Methylocella silvestris sp. nov., a novel methanotroph isolated from an acidic forest cambisol.
The data suggest that strains BL2(T) and A1 represent a novel species of Methylocella; the name Methyla silvestris sp. Expand
Methylocella palustris gen. nov., sp. nov., a new methane-oxidizing acidophilic bacterium from peat bogs, representing a novel subtype of serine-pathway methanotrophs.
The three strains share identical 16S rRNA gene sequences and represent a novel lineage of methane-oxidizing bacteria within the alpha-subclass of the class Proteobacteria and are only moderately related to type II methanotrophs of the Methylocystis-Methylosinus group. Expand
Anoxybacillus pushchinensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel anaerobic, alkaliphilic, moderately thermophilic bacterium from manure, and description of Anoxybacillus flavitherms comb. nov.
A new strictly anaerobic, alkaliphilic, moderately thermophilic, fermentative, spore-forming bacterium, strain K1T, was isolated from manure samples (pH 6-8) and was assigned to the new genus Anoxybacillus gen. nov. Expand
Methylocapsa acidiphila gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel methane-oxidizing and dinitrogen-fixing acidophilic bacterium from Sphagnum bog.
A novel genus and species, Methylocapsa acidiphila gen. nov., sp. nov., are proposed for a methane-oxidizing bacterium isolated from an acidic Sphagnum peat bog. This bacterium, designated strainExpand
Acetate utilization as a survival strategy of peat-inhabiting Methylocystis spp.
A novel member of this genus, strain H2s, is described, which represents a numerically abundant and ecologically important methanotroph population in northern Sphagnum-dominated wetlands and demonstrates a clear preference for growth on methane but is able to grow slowly on acetate in the absence of methane. Expand
Methylocella tundrae sp. nov., a novel methanotrophic bacterium from acidic tundra peatlands.
A novel species, Methylocella tundrae, is proposed for three methanotrophic strains isolated from acidic Sphagnum tundRA peatlands, which possess a soluble methane monooxygenase and utilize the serine pathway for carbon assimilation. Expand
Taxonomic characterization of new alkaliphilic and alkalitolerant methanotrophs from soda lakes of the Southeastern Transbaikal region and description of Methylomicrobium buryatense sp.nov.
Comparative 16S rDNA sequencing showed that the newly isolated methanotrophs are related to membres of the Methylomicrobium genus, however, they differ from the known members of this genus by DNA-DNA relatedness. Expand
Bryobacter aggregatus gen. nov., sp. nov., a peat-inhabiting, aerobic chemo-organotroph from subdivision 3 of the Acidobacteria.
Three strains of slowly growing, chemo-organotrophic bacteria isolated from acidic Sphagnum peat bogs are proposed to accommodate Bryobacter aggregatus, a novel species in a new genus of acidotolerant, mesophilic organisms. Expand
Isolation and Characterization of Halotolerant Alkaliphilic Methanotrophic Bacteria from Tuva Soda Lakes
The changes in cell phospholipids, fatty acids, and amino acids have been observed upon varying salinity and pH of the medium, thus suggesting structure-function osmoadaptation of the strains studied. Expand
Bryocella elongata gen. nov., sp. nov., a member of subdivision 1 of the Acidobacteria isolated from a methanotrophic enrichment culture, and emended description of Edaphobacter aggregans Koch et al.
An aerobic, pink-pigmented, chemo-organotrophic bacterium, isolated from a methanotrophic enrichment culture obtained from an acidic Sphagnum peat, is classified within a novel genus and species, for which the name Bryocella elongata gen. nov., sp. Expand
