A novel bacterium, designated strain OX-01(T), was isolated from acidic soil, taxonomically investigated and identified as an agent that catabolizes (+)-catechin into taxifolin. Strain OX-01(T) is a Gram-reaction-negative, aerobic, non-sporulating, non-motile and rod-shaped bacterium. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis identified this strain as a member of the(More)
Two aerobic, Gram-negative, orange pigmented and irregular rod-shaped bacteria, designated S1-05 and S1-08T, were isolated from seawater from the Pacific Ocean. Phylogenetic analysis based on their 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that the novel isolates could be affiliated with the genus Nonlabens of the family Flavobacteriaceae. The strains S1-05 and(More)
have been accommodated to the genus (Yamada et al., 2012). Franke et al. (1999) found a phylogenetic duality in the new genus Gluconacetobacter. Yamada et al. (2000) divided the genus Gluconacetobacter into two subclusters, i.e., Subclusters 1 and 2. Subsequently, Dellaglio et al. (2005) and Lisdiyanti et al. (2006) recognized respectively two groups and(More)
We analyzed perfluorinated surfactants (PFSs) in 20 river samples and 5 wastewater secondary effluent samples in Japan to reveal their occurrence and sources. Nine PFS species were determined: perfluorooctanesulfonate (PFOS), perfluorooctane sulfonamide (FOSA), perfluoroheptanoate (PFHpA), perfluorooctanoate (PFOA), perfluorononanoate (PFNA),(More)
By immunoblotting with anti-human integrin beta polyclonal antibodies (beta1, beta3 or beta5), a single distinct band of about 60 kDa was detected in total protein extracts from mature leaves of the seagrass Zostera marina L., but no band was detected in total protein extracts from immature seagrass leaves, freshwater grass leaves or Arabidopsis thaliana(More)
A polyphasic study was performed to determine the taxonomic position of strain EK05(T) isolated from a root-outgrowth of Entada koshunensis, a legume available in Okinawa, Japan. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene showed that the strain belongs to the genus Bradyrhizobium. Subsequent multilocus sequence analysis with ITS, glnII, recA, gyrB, and atpD(More)
The taxonomic positions of two bacterial strains, MBIC01146(T) and MBIC01099, isolated from marine environments of Japan and Palau, respectively, were determined by using a polyphasic approach. The bacteria were aerobic, motile, Gram-negative rods and formed star-shaped aggregations. The G+C content of the genomic DNA ranged from 58.5 to 58.7 mol%. The(More)
Two isolates, AC04(T) and AC05, were isolated from the flowers of red ginger collected in Chiang Mai, Thailand. In phylogenetic trees based on 16S rRNA gene sequences, the two isolates were included within a lineage comprised of the genera Acidomonas, Gluconacetobacter, Asaia, Kozakia, Swaminathania, Neoasaia, Granulibacter, and Tanticharoenia, and they(More)
Isolates AH11(T) and AH13(T) were isolated from flowers of lantana and candle bush respectively collected in Thailand. In phylogenetic trees based on 16S rRNA gene sequences, the two isolates formed an independent cluster, which was then connected to the type strain of Saccharibacter floricola. The calculated pair-wise 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities of(More)
Plasma membrane (PM) H(+)-ATPase and H(+) transport activity were detected in PM fractions prepared from Zostera marina (a seagrass), Vallisneria gigantea (a freshwater grass) and Oryza sativa (rice, a terrestrial plant). The properties of Z. marina PM H(+)-ATPase, specifically, the optimal pH for ATPase activity and the result of trypsin treatment, were(More)
