A xylanase gene, designated Svixyn10A, was cloned from actinomycetes Saccharomonospora viridis and the gene product was characterized. Gene Svixyn10A contains 1,374 bp and encodes a polypeptide of 457 amino acids composed of a glycoside hydrolase family 10 catalytic domain with a putative signal peptide, a short Gly-rich linker and a family 2(More)
During summers in 2007 and 2008, an investigation was conducted to identify the distribution of mosquitoes and circulation of mosquito-borne arboviruses in Inner Mongolia, China. A total of 10,542 mosquitoes consisting of seven species from the Aedes, Culex, and Anopheles genera were trapped by UV-light traps, and they were sorted into 211 pools according(More)
γ-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a natural non-protein amino acid, which broadly exists in many plant parts and is widely used as an ingredient in the food industry. In mammals, it is widely distributed in central nervous system and non-neural tissues. In addition to a primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, endogenous GABA content(More)
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.tb)-derived antigens capable of inducing strong cellular and/or humoral responses are potential targets for both immunodiagnosis and vaccine development against tuberculosis (TB). In the present study, we identified adenylate kinase (ADK, Rv0733) as an antigen that induces high cellular and antibody responses in active TB(More)
Streptomyces lydicus A02 is used by industry because it has a higher natamycin-producing capacity than the reference strain S. natalensis ATCC 27448. We sequenced the complete genome of A02 using next-generation sequencing platforms, and to achieve better sequence coverage and genome assembly, we utilized single-molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing.
