The exploitation of microorganisms in natural or technological systems calls for monitoring tools that reflect their metabolic activity in real time and, if necessary, are flexible enough for field application. The Gibbs energy dissipation of assimilated substrates or photons often in the form of heat is a general feature of life processes and thus, in(More)
Pseudoalteromonas phage vB_PspS-H40/1 is a lytic phage that infects Pseudoalteromonas sp. strain H40. Both, the phage and its host were isolated in the 1970s from seawater samples collected from the North Sea near the island of Helgoland, Germany. The phage particle has an icosahedral capsid with a diameter of ~43 to 45 nm and a long non-contractile tail of(More)
Focussing on the role of chlorocatechol 1,2-dioxygenase (CC12O), an oxygen-dependent key enzyme in the aerobic catabolism of chlorobenzene (CB), Pseudomonas veronii strain UFZ B549, Acidovorax facilis strain UFZ B530, and a community of indigenous groundwater bacteria were amended with CB degradation under either oxic or hypoxic conditions. All cultures(More)
