. It was characterized taxonomically based on phenotypic characteristics and 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison. The strain was a Gram-stain-positive, facultatively anaerobic, spore-forming, rod-shaped bacterium. It contained meso-diaminopimelic acid in the(More)
Two xylan-degrading bacteria, strains MX15-2(T) and MX21-2(T), were isolated from soils collected in Nan province, Thailand. Cells were Gram-reaction-positive, facultatively anaerobic, spore-forming and rod-shaped. They contained meso-diaminopimelic acid in the cell-wall peptidoglycan. The major menaquinone was MK-7. iso-C(16 : 0) and anteiso-C(15 : 0) were(More)
A xylan-degrading bacterium, strain X11-1(T), was isolated from soil collected in Nan province, Thailand. The strain was characterized based on its phenotypic and genotypic characteristics. Strain X11-1(T) was a Gram-stain-positive, facultatively anaerobic, spore-forming, rod-shaped bacterium. It contained meso-diaminopimelic acid in the cell-wall(More)
An arsenite-oxidizing bacterium, strain S2-3HT, was isolated from arsenic-contaminated soil sample collected from Dantchaeng district, Suphanburi province, Thailand and was characterized based on polyphasic taxonomic study. The strain was observed to be a Gram-stain negative, aerobic, yellow pigmented, non-spore forming and rod-shaped bacterium. Major(More)
A cellulose-degrading bacterium, strain FCN3-3(T), was isolated from buffalo faeces collected in Nakhonnayok province, Thailand. The strain was characterized based on its phenotypic and genotypic characteristics. Strain FCN3-3(T) was a Gram-positive, aerobic, spore-forming, rod-shaped bacterium. It contained meso-diaminopimelic acid in cell-wall(More)

Three strains of xylanase-producing bacteria, S5-3(T), X13-1(T) and MXC2-2(T), isolated from soils in Thailand, were characterized taxonomically based on their phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics and 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons. They were Gram-positive, facultatively anaerobic, spore-forming, rod-shaped bacteria. They contained(More)
Among uropathogens, uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) is the most common cause of urinary tract infection (UTI) worldwide, but clinical aspects due to this bacterial species is not fully understood in southern Thailand. Two hundred fifty-four UPEC isolates from patients admitted to Maharaj Nakhon Si Thammarat Hospital, southern Thailand were examined(More)
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an important pathogen causing nosocomial and other types of infections worldwide. In a one-year survey of patients in two tertiary hospitals, namely, Maharaj Nakhon Si Thammarat and VachiraPhuket Hospitals, southern Thailand, 64 MRSA strains (prevalence of 8.1%) were obtained mainly from the elderly (>(More)
