Enrichment, isolation and some properties of methane-utilizing bacteria.
The organisms were classified into five groups on the basis of morphology, fine structure, and type of resting stage formed (exospores and different types of cysts) and into subgroups on other properties. Expand
Oxidation of Ammonia by Methane-oxidizing Bacteria and the Effects of Ammonia on Methane Oxidation
Certain similarities between methane-oxidizing bacteria and ammonia-oxidizing bacteria suggest an evolutionary relationship (Wilkinson, I 971 ; Quayle, 1972)~ but the interactions ofExpand
Exopolysaccharide Colanic Acid and Its Occurrence in the Enterobacteriaceae
A study of strains from the genera Salmonella, Escherichia, and Aerobacter has shown that under appropriate conditions many strains produce an exopolysaccharide slime of identical composition, whichExpand
The influence of cultural conditions on polysaccharide production by Aerobacter aerogenes.
The polysaccharide: nitrogen ratio was increased 10–20-fold in cultures wherein cessation of growth was due to exhaustion of limited nitrogen, phosphorus or sulphur sources, so that an excess of sugar remained available for extra poly Saccharide synthesis. Expand
Advances in Microbial Physiology
This volume of Advances in Microbial Physiology continues the long tradition of topical and important reviews in microbiology * Contributions from leading authorities* Informs and updates on all theExpand
The isolation and estimation of the poly-beta-hydroxybutyrate inclusions of Bacillus species.
A simple and rapid method of estimating the poly-β-hydroxybutyrate content of Bacillus spp. Expand
Depolymerases for bacterial exopolysaccharides obtained from phage-infected bacteria.
Evidence is presented to show that the structural genes for enzyme production are located on the phage genome rather than on the bacterial genome, and one of the enzyme systems was unusual in that it was only produced following phage infection and lysis of mucoid host strains. Expand
The problem of energy-storage compounds in bacteria
Abstract It is probable that compounds are accumulated in bacteria which function primarily as energy reserves. The majority of these may also act as carbon reserves and one, polyphosphate, as aExpand
Enterobacteria associated with grass and silages
Enterobacteria were isolated from grass and silages and identified by the API 20E system. The effects of various ensiling treatments on their numbers and types were determined. The enterobacteriaExpand
