Professor Hideaki NOJIRI, Ph. D.
教授 野尻 秀昭
Research AreaEnvironmental Microbiology
Key WordsBacteria, Biodegradation, Degradative plasmid, Genome, Degradative enzymes, Rieske non-heme iron oxygenase (Aromatic ring-hydroxylating oxygenase), X-ray crystallography
MessageEnvironmental bacteria are capable to degrading various contaminated toxic compounds. We would like to know the molecular basis of such 'specific' function by molecular genetic, genomic, enzymatic, and X-ray crystallographic studies. In addition, we would like to know the 'actual' function and behavior of degradative bacteria.

准教授 岡田 憲典
Research AreaPlant Molecular Biologyy
Key WordsTerpenoids, The MEP pathway, Gene cluster
MessagePlants biosynthesize many functionally unknown secondary metabolite, some of which are useful for human life, and often have an important roles in plant physiology itself. Of those metabolites, terpenoids are one of the largest groups of the metabolites in plants. Disclosing the mechanisms of a complicated nature of terpenoids biosynthesis is our primary destination, and hopefully, the findings will help to improve plants functions for human benefits.

助教 水口(鈴木)千穂
Research AreaEnvironmental Microbiology
Key Words Bacteria, Degradative plasmid, Nucleoid-associated proteins, Single-cell analysis
MessageDegradation of environmental pollutants using bacteria is a valuable method for bioremediation. To regulate bacterial degradative ability, it is important to clarify transcriptional networks which regulate physiological activity of bacteria. We are especially interested in the function of global regulators including nucleoid-associated proteins.
