A Gram-stain-negative, motile bacterium with two lateral flagella, designated strain B201(T), was isolated from beach sand from the Taean coast in South Korea. Cells were ovoid rods and positive for catalase and oxidase. Growth of strain B201(T) was observed between 15 and 45 °C (optimum, 30 °C) and between pH 5.0 and 9.0 (optimum, pH 6.0-7.5). Strain(More)
A Gram-staining-negative, strictly aerobic bacterium, designated strain G3(T), was isolated from a tidal flat of the Taean coast in South Korea. Cells were moderately halotolerant and non-motile rods showing catalase- and oxidase-positive reactions. Growth of strain G3(T) was observed between 15 and 40 °C (optimum 30 °C) and between pH 5.5 and 9.0 (optimum(More)
An immunosuppressant tacrolimus-producing strain of Streptomyces sp. TST8 was isolated and developed by the TS corporation in Korea using the sequential adaptation of media containing tacrolimus (600-1600 mg/l). The aim of the tacrolimus sequential adaptation protocol was to select those cells with tacrolimus resistance and to reduce product inhibition of(More)
Fermented red pepper paste (FRPP) is one of the most well-known traditional foods in Korea. The effects of FRPP in experimental animals and adipocytes have been previously reported. However, the biochemical effects have not yet been validated in humans with various genetic backgrounds and environmental factors. In this study, 28 female volunteers (body mass(More)
This research examines the acid hydrolysis of Curcuma longa waste, to obtain the hydrolysate containing lactic acid and ethanol fermentative sugars. A central composite design for describing regression equations of variables was used. The selected optimum condition was 4.91% sulphuric acid, 122.68°C and 50 min using the desirability function under the(More)
A novel method is proposed to produce a soluble recombinant antigen mimic, constituted with full-length HA1 and truncated HA2 individually expressed in E. coli, instead of a precursor form of hemagglutinin protein, that is similar to the naturally processed and disulfide-linked HA1/HA2 on the envelope of the influenza A virus strain X-31 (H3N2). A truncated(More)
14-3-3 proteins are pSer/pThr-binding proteins that interact with a wide array of cellular ‘client’ proteins. The plant brassinosteroids (BRs) receptor, BRASSINOSTEROID INSENSITIVE 1 (BRI1), is a member of the large family of leucine-rich repeat receptor-like kinases (LRR-RLKs) that contain cytoplasmic protein kinase domains. At least two LRR-RLKs are(More)
Continuous treatment with parathyroid hormone (PTH) or excess endogenous PTH due to primary hyperparathyroidism causes increased bone resorption and, subsequently, decreased bone volume. Our previous studies showed that myeloid Elf-1-like factor (MEF) not only suppresses osteoblast differentiation through inhibition of Runx2 activity and other(More)
