Endophytic Bacterial Diversity in Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Roots Estimated by 16S rDNA Sequence Analysis
TLDR
This is the first report that archaea has been identified as endophytes associated with rice by the culture-independent approach, and the results suggest that the diversity of endophytic bacteria is abundant in rice roots. Expand
Proteiniphilum acetatigenes gen. nov., sp. nov., from a UASB reactor treating brewery wastewater.
TLDR
A new genus and species, Proteiniphilum acetatigenes gen. nov., is proposed, with strain TB107T (=JCM 12891T=AS 1.5024T) as the type strain, with <91 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to the closest species with validly published names. Expand
Syntrophobacter sulfatireducens sp. nov., a novel syntrophic, propionate-oxidizing bacterium isolated from UASB reactors.
TLDR
Two obligate anaerobes, TB8106(T) and WZH410, which degraded propionate in syntrophic association with methanogens, were isolated from two upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactors, one treating brewery wastewater and the other bean curd wastewater, finding that the strains could not ferment fumarate, and grew at a more alkaline pH range than Syntrophobacter fumaroxidans. Expand
A complete sequence of the T. tengcongensis genome.
TLDR
It is concluded that thermophiles are a biologically and phylogenetically divergent group of prokaryotes that have converged to sustain extreme environmental conditions over evolutionary timescale. Expand
Species identification of genus Bifidobacterium based on partial HSP60 gene sequences and proposal of Bifidobacterium thermacidophilum subsp. porcinum subsp. nov.
TLDR
High levels of DNA-DNA relatedness and HSP60 gene sequence similarity were determined between B. thermacidophilum AS 1.2282(T) and strain P3-14(T), indicating a closer relationship between them, and a novel Bifidobacterium subspecies is designated. Expand
Methanosaeta harundinacea sp. nov., a novel acetate-scavenging methanogen isolated from a UASB reactor.
TLDR
Based on the phylogenetic and phenotypic analyses, the novel species Methanosaeta harundinacea sp. Expand
Characterization of a novel plant growth-promoting bacteria strain Delftia tsuruhatensis HR4 both as a diazotroph and a potential biocontrol agent against various plant pathogens.
TLDR
Comparisons of characteristics with other known species of the genus Delftia suggested that strain HR4 was a novel dizotrophic PGPB strain, and based on phenotypic, physiological, biochemical and phylogenetic studies, it could be classified as a member of D. tsuruhatensis. Expand
Prokaryote diversity in the rumen of yak (Bos grunniens) and Jinnan cattle (Bos taurus) estimated by 16S rDNA homology analyses.
TLDR
In both rumens, retrieved methanogenic Archaea-related 16S rDNA sequences were at an unreasonable low level; in addition, none sequence was related to Ruminococcus albus, a classical rumen fibrolytic species. Expand
Metagenomic Insights into the Fibrolytic Microbiome in Yak Rumen
TLDR
Findings suggest that the SucC/SucD-involving mechanism, instead of one based on cellulosomes or the free-enzyme system, serves a major role in lignocellulose degradation in yak rumen. Expand
Methanogen community in Zoige wetland of Tibetan plateau and phenotypic characterization of a dominant uncultured methanogen cluster ZC-I.
TLDR
The broad substrate spectrum identified the ZC-I methanogens to be a member of Methanosarcinaceae, and could represent a novel sub-branch specifically inhabited in cold ecosystems, and to be an important player in the methanogenesis of Zoige wetland. Expand
