Clostridium cellulovorans 743B was isolated from a wood chip pile and is an anaerobic and mesophilic spore-forming bacterium. This organism degrades native substrates in soft biomass such as corn fiber and rice straw efficiently by producing an extracellular enzyme complex called the cellulosome. Here we report the genome sequence of C. cellulovorans 743B.
In a recent article Pillai (1990, Ann. Inst. Statist. Math., 42, 157-161) showed that the distribution 1-E~(-x~), 0 < c~ _< 1; 0 _< x, where E~(x) is the Mittag-Lettter function, is infinitely divisible and geometrically infinitely divisible. He also clarified the relation between this distribution and a stable distribution. In the present paper, we… (More)
Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris, an obligate aerobe and one of the most harmful bacteria in acidic beverages, requires oxygen for growth. However, the relationship between oxygen availability and its growth has not yet been quantified. We examined the correlation between A. acidoterrestris growth and oxygen availability to determine whether A.… (More)
As bacteriophages are dependent on the host for multiplication, their infection cycle is expected to be influenced by the host’s physiological state. To elucidate how and which steps of the bacteriophage infection cycle are influenced by changes in the physiological state of the host, we quantitatively compared the infection cycle of lytic RNA bacteriophage… (More)
