Eight strains of aerobic, spore-forming, Gram-positive, moderately halophilic bacteria were isolated from sauce (nam-pla and bu-du) produced in Thailand by the fermentation of fish. They grew optimally in the presence of 10 % NaCl, at 37 degrees C and pH 7.0. A diagnostic diamino acid, meso-diaminopimelic acid, was present in the cell-wall peptidoglycan.(More)
Interactions between the protease (PR) encoded by the xenotropic murine leukemia virus-related virus and a number of potential inhibitors have been investigated by biochemical and structural techniques. It was observed that several inhibitors used clinically against HIV PR exhibit nanomolar or even subnanomolar values of K(i) , depending on the exact(More)
In order to find a unique proteinase, proteinase-producing bacteria were screened from fish sauce in Thailand. An isolated moderately halophilic bacterium was classified and named Filobacillus sp. RF2-5. The molecular weight of the purified enzyme was estimated to be 49 kDa. The enzyme showed the highest activity at 60 degrees C and pH 10-11 under 10% NaCl,(More)
