Bacillus foraminis sp. nov., isolated from a non-saline alkaline groundwater.
On the basis of the phylogenetic analyses and the distinct phenotypic characteristics, strain CV53T represents a novel species within the genus Bacillus, for which the name Bacillus foraminis sp.
The Chromate-Inducible chrBACF Operon from the Transposable Element TnOtChr Confers Resistance to Chromium(VI) and Superoxide
ABSTRACT Large-scale industrial use of chromium(VI) has resulted in widespread contamination with carcinogenic chromium(VI). The abilities of microorganisms to survive in these environments and to
Leucobacter chromiireducens sp. nov, and Leucobacter aridicollis sp. nov., two new species isolated from a chromium contaminated environment.
On the basis of the distinct peptidoglycan composition, 16S ribosomal DNA sequence analysis, percentage of DNA-DNA reassociation values, and phenotypic characteristics it is of the opinion that strain L-1T represents a new species of the genus Leucobacter for which the name LeucOBacter chromiireducens is proposed.
Natural Hot Spots for Gain of Multiple Resistances: Arsenic and Antibiotic Resistances in Heterotrophic, Aerobic Bacteria from Marine Hydrothermal Vent Fields
Genes coding for heavy metal resistance and antibiotic resistance in the same mobile element were found, suggesting the possibility of horizontal gene transfer and distribution of theses resistances in the bacterial population.
Diversity of Bacteria Associated with Bursaphelenchus xylophilus and Other Nematodes Isolated from Pinus pinaster Trees with Pine Wilt Disease
A high diversity of the microbial community associated with B. xylophilus and other nematodes isolated from P. pinaster with PWD showed the ability to produce siderophores and lipases enables these bacteria to have a role in plant physiological response.
Heterotrophic plate counts and the isolation of bacteria from mineral waters on selective and enrichment media.
The heterotrophic plate counts of 15 brands of bottled non-carbonated mineral waters were examined and found to be generally high and variable, and considerable variation in populations was seen between the brands.
