A strain of Thiobacillus denitrificans was isolated after enrichment under anaerobic conditions by the continuous culture technique using thiosulfate as energy source and nitrate as electron acceptor and nitrogen source. The isolate was an active denitrifyer, the optimal conditions being 30°C and pH 7.5–8.0. Denitrification was inhibited by sulfate (the(More)
Alcaligenes spec. strain In 3 was isolated from an enrichment culture with indole inoculated with activated sludge. The organism was able to grow with indole as sole source of carbon and nitrogen. During growth with this substrate indigo and anthranilate accumulated in the culture broth. By measurement of the oxidation of intermediates (O(2)-uptake) and(More)
An upflow packed bed reactor with lava stones as support for the microbial growth proved to be very useful for the denitrification of industrial waste water by Thiobacillus denitrificans. The application of the plug flow principle allowed higher concentrations of nitrate to be employed than in a stirred tank reactor because inhibitory concentrations of(More)
A new plasmid, pGA1, has been isolated from Corynebacterium glutamicum LP-6, and its detailed restriction map has been prepared. The 4.9-kb plasmid has a G + C content of 57%. It replicates in C. glutamicum ATCC13032 and is compatible with the three other plasmids, pCC1, pBL1 and pHM1519, commonly used for vector construction for amino acid-producing(More)
Luftmycel-Sporen werden mit Hilfe von Triton X-100 als Netzmittel suspendiert und die filtrierte, homogene, sehr dichte Suspension mit einer Agarlösung vermischt (Endkonzentration 1.25 Agar/l). Diese Sporenkonserve in Weichagar wird bei 5°C aufbewahrt und kann über Monate und sogar einige Jahre als Impfmaterial dienen. Es wird über Erfahrungen mit anderen(More)
474 strains of the actinomycete genera Streptomyces (including species of the former genera Chainia and Streptoverticillium), Pseudonocardia and Micromonospora were examined for their ability to degrade quinate (Q) and p-hydroxybenzoate (pHB); selected strains were also tested for their capacity to catabolize benzoate (B). Whereas in the case of Q (5-10 g/l(More)
Process water from the entirely closed water system of a wastepaper reprocessing mill was examined for its content of different groups of microorganisms. Comparison with waste-paper reprocessing mills with nonclosed systems and concomitant higher specific water consumption showed that system closing is associated with a marked increase in the number of(More)
A preliminary screening of numerous species of the order Actinomycetales, especially of the genera Mycobacterium, Nocardia, Rhodococcus, Pseudonocardia, and Streptomyces, showed that many of them are able to metabolize benzoate (B) and p-hydroxybenzoate (pHB) as indicated by growth and change of color of the pH-indicator of an agar medium.
