Dynamic Transition of a Methanogenic Population in Response to the Concentration of Volatile Fatty Acids in a Thermophilic Anaerobic Digester
ABSTRACT In this study, the microbial community succession in a thermophilic methanogenic bioreactor under deteriorative and stable conditions that were induced by acidification and neutralization,Expand
Microbial community in anaerobic hydrogen-producing microflora enriched from sludge compost
Abstract. Hydrogen production by thermophilic anaerobic microflora enriched from sludge compost was studied by using an artificial medium containing cellulose powder. Hydrogen gas was evolved withExpand
Hydrogenobacter thermophilus gen. Nov., sp. Nov., an extremely thermophilic, aerobic, hydrogen-oxidizing bacterium
Six strains of strictly thermophilic, obligately chemolithotrophic, hydrogen-oxidizing bacteria were isolated from hot springs located in Izu and Kyushu, Japan. The bacterial strains which we testedExpand
Candidatus Methanogranum caenicola: a Novel Methanogen from the Anaerobic Digested Sludge, and Proposal of Methanomassiliicoccaceae fam. nov. and Methanomassiliicoccales ord. nov., for a Methanogenic
The class Thermoplasmata harbors huge uncultured archaeal lineages at the order level, so-called Groups E2 and E3. A novel archaeon Kjm51a affiliated with Group E2 was enriched from anaerobic sludgeExpand
Differential expression of multiple terminal oxidases for aerobic respiration in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa has five terminal oxidases for aerobic respiration. Two of them, the bo(3) oxidase (Cyo) and the cyanide-insensitive oxidase (CIO), are quinol oxidases and the other three, theExpand
Methanogenic pathway and community structure in a thermophilic anaerobic digestion process of organic solid waste.
The methanogenic pathway and microbial community in a thermophilic anaerobic digestion process of organic solid waste were investigated in a continuous-flow stirred-tank reactor using artificialExpand
Identification of iron-reducing microorganisms in anoxic rice paddy soil by 13C-acetate probing
In anoxic rice field soil, ferric iron reduction is one of the most important terminal electron accepting processes, yet little is known about the identity of iron-reducing microorganisms. Here, weExpand
Cascade regulation of the two CRP/FNR‐related transcriptional regulators (ANR and DNR) and the denitrification enzymes in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
ANR, an analogue of Escherichia coli FNR, has been shown to be necessary for denitrification, arginine deiminase activity and cyanide production of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Another CRP/FNR‐relatedExpand
Succession of bacterial and fungal communities during a traditional pot fermentation of rice vinegar assessed by PCR-mediated denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis.
Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) based on small subunit rRNA gene was applied to a traditional rice vinegar fermentation process in which the conversion of rice starch into acetic acidExpand
Hydrogenophilus thermoluteolus gen. nov., sp. nov., a thermophilic, facultatively chemolithoautotrophic, hydrogen-oxidizing bacterium.
The taxonomic positions of 'Pseudomonas hydrogenothermophila' strain TH-1 and 'Flavobacterium autothermophilum' strain TH-4 were studied by 16S rDNA sequencing. These organisms are Gram-negative,Expand
