Hydrophobins are morphogenetic, small secreted hydrophobic fungal proteins produced in response to changing development and environmental conditions. These proteins are important in the interaction between certain fungi and their hosts. In mutualistic ectomycorrhizal fungi several hydrophobins form a subclass of mycorrhizal-induced small secreted proteins(More)
The swimming behavior of Pseudomonas putida was analyzed with a tracking microscope to quantify its run time and turn angle distributions. Monte Carlo computer simulations illustrated that the bimodal turn angle distribution of P. putida reduced collisions with obstacles in porous media in comparison to the unimodal distribution of Escherichia coli.
The draft genomes of Thermus  tengchongensis YIM 77401 and T. caliditerrae YIM 77777 are 2,562,314 and 2,218,114 bp and encode 2,726 and 2,305 predicted genes, respectively. Gene content and growth experiments demonstrate broad metabolic capacity, including starch hydrolysis, thiosulfate oxidation, arsenite oxidation, incomplete denitrification, and(More)
Local chemical gradients can have a significant impact on bacterial population distributions within subsurface environments by evoking chemotactic responses. These local gradients may be created by consumption of a slowly diffusing nutrient, generation of a local food source from cell lysis, or dissolution of nonaqueous phase liquids trapped within the(More)
The draft genome of Kallotenue papyrolyticum JKG1(T), a member of the order Kallotenuales, class Chloroflexia, consists of 4,475,263 bp in 4 contigs and encodes 4,010 predicted genes, 49 tRNA-encoding genes, and 3 rRNA operons. The genome is consistent with a heterotrophic lifestyle including catabolism of polysaccharides and amino acids.
The draft genome of Thermocrinis jamiesonii GBS1T is 1,315,625 bp in 10 contigs and encodes 1,463 predicted genes. The presence of sox genes and various glycoside hydrolases and the absence of uptake NiFe hydrogenases (hyaB) are consistent with a requirement for thiosulfate and suggest the ability to use carbohydrate polymers.
