Generic assignments, strain histories, and properties of pure cultures of cyanobacteria
Revisions are designed to permit the generic identification of cultures, often difficult through use of the field-based system of phycological classification, and are both constant and readily determinable in cultured material. Expand
Purification and properties of unicellular blue-green algae (order Chroococcales).
Electron microscopic investigations, together with analytical data on cell wall composition and ribosomal structure, have revealed the common denominators, which are fundamental: bacteria and blue-green algae are the only organisms with cells of the procaryotic type. Expand
The aerobic pseudomonads: a taxonomic study.
SUMMARY A collection of 267 strains, representing many of the principal biotypes among aerobic pseudomonads, has been subjected to detailed study, with particular emphasis on biochemical,Expand
Kinetic studies of pigment synthesis by non-sulfur purple bacteria.
A study of the Moraxella group. II. Oxidative-negative species (genus Acinetobacter).
Neither the hydrolysis of gelatin nor acid production from aldose sugars was found to be a reliable index of strain affinities indicated by the phenotypic analysis, although both properties were of some use in distinguishing between the subgroups. Expand
Phototrophic prokaryotes: the cyanobacteria.
The Conversion of Catechol and Protocatechuate to β-Ketoadipate by Pseudomonas putida I. BIOCHEMISTRY
Abstract Two new intermediates were identified in the protocatechuate pathway of Pseudomonas putida. The first of these, γ-carboxymuconolactone (γ-carboxy-γ-carboxymethyl-Δα-butenolide), is theExpand
Patterns of growth and development in pleurocapsalean cyanobacteria.
Selective isolation of blue-green algae from water and soil.
Temperature is a selective factor of major importance for the isolation of blue-green algae from soil and fresh water, and in a nutritionally non-selective mineral medium, the development of eucaryotic algae was almost completely suppressed by incubation at 35°. Expand
