Use of Repetitive DNA Sequences and the PCR To DifferentiateEscherichia coli Isolates from Human and Animal Sources
TLDR
Results indicate that rep-PCR performed with the BOX A1R primer may be a useful and effective tool for rapidly determining sources of fecal pollution. Expand
Complete Nucleotide Sequence and Organization of the Atrazine Catabolic Plasmid pADP-1 from Pseudomonassp. Strain ADP
TLDR
Insight is provided into how plasmids are structured, and thus evolve, to encode the catabolism of compounds recently added to the biosphere by revealing the complete structure of a catabolic plasmid and showing that the atrazine catabolic genes are dispersed on three disparate regions of the plasmID. Expand
Presence and Growth of Naturalized Escherichia coli in Temperate Soils from Lake Superior Watersheds
TLDR
The first report of the growth of naturalized E. coli in nonsterile, nonamended soils in northern temperate soils is reported, which may confound the use of this bacterium as an indicator of fecal contamination. Expand
Standardized Frozen Preparation for Transplantation of Fecal Microbiota for Recurrent Clostridium difficile Infection
TLDR
Standardization of material preparation significantly simplified the practical aspects of FMT without loss of apparent efficacy in clearing recurrent CDI in patients failing antibiotic therapy. Expand
Arthrobacter aurescens TC1 Metabolizes Diverse s-Triazine Ring Compounds
TLDR
Arthrobacter aurescens TC1 is metabolically diverse and grew on a wider range of s-triazine compounds than any bacterium previously characterized and was metabolized to alkylamines and cyanuric acid, the latter accumulating stoichiometrically. Expand
Legumes Symbioses: Absence of Nod Genes in Photosynthetic Bradyrhizobia
TLDR
It is shown by complete genome sequencing of two symbiotic, photosynthetic, Bradyrhizobium strains, BTAi1 and ORS278, that canonical nodABC genes and typical lipochito-oligosaccharidic Nod factors are not required for symbiosis in some legumes. Expand
Secrets of Soil Survival Revealed by the Genome Sequence of Arthrobacter aurescens TC1
TLDR
The data presented here suggest that Arthrobacter's environmental prevalence may be due to its ability to survive under stressful conditions induced by starvation, ionizing radiation, oxygen radicals, and toxic chemicals. Expand
The Atrazine Catabolism Genes atzABC Are Widespread and Highly Conserved
TLDR
It is shown that five geographically distinct atrazine-degrading bacteria contain genes homologous to atzA, -B, and -C, which indicates that globally distributed atrazines are highly conserved in diverse genera of bacteria. Expand
Frequency and Distribution of Tetracycline Resistance Genes in Genetically Diverse, Nonselected, and Nonclinical Escherichia coli Strains Isolated from Diverse Human and Animal Sources
TLDR
E. coli isolates from pigs and chickens were the only strains to have tetM, the first report of tetM in E. coli, and Muliplex PCR analyses indicated that these strains contained at least 1 of 14 tetracycline resistance genes examined. Expand
Proposed Minimal Standards for the Description of New Genera and Species of Root- and Stem-Nodulating Bacteria
TLDR
The current status of “Rhizobium” taxonomy is reviewed and minimal standards for the description of future genera and species belonging to this group of organisms are proposed. Expand
