Dynamic Transition of a Methanogenic Population in Response to the Concentration of Volatile Fatty Acids in a Thermophilic Anaerobic Digester
ABSTRACT In this study, the microbial community succession in a thermophilic methanogenic bioreactor under deteriorative and stable conditions that were induced by acidification and neutralization,Expand
Microbial community in anaerobic hydrogen-producing microflora enriched from sludge compost
Abstract. Hydrogen production by thermophilic anaerobic microflora enriched from sludge compost was studied by using an artificial medium containing cellulose powder. Hydrogen gas was evolved withExpand
Differential expression of multiple terminal oxidases for aerobic respiration in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa has five terminal oxidases for aerobic respiration. Two of them, the bo(3) oxidase (Cyo) and the cyanide-insensitive oxidase (CIO), are quinol oxidases and the other three, theExpand
Enzymatic characterization and in vivo function of five terminal oxidases in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
The ubiquitous opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa has five aerobic terminal oxidases: bo(3)-type quinol oxidase (Cyo), cyanide-insensitive oxidase (CIO), aa3-type cytochrome c oxidaseExpand
Methanogenic pathway and community structure in a thermophilic anaerobic digestion process of organic solid waste.
The methanogenic pathway and microbial community in a thermophilic anaerobic digestion process of organic solid waste were investigated in a continuous-flow stirred-tank reactor using artificialExpand
Succession of bacterial and fungal communities during a traditional pot fermentation of rice vinegar assessed by PCR-mediated denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis.
Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) based on small subunit rRNA gene was applied to a traditional rice vinegar fermentation process in which the conversion of rice starch into acetic acidExpand
Stable Coexistence of Five Bacterial Strains as a Cellulose-Degrading Community
ABSTRACT A cellulose-degrading defined mixed culture (designated SF356) consisting of five bacterial strains (Clostridium straminisolvens CSK1, Clostridium sp. strain FG4, Pseudoxanthomonas sp.Expand
Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis analyses of microbial community from field-scale composter.
The diversity of microbial community during the decomposition of waste in a field-scale composter (Hazaka system) was investigated by denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE). The composterExpand
A novel enzyme, citryl‐CoA lyase, catalysing the second step of the citrate cleavage reaction in Hydrogenobacter thermophilus TK‐6
A novel enzyme catalysing citryl‐CoA cleavage to acetyl‐CoA and oxaloacetate was purified from Hydrogenobacter thermophilus TK‐6, and designated citryl‐CoA lyase (CCL). The citrate cleavage reactionExpand
Construction of a stable microbial community with high cellulose-degradation ability
Abstract. We bred a microbial community capable of degrading rice straw with high efficiency. The microbial community degraded more than 60% of rice straw within 4 days at 50 °C. The high stabilityExpand
