The impact of reduced pH on the microbial community of the coral Acropora eurystoma
Rising concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide are acidifying the world's oceans. Surface seawater pH is 0.1 units lower than pre-industrial values and is predicted to decrease by up to 0.4Expand

Expression of acetate permease-like (apl ) genes in subsurface communities of Geobacter species under fluctuating acetate concentrations.
The addition of acetate to uranium-contaminated aquifers in order to stimulate the growth and activity of Geobacter species that reduce uranium is a promising in situ bioremediation option.Expand

Highly conserved genes in Geobacter species with expression patterns indicative of acetate limitation.
Analysis of the genome of Geobacter sulfurreducens revealed four genes encoding putative symporters with homology to ActP, an acetate transporter in Escherichia coli. Three of these genes, aplA, aplBExpand

Diversityandabundanceofglycosyl hydrolase family5 in the NorthAtlanticOcean
The diversity and abundance of glycosyl hydrolase family 5 (GH5) were studied in the North Atlantic Ocean. This family was chosen because of the large number of available sequences from culturedExpand
