Bioremediation of soils contaminated with explosives.
The large-scale industrial production and processing of munitions such as 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) over the past 100 years led to the disposal of wastes containing explosives and nitrated organicExpand

Comparison of Bacterial Communities in New England Sphagnum Bogs Using Terminal Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (T-RFLP)
Wetlands are major sources of carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases released during microbial degradation. Despite the fact that decomposition is mainly driven by bacteria and fungi,Expand

Identification of an Extracellular Catalyst of Carbon Tetrachloride Dehalogenation from Pseudomonas stutzeri Strain KC as Pyridine-2,6-bis(thiocarboxylate)
Abstract Pseudomonas stutzeri strain KC was originally characterized as having, under iron-limiting conditions, novel carbon tetrachloride (CCl 4 ) dehalogenation activity, specifically, a netExpand

Osmoregulation in Rhizobium meliloti: Production of Glutamic Acid in Response to Osmotic Stress.
Rhizobium meliloti, like many other bacteria, accumulates high levels of glutamic acid when osmotically stressed. The effect was found to be proportional to the osmolarity of the growth medium. NaCl,Expand

The role of the siderophore pyridine-2,6-bis (thiocarboxylic acid) (PDTC) in zinc utilization by Pseudomonas putida DSM 3601
Previous work had suggested that in addition to serving the function of a siderophore, pyridine-2,6-bis(thiocarboxylic acid) (PDTC) may also provide producing organisms with the ability to assimilateExpand

A Pseudomonas stutzeri gene cluster encoding the biosynthesis of the CCl4-dechlorination agent pyridine-2,6-bis(thiocarboxylic acid).
A spontaneous mutant of Pseudomonas stutzeri strain KC lacked the carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) transformation ability of wild-type KC. Analysis of restriction digests separated by pulsed-field gelExpand

Relationship between intracellular sterol content and sterol esterification and hydrolysis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The relationship between the supply of free sterol and the synthesis of steryl esters by an auxotroph of Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been examined in order to understand the role of cellular freeExpand

Metal chelating properties of pyridine-2,6-bis(thiocarboxylic acid) produced by Pseudomonas spp. and the biological activities of the formed complexes
We evaluated the ability of pyridine-2,6-bis(thiocarboxylic acid) (pdtc) to form complexes with 19 metals and 3 metalloids. Pdtc formed complexes with 14 of the metals. Two of these metal:pdtcExpand

Transformation of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) by actinomycetes isolated from TNT-contaminated and uncontaminated environments.
Actinomycete strains isolated from 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT)-contaminated and uncontaminated environments were compared for TNT tolerance and abilities to transform TNT. Regardless of previous TNTExpand

Products of Anaerobic 2,4,6-Trinitrotoluene (TNT) Transformation by Clostridium bifermentans.
Experiments to elucidate the 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT)-transforming activity of Clostridium bifermentans LJP-1 identified reductive TNT transformations that ultimately produced as end productsExpand
