Flammeovirga pacifica WPAGA1(T), which was isolated from sediment of the west Pacific Ocean in 2009 has the ability to produce agar-oligosaccharides from Gracilaria lemaneiformis directly by enzyme-degradation. The draft genome sequence of this strain was sequenced and annotated. Its draft genome contained 6,507,364 bp with a G+C content of 33.8%. Genome(More)
RDJLΦ2, a lytic phage that infects the marine bacterium Roseobacter denitrificans OCh114, one of the model organisms of the Roseobacter clade, was isolated. Here we report the overall genome architecture of RDJLΦ2. Morphological and genome analysis revealed that RDJLΦ2 is a siphovirus with a 63.5 kb genome that contains 76 putative gene products.
In this paper, we reported for the first time that Rhodobacter azotoformans was capable of synthesizing a spectral variant of peripheral light-harvesting complex (LH3), besides a high light form (LH2), in response to low light intensity. Carotenoid components in these complexes were analyzed by absorption spectra, high-pressure liquid chromatography and(More)
Arsenic (As) is widespread in the environment and causes numerous health problems. Rhodopseudomonas palustris has been regarded as a good model organism for studying arsenic detoxification since it was first demonstrated to methylate environmental arsenic by conversion to soluble or gaseous methylated species. However, the detailed arsenic resistance(More)
A phenanthrene-utilizing bacterium was anaerobically isolated and identified as Rhodopseudomonas palustris. It tolerated up to 100 mg phenanthrene l−1 and degraded 50% of 50 mg phenanthrene l−1 over 10 days. The presence of phenanthrene caused a prolonged lag phase (2–3 days) in cell growth and affected the photopigments biosynthesis, while DMSO (the(More)
OBJECTIVE To elucidate the arsenic metabolic pathway of purple nonsulfur bacteria (PNSB). METHODS We investigated the distribution within their genomes, organization, composition, arrangement, core genes and coding proteins of arsenic gene clusters found in complete genome from 17 strains of PNSB by comparing the genomes analysis, and studied the arsenic(More)
A bacterial strain ME16 was isolated from Jinyang Lake in Taiyuan of Shanxi Province, China. Gas chromatography analysis showed that the strain could use methane as the sole carbon and energy source. Based on 16S rDNA sequence analysis, the strain was identified as Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Effects of inoculum size, temperature, methane content and initial pH(More)
OBJECTIVE To exploit resources of purple sulfur bacteria in China and further investigate its response mechanism to ecological environment of mangrove. METHODS Repeated agar shake dilution method, microscope techniques, UV-Vis absorption spectra, thin layer chromatography, HPLC and MS were used. RESULTS We isolated a purple sulfur bacterium, designated(More)
The draft genome sequence of Marichromatium gracile YL-28 contains 3,840,251 bp, with a G+C content of 68.84%. The annotated genome sequence provides the genetic basis for revealing its role as a purple sulfur bacterium in the harvesting of energy and the development of bioremediation applications.
