Monoalkylether phospholipids in the sulfate-reducing bacteria Desulfosarcina variabilis and Desulforhabdus amnigenus
Abstract. In this study, cellular lipid compositions of two mesophilic sulfate-reducing bacteria were analyzed by high performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS). In DesulfosarcinaExpand

Phospholipid analysis as a tool to study complex microbial communities in marine sediments.
To complement information on microbial communities in marine sediments that can be obtained using microbiological methods, we developed an analytical procedure to trace microbial lipids inExpand

Variable temperature-related changes in fatty acid composition of bacterial isolates from German Wadden sea sediments representing different bacterial phyla
erial strains, including 15 facultative anaerobes and 9 strictly anaerobic sulfate reducers, were isolated under anoxic conditions from an intertidal mudflat of the northwest German coast andExpand

Desulfobulbus mediterraneus sp. nov., a sulfate-reducing bacterium growing on mono- and disaccharides
Abstract. A new sulfate-reducing bacterium, strain 86FS1, was isolated from a deep-sea sediment in the western Mediterranean Sea with sodium lactate as electron and carbon source. Cells were ovoid,Expand

Desulfosporomusa polytropa gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel sulfate-reducing bacterium from sediments of an oligotrophic lake
Five strains of sulfate-reducing bacteria were isolated from the highest positive dilutions of a most probable number (MPN) series supplemented with lactate and inoculated with sediments from theExpand

Mycosporine-glutamicol-glucoside: a natural UV-absorbing secondary metabolite of rock-inhabiting microcolonial fungi.
Microcolonial ascomycetes are known to inhabit bare rock surfaces in cold and hot deserts and thus are habitually exposed to high levels of solar radiation. Several of these stress-tolerant fungalExpand

Microbial communities in a Wadden Sea sediment core: clues from analyses of intact glyceride lipids, and released fatty acids
In this study microbial communities were investigated in a 55 cm sediment core from a tidal flat close to Neuharlingersiel, NW Germany, using bulk and molecular geochemical parameters. We focussed onExpand

Novel bacteriochlorophyll e structures and species-specific variability of pigment composition in green sulfur bacteria
Abstract. The relative composition of bacteriochlorophyll (BChl) homologs in five different strains of brown-colored green sulfur bacteria was investigated by HPLC-MS/MS and NMR analyses. InExpand

Gammaproteobacteria as a Possible Source of Eicosapentaenoic Acid in Anoxic Intertidal Sediments
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA; n-20:5ω3) was found to be a constituent of phospholipids in three mesophilic strains of Gammaproteobacteria, which were isolated from anoxic most probable number seriesExpand
