CO I Barcoding Reveals New Clades and Radiation Patterns of Indo-Pacific Sponges of the Family Irciniidae (Demospongiae: Dictyoceratida)
It is shown that the CO1 marker identifies several species new to science, reveals separate radiation patterns of deep-sea Ircinia sponges and indicates dispersal patterns of Psammocinia species. Expand
Diversity and disparity ‘down under’: Systematics, biogeography and reproductive modes of the ‘marsupial’ freshwater Thiaridae (Caenogastropoda, Cerithioidea) in Australia
Based on a new taxonomic framework for the Thiaridae, some of the pertinent problems with naming and artificial delineation of species are pointed out, revealing why typology and earlier practice of splitting was misleading in case of these truly “Darwinian snails”. Expand
Effect of a Glyphosate-Containing Herbicide on Escherichia coli and Salmonella Ser. Typhimurium in an In Vitro Rumen Simulation System
Application of the glyphosate-containing formulation in a worst-case concentration of 10 mg/L neither increased the abundance for the tested E. coli and Salmonella strain in the in vitro fermentation system, nor promoted resistance to glyphosate or antibiotics. Expand
Minimum Inhibitory Concentration of Glyphosate and a Glyphosate-Containing Herbicide in Salmonella enterica Isolates Originating from Different Time Periods, Hosts, and Serovars
A bacteriostatic effect of glyphosate on Salmonella growth was detected at the concentration range of 10 to 80 mg/mL for both the active ingredient and the ready-to-use formulation. Expand
Minimum Inhibitory Concentration of Glyphosate and of a Glyphosate-Containing Herbicide Formulation for Escherichia coli Isolates – Differences Between Pathogenicand Non-pathogenic Isolates and
Analysis of a large set of recent and historical E. coli isolates varying in pathogenicity and beta-lactam resistance from different host species for their susceptibility to glyphosate isopropylamine salt (IPA), the active ingredient of the herbicide, and to a complete glyphosate-containing formulation (Roundup LB Plus) revealed small but significant associations between glyphosate resistance levels and different factors tested. Expand
Quantification of glyphosate and AMPA from microbiome reactor fluids.
The method presented here allows quantitation of glyphosate and AMPA in complex bioreactor fluids and thus enables studies on the impact of glyphosateand its metabolism on the intestinal microbiota and is compatible with an untargeted metabolomics analysis. Expand
The glyphosate formulation Roundup® LB plus influences the global metabolome of pig gut microbiota in vitro.
This multi-omics approach provides evidence for subtle metabolic effects of Roundup® LB plus under the conditions applied, and identifies some effects on the functional level. Expand
Selection for Resistance to a Glyphosate-Containing Herbicide in Salmonella enterica Does Not Result in a Sustained Activation of the Tolerance Response or Increased Cross-Tolerance and
While transient exposure toGBH triggers cellular tolerance response in Salmonella enterica, this response does not become genetically fixed after selection for resistance to GBH and does not result in increased cross-tolerance or cross-resistance to clinically important antibiotics under the authors' experimental conditions.
