To examine the potential role of methanobactin (mb) as the extracellular component of a copper acquisition system in Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b, the metal binding properties of mb were examined. Spectral (UV-visible, fluorescence, and circular dichroism), kinetic, and thermodynamic data suggested copper coordination changes at different Cu(II):mb(More)
Cyanobacteria can utilize nitrate or ammonium as a source of fixed nitrogen for cell growth. In the filamentous Calothrix sp. strain PCC 7601, these two sources of nitrogen differently influenced the phycobiliprotein composition of the phycobilisomes, the major light-harvesting antennae. When compared to nitrate, growth in the presence of ammonium resulted(More)
Improvements in the purification of methanobactin (mb) from either Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b(T) or Methylococcus capsulatus Bath resulted in preparations that stimulated methane-oxidation activity in both whole-cell and cell-free fractions of Methylococcus capsulatus Bath expressing the membrane-associated methane monooxygenase (pMMO). By using washed(More)
Prochlorothrix hollandica is an oxygenic photosynthetic prokaryote that differs from the cyanobacteria in having chlorophyll a/b-protein complexes instead of phycobilisomes as major light-harvesting antennae. We report the isolation and culturing of an axenic strain of P. hollandica, available from the Pasteur Culture Collection of Cyanobacteria as strain(More)
Many streams of research have shown that familiarity influences positive attitudes. Such research streams have driven marketing strategies with the explicit goal of exposing potential customers to repeated stimuli, specifically to advertisements. These marketing strategies have been employed in many contexts, including online. This research paper argues(More)
With the growing popularity of mobile technologies and the increasing use of groups within organizations (with members often distributed globally, and constantly “on-the-go”), it is important to understand the collaboration contexts where mobile collaboration technologies (MCTs) are essential. This is especially critical given the high cost associated with(More)
Levels of selenium in whole blood, plasma, erythrocytes and platelets, glutathione peroxidase (EC 1.11.1.9; GSH-Px) activity in erythrocytes and platelets and vitamin E, low-density-lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol and vitamin E: LDL cholesterol in plasma were measured in seventy-five healthy subjects aged less than 65 years and twenty-eight healthy and(More)
