We isolated Acanthogobius hasta mitochondrial DNA by long-polymerase chain reaction (long-PCR) with conserved primers, and sequenced this mitogenome with primer walking. The resultant A. hasta mitochondrial DNA sequence was found to consist of 16,663 bp with a structural organization conserved relative to that of other fish. In this paper, we report the(More)
Tricholoma matsutake, an ectomycorrhiza that has mutual relationships with the rootlet of Pinus denisflora, forms a fruiting body that serves as a valuable food in Asia. However, the artificial culture of this fungus has not been successful. Soil fungi, including T. matsutake, coexist with many other microorganisms and plants; therefore, complex microbial(More)
To use two small fish Rivulus marmoratus (Cyprinodontiformes, Rivulidae) and the Japanese medaka Oryzias latipes (Belloniformes) as testing models in molecular ecotoxicology, we have cloned the cytochrome P450 1A (CYP1A) gene after screening of both genomic DNA libraries, and sequenced 11,863 and 7,243 bp including all the exons and introns with promoter(More)
A 2.3 kDa of antimicrobial peptide was purified from an acidified liver extract of skipjack tuna, Katsuwonus pelamis, by preparative acid-urea-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and C18 reversed-phase HPLC. A comparison of the amino acid sequence of the purified peptide with those of other known polypeptides revealed high homology with the C-terminus of(More)
We isolated floating goby Gymnogobius petschiliensis mitochondrial DNA by long-polymerase chain reaction (Long-PCR) with conserved primers, and sequenced the mitogenome by primer walking using flanking sequences. The G. petschiliensis mitochondrial DNA has 16,424 bp and its structural organization is similar to the mitochondrial DNAs of other fish, and(More)
We synthesized a cDNA library from the intertidal copepod Tigriopus japonicus, converted it to phagemids and sequenced expressed sequence tags (ESTs). Of these, Tigriopus translationally controlled tumor protein/histamine releasing factor (TCTP/HRF) was further characterized. The Tigriopus TCTP/HRF gene encoded 172 amino acid residues and showed high(More)
We have cloned the proto-oncogene c-fos from a self-fertilizing fish Rivulus marmoratus (Cyprinodontiformes, Rivulidae) after screening of R. marmoratus lambdaGEM-11 genomic DNA library, and sequenced over 12 kb including all exons, introns and the promoter region. The R. marmoratus c-fos gene consisted of one noncoding exon and four exons with high(More)
The ectomycorrhizal fungus Tricholoma matsutake grows symbiotically with Pinus densiflora. Phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (E.C. 4.3.1.24) catalyzes the conversion of L-phenylalanine to trans-cinnamic acid. The role of fungal phenylalanine ammonia-lyase, however, has not been clear until now. In this study, the gene encoding phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL),(More)
The Tigriopus japonicus beta-actin genes were amplified from genomic DNA by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and cloned into pCRII vector. Several clones of the T. japonicus beta-actin gene spanned 1662-1676 bp with gains or losses of some bases in intron 3 or 4 but they consisted generally of 5 exons and 4 introns with very high homology, implying(More)
Tricholoma matsutake is an ectomycorrhizal fungus belonging to the class Agaricomycetes and the phylum Basidiomycota. Here, we report the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of T. matsutake. The mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of T. matsutake seems to be concatenated, and harbors 76,037 nucleotides, with an overall GC content of 20.69%. The mtDNA comprises 15(More)
