The Archaea and the deeply branching and phototrophic bacteria
Volume 1 provides descriptions of 407 species in 157 genera, including 172 new or realigned species. History, Etymology, Polyphasic taxonomy, Probes, Phylogenetic backbone, Microbial ecology, CultureExpand
[3] Culturing methods for cyanobacteria
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the culturing methods for cyanobacteria, and identifies three major systems of classification: Geitler, Drouet, and Stanier systems. Expand
CHARACTERIZATION AND BIOLOGICAL IMPLICATIONS OF SCYTONEMIN, A CYANOBACTERIAL SHEATH PIGMENT 1
TLDR
Results strongly suggest that scytonemin production constitutes an adaptive strategy of photoprotection against short‐wavelength solar irradiance. Expand
A thermophilic green sulfur bacterium from New Zealand hot springs, Chlorobium tepidum sp. nov.
TLDR
The new phototrophs are described as a new species of the genus Chlorobium, Ch chlorobium tepidum, which is positioned phylogenetically within the green sulfur bacterial branch of the domain Bacteria. Expand
EVIDENCE FOR AN ULTRAVIOLET SUNSCREEN ROLE OF THE EXTRACELLULAR PIGMENT SCYTONEMIN IN THE TERRESTRIAL CYANOBACTERIUM Chiorogloeopsis sp.
TLDR
Observations provide strong evidence for the proposed protective role of scytonemin, as a passive UV‐A sunscreen, in cyanobacteria. Expand
Thermophilic blue-green algae and the thermal environment.
TLDR
This article corrects the article on p. 485 in vol. Expand
A phototrophic gliding filamentous bacterium of hot springs, Chloroflexus aurantiacus, gen. and sp. nov.
TLDR
Chloroflexus is unique in that there have been no previous reports of filamentous or gliding phototrophic bacteria and the combinations of bacteriochlorophylls a and c and the presence of chlorobium vesicles in a photoheterotroph and in an organism capable of aerobic growth are also unique. Expand
Phylum BX. Cyanobacteria
TLDR
Members of the Prochlorales simply represent different, unrelated genera which fall into the main cluster of the Cyanobacteria (see Oxygenic Photosynthetic Bacteria, below). Expand
Growth and photosynthesis in an extreme thermophile, Synechococcus lividus (Cyanophyta)
TLDR
The data suggest that the photosynthetic system could be involved in determining both the upper and lower limits of growth in this organism. Expand
Biogeographic and Phylogenetic Diversity of Thermoacidophilic Cyanidiales in Yellowstone National Park, Japan, and New Zealand
TLDR
The phylogenetic diversity of culture isolates of the Cyanidiales from habitats throughout Yellowstone National Park, three areas in Japan, and seven regions in New Zealand was examined by using the chloroplast RuBisCO large subunit gene (rbcL) and the 18S rRNA gene. Expand
