The diversity of culturable organotrophic bacteria from local solar salterns.
TLDR
Three new species candidates were found, based on similarities of the 16S rDNA sequences to those of previously published species, among moderately halophilic bacteria inhabiting solar saltern ponds in Taean-Gun, Chungnam Province, Korea.
A culture-based study of the bacterial communities within the guts of nine longicorn beetle species and their exo-enzyme producing properties for degrading xylan and pectin.
TLDR
Considerable proportions of xylanase and pectinase producing bacteria in the guts of the longicorn beetles implied that the bacteria may play an important role in the digestion of woody diets.
Amplification of mitochondrial small subunit ribosomal DNA of polypores and its potential for phylogenetic analysis
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships were resolved quite efficiently by mt SSU rDNA sequences, and they proved to be more useful in phylogenetic reconstruction of Ganoderma than nuclear internal transcribed spacer (ITS) r DNA sequences.
Phellinsin A, a novel chitin synthases inhibitor produced by Phellinus sp. PL3.
TLDR
This compound showed antifungal activity against Colletotrichum lagenarium, Pyricularia oryzae, Rhizoctonia solani, Aspergillus fumigatus, and Trichophyton mentagrophytes.
Paenibacillus pueri sp. nov., isolated from Pu'er tea.
TLDR
Pu'er tea is a fermented drink made from the leaves of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis, and two novel bacteria, designated strains b09i-3(T) and b13i-1, were isolated during the process of fermentation of this tea, considered to represent a novel species of the genus Paenibacillus.
Paenibacillus pectinilyticus sp. nov., isolated from the gut of Diestrammena apicalis.
TLDR
During a search for exo-enzyme-producing bacteria in the gut of an insect, Diestrammena apicalis, a novel bacterium capable of degrading pectin was isolated, and strain RCB-08(T) is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Paenibacillus.
Pedobacter luteus sp. nov., isolated from soil.
TLDR
Two strains of Gram-staining-negative, rod-shaped bacteria that were motile by gliding, N7d-4(T) and B4a-b5, were isolated during a study of culturable bacteria in soil cultivated with potatoes and considered to represent a novel species of the genus Pedobacter.
