γ-Glutamylmethylamide Is an Essential Intermediate in the Metabolism of Methylamine by Methylocella silvestris
ABSTRACT Methylocella silvestris BL2, a facultative methane utilizer, can grow on monomethylamine (MMA) as a sole carbon and nitrogen source. No activity of MMA dehydrogenase was detectable. Instead,Expand

rpoN, mmoR and mmoG, genes involved in regulating the expression of soluble methane monooxygenase in Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b.
The methanotrophic bacterium Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b converts methane to methanol using two distinct forms of methane monooxygenase (MMO) enzyme: a cytoplasmic soluble form (sMMO) and aExpand

Methanobactin and MmoD work in concert to act as the 'copper-switch' in methanotrophs.
Biological oxidation of methane to methanol by aerobic bacteria is catalysed by two different enzymes, the cytoplasmic or soluble methane monooxygenase (sMMO) and the membrane-bound or particulateExpand

Involvement of MmoR and MmoG in the transcriptional activation of soluble methane monooxygenase genes in Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b.
Methanotrophs oxidize methane to methanol using the enzyme methane monooxygenase. Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b has two such enzymes: a membrane-bound particulate methane monooxygenase (pMMO) and aExpand

Complete genome sequence of the aerobic marine methanotroph Methylomonas methanica MC09.
Methylomonas methanica MC09 is a mesophilic, halotolerant, aerobic, methanotrophic member of the Gammaproteobacteria, isolated from coastal seawater. Here we present the complete genome sequence ofExpand

Duplication of the mmoX gene in Methylosinus sporium: cloning, sequencing and mutational analysis.
The soluble methane monooxygenase (sMMO) is a key enzyme for methane oxidation, and is found in only some methanotrophs, including Methylosinus sporium 5. sMMO expression is regulated at the level ofExpand

Duplicate Copies of Genes Encoding Methanesulfonate Monooxygenase in Marinosulfonomonas methylotropha Strain TR3 and Detection of Methanesulfonate Utilizers in the Environment
ABSTRACT Marinosulfonomonas methylotropha strain TR3 is a marine methylotroph that uses methanesulfonic acid (MSA) as a sole carbon and energy source. The genes from M. methylotropha strain TR3Expand

A preliminary mouse abundance prediction model for the Central Queensland grain producing region.
A preliminary, mouse abundance model was constructed using artificial neural networks and data on trap success rates spanning a ten-year period in neighbouring catchments in Central Queensland. ToExpand

Using induced sputum cell counts to guide management of difficult-to-treat asthmatics
Background An ERS task force has recommended phenotype-based management in asthma. Knowledge of airway inflammation helps guide physicians9 decisions in difficult to treat cases where guideline-basedExpand
