Occurrence and sources of perfluorinated surfactants in rivers in Japan.
This is the first report to identify PFOA in several rivers, derived from nonsewage point sources, by using a marker of sewage effluent.
Ruegeria mobilis sp. nov., a member of the Alphaproteobacteria isolated in Japan and Palau.
The taxonomic positions of two bacterial strains isolated from marine environments of Japan and Palau, respectively, were determined by using a polyphasic approach and were considered to represent a novel species of the genus Ruegeria, for which the name Ruegersia mobilis sp.
Description of Komagataeibacter gen. nov., with proposals of new combinations (Acetobacteraceae).
The genus Gluconacetobacter Yamada et al. (2012) proposed the new genus Komagataeibacter (Komagatabacter) with 12 new combinations on the basis of these taxonomic characteristics, but the new name of the genus and the new combinations were not recognized in their validations.
Assessment of groundwater pollution in Tokyo using PPCPs as sewage markers.
The high occurrence rate of PPCPs, even in confined Aquifers, indicated that such aquifers are not always protected from pollution by sewage near the land surface, and carbamazepine and crotamiton were most frequently detected.
Bradyrhizobium iriomotense sp. nov., Isolated from a Tumor-Like Root of the Legume Entada koshunensis from Iriomote Island in Japan
A polyphasic study was performed to determine the taxonomic position of strain EK05T isolated from a root-outgrowth of Entada koshunensis, a legume available in Okinawa, Japan, and it was revealed that the isolate represents a distinct evolutionary lineage within the genus Bradyrhizobium.
Subdivision of the genus Gluconacetobacter Yamada, Hoshino and Ishikawa 1998: the proposal of Komagatabacter gen. nov., for strains accommodated to the Gluconacetobacter xylinus group in the
The genus Gluconacetobacter is divided into two groups phylogenetically, phenotypically and ecologically and the genus Komagatabacter is newly introduced, and the type species of the new genus is designated as Komag atabacter xylinus (Brown 1886) comb.
Gluconobacter japonicus sp. nov., an acetic acid bacterium in the Alphaproteobacteria.
Five strains were examined genetically, phylogenetically, phenotypically and chemotaxonomically and assigned as representing a novel species of the genus Gluconobacter, for which the name G. japonicus sp.
Tanticharoenia sakaeratensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a New Osmotolerant Acetic Acid Bacterium in the α-Proteobacteria
Three strains isolated from soil collected in Thailand formed a single species, which did not oxidize acetate or lactate, but grew on 30% D-glucose (w/v).
Gluconobacter uchimurae sp. nov., an acetic acid bacterium in the α-Proteobacteria.
In the genus Gluconobacter, thirteen species have been described to date: Gluconobacter oxydans, Gluconobacter cerinus, Gluconobacter frateurii, Gluconobacter asaii, Gluconobacter albidus,
Nguyenibacter vanlangensis gen. nov., sp. nov., an unusual acetic acid bacterium in the α-Proteobacteria.
In the systematic and ecological studies of acetic acid bacteria, the present authors found that a certain strain isolated from the natural environment of Vietnam was located in a unique phylogenetic position, name-ly, outside of the mainland of Vietnam.
