Group-specific 16S rRNA targeted probes for the detection of type I and type II methanotrophs by fluorescence in situ hybridisation.
TLDR
With these probes, methanotrophs were detected in soil and root samples from rice microcosms, demonstrating their applicability even in a complex environmental matrix. Expand
Changes in Activity and Community Structure of Methane-Oxidizing Bacteria over the Growth Period of Rice
TLDR
The numbers of Methylococcaceae cells were relatively high only in the rhizoplane, demonstrating the importance of rice roots for growth and maintenance of methanotrophic diversity in the soil. Expand
Cooccurrence of Aerobic and Anaerobic Methane Oxidation in the Water Column of Lake Plußsee
ABSTRACT Dissolved methane was investigated in the water column of eutrophic Lake Plußsee and compared to temperature, oxygen, and sulfide profiles. Methane concentrations and δ-13C signaturesExpand
Methane-derived carbon flows through methane-oxidizing bacteria to higher trophic levels in aquatic systems.
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that chironomid larvae assimilate methane-derived carbon through MOB, and phospholipid fatty acids diagnostic for MOB were detected in larval tissue and were significantly enriched, which encompasses the (13)C-uptake predicted for a methane-based nutrition. Expand
Comparing field and microcosm experiments: a case study on methano- and methylo-trophic bacteria in paddy soil.
TLDR
Activity patterns of MOB and the population structure of methylotrophic bacteria agreed well between both studies, even though the detected quantities differed, and extrapolations of microcosm data to the field scale are thus possible. Expand
Linking larval chironomids to methane:seasonal variation of the microbial methane cycle and chironomid δ13C
TLDR
It is suggested strongly that lake characteristics have an influence on methane turnover rates and, in conjunction with season, affect the subsequent incorporation of methane-derived carbon into freshwater food webs via macroinvertebrates. Expand
Methane cycling in lake sediments and its influence on chironomid larval δ13C
TLDR
The stronger larval 13C-depletion in Holzsee was not reflected in differences in the microbial community structure, but in the activity and size of the methanogenic and methanotrophic populations in the lake sediment. Expand
Phylogenetic position of the parasitoid nanoflagellate Pirsonia inferred from nuclear-encoded small subunit ribosomal DNA and a description of Pseudopirsonia n. gen. and Pseudopirsonia mucosa
TLDR
Based on phylogenetic analysis all Pirsonia strains, except P. mucosa, clustered together in one clade, most closely related to Hyphochytrium catenoides within the group of stramenopiles, and was therefore redescribed in this paper as Pseudopirsonia mucosa. Expand
Hierarchical probes at various taxonomic levels in the Haptophyta and a new division level probe for the Heterokonta
TLDR
A new probe for the Heterokonta is presented, which, in combination with previously described probes, will allow for the rapid stepwise characterization of phytoplankton samples for marine plankton members of these algal divisions by fluorescence in situ hybridization. Expand
