Identification and characterization of novel esterases from a deep-sea sediment metagenome
The characterization of Est6 revealed that it was a cold-active esterase and exhibited the highest activity toward p-nitrophenyl butyrate (C4) at 20°C and pH 7.5.
Fermentation Conditions and Properties of a Chitosanase from Acinetobacter sp. C-17
A species of bacterium with high chitosanase activity was isolated from soil samples in Haiyan City, China, and identified as an Acinetobacter species. This strain, named Acinetobacter sp. strain
Analysis of both chitinase and chitosanase produced by Sphingomonas sp. CJ-5
Results show that CJ-5 may have potential for industrial application particularly in recycling of chitin Wastes and chitosan wastes.
Thermus arciformis sp. nov., a thermophilic species from a geothermal area.
Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences and levels of DNA-DNA relatedness together indicated that the new isolates represented a novel species of the genus Thermus with closest affinity to Thermus aquaticus, Thermus igniterrae and Thermus thermophilus.
Cloning, Expression, and Characterization of a New β-Agarase from Vibrio sp. Strain CN41
ABSTRACT A new agarase, AgaACN41, cloned from Vibrio sp. strain CN41, consists of 990 amino acids, with only 49% amino acid sequence identity with known β-agarases. AgaACN41 belongs to the GH50
Brassicibacter mesophilus gen. nov., sp. nov., a strictly anaerobic bacterium isolated from food industry wastewater.
A novel mesophilic, strictly anaerobic bacterium, strain BM(T), was isolated from food industry wastewater and is proposed to represent a novel species of a new genus, Brassicibacter mesophilus gen. nov.
Marinobacterium nitratireducens sp. nov. and Marinobacterium sediminicola sp. nov., isolated from marine sediment.
Two strains, CN44(T) and CN47(T), isolated from marine sediment of the East China Sea, were characterized by using a polyphasic approach and represent two novel species within the genus Marinobacterium, for which the names Marinobacteria nitratireducens sp.
Parabacteroides chartae sp. nov., an obligately anaerobic species from wastewater of a paper mill.
On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic analysis, strain NS31-3(T) represents a novel species of the genus Parabacteroides, for which the name Parabactseroides chartae sp.
Rhamnolipid-aided biodegradation of carbendazim by Rhodococcus sp. D-1: Characteristics, products, and phytotoxicity.
Preliminary guidelines for the biological removal of carbendazim from the environment are offered after genomic analysis and the effect of the biodegradable biosurfactant rhamnolipid on the rate and extent of carb endazim degradation was assessed in batch analyses.
Alkaliphilus halophilus sp. nov., a strictly anaerobic and halophilic bacterium isolated from a saline lake, and emended description of the genus Alkaliphilus.
A novel strictly anaerobic, halophilic and fermentative strain, designated E2R(T), was isolated from sediments of Xiaokule salt lake in Xinjiang Province, China and is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Alkaliphilus.
