Two strains of pink-colored aerobic bacteriochlorophyll a-containing bacteria were isolated from aerobic (strain ROS 10) and anaerobic (strain ROS 35) zones of the water column of Mono Lake (California, United States). Cells of the bacteria were nonmotile oval gram-negative rods multiplying by binary fission by means of a constriction. No intracellular(More)
A novel strain, alga-05, of alkaliphilic purple nonsulfur bacteria was isolated from sediments of a small saline (60 g/l) soda lake near Lake Algin (Barguzin Valley, Buryat Republic, Russia). These bacteria contain bacteriochlorophyll a and carotenoids of the alternative spirilloxanthin group with predominating demethylspheroidenone. They are facultative(More)
Bioenergetics of the aerobic bacteriochlorophyll a-containing (BCl a) bacterium (ABC bacterium) Roseinatronobacter thiooxidans is a combination of photosynthesis, oxygen respiration, and oxidation of sulfur compounds under alkaliphilic conditions. The photosynthetic activity of Rna. thiooxidans cells was established by the photoinhibition of cell(More)
An alkaliphilic nonsulfur purple bacterial (NPB) strain “Green” was isolated from sediments of the littoral zone of the soda lake (mineralization 22 g/l, pH 9.5) in the Barguzin River valley (Eastern Siberia). The cells of the new isolate are ovoid or polymorphic at latter stages. The photosynthetic membrane structures are of vesicular type.(More)
BACKGROUND Aerobic anoxygenic photototrophic (AAP) bacteria represent an important group of marine microorganisms inhabiting the euphotic zone of the ocean. They harvest light using bacteriochlorophyll (BChl) a and are thought to be important players in carbon cycling in the ocean. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Aerobic anoxygenic phototrophic (AAP)(More)
A novel strain, SHET, of aerobic bacteriochlorophyll a-containing bacteria was isolated from the surface layer of bottom sediments from the soda lake Shuluutai-Ekhe-Torom (Chita oblast, Eastern Siberia, Russia). The lake water has a total mineralization of 30 g/l and a pH of 9.2. The cells of strain SHET are cocci or short rods, which reproduce by uniform(More)
We studied the distribution of anoxygenic phototrophs in 23 steppe lakes in the Transbaikal region (Russia), in Uzbekistan (Central Asia) and in the Crimean peninsula (Ukraine). The lakes varied in their mineral content and composition (salinities from 0.2 to 300 g L(-1) ). The Transbaikal lakes were alkaline (pH>9), with high amounts of soda. The Uzbek and(More)
The physicochemical properties, species composition, and vertical distribution of microorganisms in the water column, shoreline microbial mat, and small shoreline mud volcanoes of the stratified soda Lake Doroninskoe were investigated in September 2007. The lake is located in the Transbaikal region, in the permafrost zone (51°25′N; 112°28′E). The maximal(More)
