Direct extraction of proteins from environmental samples
Abstract Two methods were developed and evaluated for extracting proteins from water, sediment, and soil samples. In the first method, microbial proteins were extracted from 1 g soil or sediment, orExpand

Petroleum industry and its pollution potential in Nigeria
The increased prominence of the petroleum industry in Nigeria since the 1960s has given rise to a concomitant upsurge of real and imagined ecological disturbances, especially in the oil-producingExpand

Transduction of linked chromosomal genes between Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains during incubation in situ in a freshwater habitat.
Both transduction of single chromosomal loci and cotransduction of closely linked loci were observed between lysogenic and nonlysogenic strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in a freshwater habitat.Expand

Interaction of Mercuric Ions with the Bacterial Growth Medium and Its Effects on Enzymatic Reduction of Mercury
The interaction of Hg2+ with components of Luria‐Bertani broth (LB), used to grow the mercury‐resistant strain Pseudomonas aeruginosa PU21 (Rip64), was studied using cold vapor atomic absorptionExpand

Transduction of a freshwater microbial community by a new Pseudomonas aeruginosa generalized transducing phage, UT1
A pseudolysogenic, generalized transducing bacteriophage, UT1, isolated from a natural freshwater habitat, is capable of mediating the transfer of both chromosomal andplasmid DNA between strains ofExpand

Potential for transduction of plasmids in a natural freshwater environment: effect of plasmid donor concentration and a natural microbial community on transduction in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Transduction of Pseudomonas aeruginosa plasmid Rms149 by the generalized transducing bacteriophage phi DS1 was shown to occur during a 9-day incubation of environmental test chambers in a freshwaterExpand

Microarray analysis of genes affected by salt stress in tomato
Large-scale gene expression affected by salt stress was analyzed with tomato seedlings ( Lycoperson  esculentum Mill cv. Money Maker) by a cDNA microarray (Tom1). The significantly differentiallyExpand
