An agar-degrading bacterium, Catenovulum sp. X3, was isolated from the seawater of Shantou, China. A novel β-agarase gene agaXa was cloned from the strain Catenovulum sp. X3. The gene agaXa consists of 1,590 bp and encodes a protein of 529 amino acids, with only 40 % amino acid sequence identity with known agarases. AgaXa should belong to the glycoside(More)
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are harmful persistent organic pollutants, while the high-molecular-weight (HMW) PAHs are even more detrimental to the environment and human health. However, microbial anaerobic degradation of HMW PAHs has rarely been reported. One facultative anaerobe Pseudomonas sp. JP1 was isolated from Shantou Bay, Shantou, China,(More)
