Populations of symbiotic Rhizobium meliloti extracted from alfalfa nodules were shown by flow microfluorometry to contain a significant number of bacteroids with higher nucleic acid content than the free-living rhizobia. Bacteroids with lower nucleic acid content than the free-living bacteria were not detected in significant quantities in these populations.(More)
Oxide removal from Ge(100) surfaces treated by HCl and HF solutions with different concentrations are systematically studied by synchrotron radiation photoelectron spectroscopy (SR-PES). SR-PES results show that clean surfaces without any oxide can be obtained after wet chemical cleaning followed by vacuum annealing with a residual carbon contamination of(More)
Two pathways of ammonium assimilation and glutamate biosynthesis have been identified in microorganisms. One pathway involves the NADP-linked glutamate dehydrogenase, which catalyzes the amination of 2-oxoglutarate to form glutamate. An alternative pathway involves the combined activities of glutamine synthetase, which aminates glutamate to form glutamine,(More)
Activation of p type III-V semiconductors with Cesium and Oxygen has been widely used to prepare Negative Electron Affinity (NEA) photocathodes. However, the nature of the chemical species on the surface after the activation is not well-understood. In this study, InP NEA photocathodes activated with Cesium and Oxygen are studied using Synchrotron Radiation(More)
The atomic arrangement of Cs oxides in the activation layer of an InP photocathode is investigated using Angle Dependent Photoemission Spectroscopy (ADPES). Two distinct peaks in the O1s core level and in valence band spectra have led to the discovery of two molecular oxygen species incorporated in the thin activation layer: Cs peroxide (Cs 2 O 2) and Cs(More)
