The Glucose Repression of Aerial Mycelium Formation in Streptomyces
The Korean Journal of Microbiology, volume 18, issue 3, 1980, Pages 115~122
We have demonstrated that both L-histidine as an amino acid factor and dextrin as a carbon source were required for the glucose repression. 1% glucose was sufficient to the glucose repression of aerial mycelium formation in Streptomyces lavendulae and Streptomyces aureofacience. the synthesized medium, KK, which is lack of all orgnic nutrients except dextrin was able to induce glucose repression, but the addition of 0.003% or more L-histidiner recovers the capacity of glucose repression. 0.02% or more histidine was reuqired for glucose repression of aerial mycelium formation in the absence of dextrin. Treatments of
ormore ethidium bromide (EtBr0 gave rise to bald mutants at high frequency in Streptomyces aureofaciens, and it is probable that the gene(s) for the function of aerial mycelium formation is linked to plasmed DNA in this species.
Action of Ozone on Bacterial Virus f2
The Korean Journal of Microbiology, volume 18, issue 3, 1980, Pages 123~132
Bacterial virus f2 and its RNA were examined to elucidate the mode of ozone utilizing sucrose density gradient analysis and electtron microscopic techniques. the inactivation kinetics of the virus f2 by ozonation showed that the viruses were inactivated during the first 5 sec of the reaction and were further inactivated at a slower rate during the next 10 min at 0.09 and 0.8mg/l ozone concentrations. The virus coat was broken by ozonation into many pieces of protein subunits and the adsorption of the viruses to the host pili was inversely related to the extent of the breakage of the virus. The viral RNA was released from the virus particles during ozone, but ozone inactivation of the RNA enclosed in the protein coat could not ruled out the possibility that the RNA was secondarily sheared by a reaction with the broken coat protein.
Purification and Properties of Carboxymethylcellulases from Aspergillus nidulans FGSC 159
The Korean Journal of Microbiology, volume 18, issue 3, 1980, Pages 133~147
Washed mycelia of Aspergillus nidulans FGSC159 were incubated in CMC minimal liquid medium and the culture filtrate which contained induced extracellular cellulase was fractionated by a three-step procedure including chromatography on Bio-Gel P-150, chromatography on DEAE-Sephadex A-50 and chromatography on Sephadex G-100. Three CMCase components ; F-I-Ia, F-I-Ib and F-II-Ia were prepared. No enzyme activity toward avicel could be detected in these components. Similarly, there was no
activity. pH-optima of the three components were all 5.0 in acetate buffer. Temperature-optima for the activities of F-I-Ia, F-Ib and F-II-Ia were
, respectively. F-II-Ia was shown to be more thermostable than the other two components. F-II-Ia was proved to have quite a different substrate specificity and action property and action property from those of F-I-Ia and F-I-Ib by product analysis on liquid chromatography.
Usefulness of microwave to melt rehydrated media and to remove oxygen from anaerobic tube media
The Korean Journal of Microbiology, volume 18, issue 3, 1980, Pages 148~152
The microwave of 2450 MHz, generated by a household cooking oven, was evaluated for its applicability to melt various rehydrated media and to remove dissolved oxygen from tubed media for anaerobic culture. The effect on the sterilization of E. coli in selective media was also evaluated. The following results were obtained. 10 The microwave oven was useful in saving time for melting media and in eliminating heat and combustion gas from the laboratory, which were inevitable by-products in the conventional flame method. 2) Dissolved oxygen could be removed without boiling over by exposing the tubes of anaerobic culture medium after putting them in a wire basket in a beaker with water. 30 The count of E. coli during the melting of MacConkey and EMB agar were similar to those treated with open flame. The microwave treatment was not considered a possible mean to replace autoclaving even in these selective media.
