Legume-nodulating betaproteobacteria: diversity, host range, and future prospects.
Initial analyses of genome sequences have suggested that plant-associated Burkholderia spp. Expand
Legume symbiotic nitrogen fixation by beta-proteobacteria is widespread in nature.
Findings suggest that beta-rhizobia evolved from diazotrophs through multiple lateral nod gene transfers, strongly supporting the hypothesis of the unique origin of common nod genes. Expand
Burkholderia tuberum sp. nov. and Burkholderia phymatum sp. nov., nodulate the roots of tropical legumes.
The taxonomic status of five root nodule isolates from tropical legumes was determined using a polyphasic taxonomic approach and two isolates were identified as novel Burkholderia species for which it is proposed the names Burk holderia tuberum sp. Expand
Fermentative hydrogen production with Clostridium butyricum CGS5 isolated from anaerobic sewage sludge
Abstract A Clostridium butyricum strain, isolated from hydrogen-producing sewage sludge, was examined for its ability to produce H 2 from sucrose-based medium under different medium composition, pH,Expand
Scenedesmus obliquus CNW-N as a potential candidate for CO(2) mitigation and biodiesel production.
This study aimed to achieve higher CO(2) consumption ability and lipid productivity of an indigenous microalgal isolate Scenedesmus obliquus CNW-N by a two-stage cultivation strategy, which is superior to the results from most of the related studies. Expand
Metal biosorption capability of Cupriavidus taiwanensis and its effects on heavy metal removal by nodulated Mimosa pudica.
The results show that metal accumulation in the nodulated plant mainly occurred in the roots, accounting for 65-95% of total metal uptake, and seems to indicate the crucial role that the rhizobial strain may play in stimulating metal uptake of the nodulate plant. Expand
Nodulation of Cyclopia spp. (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae) by Burkholderia tuberum.
This work investigates whether Burkholderia tuberum strains STM678 and DUS833 can nodulate species of the South African endemic papilionoid genera Cyclopia (tribe Podalyrieae) and Aspalathus (Crotalarieae) as well as the promiscuous legume Macroptilium atropurpureum (Phaseoleae). Expand
Burkholderia spp. are the most competitive symbionts of Mimosa, particularly under N-limited conditions.
Competitive domination of PAS44 over LMG19424 was reduced in the presence of nitrate for all three plant hosts, and environmental N levels are suggested as a factor in the competitive success of the bacterial symbiont in vivo. Expand
Burkholderia mimosarum sp. nov., isolated from root nodules of Mimosa spp. from Taiwan and South America.
A polyphasic approach, including DNA-DNA reassociation, whole-cell protein analysis, fatty acid methyl ester analysis and extensive biochemical characterization, was used to clarify the taxonomic position of these strains. Expand
Dark H2 fermentation from sucrose and xylose using H2-producing indigenous bacteria: feasibility and kinetic studies.
The substrate preference of the H2-producing isolates was consistent with the bacterial community structure that existed in the bioreactor, showing that Cl. butyricum and Cl. pasteurianum were predominant in the cultures grown on xylose and sucrose, respectively. Expand
