In situ morphology of the gut microbiota of wood-eating termites [Reticulitermes flavipes (Kollar) and Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki].
TLDR
Results suggest that bacteria are an integral part of the gut ecosystem and that termite paunch microbiota consisted of an abundance of morphologically diverse bacteria and protozoa. Expand
Bacterial spore heat resistance correlated with water content, wet density, and protoplast/sporoplast volume ratio.
TLDR
A hypothesis that the extent of heat resistance is based in whole or in part on the extentof dehydration and diminution of the protoplast in the dormant spore is supported, without implications about physiological mechanisms for attaining this state. Expand
POST MITOTIC FINE STRUCTURE OF GOMPHONEMA PARVULUM.
Electron microscopic examination of sections of a recently divided cell of the diatom Gomphonema parvulum showed that the two new cell wall halves are deposited within a membrane-limited vesicleExpand
The unique root-nodule symbiosis between Rhizobium and the aquatic legume, Neptunia natans (L. f.) Druce
TLDR
It is shown that a specific group of Rhizobium sp. Expand
Heat killing of bacterial spores analyzed by differential scanning calorimetry.
TLDR
Results suggest that a crucial protein is the rate-limiting primary target in the heat killing of dormant bacterial spores, and probably represented the aggregation of intraprotoplast spore components. Expand
Purification and characterization of Klebsiella aerogenes UreE protein: A nickel‐binding protein that functions in urease metallocenter assembly
TLDR
It is hypothesize that UreE binds intracellular nickel ion and functions as a nickel donor during metallocenter assembly into the urease apoprotein. Expand
Paracrystalline sheets reaggregated from solubilized exosporium of Bacillus cereus.
TLDR
Fragments of exosporium, isolated from dormant spores of Bacillus cereus, were disintegrated by treatment with sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) or with phenol and acetic acid and gave rise to crystal-like sheets which had the same lattice symmetry and major chemical components as fragments of the native exospora.
