Two novel Gram-stain-negative, motile, catalase-negative and oxidase-positive strains of bacteria (JC131(T) and JC112) were isolated from Lonar, a soda lake in India. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity studies, strains JC131(T) and JC112 belong to the family Cohaesibacteraceae of the class Alphaproteobacteria and were most closely related to(More)
A Gram-stain-positive, aerobic, non-motile, coccoid bacterial strain, 36AT, was isolated from Munnar, in India. Based on the results of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, this strain was identified as representing a member of the genus Tersicoccus and was most closely related to the type strain of Tersicoccus phoenicis (98.9 %, sequence similarity), the only(More)
Two novel (18CT and 6C) Gram-stain-positive, rod shaped, motile and endospore-forming bacterial strains were isolated from Lonar soda lake, India. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strains 18CT and 6C were identified as belonging to the class Firmibacteria, and were most closely related to Bacillus cohnii KCTC 3572T (99.3 and 99.9%, respectively),(More)
Herein we report the draft genome sequence of a phototrophic bacterium, Rubrivivax benzoatilyticus strain JA2(T), which apparently is the first genome sequence report of a phototrophic member belonging to the class Betaproteobacteria. The unique feature of this strain is its capability to synthesize carotenoids through both spirilloxanthin and spheroidenone(More)
A Gram-stain positive, non-spore forming, non-motile, yellow-pigmented, rod shaped and coccoid aerobic strain designated 3bpT was isolated from Panagal reservoir, at Nalgonda, Telangana, India. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis it was identified that strain 3bpT belongs to the class Actinobacteria and is closely related to Cellulosimicrobium funkei(More)
Two novel Gram-stain-positive, facultatively anerobic, rod-shaped, motile, endospore-forming bacterial strains, 9DMT and 6DM, were isolated from Tuticorn, India. The high 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity (99.9 %) and DNA-DNA relatedness (88±2 %) indicated that strains 9DMT and 6DM were members of a single species. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis(More)
Two novel (14BT and 7B) Gram-stain-positive, rod-shaped, motile and endospore-forming bacterial strains were isolated from Lonar soda lake, India. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, the strains 14BT and 7B were identified as belonging to the class Firmibacteria and were most closely related to Bacillus halodurans LMG 7121T (99.7 and 99.8%,(More)
A Gram-stain-positive, aerobic, non-motile, rod-shaped, non-endospore-forming bacterial strain, 10CT, was isolated from Lonar soda lake in India. Based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, this strain was identified as belonging to the genus Nesterenkonia and was most closely related to the type strains of Nesterenkonia lacusekhoensis (99.1 %, sequence(More)
Electrogenic bacteria have evolved with a tendency to oxidize various organic matter and donate electrons to terminal electron acceptors. This forms the basis for power generation by microbe-driven fuel cells when these electro-active bacteria interact with electrodes. Depending on an electrode's potential for oxidation of an electron donor at an anode (E(More)
A novel bacterial strain, designated S5T, was isolated from Pingaleshwar beach, in India. Cells were Gram-stain-positive, rod-shaped, non-motile and non-endospore-forming. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, the strain was identified as belonging to the class Firmibacteria and was related most closely to Amphibacillus fermentum DSM 13869T (97.6 %(More)
