Oryza meyeriana is a wild species of rice with high resistance to Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo), but the resistance mechanism is poorly understood. Protein gel blot analysis and immuno-gold electron microscopy showed that Xoo infection induced an association of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) activase (RCA) with the thylakoid(More)
In the present study, the alterations in uncoupling protein 2 (UCP2) expression following hypothermic preservation in rat hearts were investigated. Isolated rat hearts were preserved in Celsior solution for 3‑12 h followed by 60 min of reperfusion. The cardiac function was evaluated using the Langendorff perfusion system. UCP2 and silent mating type(More)
In order to realize resource recycling of kitchen waste, the enhancement of fermentative production of lactic acid (LA) by a strain of amylolytic lactic acid bacterium (ALAB) isolated from kitchen waste was investigated. A total of 6 strains of ALAB were isolated from anaerobically fermented kitchen waste. Among these isolates, the strain FH164 exhibited(More)
A novel Gram-stain-negative, aerobic and rod-shaped bacterial strain, designated 65T, was isolated from surface-sterilized root tissue of maize, collected from Fangshan District of Beijing, People's Republic of China, and was subjected to a taxonomic study by using a polyphasic approach. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that(More)
A novel Gram-positive, aerobic, motile, endospore-forming, rod-shaped bacterium, designated 373T was isolated from surface-sterilised root tissue of a maize planted in Fangshan District of Beijing, Peopole’s Republic of China. A polyphasic taxonomic study was performed on the new isolate. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity studies, this(More)
A novel Gram-stain positive, aerobic, non-motile, non-spore-forming and rod-shaped strain designated 1204T was isolated from surface-sterilised stem tissue of maize planted in Fangshan District of Beijing, People’s Republic of China. A polyphasic taxonomic study was performed on the new isolate. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity studies,(More)
A novel Gram-staining-negative, aerobic and rod-shaped strain designated 541T was isolated from surface-sterilized root tissue of maize, collected from the Fangshan District of Beijing, People's Republic of China, and was subjected to a taxonomic study using a polyphasic approach. According to a phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences, strain(More)
A novel Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped strain designated PG04(T) was isolated from the rhizosphere of watermelon plants cultivated in Beijing, China. A polyphasic taxonomic study was performed on the new isolate. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity studies, isolate PG04(T) belonged clearly to the genus Hansschlegelia and was most(More)
A 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate deaminase producing bacterium, designated GXGD002T, was isolated from the rhizosphere of banana plants cultivated in Guangxi province, China. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain GXGD002T is a member of the genus Variovorax. High levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity are found(More)
In recent years, haze has been observed frequently in Beijing. Haze was one of the atmospheric phenomena caused by the accumulation of particulate matter. As an important fraction of particular matter, bioaerosol could potentially cause significantly negative health effects. In this study, we detected the concentration and size distribution of viable(More)
