Paludibacter propionicigenes gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel strictly anaerobic, Gram-negative, propionate-producing bacterium isolated from plant residue in irrigated rice-field soil in Japan.
TLDR
A strictly anaerobic, propionate-producing bacterial strain isolated from rice plant residue in anoxic rice-field soil in Japan was characterized phenotypically and phylogenetically, and a new genus and species Paludibacter propionicigenes gen. nov., sp. Expand
Insoluble Fe-humic acid complex as a solid-phase electron mediator for microbial reductive dechlorination.
We report that the insoluble Fe-HA complex, which was synthesized with both commercial Aldrich humic acid (HA) and natural HA, functions as a solid-phase electron mediator (EM) for the anaerobicExpand
Desulfopila aestuarii gen. nov., sp. nov., a Gram-negative, rod-like, sulfate-reducing bacterium isolated from an estuarine sediment in Japan.
TLDR
A strictly anaerobic, mesophilic, sulfate-reducing bacterial strain isolated from an estuarine sediment in the Sea of Japan was characterized phenotypically and phylogenetically and placed in the class Deltaproteobacteria. Expand
Eleven distinct VH gene families and additional patterns of sequence variation suggest a high degree of immunoglobulin gene complexity in a lower vertebrate, Xenopus laevis
TLDR
Variations in complementarity determining region sequences among members of the same gene family and high degrees of DH and JH region complexity are described, suggesting that in at least this lower vertebrate species, the diversity of expressed Ig VH genes is not restricted. Expand
Mlp24 (McpX) of Vibrio cholerae Implicated in Pathogenicity Functions as a Chemoreceptor for Multiple Amino Acids
TLDR
It is found that glycine and at least 18 l-amino acids, including serine, arginine, asparagine, and proline, serve as attractants to the classical biotype strain O395N1, implying that taxis toward a set of amino acids plays critical roles in pathogenicity of V. cholerae. Expand
Identification of a Vibrio cholerae chemoreceptor that senses taurine and amino acids as attractants
TLDR
It is concluded that Mlp37 serves as the major chemoreceptor for taurine and various amino acids. Expand
Desulfobulbus japonicus sp. nov., a novel Gram-negative propionate-oxidizing, sulfate-reducing bacterium isolated from an estuarine sediment in Japan.
TLDR
Two strictly anaerobic, mesophilic, sulfate-reducing bacterial strains, Pro1(T) and Pro16, were isolated from an estuarine sediment in the Sea of Japan of the Japanese islands and were characterized by phenotypic and phylogenetic methods and represent a novel species of the genus Desulfobulbus. Expand
Anaerosphaera aminiphila gen. nov., sp. nov., a glutamate-degrading, Gram-positive anaerobic coccus isolated from a methanogenic reactor treating cattle waste.
TLDR
Based on the differences in the phenotypic and phylogenetic characteristics of strain WN036(T) compared with those of closely related species, a novel genus and species, Anaerosphaera aminiphila gen. nov., sp.nov. Expand
Salmonella prevalence in slaughtered buffaloes and pigs and antimicrobial susceptibility of isolates in Vientiane, Lao People's Democratic Republic.
TLDR
The results suggest that pigs and buffaloes harbor Salmonella, with a higher prevalence especially in pigs, and all the isolates showed sensitivity to cefotaxime, norfloxacin and ciprofloxazole-trimethoprim. Expand
A putative bactoprenol glycosyltransferase, CsbB, in Bacillus subtilis activates SigM in the absence of co-transcribed YfhO.
TLDR
It is proposed that it is the shortage of available bactoprenol within a cell that induces SigM activity, and it is suggested that SigM is activated by the glycosyltransferase activity of CsbB. Expand
