Selenium (Se) is an essential element for the cell that has multiple applications in medicine and technology; microorganisms play an important role in Se transformations in the environment. Here we report the previously unidentified ability of the soil bacterium Pseudomonas putida KT2440 to synthesize nanoparticles of elemental selenium (nano-Se) from(More)
A protein constituent of the outer membrane from Neisseria meningitidis (hereafter called P64K) has been crystallized using the hanging drop technique. Crystals are tetragonal with unit cell dimensions a = b = 136.84 A and c = 78.44 A, compatible with a single monomer of 64 kDa in the asymmetric unit. When exposed to high intensity synchrotron radiation,(More)
