Anaerosporomusa subterranea gen. nov., sp. nov., a spore-forming anaerobe belonging to the class Negativicutes isolated from saprolite.
Based on 92 % sequence similarity of the 16S rRNA gene to its closest relatives in the family Sporomusaceae and divergent physiological traits, the newly-cultivated isolate was assigned to a novel species of a new genus, Anaerosporomusa subterranea gen. nov.
Alteration of yellow traffic paint in simulated environmental and biological fluids.
Mineralogical Characterization and Dissolution Experiments in Gamble’s Solution of Tremolitic Amphibole from Passo di Caldenno (Sondrio, Italy)
A multi-analytical characterization of asbestos from Valmalenco with data from dissolution experiments conducted in a simulated interstitial lung fluid (Gamble’s solution), and a detailed dimensional study that compares the particle population before and after this interaction are combined.

Based on phylogenetic and phylogenomic analyses in addition to physiological and biochemical characteristics, both strains were found to represent a novel species within the genus Geothermobacter, for which the name GeotherMobacter hydrogeniphilus sp.
DISSOLUTION EXPERIMENTS OF YELLOW TRAFFIC PAINT CONTAINING LEAD CHROMATE (PBCRO4)
Microscopic Investigations of Yellow Traffic Paint Particles Subjected to Aqueous Dissolution
Experimental studies on fermentative firmicutes from anoxic environments: isolation, evolution, and their geochemical impacts
- Jessica K. Choi
The data suggests that the ancestor to the Firmicutes was originally didermic and that A. subterranea may represent ancestral lineage, and the potential for Clostridium species to perform Fe(III) reduction in contaminated environments and may be relevant towards bioremediation is indicated.
