isolation of alkaliphilic bacteria for production of high optically pure l-(+)-lactic acid.lactic acid bacteria that grow under alkaline conditions (ph 10) were isolated from various sources in okinawa (japan). these alkali-tolerant and alkaliphilic bacteria were classified as follows: microbacterium sp. (1 strain), enterococcus spp. (9 strains), alkalibacterium spp. (3 strains), exiguobacterium spp. (5 strains), oceanobacillus spp. (3 strains) and bacillus spp. (7 strains) by 16s rrna gene sequencing. by fermentation, many strains were able to convert glucose into mainly l-(+)-lactic ...201425742979
[epidemiological search for vancomycin-resistant enterococci in mainland of the ryukyus].during the period from january through december 2007, a total of 1,814 stool specimens from the inpatients of nine regional hospitals in mainland of the ryukyus, were tested to identify vancomycin-resistant enterococci (vre). all the stool specimens were primarily cultured onto the vre selective agar plates, and a total of 195 specimens yielded positive enterococcal growth. of 195 isolates, vre screening agar tests identified 106 phenotypic vre isolates, consisting 24 isolates of enterococcus ca ...200819583456
