Cadmium uptake and nitrogen fixing ability in heavy-metal-resistant laboratory and field strains of Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar trifolii
Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii produced mucoid colonies on yeast mannitol agar, but non-mucoid colonies appeared with a frequency of 10−7 on agar additionally containing 4 mM ZnCl2. Cells…
The pattern and kinetics of substrate metabolism of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli
Aims: The main aim was to investigate the patterns and kinetics of substrate oxidation by Campylobacter jejuni and C. coli.
Survival and Nodulating Ability of Indigenous and Inoculated Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar trifolii in Sterilized and Unsterilized Soil Treated with Sewage Sludge
Although population size varied widely, there was no consistent correlation with soil heavy metal concentration, and metal-resistant strains with non-mucoid colonies survived less well than mucoid metal-sensitive strains.
Catabolism in mollicutes.

The small genome size of mollicutes, and particularly mycoplasmas and ureaplasmas, precludes their possession of the extensive range of metabolic activities present in most other bacterial groups.…
Hydrogen Peroxide Production by Mycoplasma bovis and Mycoplasma agalactiae and Effect of In Vitro Passage on a Mycoplasma bovis Strain Producing High Levels of H2O2
Preliminary studies show that not only does H2O2 production by potentially pathogenicMycoplasma spp.
Trisodium phosphate increases sensitivity of gram-negative bacteria to lysozyme and nisin.
The results suggest that the high TSP concentrations needed for successful decontamination of gram-negative bacteria, on the surface of poultry and other foodstuffs, may be substantially reduced by following TSP treatment with exposure to low lysozyme or nisin concentrations.

The metabolism of 51 strains within the ‘Mycoplasma mycoides cluster’ was investigated by measuring oxygen uptake following the addition of organic substrates to washed cell suspensions. There were…

Oxidation of glycerol differentiates African from European isolates of Mycoplasma mycoides subspecies mycoides SC (small colony)
It is reported here that isolates from recent European outbreaks of CBPP lack glycerol-oxidising ability, while those of African and Australian origin and biochemically similar are reported here.
