The members of the actinomycete genus Frankia are nitrogen-fixing symbionts of may species of woody dicotyledonous plants belonging to eight families. Several strains isolated from diverse actinorhizal plants growing in different geographical areas were used in this study. The phylogenetic relationships of these organisms and uncharacterized microsymbionts(More)
The phylogeny of bacteria belonging to the genus Nitrobacter was investigated by sequencing the whole 16S rRNA gene. The average level of similarity for the three Nitrobacter strains examined was high (99.2%), and the similarity level between Nitrobacter winogradskyi and Nitrobacter sp. strain LL, which represent two different genomic species, was even(More)
BACKGROUND In Germany, specialized out-patient palliative care systems (SPCS) are still structurally and organizationally under construction. Palliative care patients need an easy access to a qualified SPCS. The purpose of the present investigation was to show the nationwide distribution of all SPCS teams in comparison to the distribution of emergency(More)
Nanoparticles are essential building blocks for nanotechnology. In this paper we demonstrate a novel method to create nanoplatelets by thin film cracking. The thickness of the resulting platelets is determined by the film thickness, and their aspect ratio is controlled by the total strain and the elastic mismatch between substrate and thin film. Platelets(More)
The closer proximity of Frankia and Acidothermus cellulolyticus relative to the morphologically close Geodermatophilus found previously was confirmed by resequencing the rrs gene of Acidothermus cellulolyticus and the housekeeping gene, recA. The diagnostic sugar 2-O-methyl-D-mannose was detected only in Frankia, while hopanoid lipids were present at high(More)
BACKGROUND In the medical literature the Lazarus phenomenon is defined as the spontaneous return of circulation (SROC) after cessation of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. Based on published literature recommendations concerning the treatment of patients after cessation of resuscitation and reasons for the Lazarus phenomenon are discussed. METHODS A(More)
