Purification and Properties of Extracellular Amylase from the Hyperthermophilic Archaeon Thermococcus profundus DT5432.
A hyperthermophilic archaeon, Thermococcus profundus DT5432, produced extracellular thermostable amylases. One of the amylases (amylase S) was purified to homogeneity by ammonium sulfateExpand

Antagonistic Interaction between Systemic Acquired Resistance and the Abscisic Acid–Mediated Abiotic Stress Response in Arabidopsis[W]
Systemic acquired resistance (SAR) is a potent innate immunity system in plants that is effective against a broad range of pathogens. SAR development in dicotyledonous plants, such as tobaccoExpand

Classification of 'Nocardioides fulvus' IFO 14399 and Nocardioides sp. ATCC 39419 in Kribbella gen. nov., as Kribbella flavida sp. nov. and Kribbella sandramycini sp. nov.
By 16S rDNA sequence analysis, two strains identified previously as members of the genus Nocardioides, namely 'Nocardioides fulvus' IFO 14399 and Nocardioides sp. ATCC 39419, were found to form linesExpand

Intra- and Interspecific Comparisons of Bacterial Diversity and Community Structure Support Coevolution of Gut Microbiota and Termite Host
ABSTRACT We investigated the bacterial gut microbiota from 32 colonies of wood-feeding termites, comprising four Microcerotermes species (Termitidae) and four Reticulitermes speciesExpand

Molecular analysis of bacterial microbiota in the gut of the termite Reticulitermes speratus (Isoptera; Rhinotermitidae).
The molecular diversity and community structure of bacteria from the gut of the termite Reticulitermes speratus were analyzed by the sequencing of near-full-length 16S rRNA genes, amplified byExpand

Characterization of a gene responsible for the Na+/H+ antiporter system of alkalophilic Bacillus species strain C‐125
An alkali‐sensitive mutant, 38154, of the alkalophilic Bacillus sp. strain C‐125 could not grow at an alkaline pH. The nucleotide sequence of a 3.7 kb parental DNA fragment that recovers the growthExpand

Complete genome of the uncultured Termite Group 1 bacteria in a single host protist cell
Termites harbor a symbiotic gut microbial community that is responsible for their ability to thrive on recalcitrant plant matter. The community comprises diverse microorganisms, most of which are asExpand

Bacterial Genes in the Aphid Genome: Absence of Functional Gene Transfer from Buchnera to Its Host
Genome reduction is typical of obligate symbionts. In cellular organelles, this reduction partly reflects transfer of ancestral bacterial genes to the host genome, but little is known about geneExpand
