Industrial applications of alkaliphiles and their enzymes – past, present and future
Alkaliphiles are microorganisms that can grow in alkaline environments, i.e. pH >9.0. Their enzymes, especially extracellular enzymes, are able to function in their catalytic activities under highExpand

Properties of motility in Bacillus subtilis powered by the H+-coupled MotAB flagellar stator, Na+-coupled MotPS or hybrid stators MotAS or MotPB.
Bacillus subtilis has a single set of flagellar rotor proteins that interact with two distinct stator-force generators, the H+-coupled MotAB complex and the Na+-coupled MotPS complex, that energizeExpand

Motility and chemotaxis in alkaliphilic Bacillus species.
Alkaliphilic Bacillus species grow at pH values up to approximately 11. Motile alkaliphilic Bacillus use electrochemical gradients of Na(+) (sodium-motive force) to power ion-coupled,Expand

The voltage-gated Na+ channel NaVBP co-localizes with methyl-accepting chemotaxis protein at cell poles of alkaliphilic Bacillus pseudofirmus OF4.
Na(V)BP, found in alkaliphilic Bacillus pseudofirmus OF4, is a member of the bacterial voltage-gated Na(+) channel superfamily. The alkaliphile requires Na(V)BP for normal chemotaxis responses andExpand

Na+ and flagella-dependent swimming of alkaliphilic Bacillus pseudofirmus OF4: a basis for poor motility at low pH and enhancement in viscous media in an “up-motile” variant
Flagella-based motility of extremely alkaliphilic Bacillus species is completely dependent upon Na+. Little motility is observed at pH values < ∼8.0. Here we examine the number of flagella/cell as aExpand

The relationship between a coiled morphology and Mbl in alkaliphilic Bacillus halodurans C-125 at neutral pH values
The facultative alkaliphilic Bacillus halodurans C-125 can grow in a pH range from 6.8 to 10.8. The morphology of the cells grown at pH values above 7.5 is rod shaped, whereas, that gown at pH valuesExpand
