Isolation and characterization of oligotrophic acido-tolerant methanogenic consortia from a Sphagnum peat bog.
Two dense and highly enriched (up to 10(9) cells ml(-1), <10% of bacterial satellites) acido-tolerant (pH 4.0-6.5) methanogenic consortia, '26' and 'K', were isolated from the peat beneath aExpand

New Approaches for Isolation of Previously Uncultivated Oral Bacteria
ABSTRACT A significant number of microorganisms from the human oral cavity remain uncultivated. This is a major impediment to the study of human health since some of the uncultivated species may beExpand

Polaromonas hydrogenivorans sp. nov., a psychrotolerant hydrogen-oxidizing bacterium from Alaskan soil.
Psychrotolerant (0-25 degrees C), chemolithotrophic Gram-negative cocci were isolated from Alaskan forest soil. The novel isolate was found to grow autotrophically on H(2) : CO(2) mixtures and toExpand

High-quality draft genome sequences of five anaerobic oral bacteria and description of Peptoanaerobacter stomatis gen. nov., sp. nov., a new member of the family Peptostreptococcaceae
Here we report a summary classification and the features of five anaerobic oral bacteria from the family Peptostreptococcaceae. Bacterial strains were isolated from human subgingival plaque. StrainsExpand

Growth kinetics of microorganisms isolated from Alaskan soil and permafrost in solid media frozen down to -35 degrees C.
We developed a procedure to culture microorganisms below freezing point on solid media (cellulose powder or plastic film) with ethanol as the sole carbon source without using artificial antifreezes.Expand
