A new genus, Methylarcula, with two new species, Methylarcula marina and Methylarcula terricola, are proposed for strains h1T and h37T of moderately halophilic facultatively methylotrophic bacteria isolated from the coastal saline habitats. These methylobacteria are aerobic, Gram-negative, asporogenous, non-motile, colourless rods that multiply by binary(More)
A moderately haloalkaliphilic and obligately methylotrophic bacterium (strain M39T) with the ribulose monophosphate pathway of carbon assimilation is described. Cells of this methanol and methylamine utilizer are aerobic, Gram-negative, asporogenous, motile short rods, multiplying by binary fission. It is auxotrophic for vitamin B12 and requires NaHCO3 or(More)
A new, moderately haloalkaliphilic and restricted-facultatively methylotrophic bacterium (strain Bur2T) with the ribulose monophosphate pathway of carbon assimilation is described. The isolate, which utilizes methanol, methylamine and fructose, is an aerobic, Gram-negative, asporogenous, motile short rod multiplying by binary fission. It is auxotrophic for(More)
This paper deals with the physiological, biochemical, and molecular genetic aspects of the interaction of aerobic methylotrophic bacteria with plants by means of phytohormones (such as cytokinins and auxins) and other physiologically active substances (vitamins, exopolysaccharides, bioprotectants, and others). An overview of the field and the prospects of(More)
Two strains of aerobic methanotrophic bacteria, AR4(T) and SOP9, were isolated from acidic (pH 3.8-4.0) Sphagnum peat bogs in Russia. Another phenotypically similar isolate, strain LAY, was obtained from an acidic (pH 4.0) forest soil in Germany. Cells of these strains were Gram-negative, non-pigmented, non-motile, thin rods that multiplied by irregular(More)
Obligately and facultatively methylotrophic bacteria with different pathways of C1 metabolism were found to be able to produce auxins, particularly indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), in amounts of 3–100 μg/ml. Indole-3-pyruvic acid and indole-3-acetamide were detected only in methylobacteria with the serine pathway of C1 metabolism (Methylobacterium(More)
Eight strains of Gram-negative, aerobic, asporogenous, neutrophilic, mesophilic, facultatively methylotrophic bacteria are taxonomically described. These icl- serine pathway methylobacteria utilize dichloromethane, methanol and methylamine as well as a variety of polycarbon compounds as the carbon and energy source. The major cellular fatty acids of the(More)
Optimal conditions for batch cultivation of the obligate methanotroph Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b on methane without superatmospheric pressure were chosen. The yield of absolutely dry biomass after 120 h of growth reached 20 g/l. This biomass contained 30% poly-β-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) with molecular weight 300 kDa. The growth process included the stages(More)
A new genus, Methylopila, and one new species are described for a group of seven strains of facultatively methylotrophic bacteria with the serine pathway of C1 assimilation. These bacteria are aerobic, Gram-negative, non-spore--forming, motile, colourless rods that multiply by binary fission. Their DNA base content ranges from 66 to 70 mol % G + C. Their(More)
Two strains of Gram-negative, aerobic, non-pigmented, non-motile, rod-shaped bacteria were isolated from beechwood blocks during decay by the white-rot fungus Hypholoma fasciculare and were designated strains BW863(T) and BW872. They are capable of methylotrophic growth and assimilate carbon via the ribulose-bisphosphate pathway. In addition to methanol,(More)
