Bacillus subtilis fmbJ (CGMCC no.0943) was used to produce lipopeptides antibiotics fengycin. The fengycin mixture was precipitated with 6N HCl and extracted by methanol. Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry/collision-induced dissociation (ESI-MS/CID) were used to analyze the fengycin mixture. In the ESI-MS/CID spectra of fengycin molecular ions,(More)
Response surface methodology (RSM) was used to optimize a protective medium for enhancing the cell viability of Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus LB14 during freeze-drying. Using a previous Plackett–Burman design, it was found that sucrose, glycerol, sorbitol and skim milk were the most effective freeze-drying protective agents for L. bulgaricus(More)
In this study, the lipoxygenase (ana-LOX) gene from Anabaena sp. PCC 7120 was successful expressed and secreted in Bacillus subtilis. Under the control of the P43 promoter, with a signal peptide from the B. subtilis 168 nprB gene, and facilitated by the molecular chaperone PrsA, the production of the recombinant ana-LOX (ana-rLOX) reached 76 U/mL (171.9(More)
Thirty-eight high lipase activity strains were isolated from soil, seawater, and Brassica napus. Among them, a novel organic solvent tolerant bacterium (strain M36) was isolated from the seawater in Jiangsu, China. Isolate M36 was able to grow at high concentration of benzene or toluene up to 40% (vol/vol), and later identified as Staphylococcus(More)
Bacillus subtilis fmbj can produce lipopeptide antimicrobial substance, whose main components were surfactin and fengycin. In the study, the antiviral activity of antimicrobial lipopeptides (AMLs) from B. subtilis fmbj (CGMCC No. 0934) against Pseudorabies Virus (PRV), Porcine Parvovirus (PPV), Newcastle Disease Virus (NDV) and Infectious Bursal Disease(More)
BACKGROUND Error-prone polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is frequently used in directed evolution of enzymes to modify their quality. In this study, error-prone PCR was used to improve the catalytic efficiency of β-1,3-1,4-glucanase from Bacillus altitudinis YC-9. RESULTS By screening, the mutant Glu-3060 with higher activity was selected among 5000(More)
Acetaldehyde is a known mutagen and carcinogen. Active aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) represents an important mechanism for acetaldehyde detoxification. A yeast strain XJ-2 isolated from grape samples was found to produce acetaldehyde dehydrogenase with a high activity of 2.28 U/mg and identified as Issatchenkia terricola. The enzyme activity was validated(More)
Bacillus subtilis fmbR-1 was obtained from wild-type B. subtilis fmbR by replacement of the native promoter of the surfactin operon with the inducible promoter Pspac. The recombinant B. subtilis fmbR-1 produced more antibacterial substances than the wild-type strain. The overproducing phenotype was related to the enhancement of antagonistic activities(More)
Strain GB-2 is a marine microbe with broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity, isolated from soil taken from the coastal city Lianyungang in the JiangSu province of China. Analysis of its morphological, physiological, and biochemical characteristics as well as chemical components of the cell wall strongly suggested that the strain GB-2 belonged to the(More)
