Glucose uptake by the cellulolytic ruminal anaerobe Bacteroides succinogenes.
Glucose uptake by Bacteroides succinogenes S85 was measured under conditions that maintained anaerobiosis and osmotic stability. Uptake was inhibited by compounds which interfere with electronExpand

Synthesis of guanosine tetra- and pentaphosphates by the obligately anaerobic bacterium Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron in response to molecular oxygen.
Guanosine 5'-diphosphate 3'-diphosphate (ppGpp) and guanosine 5'-triphosphate 3'-diphosphate (pppGpp) were detected in formic acid extracts of air-exposed culutres of Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron.Expand

Biotransformation of 16-dehydroprogesterone by the intestinal anaerobic bacterium, Eubacterium sp. 144.
Eubacterium sp. 144 biotransformed 16-dehydroprogesterone by initially hydrating approx 50% to 16 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone. The detection of this reaction was dependent, in part, on the solubilityExpand

16α-Dehydration of corticoids by bacteria isolated from rat fecal flora
Abstract Two strains (No. 144 and No. 146) of rat intestinal anaerobic bacteria, phenotypically similar to Eubacterium lentum, were isolated and found capable of 16α-dehydrating corticoids. TheExpand

Biotransformation of 16 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone by Eubacterium sp. 144: non-enzymatic addition of L-cysteine to delta 16-progesterone.
Eubacterium sp. 144 dehydroxylated 16 alpha-hydroxy-progesterone; however, the expected intermediate, delta 16-progesterone, did not accumulate to significant concentrations in the culture medium.Expand

Transformation of 4-androsten-3,17-dione by growing cultures and cell extracts of Clostridium paraputrificum.
Growing cultures of Clostridium paraputrificum transformed 4-androsten-3,17-dione to 3 alpha-hydroxy-5 beta-androstan-17-one in a sequential manner with 5 beta-androstan-3,17-dione as anExpand

Characterization of a pyridine nucleotide-nonspecific glutamate dehydrogenase from Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron.
An oxidized nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate/oxidized nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADP+/NAD+) nonspecific L-glutamate dehydrogenase from Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron was purifiedExpand

Cellobiose uptake by the cellulolytic ruminal anaerobe Fibrobacter (Bacteroides) succinogenes.
Cellobiose transport by the cellulolytic ruminal anaerobe Fibrobacter (Bacteroides) succinogenes was measured using randomly tritiated cellobiose. When assayed at the same concentration (1 mM), totalExpand
