    The authors have synthesized single-crystal samples of the layered cobalt oxide Pb-Sr-Co-O and measured resistivity, thermopower, and Hall coefficient from 4.2 to 300 K. The resistivity, the thermopower, and the Hall coefficient are 13 mΩ cm, 150 μV/K, and 1.6 × 10-2 cm 3/C at 300 K, respectively, which are typical values for a misfit-layered cobalt oxide. The thermopower and resistivity are associated with spin density wave, and a close relationship between the pseudogap temperature and the thermopower is suggested for all the misfit-layered cobalt oxides.
