Haliangium ochraceum gen. nov., sp. nov. and Haliangium tepidum sp. nov.: novel moderately halophilic myxobacteria isolated from coastal saline environments.
Phenotypic and phylogenetic studies were performed on two myxobacterial strains, SMP-2 and SMP-10, isolated from coastal regions. The two strains are morphologically similar, in that both produceExpand

Plesiocystis pacifica gen. nov., sp. nov., a marine myxobacterium that contains dihydrogenated menaquinone, isolated from the Pacific coasts of Japan.
Two strains of a novel myxobacterium (designated SIR-1T and SHI-1) were isolated from Japanese coasts located in the Pacific subtropical zone. Cells of both strains were Gram-negative, rod-shaped andExpand

Enhygromyxa salina gen. nov., sp. nov., a slightly halophilic myxobacterium isolated from the coastal areas of Japan.
Six isolates of novel marine myxobacteria, designated strains SHK-1T, SMK-1-1, SMK-1-3, SMK-10, SKK-2, and SMP-6, were obtained from various coastal samples (mud, sands and algae) collected aroundExpand

Isolation of myxobacteria from the marine environment.
In an attempt to isolate indigenous marine myxobacteria from coastal samples, we obtained two swarm forming bacteria. Both isolates formed cell aggregates which, at least in one isolate, developed toExpand

Isolation and phylogenetic analysis of aerobic copiotrophic ultramicrobacteria from urban soil.
Free-living, aerobic, copiotrophic ultramicrobacteria (UMB) that passed through a 0.45 &mgr;m membrane filter and had a cell volume of less than 0.3 &mgr;m(3) were isolated from polluted urban soilExpand

Factors Influencing Changes in Hemoglobin A1c and Body Weight During Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes With Ipragliflozin: Interim Analysis of the ASSIGN-K Study
Background Ipragliflozin is a selective sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor that blocks glucose reabsorption in the proximal tubules. SGLT2 inhibitors are expected to be effective inExpand

Polymorphisms of TNFα, IL1β, and IL1RN genes in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Abstract It is recognized that genetic factors play a role in the susceptibility to COPD. COPD is characterized by airflow limitation. Chronic inflammation causes small airway disease and parenchymalExpand

Assembly of the cochlear gap junction macromolecular complex requires connexin 26.
Hereditary deafness affects approximately 1 in 2,000 children. Mutations in the gene encoding the cochlear gap junction protein connexin 26 (CX26) cause prelingual, nonsyndromic deafness and areExpand
