A production system of UDP-N-acetylglucosamine (UDP-GlcNAc) was established by using recombinant Escherichia coli and Corynebacterium ammoniagenes in combination. E. coli overexpressed the UDP-GlcNAc biosynthetic genes, glmM, glmU, glk, ppa, ack, and pta, whereas C. ammoniagenes contributed to the formation of UTP from orotic acid. Glucose 1,6-diphosphate(More)
A group B streptococcus, Streptococcus agalactiae type Ib, produces a high-molecular-weight polysaccharide consisting of the following pentasaccharide repeating unit: -->4)-[alpha-D-NeupNAc-(2-->3)-beta-D-Galp-(1-->3)-beta-D-GlcpNAc-(1-->3)]-beta-D-Galp-(1-->4)-beta-D-Glcp-(1-->. The type-specific capsular polysaccharide (CP) synthesis (cps) genes of this(More)
Group B streptococci, Streptococcus agalactiae, produce high-molecular-weight polysaccharides containing N-acetylneuraminic acid. Although the type-specific capsular polysaccharide (CP) synthesis (cps) genes of several S. agalactiae strains have been extensively analyzed, to date, no sialyltransferase activity has been detected from any gene product of the(More)
Establishment of electromagnetic compatibility is important in use of electronic medical equipment in hospitals. To evaluate the electromagnetic environment, the electric field intensity induced by electromagnetic radiation in broadcasting spectra coming from outside the hospital was measured in a new hospital building before any patients visited the(More)
