Enhanced Growth of Acidovorax sp. Strain 2AN during Nitrate-Dependent Fe(II) Oxidation in Batch and Continuous-Flow Systems†
ABSTRACT Microbial nitrate-dependent, Fe(II) oxidation (NDFO) is a ubiquitous biogeochemical process in anoxic sediments. Since most microorganisms that can oxidize Fe(II) with nitrate require anExpand

Induction of Nitrate-Dependent Fe(II) Oxidation by Fe(II) in Dechloromonas sp. Strain UWNR4 and Acidovorax sp. Strain 2AN
ABSTRACT We evaluated the inducibility of nitrate-dependent Fe(II)-EDTA oxidation (NDFO) in non-growth, chloramphenicol-amended, resting-cell suspensions of Dechloromonas sp. strain UWNR4 andExpand

Neutrophilic, nitrate-dependent, Fe(II) oxidation by a Dechloromonas species
A species of Dechloromonas, strain UWNR4, was isolated from a nitrate-reducing, enrichment culture obtained from Wisconsin River (USA) sediments. This strain was characterized for anaerobic oxidationExpand

Microaerophilic, Fe(II)-dependent growth and Fe(II) oxidation by a Dechlorospirillum species.
A species of Dechlorospirillum was isolated from an Fe(II)-oxidizing, opposing-gradient-culture enrichment using an inoculum from a circumneutral, freshwater creek that showed copious amounts ofExpand

DNA mediated assembly of quantum dot-protoporphyrin IX FRET probes and the effect of FRET efficiency on ROS generation.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) involves generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) by the irradiation of a photosensitizer. Controlled and targeted release of ROS by a photosensitizer is crucial in PDT.Expand

Natural attenuation of spilled crude oil by cold-adapted soil bacterial communities at a decommissioned High Arctic oil well site.
Romulus C-42 is a decommissioned oil well on Ellesmere Island in the Canadian High Arctic, and is the northernmost well to have produced oil and gas anywhere in the world. The remote site has beenExpand

Potential for microbial anaerobic 1 hydrocarbon degradation in naturally occurring petroleum-associated deep-sea sediments
The lack of cultured isolates and microbial genomes from the deep seabed means that very little is known about the ecology of this vast habitat. Here, we investigated energy and carbon acquisitionExpand

DIPICOLINIC ACID AS A TRACER FOR THERMOPHILIC ENDOSPORES AND HYDROCARBON SEEPS IN DEEP WATER MARINE SEDIMENTS
Introduction Understanding the sediment biogeography of dormant marine thermophilic bacterial endospores (thermospores) has the potential to assist locating and characterising working petroleumExpand
