Composition and antifungal activities of the leaf essential oil of Neolitsea parvigemma from Taiwan.
The hydrodistillated leaf essential oil of Neolitsea parvigemma was analyzed to determine its composition and yield. Sixty-two compounds were identified, the main components being beta-caryophyllene (14.2%), beta-eudesmol (12.9%), alpha-cadinol (10.2%) and tau-cadinol (8.8%). Oxygena...
Marine-derived filamentous fungi and their potential application for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon bioremediation
Eight marine-derived fungi that were previously selected for their abilities to decolorize RBBR dye were subjected to pyrene and benzo[a]pyrene degradation. The fungus Aspergillus sclerotiorum CBMAI 849 showed the best performance with regard to pyrene (99.7%) and benzo[a]pyrene (76....
Antimycin A18 produced by an endophytic Streptomyces albidoflavus isolated from a mangrove plant.
[Attempt to evaluation of the microbiological purity of dish table subjected to mechanical washing process].
The aim of this work was attempt to assess the microbiological purity of dish table subjected to mechanical cleaning process. The total number of microorganism and the total number of yeast and mould on the surface of flat and deep plates and cups was marked in this experiment. These...
A longitudinal study of environmental risk factors for subjective symptoms associated with sick building syndrome in new dwellings
This study was performed to explore possible environmental risk factors, including indoor chemicals, mold, and dust mite allergens, which could cause sick building syndrome (SBS)-type symptoms in new houses. The study was conducted in 2004 and 2005 and the final study population cons...
Fungal diversity in composting process of pig manure and mushroom cultural waste based on partial sequence of large subunit rRNA.
Fungal diversity during composting was investigated by culture-independent rDNA sequence analysis. Composting was carried out with pig manure and mushroom cultural waste using a field-scale composter (Hazaka system), and samples were collected at various stages. Based on partial sequence analysis of...
In vitro bactericidal activity of recombinant human beta-defensin-3 against pathogenic bacterial strains in human tooth root canal.
We conclude that HBD3 has the potential to eliminate bacteria effectively and rapidly in the local microenvironment of the root canal system and that it may contribute to successful endodontic treatment....
[Influence of fungi-feeding nematodes on soil functional stability under heat or copper stress].
In a microcosm experiment, the effects of the interaction between soil fungi-feeding nematodes and microorganisms on the soil functional stability under persistent stress of CuSO4 or transient stress of heating to 40 degrees C for 18 h were studied, with the short-term decomposition of barley leaf p...
Identification and characteristic analysis of microorganisms in an integrated bioreactor for odours treatment
Odours containing some hydrophilic and hydrophobic compounds could be efficiently removed by the degradation of bacteria and fungi in an integrated bioreactor. Microorganisms from the integrated bioreactor were observed and identified. The amount, species and distribution characteristics of the micro...
A new model for nuclear lamina organization.
We have recently re-examined the organization of a simple B-type lamina in Xenopus oocytes [Goldberg, Huttenlauch, Hutchison and Stick (2008) J. Cell Sci. 121, 215-225] and shown that it consists of tightly packed 8-10 nm filaments with regular cross-connections, tightly opposed to the membrane. Whe...
