Measurements of wind-wave growth and swell decay during the Joint North Sea Wave Project (JONSWAP)
"Wave spectra were measured along a profile extending 160 kilometers into the North Sea westward from Sylt for a period often weeks in 1968 and 1969. During the main experiment in July 1969, thirteenExpand

H‐NOX regulation of c‐di‐GMP metabolism and biofilm formation in Legionella pneumophila
Haem Nitric oxide/OXygen (H‐NOX) binding domains are a family of haemoprotein sensors that are widespread in bacterial genomes, but limited information is available on their function. LegionellaExpand

Surface multiheme c-type cytochromes from Thermincola potens and implications for respiratory metal reduction by Gram-positive bacteria
Almost nothing is known about the mechanisms of dissimilatory metal reduction by Gram-positive bacteria, although they may be the dominant species in some environments. Thermincola potens strain JRExpand

Fe(II) oxidation is an innate capability of nitrate-reducing bacteria that involves abiotic and biotic reactions.
Phylogenetically diverse species of bacteria can catalyze the oxidation of ferrous iron [Fe(II)] coupled to nitrate (NO(3)(-)) reduction, often referred to as nitrate-dependent iron oxidation (NDFO).Expand

GEMM-I riboswitches from Geobacter sense the bacterial second messenger cyclic AMP-GMP
Significance Bacteria are hidden forces of nature. For example, Geobacter bacteria play important roles in geochemistry by reducing metals in the environment. Scientists also are exploring theExpand

Seizure related elevations of extracellular amino acids in human focal epilepsy
Intracerebral microdialysis combined with electrocorticographic recordings was used in a patient subjected to epilepsy surgery. The patient developed a series of partial seizures during an 8 minExpand

H-NOX–mediated nitric oxide sensing modulates symbiotic colonization by Vibrio fischeri
The bioluminescent bacterium Vibrio fischeri initiates a specific, persistent symbiosis in the light organ of the squid Euprymna scolopes. During the early stages of colonization, V. fischeri isExpand

Mutant phenotypes for thousands of bacterial genes of unknown function
A large-scale mutagenesis screen identifies mutant phenotypes for over 11,000 protein-coding genes in bacteria that had previously not been assigned a function. Expand

Toward a Mechanistic Understanding of Anaerobic Nitrate-Dependent Iron Oxidation: Balancing Electron Uptake and Detoxification
The anaerobic oxidation of Fe(II) by subsurface microorganisms is an important part of biogeochemical cycling in the environment, but the biochemical mechanisms used to couple iron oxidation toExpand

Inhibition of microbial sulfate reduction in a flow-through column system by (per)chlorate treatment
Microbial sulfate reduction is a primary cause of oil reservoir souring. Here we show that amendment with chlorate or perchlorate [collectively (per)chlorate] potentially resolves this issue.Expand
