Role of silicon in diatom metabolism. A silicon requirement for deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis in the diatom Cylindrotheca fusiformis Reimann and Lewin.
Silicon deprivation of young cells of C. fusiformis in light-dark synchronized cultures completely inhibited mitosis without affecting normal increase in volume. During the first 12 h of siliconExpand

Bacillus marismortui sp. nov., a new moderately halophilic species from the Dead Sea.
A group of 91 moderately halophilic, Gram-positive, rod-shaped strains were isolated from enrichments prepared from Dead Sea water samples collected 57 years ago. These strains were examined for 117Expand

Lipid components of diatoms.
Abstract 1. 1. The total lipids of five species of marine diatoms and one fresh-water diatom were studied chromatographically and the major components identified. All species contained glycerides,Expand

THE POLYMORPHIC DIATOM PHAEODACTYLUM TRICORNUTUM: ULTRASTRUCTURE OF ITS MORPHOTYPES 1, 2
The ultrastructure of the oval, fusiform and triradiate morphotypes of Phaeodactylum tricornutum Bohlin is described. The organization and structure of the cytoplasmic organelles is similar in allExpand

Characterization of a silicon transporter gene family in Cylindrotheca fusiformis: sequences, expression analysis, and identification of homologs in other diatoms
Abstract The transport of silicon is an integral part of the synthesis of the silicified cell wall of diatoms, yet knowledge of the number, features, and regulation of silicon transporters isExpand

Reclassification of Bacillus marismortui as Salibacillus marismortui comb. nov.
Recently, the features of a group of strains isolated from Dead Sea enrichments obtained in 1936 by one of us (B. E. Volcani) were described. They were gram-positive, moderately halophilic,Expand

Phylogenetic analyses of some extremely halophilic archaea isolated from Dead Sea water, determined on the basis of their 16S rRNA sequences.
Twenty-two extremely halophilic aerobic archaeal strains were isolated from enrichments prepared from Dead Sea water samples collected 57 years ago. The isolates were phenotypically clustered intoExpand
