Recent results, showing that the ubiquitous methane-utilizing bacteria (methanotrophs) can partially oxidize and, in some cases, extensively metabolize complex organic compounds, call for a reappraisal of their role in the cycling of elements in the biosphere. Possible environmental implications and opportunities for industrial exploitation are discussed.
A number of herpesviruses have been isolated from cattle. Members of the bovine herpesvirus group are infectious bovine rhinotraeheitis (IBR), infectious bovine keratoconjunetivitis (IBKC), bovine mammilitis (BM), Allerton and malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) viruses. Recently, IBKC virus has been shown to be the same as I B R virus (3). B A ~ A et al. (1)(More)
Potomac horse fever, a recently recognized disease of equines, characterized by high fever, leukopenia, and a profuse diarrhea, was studied for its etiology. An Ehrlichia organism was isolated in equine macrophage-fibroblast cell cultures and mouse macrophage cell cultures from the mononuclear cells of blood of infected horses. The agent was continuously(More)
BACKGROUND Herpes simplex-1 virus (HSV-1) reactivation in the respiratory tract is common in intensive care unit (ICU) patients. However, susceptible ICU populations are poorly defined. Clinical recognition of HSV infection of the respiratory tract is difficult and the impact of such reactivation is not understood. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective(More)
