Studies on dissimilatory sulfate-reducing bacteria that decompose fatty acids
TLDR
Gliding motility, ultrastructure and nutrition of two newly isolated filamentous sulfate-reducing bacteria, strains 5ac10 and 4be13, were investigated; the capacity of complete oxidation was shown by stoichiometric measurements with acetate plus sulfate. Expand
Microbulbifer hydrolyticus gen. nov., sp. nov., and Marinobacterium georgiense gen. nov., sp. nov., two marine bacteria from a lignin-rich pulp mill waste enrichment community.
TLDR
Two new genera and species are proposed: Microbulbifer hydrolyticus, with type strain IRE-31 (= ATCC 700072), and Marinobacterium georgiense, withtype strain KW-40 (= AtCC 700074). Expand
Silicibacter pomeroyi sp. nov. and Roseovarius nubinhibens sp. nov., dimethylsulfoniopropionate-demethylating bacteria from marine environments.
TLDR
Genotypic and phenotypic analyses support the creation of two novel species: Silicibacter pomeroyi sp.nov. Expand
Methanococcus jannaschii sp. nov., an extremely thermophilic methanogen from a submarine hydrothermal vent
TLDR
The isolation of M. jannaschii from a submarine hydrothermal vent provides additional evidence for biogenic production of CH4 from these deep-sea environments and a new species of the genus Methanococcus is proposed. Expand
Sagittula stellata gen. nov., sp. nov., a lignin-transforming bacterium from a coastal environment.
TLDR
A novel genus and species, Sagittula stellata, are proposed; the type strain is E-37 (= ATCC 700073), which was a member of the alpha subclass of the phylum Proteobacteria and was related to the genus Roseobacter. Expand
Formation of intracytoplasmic lipid inclusions by Rhodococcus opacus strain PD630
TLDR
Strain PD630 utilized β-oxidation and de novo fatty acid biosynthesis for the synthesis of storage lipids and lipid inclusions seemed to have definite structures, probably with membranes at their surfaces, which allow them to maintain their shape, and with some associated proteins, probably involved in the inclusion formation. Expand
Characterization of a spontaneous nonmagnetic mutant of Magnetospirillum gryphiswaldense reveals a large deletion comprising a putative magnetosome island.
TLDR
Findings suggest the existence of a putative large magnetosome island in M. gryphiswaldense and other magnetotactic bacteria. Expand
Cytoskeletal elements in the bacterium Mycoplasma pneumoniae
TLDR
By application of a modified Triton X-100 treatment, it is demonstrated that M. pneumoniae possesses a cytoskeleton consisting of a blade-like rod and a peripheral lining located close to the inner face of the cytoplasmic membrane, exhibiting features of a highly regular network. Expand
Regulation of phasin expression and polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) granule formation in Ralstonia eutropha H16.
TLDR
Regulation of expression of the phasin PhaP, which is the major protein at the surface of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) granules in Ralstonia eutropha H16, was studied and analysed at the molecular level to support the following model for the regulation of phaP expression. Expand
Thermoanaerobacterium aotearoense sp. nov., a Slightly Acidophilic, Anaerobic Thermophile Isolated from Various Hot Springs in New Zealand, and Emendation of the Genus Thermoanaerobacterium
TLDR
It is proposed that strain JW/SL-NZ613T (T = type strain) and five similar strains isolated from samples collected in New Zealand represent a new species, Thermoanaerobacterium aotearoense, based on properties such as formation of elemental sulfur from thiosulfate, growth at acidic pH values at elevated temperatures, and the results of a 16S rRNA sequence comparison performed.
