INTERNATIONAL VETERINARY AND AGROCHEMICAL

 

INTERNATIONAL AWARD
FOR RESEARCH IN AGROCHEMICALS
PRESENTED BY THE AGROCHEMICAL DIVISION OF ACS
SPONSORED BY BASF CORPORATION

Dr. Isamu Yamaguchi has been the president of theAgricultural Chemicals Inspection Station (IncorporatedAdministrative Agency) since April 2005. He is an advisorfor the 11th IUPAC International Congress of Pesticide Chemistry held in Kobe, Japan, August 2006. He has beena member of the Agrochemicals Division for 20 years.

Dr. Yamaguchi graduated from the Department of Agricultural Chemistry, finished the master course of Graduate School of Agriculture (Antibiotics) at The University of Tokyo, and joined RIKEN (The Institute of Physical and Chemical Research) in 1967. He obtained his Ph.D. from The University of Tokyo by presenting the thesis entitled, “Studies on the Metabolic Fate of Blasticidin S in the Environment.” Blasticidin S deaminase found in this study is a novel nucleoside deaminase. The successful cloning of its responsible genes, BSD and bsr, opened a new aspect of blasticidin S as a useful research agent in molecular biology. The BSD gene has been widely used in the world as a drug selectable marker.
