The growth of red pepper plants was enhanced by treatment with the rhizobacterium, Bacillus cereus MJ-1. Red pepper shoots showed a 1.38-fold increase in fresh weight (fw) and roots showed a 1.28-fold fw gain. This plant growth-promoting rhizobacterium (PGPR) has been reported to produce gibberellins (GAs). Other GAs-producing rhizobacteria, Bacillus(More)
Using the x-ray structure of the glycerol 3-phosphate transporter (GlpT), we devised a model for the distantly related oxalate transporter, OxlT. The model accommodates all earlier biochemical information on OxlT, including the idea that Lys-355 lies on the permeation pathway, and predicts that Lys-355 and a second positive center, Arg-272, comprise the(More)
A gene responsible for the chlorothalonil biotransformation was cloned from the chromosomal DNA of Ochrobactrum anthropi SH35B, capable of efficiently dissipating the chlorothalonil. The gene encoding glutathione S-transferase (GST) of O. anthropi SH35B was expressed in Escherichia coli, and the GST was subsequently purified by affinity chromatography. The(More)
Pancreatic lipase is a potential therapeutic target for the treatment of diet-induced obesity in humans. In an ongoing search for new pancreatic lipase inhibitors from natural sources, a methanolic extract of marine brown algae, Eisenia bicyclis, showed a significant inhibitory effect against pancreatic lipase. Bioassay-guided isolation of this methanolic(More)
The growth of red pepper plug seedlings was promoted by Bacillus cereus MJ-1, B. macroides CJ-29, and B. pumilus CJ-69 isolated from the rhizosphere. Gibberellins (GAs), a well-known plant growth-promoting hormone, were detected in the culture broth of their rhizobacteria. Among the GAs, the contents of GA1, GA3, GA4, and GA7, physiologically active GAs,(More)
A multivalent approach to discover a novel antibiotic substance against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a marine bacterium, UJ-6, exhibiting an antibacterial activity against MRSA was isolated from seawater. The isolated strain was identified to be Pseudomonas sp. by the morphology, biochemical, and genetical analyses. The ethyl acetate(More)
The aim of the present work is focused on protective effects of an edible red alga, Laurencia undulata ethanolic (EtOH) extracts (LU) containing a large amount of polyphenols against OVA-induced murine allergic airway reactions using in vivo histological and cytokine assay. Mice sensitized and challenged with ovalbumin (OVA) showed typical asthmatic(More)
BACKGROUND In an effort to develop alternative therapeutic agents, strong inhibitory activity against α-glucosidase and α-amylase was detected in Eisenia bicyclis methanolic extract. RESULTS In this study, two phlorotannins were isolated from E. bicyclis and characterised by chromatography and nuclear magnetic resonance. The active substances were(More)

In the present study, the xylA gene encoding a thermostable xylose (glucose) isomerase was cloned from Streptomyces chibaensis J-59. The open reading frame of xylA (1167 bp) encoded a protein of 388 amino acids with a calculated molecular mass of about 43 kDa. The XylA showed high sequence homology (92% identity) with that of S. olivochromogenes. The xylose(More)
