We found a bacterium, Pandoraea sp. 12B-2, of which whole cells catalyzed not only the decarboxylation of 2,6-dihydroxybenzoate but also the regioselective carboxylation of 1,3-dihydroxybenzene to 2,6-dihydroxybenzoate. The whole cells of Pandoraea sp. 12B-2 also catalyzed the regioselective carboxylation of...

Spore-derived mycobionts of the lichen Graphis proserpens were cultivated on a malt-yeast extract medium supplemented with 10% sucrose and their metabolites were investigated. Isocoumarin derivatives 1-3 and 7-oxo-5,7-dihydrooxepino[4,3,2-de]isochromene derivatives, proserins A-C (4-6), were isolated along with three known isocoumarin derivatives...

In this study, the incorporation of Texas Red-labeled avidin into crystals of 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid (2,5-DHB) and 2,6-DHB (used as matrixes for matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI)) was investigated by fluorescence spectrophotometry and confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM). The analyte distribution in...
