Growth of a Dehalococcoides-Like Microorganism on Vinyl Chloride and cis-Dichloroethene as Electron Acceptors as Determined by Competitive PCR
TLDR
The growth of bacterium VS was found to be coupled to the dehalogenation of VC and cDCE, suggesting unique metabolic capabilities, and an important limitation of this cPCR assay was its inability to discriminate between active and inactive cells. Expand
Molecular Identification of the Catabolic Vinyl Chloride Reductase from Dehalococcoides sp. Strain VS and Its Environmental Distribution
TLDR
The vcrA gene identified here may be a useful molecular target for evaluating, predicting, and monitoring in situ reductive VC dehalogenation. Expand
Towards environmental systems biology of Shewanella
TLDR
Systems-level analysis of the model species Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 and other members of this genus has provided new insights into the signal-transduction proteins, regulators, and metabolic and respiratory subsystems that govern the remarkable versatility of the shewanellae. Expand
Localized Plasticity in the Streamlined Genomes of Vinyl Chloride Respiring Dehalococcoides
TLDR
The first, to the authors' knowledge, complete genome sequences of microorganisms able to respire VC, Dehalococcoides sp. Expand
Anaerobic bacterial metabolism of hydrocarbons
The capacity of some bacteria to metabolize hydrocarbons in the absence of molecular oxygen was first recognized only about ten years ago. Since then, the number of hydrocarbon compounds shown to beExpand
Dehalococcoides mccartyi gen. nov., sp. nov., obligately organohalide-respiring anaerobic bacteria relevant to halogen cycling and bioremediation, belong to a novel bacterial class, Dehalococcoidia
TLDR
Six obligately anaerobic bacterial isolates with strictly organohalide-respiring metabolisms obtained from chlorinated solvent-contaminated aquifers, contaminated and uncontaminated river sediments or anoxic digester sludge represent a new genus and species, for which the name Dehalococcoides mccartyi gen. nov. Expand
Vinyl chloride and cis-dichloroethene dechlorination kinetics and microorganism growth under substrate limiting conditions.
TLDR
Investigating the effect of limiting substrate concentrations (electron donor and acceptor) on DCE and VC dechlorination kinetics and microorganism growth by bacterium VS indicates net decay will result if the total electron acceptor concentration is below 0.7 microM, regardless of electron donor levels. Expand
Scanning transmission X‐ray microscopy study of microbial calcification
Calcium phosphates and calcium carbonates are among the most prevalent minerals involved in microbial fossilization. Characterization of both the organic and mineral components in biomineralizedExpand
Dehalococcoides mccartyi gen. nov., sp. nov., obligately organohalide-respiring anaerobic bacteria relevant to halogen cycling and bioremediation, belong to a novel bacterial class, Dehalococcoidia
TLDR
Dehalococcoides mccartyi gen. nov., obligately organohalide-respiring anaerobic bacteria relevant to halogen cycling and bioremediation, belong to a novel bacterial class, De Halococcoidia classis nov, within the phylum Chloroflexi. Expand
Gliding Motility in Bacteria: Insights from Studies ofMyxococcus xanthus

  • 1 September 1999
TLDR
Studies on the gliding bacterium Myxococcus xanthus suggest that two independent gliding machineries, encoded by two multigene systems, operate in this microorganism, suggesting that the two motors found in this bacterium can be regulated to result in coordinated multicellular movements. Expand
