Diversity Surveys and Evolutionary Relationships of aoxB Genes in Aerobic Arsenite-Oxidizing Bacteria
This study underlines the usefulness of the aoxB gene as a functional marker of aerobic As(III) oxidizers and highlights the conservation of essential amino acids and structural motifs.
Desulfatibacillum aliphaticivorans gen. nov., sp. nov., an n-alkane- and n-alkene-degrading, sulfate-reducing bacterium.
Comparative sequence analyses of the 16S rRNA gene and dissimilatory sulfite reductase (dsrAB) gene and those of other sulfate-reducing bacteria indicated that strain CV2803T was a member of a distinct cluster that contained unnamed species, and is proposed as the type strain of a novel species in a new genus.
Congruent Phylogenies of Most Common Small-Subunit rRNA and Dissimilatory Sulfite Reductase Gene Sequences Retrieved from Estuarine Sediments
DSR gene analysis is a promising and specific approach for investigating SRB diversity in complex habitats and showed a much higher phylogenetic specificity than the other primersets.
Oxidation of arsenite by Thiomonas strains and characterization of Thiomonas arsenivorans sp. nov.
Strain b6T (DSM 16361T, LMG 22795T) is proposed as the type strain of the new species Thiomonas arsenivorans, sp.
Petrotoga halophila sp. nov., a thermophilic, moderately halophilic, fermentative bacterium isolated from an offshore oil well in Congo.
A novel thermophilic, moderately halophile, rod-shaped bacterium, strain MET-B(T), with a sheath-like outer structure (toga), was isolated from an offshore oil-producing well in Congo, West Africa and is proposed as representing a novel species, for which the name Petrotoga halophila sp.
Precipitation of arsenic sulphide from acidic water in a fixed-film bioreactor.
This study was the first to show that As can be removed by bioprecipitation of orpiment from acidic solution containing up to 100mg L(-1) As(V) in a bioreactor.
Desulfonauticus submarinus gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel sulfate-reducing bacterium isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent.
A novel moderately thermophilic, hydrogenotrophic, sulfate-reducing bacterium, strain 6N(T) (=DSM 15269(T)=CIP 107713(T)), was isolated from matrixes of Alvinella and Riftia originating from deep-sea
Population Structure and Abundance of Arsenite-Oxidizing Bacteria along an Arsenic Pollution Gradient in Waters of the Upper Isle River Basin, France
ABSTRACT Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) and quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) were successfully developed to monitor functional aoxB genes as markers of aerobic arsenite oxidizers.
Sulfobacillus benefaciens sp. nov., an acidophilic facultative anaerobic Firmicute isolated from mineral bioleaching operations
Gram-positive bacteria found as the sole Firmicutes present in two mineral bioleaching stirred tanks, and a third bacterium isolated from a heap leaching operation, were shown to be closely related
A Simple Biogeochemical Process Removing Arsenic from a Mine Drainage Water
Arsenic is a toxic element commonly found in mining environments. The present study aimed to determine the influence of the indigenous bacterial population on the biogeochemical evolution of arsenic
