Bacillus licheniformis CGMCC3963 is an important mao-tai flavor-producing strain. It was isolated from the starter (Daqu) of a Chinese mao-tai-flavor liquor fermentation process with solid-state fermentation. We report its genome of 4,525,096 bp here. Many potential insertion genes that are responsible for the unique properties of B. licheniformis CGMCC3963 in mao-tai-flavor liquor production were identified. ...[more]
Project description:The C. elegans lifespan in the presence of Bacillus licheniformis caused induction of a large number of genes associated with anti-aging activiy including beta-oxidation Inaddition, these results indicate the B. licheniformis enhances the lifespan of Caenorhabditis elegans through serotonin signaling Two-condition experiment, C. elegans with B. lichemiformis 141 or E. coli OP50 (conrol) for 24 h. For preparing the total RNA, C. elegans were exposed to 20 mg of bacterial lawn in NGN agar for 24 h.
