DNA toroids: framework for DNA repair in Deinococcus radiodurans and in germinating bacterial spores.
Bacteria belonging to the family Deinococcaceae survive exposure to >1.5 megarads of ionizing irradiation or to extreme desiccation without lethality or mutagenesis (2, 31, 35). This toleranceExpand

Ring-like nucleoids and DNA repair through error-free nonhomologous end joining in Deinococcus radiodurans.
Shortly after its isolation from canned ground meat in 1956, the bacterium Micrococcus radiodurans, later reclassified as Deinococcus radiodurans, was found to be capable of withstanding radioactiveExpand
