Myxococcus xanthus is a gram-negative bacterium that forms multicellular fruiting bodies upon starvation. Here, we demonstrate that it contains at least 13 eukaryotic-like protein Ser/Thr kinases (Pkn1 to Pkn13) individually having unique features. All contain the kinase domain of approximately 280 residues near the N-terminal end, which share highly(More)
Bacterial precipitation of barite (BaSO(4)) under laboratory conditions is reported for the first time. The bacterium Myxococcus xanthus was cultivated in a solid medium with a diluted solution of barium chloride. Crystallization occurred as a result of the presence of live bacteria and the bacterial metabolic activity. A phosphorous-rich amorphous phase(More)
