Genome annotations are accumulating rapidly and depend heavily on automated annotation systems. Many genome centers offer annotation systems but no one has compared their output in a systematic way to determine accuracy and inherent errors. Errors in the annotations are routinely deposited in databases such as NCBI and used to validate subsequent annotation(More)
The present study addresses the effects of oxygen exposure on the aerobic and anaerobic respiratory activity of Desulfovibrio desulfuricans strain DvO1. This strain was isolated from the highest sulfate-reduction positive most-probable-number dilution (10(6)) of an activated sludge sample, which had been subjected to 120 h of continuous aeration. Washed(More)
A gram-positive bacterium Citricoccus nitrophenolicus (strain PNP1T, DSM 23311T, CCUG 59571T) isolated from a waste water treatment plant was capable of effectively degrading p-nitrophenol (pNP) as a source of carbon, nitrogen and energy for growth. Degradation of pNP required oxygen and resulted in the stoichiometric release of nitrite. Strain PNP1T also(More)
The kinetics of sulfate reduction and cell densities of sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) were determined in activated sludge at Aalborg East wastewater treatment plant, a modern 100 000 person equivalent plant, where SRB are subjected to alternating cycles of oxic and anoxic conditions. The number of SRB was relatively constant over the year, ranging from(More)
Cellulomonas uda (DSM 20108/ATCC 21399) is one of the few described cellulolytic facultative anaerobes. Based on these characteristics, we initiated a physiological study of C. uda with the aim to exploit it for cellulase production in simple bioreactors with no or sporadic aeration. Growth, cellulase activity and fermentation product formation were(More)
