The TetR Family of Transcriptional Repressors
SUMMARY We have developed a general profile for the proteins of the TetR family of repressors. The stretch that best defines the profile of this family is made up of 47 amino acid residues thatExpand

Electrically conductive bacterial nanowires produced by Shewanella oneidensis strain MR-1 and other microorganisms.
Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 produced electrically conductive pilus-like appendages called bacterial nanowires in direct response to electron-acceptor limitation. Mutants deficient in genes for c-typeExpand

Reconstitution of cellular immunity against cytomegalovirus in recipients of allogeneic bone marrow by transfer of T-cell clones from the donor.
BACKGROUND Cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease in immunocompromised patients correlates with a deficiency of CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes specific for CMV. We evaluated the safety and immunologic effectsExpand

Methanogenesis facilitated by electric syntrophy via (semi)conductive iron-oxide minerals.
Methanogenesis is an essential part of the global carbon cycle and a key bioprocess for sustainable energy. Methanogenesis from organic matter is accomplished by syntrophic interactions amongExpand

Restoration of viral immunity in immunodeficient humans by the adoptive transfer of T cell clones.
The adoptive transfer of antigen-specific T cells to establish immunity is an effective therapy for viral infections and tumors in animal models. The application of this approach to human diseaseExpand

Microbial interspecies electron transfer via electric currents through conductive minerals
In anaerobic biota, reducing equivalents (electrons) are transferred between different species of microbes [interspecies electron transfer (IET)], establishing the basis of cooperative behaviors andExpand

Substrate-induced gene-expression screening of environmental metagenome libraries for isolation of catabolic genes
Recent awareness that most microorganisms in the environment are resistant to cultivation has prompted scientists to directly clone useful genes from environmental metagenomes. Two screening methodsExpand

Sulfuricurvum kujiense gen. nov., sp. nov., a facultatively anaerobic, chemolithoautotrophic, sulfur-oxidizing bacterium isolated from an underground crude-oil storage cavity.
A facultatively anaerobic, chemolithoautotrophic, sulfur-oxidizing bacterium, strain YK-1(T), was isolated from an underground crude-oil storage cavity at Kuji in Iwate, Japan. The cells were motile,Expand

Plant/microbe cooperation for electricity generation in a rice paddy field
Soils are rich in organics, particularly those that support growth of plants. These organics are possible sources of sustainable energy, and a microbial fuel cell (MFC) system can potentially be usedExpand

Predominant growth of Alcanivorax strains in oil-contaminated and nutrient-supplemented sea water.
We found that bacteria closely related to Alcanivorax became a dominant bacterial population in petroleum-contaminated sea water when nitrogen and phosphorus nutrients were supplied in adequateExpand
