Gene context of Flavobacterium

  • In this study, we also found that the TLR4/MD-2 complex, together with CD14, mediated signal transduction induced by flavolipin, an amino acid-containing lipid unique to Flavobacterium meningosepticum [21].
  • The primary structure of Endo-A exhibited significant homology with FO1F.10 gene product from Caenorhabditis elegans and weak homology with peptide-N4-(N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminyl)asparagine amidase from Flavobacterium meningosepticum and chitinase from Streptomyces olivaceoviridis [22].
  • On the basis of results obtained from the morphology of this bacteria and its colony, from biochemical tests, and from the G-C mole percentage in DNA, the bacteria was identified as Flavobacterium farinofermentans nov. sp. (Meng, Z. and Wang, D.) [23].
  • Relationship between gyrA mutations and quinolone resistance in Flavobacterium psychrophilum isolates [24].
  • Phylogenetic analysis indicated that isoamylases from maize and rice are more closely related to a number of glgX gene products of the blue green alga Synechocystis and various bacteria than to isoamylases from Pseudomonas and Flavobacterium [25].
