Scanning Transmission X-Ray, Laser Scanning, and Transmission Electron Microscopy Mapping of the Exopolymeric Matrix of Microbial Biofilms
TLDR
This combination of multimicroscopy analysis can be used to create a detailed correlative map of biofilm structure and composition and to improve the understanding of the biochemical basis for biofilm organization.
Microscale and Molecular Assessment of Impacts of Nickel, Nutrients, and Oxygen Level on Structure and Function of River Biofilm Communities
TLDR
Observations indicate that significant interactions occur between Ni, oxygen, and nutrients and that Ni at 0.5 mg liter−1 may have significant impacts on river microbial community diversity and function.
Assessment of lectin-binding analysis for in situ detection of glycoconjugates in biofilm systems.
TLDR
Lectin-binding analysis represents a valuable tool to examine the glycoconjugate distribution in fully hydrated biofilms and chemical heterogeneities within extracellular biofilm locations can be identified in order to examined the role ofExtracellular polymeric substances in environmental biofilm systems.
Effects of selected pharmaceuticals on riverine biofilm communities.
TLDR
At 10 microg.L(-1) levels pharmaceuticals exhibit both nutrient-like and toxic effects on riverine microbial communities, which may be consistent with proportional loss of cyanobacteria and relative increase in algal biomass rather than incorporation of pharmaceutical carbon into microbial biofilm.
Galvanic sulphide oxidation as a metal-leaching mechanism and its environmental implications
Following a brief review of the theoretical aspects of galvanic sulphide oxidation, the significance of galvanic interaction in the oxidation of natural mixed sulphide assemblages is demonstrated
In situ evidence for microdomains in the polymer matrix of bacterial microcolonies.
TLDR
The combination of FLBA with fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) indicates that the colonies consist of the major groups, alpha- and beta-Proteobacteria.
Bacteria Associated with Cysts of the Soybean Cyst Nematode (Heterodera glycines)
TLDR
The cysts of this important plant pathogen are revealed to be rich in a variety of bacteria, some of which could presumably play a role in the ecology of SCN or have potential as biocontrol agents.
