Two Gram-negative, motile, non-spore-forming and slightly halophilic rods (strains SW-145T and SW-156T) were isolated from sea water of the Yellow Sea in Korea. Strains SW-145T and SW-156T grew optimally at 37 and 30-37 degrees C, respectively, and in the presence of 2-6 % (w/v) NaCl. Strains SW-145T and SW-156T were chemotaxonomically characterized as(More)
A Gram-negative, motile, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain TF-22T, was isolated from an intertidal sediment in Korea. This organism grew optimally at 30-37 degrees C and in the presence of 2-5% (w/v) NaCl. It did not grow without NaCl or in the presence of more than 14% (w/v) NaCl. Strain TF-22T was characterized chemotaxonomically(More)
A Gram-positive, rod-shaped, motile and endospore-forming bacterial strain, KSL-134T, was isolated from an alkaline soil in Korea, and its taxonomic position was investigated by a polyphasic study. Strain KSL-134T grew optimally at pH 7 x 5 and 30 degrees C. Its cell wall peptidoglycan contained meso-diaminopimelic acid. Strain KSL-134T was characterized as(More)
Two Gram-negative, non-motile, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped strains, SW-2T and SW-26, were isolated from sea water of the East Sea in Korea. These organisms grew optimally at 37 degrees C and in the presence of 2-3 % (w/v) NaCl. They did not grow without NaCl or in the presence of >9 % (w/v) NaCl. Strains SW-2T and SW-26 were characterized(More)
A Gram-negative, non-spore-forming, yellow-pigmented, slightly halophilic bacterial strain, SW-109(T), was isolated from a tidal flat of the Yellow Sea in Korea, and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. This isolate did not produce bacteriochlorophyll a and contained ubiquinone-10 as the predominant respiratory lipoquinone and C(18 : 1)omega7c as the(More)
Two Gram-negative, motile, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped organisms, strains SW-117(T) and SW-120(T), were isolated from sea water of the Yellow Sea in Korea and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. Strains SW-117(T) and SW-120(T) simultaneously contained both menaquinones (MK) and ubiquinones (Q) as isoprenoid quinones; the predominant menaquinone was(More)
Two Gram-positive bacterial strains, CM2104(T) and CM2110, isolated from the inner part of abnormally spoiled oriental melon (Cucumis melo) in Korea, were subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. The cell-wall peptidoglycan of strains CM2104(T) and CM2110 contained meso-diaminopimelic acid as the diagnostic diamino acid. The predominant menaquinone was(More)
A mesophilic strain, designated A 9500T, was isolated from a soil sample collected from Sobaek Mountain, South Korea, and its taxonomic position was investigated by using a polyphasic approach. The novel strain grew well on different ISP media and no diffusible pigments were produced. The optimum temperature for growth was 32 degrees C. The aerial mycelium(More)
Amentoflavone, which is a biflavone derived from various plants, has been known to possess various biological activities including anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory activity. In the previous study, we reported antifungal effect of amentoflavone isolated from an ethyl acetate extract of Selaginella tamariscina on human pathogenic fungi. Amentoflavone(More)
Bealmijang is a short-term aged paste made from meju, which is a brick of fermented soybeans and other ingredients. Different types of bealmijang are available depending on the geographic region or ingredients used. However, no study has clarified the microbial diversity of these types. We identified 17 and 14 fungal species from black soybean meju (BSM)(More)
