Biochemically, the syntrophic bacteria constitute the missing link in our understanding of anaerobic flow of carbon in the biosphere. The completed genome sequence of Syntrophus aciditrophicus SB, a model fatty acid- and aromatic acid-degrading syntrophic bacterium, provides a glimpse of the composition and architecture of the electron transfer and(More)
Community composition, succession, and performance were compared in three fluidized bed reactors (FBR) operated to test preemptive colonization and the influence of toluene compared with a mixture of benzene, toluene, and p-xylene (BTX) as feeds. One reactor was inoculated with toluene-degrading strains Pseudomonas putida PaW1, Burkholderia cepacia G4, and(More)
We used ethylcyclopentane (ECP) as a model alicyclic hydrocarbon and investigated its metabolism by a sulfate-reducing bacterial enrichment obtained from a gas condensate-contaminated aquifer. The enrichment coupled the consumption of ECP with the stoichiometrically expected amount of sulfate reduced. During ECP biodegradation, we observed the transient(More)
UNLABELLED Syntrophus aciditrophicus is a model syntrophic bacterium that degrades key intermediates in anaerobic decomposition, such as benzoate, cyclohexane-1-carboxylate, and certain fatty acids, to acetate when grown with hydrogen-/formate-consuming microorganisms. ATP formation coupled to acetate production is the main source for energy conservation by(More)
Anaerobic degradation of marine algae, seagrass and tropical climbing vines to produce a renewable energy source and the analysis of their anaerobic microbial communities Report Title Energy demand by contemporary societies and the excessive consumption of fossil fuels have impulsed research and the employment of renewable energy systems. It has been(More)
