Single-Cell Genome and Group-Specific dsrAB Sequencing Implicate Marine Members of the Class Dehalococcoidia (Phylum Chloroflexi) in Sulfur Cycling
ABSTRACT The marine subsurface sediment biosphere is widely inhabited by bacteria affiliated with the class Dehalococcoidia (DEH), phylum Chloroflexi, and yet little is known regarding theirExpand

Growth of Dehalococcoides mccartyi strain CBDB1 by reductive dehalogenation of brominated benzenes to benzene.
Brominated aromatics are used in many different applications but occur also naturally. Here, we demonstrate organohalide respiration and growth of Dehalococcoides mccartyi strain CBDB1 withExpand

Anaerobic microbial transformation of halogenated aromatics and fate prediction using electron density modeling.
Halogenated homo- and heterocyclic aromatics including disinfectants, pesticides and pharmaceuticals raise concern as persistent and toxic contaminants with often unknown fate. Remediation strategiesExpand

Manganese-oxidizing bacteria isolated from natural and technical systems remove cylindrospermopsin.
The cyanotoxin cylindrospermopsin was discovered during a drinking water-related outbreak of human poisoning in 1979. Knowledge about the degradation of cylindrospermopsin in waterbodies is limited.Expand

Anaerobic Dehalogenation of Chloroanilines by Dehalococcoides mccartyi Strain CBDB1 and Dehalobacter Strain 14DCB1 via Different Pathways as Related to Molecular Electronic Structure.
Dehalococcoides mccartyi strain CBDB1 and Dehalobacter strain 14DCB1 are organohalide-respiring microbes of the phyla Chloroflexi and Firmicutes, respectively. Here, we report the transformation ofExpand

Distinct Carbon Isotope Fractionation Signatures during Biotic and Abiotic Reductive Transformation of Chlordecone.
Chlordecone is a synthetic organochlorine pesticide, extensively used in banana plantations of the French West Indies from 1972 to 1993. Due to its environmental persistence and bioaccumulation, itExpand

Manganese-oxidizing bacteria form multiple cylindrospermopsin transformation products with reduced human liver cell toxicity.
Cylindrospermopsin (CYN) is a toxic alkaloid highly persistent in aquatic environments. Biological removal of CYN was described previously. However, no transformation products formed by biologicalExpand
