Sequence analysis of an Archaeal virus isolated from a hypersaline lake in Inner Mongolia, China
The genomic sequence of a previously undescribed archaeal virus, BJ1, described in this paper has a very low sequence identity to any previously described virus. Expand
Designing and creating a modularized synthetic pathway in cyanobacterium Synechocystis enables production of acetone from carbon dioxide.
A biotechnological process that can produce acetone from CO(2), by designing and creating a modularized synthetic pathway in engineered cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. Expand
Engineering central metabolic modules of Escherichia coli for improving β-carotene production.
Combined engineering of TCA and PPP modules had a synergistic effect on improving β-carotene yield, leading to 64% increase of β-vehicle yield over a high producing parental strain. Expand
Microbial Biogeography of Six Salt Lakes in Inner Mongolia, China, and a Salt Lake in Argentina
C cultivation-independent methods were used to investigate the prokaryotic biogeography of the water column in six salt lakes in Inner Mongolia, China, and a salt lake in Argentina to discover which factors significantly influenced biotic similarity. Expand
Bacterial and archaeal diversity in two hot spring microbial mats from the geothermal region of Tengchong, China
These mats harboured clone sequences affiliated to unidentified lineages, suggesting that they are a potential source for discovering novel bacteria and archaea. Expand
Salinicoccus alkaliphilus sp. nov., a novel alkaliphile and moderate halophile from Baer Soda Lake in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China.
Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rDNA sequence comparisons indicate that strain T8T is a member of the genus Salinicoccus, a novel alkaliphilic and moderately halophilic gram-positive coccus isolated from Baer Soda Lake in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China. Expand
Efficient production of L-lactic acid from corncob molasses, a waste by-product in xylitol production, by a newly isolated xylose utilizing Bacillus sp. strain.
This study provides an encouraging means of producing L-lactic acid from lignocellulosic resource such as the low-cost corncob molasses through a newly isolated xylose utilizing Bacillus sp. Expand
Characterization and gene cloning of a novel β-mannanase from alkaliphilic Bacillus sp. N16-5
The eight conserved active-site amino acids in family 5 glycosyl hydrolase were found in the deduced amino acid sequence of strain N16-5 ManA, a purified β-mannanase purified to homogeneity from a culture broth of alkaliphilic Bacillus sp. Expand
Cloning and characterization of a thermostable and halo-tolerant endoglucanase from Thermoanaerobacter tengcongensis MB4
A β-1,4-endoglucanase cloned from the genomic DNA of saccharolytic thermophilic eubacterium Thermoanaerobacter tengcongensis MB4 and functionally expressed in Escherichia coli exhibits high residual activities in molar concentration of NaCl and KCl, and is remarkably resistant in ionic liquids.
