The Complete Genome of Comamonas testosteroni Reveals Its Genetic Adaptations to Changing Environments
TLDR
This study conclusively revealed at the genomic level that the genetic versatility of C. testosteroni is vital for competition with other bacteria in its special niches.
Alicyclobacillus aeris sp. nov., a novel ferrous- and sulfur-oxidizing bacterium isolated from a copper mine.
TLDR
Strain ZJ-6(T) possessed a number of phenotypic characteristics that differentiated it from recognized Alicyclobacillus species, including its growth temperature, assimilation of various carbon sources, production of acids from a range of compounds, and the ability to grow chemoautotrophically using ferrous iron, elemental sulfur and tetrathionate as electron donors.
Adhaeribacter terreus sp. nov., isolated from forest soil.
TLDR
It is concluded that strain DNG6(T) represents a novel species of the genus Adhaeribacter, for which the name Adhaerribacter terreus is proposed, with strain CGMCC 1.6961(T)=NBRC 104235(T)) as the type strain.
Phycicoccus cremeus sp. nov., isolated from forest soil, and emended description of the genus Phycicoccus.
TLDR
It is concluded that strain V2M29(T), isolated from forest soil collected in the Changbai Mountains, Heilongjiang Province, China, represents a novel species of the genus Phycicoccus, for which the name PhyCICoccus cremeus sp.
Agrococcus terreus sp. nov. and Micrococcus terreus sp. nov., isolated from forest soil.
TLDR
Combining phenotypic and genotypic traits, strain DNG5T represents a novel species of the genus Agrococcus, for which the name Micrococcus terreus sp.
Nocardioides terrae sp. nov., isolated from forest soil.
TLDR
It is concluded that strain VA15(T), isolated from forest soil of the Changbai Mountains, Heilongjiang Province, China, represents a novel species of the genus Nocardioides, for which the name N Cardioides terrae sp.
Frateuria terrea sp. nov., isolated from forest soil, and emended description of the genus Frateuria.
TLDR
Based on its phenotypic and genotypic features, strain VA24(T) represents a novel species of the genus Fr Amateuria, for which the name Frateuria terrea sp.
Sphingomonas changbaiensis sp. nov., isolated from forest soil.
TLDR
Analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain V2M44(T) was phylogenetically related to members of the genus Sphingomonas, with sequence similarities ranging from 92.0-95.8 %.
Structures of aminophenol dioxygenase in complex with intermediate, product and inhibitor.
TLDR
The Fe-ligand binding schemes observed in these structures revealed some common geometrical characteristics that are shared by the published structures of extradiol dioxygenases, suggesting that enzymes that catalyse the oxidation of noncatecholic compounds are very likely to utilize a similar strategy for dioXYgen activation and the fission of aromatic rings as the canonical mechanism.
Crystallization and preliminary crystallographic analysis of 2-aminophenol 1,6-dioxygenase complexed with substrate and with an inhibitor.
TLDR
Crystals of the holoenzyme with FeII and of complexes with the substrate 2-aminophenol and the suicide inhibitor 4-nitrocatechol were grown using the cocrystallization method under the same conditions as used for the crystallization of the apoenzyme.
