EXPERIMENTS WITH SOME MICROORGANISMS WHICH UTILIZE ETHANE AND HYDROGEN
TLDR
It was found that emergence of particular pigmented varieties, to the exclusion of others, can be predicted if the enrichment and isolation procedures follow a set pattern. Expand
Chemical activities of fungi
GERMINATION OF BACTERIAL SPORES WITH ALKYL PRIMARY AMINES
The germinative action of L-alanine, inosine, and related analogues are designated as "physiological germination" (Rode and Foster, 1960a) on the assumption that these substances may play a role inExpand
A Methane-Dependent Coccus, with Notes on Classification and Nomenclature of Obligate, Methane-Utilizing Bacteria
TLDR
A new coccus-shaped bacterium capable of aerobic growth at the expense of methane or methanol in a mineral salts medium is described and the prefix "Methylo-" is suggested as a solution to the problem of generic cognomens. Expand
Studies on some methane-utilizing bacteria
ALTERATIONS IN METAL CONTENT OF SPORES OF BACILLUS MEGATERIUM AND THE EFFECT ON SOME SPORE PROPERTIES
TLDR
Information on the participation of metal ions in the sporulation process and on their incorporation in spores deals mainly with calcium, which has led to the belief that calcium is rather specifically associated with the acquisition of heat resistance in bacterial spores. Expand
METHYL KETONE METABOLISM IN HYDROCARBON-UTILIZING MYCOBACTERIA
TLDR
Aliphatic alkane-utilizing mycobacteria were able to grow at the expense of several aliphatic methyl ketones as sole sources of carbon, indicating the occurrence of exchange reactions or of oxygenation reactions at a later stage in the assimilation of acetone and acetol. Expand
Bacterial oxidation of cycloparaffinic hydrocarbons
TLDR
A series of 10 branched-chain alkanes and 4 cycloalkanes were employed individually as elective culture substrates for bacteria in soil and metabolic products identified are consistent with the formation of a cyclomonoalcohol as the immediate precursor of the ketone. Expand
A bacterial riboflavin hydrolase.
TLDR
The present paper deals with the demonstration and characteristics of a bacterial cell-free enzyme which hydrolyzes rib oflavin to lumichrome and ribitol, and the name riboflavin hydrolase is proposed for this new enzyme. Expand
