Ultrastructure, tactic behaviour and potential for sulfate reduction of a novel multicellular magnetotactic prokaryote from North Sea sediments.
Multicellular magnetotactic prokaryotes (MMPs) represent highly organized, spherical and motile aggregates of 10-40 bacterial cells containing magnetosomes. Although consisting of different cells,Expand

Desulfosporosinus lacus sp. nov., a sulfate-reducing bacterium isolated from pristine freshwater lake sediments.
A novel sulfate-reducing bacterium was isolated from pristine sediments of Lake Stechlin, Germany. This strain, STP12(T), was found to contain predominantly c-type cytochromes and to reduce sulfate,Expand
