Biodegradation of High-Molecular-Weight Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons by Bacteria
Interest in the biodegradation mechanisms and environmental fate of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) is prompted by their ubiquitous distribution and their potentially deleterious effects on…

PCR Amplification and Direct Sequencing of gyrB Genes with Universal Primers and Their Application to the Detection and Taxonomic Analysis of Pseudomonas putida Strains
Vol. 61, no. 3, p. 1104, column 2, 5 lines from the bottom: "each of the primers at a concentration of 1 mM" should read "each of the primers at a concentration of 1 (mu)M." [This corrects the…

Research on the fate of petroleum in a marine environment is important to evaluate the environmental threat of oil spills, and to develop biotechnology to cope with them.
Bacteria Belonging to the Genus Cycloclasticus Play a Primary Role in the Degradation of Aromatic Hydrocarbons Released in a Marine Environment
ABSTRACT To identify the bacteria that play a major role in the aerobic degradation of petroleum polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in a marine environment, bacteria were enriched from seawater…
PCR amplification and direct sequencing of gyrB genes with universal primers and their application to the detection and taxonomic analysis of Pseudomonas putida strains
The direct sequencing method of gyrB developed in this study provides a rapid and convenient system for bacterial identification, taxonomic analysis, and monitoring of bacteria in the natural environment.
Functional and evolutionary relationships among diverse oxygenases.
Oxygenases that incorporate one or two atoms of dioxygen into substrates are found in many metabolic pathways and according to their sequence similarities, the oxygenases can be grouped into several protein families.
