Dynamic Transition of a Methanogenic Population in Response to the Concentration of Volatile Fatty Acids in a Thermophilic Anaerobic Digester
ABSTRACT In this study, the microbial community succession in a thermophilic methanogenic bioreactor under deteriorative and stable conditions that were induced by acidification and neutralization,Expand
Microbial community in anaerobic hydrogen-producing microflora enriched from sludge compost
Abstract. Hydrogen production by thermophilic anaerobic microflora enriched from sludge compost was studied by using an artificial medium containing cellulose powder. Hydrogen gas was evolved withExpand
Candidatus Methanogranum caenicola: a Novel Methanogen from the Anaerobic Digested Sludge, and Proposal of Methanomassiliicoccaceae fam. nov. and Methanomassiliicoccales ord. nov., for a Methanogenic
The class Thermoplasmata harbors huge uncultured archaeal lineages at the order level, so-called Groups E2 and E3. A novel archaeon Kjm51a affiliated with Group E2 was enriched from anaerobic sludgeExpand
Methanogenic pathway and community structure in a thermophilic anaerobic digestion process of organic solid waste.
The methanogenic pathway and microbial community in a thermophilic anaerobic digestion process of organic solid waste were investigated in a continuous-flow stirred-tank reactor using artificialExpand
Succession of bacterial and fungal communities during a traditional pot fermentation of rice vinegar assessed by PCR-mediated denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis.
Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) based on small subunit rRNA gene was applied to a traditional rice vinegar fermentation process in which the conversion of rice starch into acetic acidExpand
Amino Acid Substitutions in a Variant of IMP-1 Metallo-β-Lactamase
ABSTRACT In the course of surveying for the carbapenem-hydrolyzing metallo-β-lactamase gene blaIMP in pathogenic bacteria by the PCR method, we detected a gene encoding a variant metallo-β-lactamase,Expand
Diversification of Bacterial Community Composition along a Temperature Gradient at a Thermal Spring
To better understand the biogeography and relationship between temperature and community structure within microbial mats, the bacterial diversity of mats at a slightly alkaline, sulfide-containingExpand
Stable Coexistence of Five Bacterial Strains as a Cellulose-Degrading Community
ABSTRACT A cellulose-degrading defined mixed culture (designated SF356) consisting of five bacterial strains (Clostridium straminisolvens CSK1, Clostridium sp. strain FG4, Pseudoxanthomonas sp.Expand
Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis analyses of microbial community from field-scale composter.
The diversity of microbial community during the decomposition of waste in a field-scale composter (Hazaka system) was investigated by denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE). The composterExpand
Construction of a stable microbial community with high cellulose-degradation ability
Abstract. We bred a microbial community capable of degrading rice straw with high efficiency. The microbial community degraded more than 60% of rice straw within 4 days at 50 °C. The high stabilityExpand
