A total of 59 bacterial strains were isolated from ripe fruits and vegetables and tested for their ability to produce cellulose. Only one identified as Rhodococcus sp. MI 2 based on its taxonomic characteristics and 16S rDNA sequence analysis. The glucose was the only product of digestion by cellulase confirmed by TLC and reversed phase HPLC. Rhodococcus(More)
A novel type of fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) combinatorial libraries were used for the characterization of alkaline serine proteinase produced from Rubrivivax gelatinosus KDDS1. This enzyme was the first serine proteinase characterized from photosynthetic bacteria. The proteinase was found to prefer Met and Phe at the P1 position, Ile and(More)
In order to reduce the protein content of wastewater, photosynthetic bacteria producing proteinases were screened from wastewater of various sources and stocked in culture. An isolated strain, KDDS1, was identified as Rubrivivax gelatinosus, a purple nonsulfur bacterium that secretes proteinase under micro-aerobic conditions under light at 35 degrees C.(More)
Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a halophilic bacterium that causes seafood-borne gastroenteritis which can occur through direct or cross-contamination. In this study, biosurfactant-producing marine bacteria were isolated from 28 soil samples collected from mangrove and coastal regions. Using the cross streak technique, 26 isolates were found to inhibit the(More)
An alkaline serine-proteinase from Bacillus sp. PN51 isolated from bat feces collected in Phang Nga, Thailand, was purified and characterized. The molecular mass was estimated to be 35.0 kDa. The N-terminal 25 amino acid sequence was about 70% identical with that of Natrialba magadii halolysin-like extracellular serine protease. The enzyme showed the(More)
