Cloning, expression, and characterization of a thermostable glucoamylase from Thermoanaerobacter tengcongensis MB4
A thermostable glucoamylase (TtcGA) from Thermoanaerobacter tengcongensis MB4 was successfully expressed in Escherichia coli. The full-length gene (2112 bp) encodes a 703-amino acid polypeptideExpand

The substrate/product-binding modes of a novel GH120 β-xylosidase (XylC) from Thermoanaerobacterium saccharolyticum JW/SL-YS485
Xylan-1,4-β-xylosidase (β-xylosidase) hydrolyses xylo-oligomers at their non-reducing ends into individual xylose units. Recently, XylC, a β-xylosidase from Thermoanaerobacterium saccharolyticumExpand

Establishment and characterization of a fish-cell line from the brain of Japanese flounder Paralichthys olivaceus.
A new brain-cell line derived from Japanese flounder Paralichthys olivaceus (POBC) was established. POBC was subcultured for 67 passages over the course of 420 days. The cultured cells were primarilyExpand
