A thermophilic sulfate-reducing vibrio isolated from thermal vent water in Yellowstone Lake, Wyoming, USA is described. The gram-negative, curved rod-shaped cells averaged 0.3 micrometer wide and 1.5 micrometers long. They were motile by means of a single polar flagellum. Growth was observed between 40 degrees and 70 degrees C with optimal growth at 65(More)
Recently, it has been noted that fish in acidified lakes may contain elevated levels of mercury. While there is correlation among lakes between depressed pH and high mercury concentrations in fish, the cause of this problem is unknown. A number of hypotheses have been advanced in explanation, including increased mercury deposition, changes in mercury(More)
More than 100 females of the obligately asexual bdelloid rotifers were isolated from nature and their mitochondrial cox1 genes (encoding cytochrome oxidase subunit 1) were sequenced. Phylogenetic analysis of the sequences showed that most of the isolates fall into 21 clades that show two characteristics of species: they are reciprocally monophyletic and(More)

Methylcellulose cultures containing mouse marrow cells at low densities and partially purified preparations of erythropoietin and Interleukin-3 were scored after 2 weeks for the presence of macroscopic multilineage colonies (from "primary" CFU-macro GEMM). Whole cultures were then harvested and replanted to assess the number of "secondary" CFU-macro GEMM(More)
