Methylocella palustris gen. nov., sp. nov., a new methane-oxidizing acidophilic bacterium from peat bogs, representing a novel subtype of serine-pathway methanotrophs.
The three strains share identical 16S rRNA gene sequences and represent a novel lineage of methane-oxidizing bacteria within the alpha-subclass of the class Proteobacteria and are only moderately related to type II methanotrophs of the Methylocystis-Methylosinus group. Expand
Methylocella silvestris sp. nov., a novel methanotroph isolated from an acidic forest cambisol.
The data suggest that strains BL2(T) and A1 represent a novel species of Methylocella; the name Methyla silvestris sp. Expand
Metabolic aspects of aerobic obligate methanotrophy.
This chapter discusses the metabolic aspects of aerobic obligate methanotrophy, a unique group of gram-negative bacteria that use methane as carbon and energy source and a vital role in the global methane cycle. Expand
Methylocapsa acidiphila gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel methane-oxidizing and dinitrogen-fixing acidophilic bacterium from Sphagnum bog.
A novel genus and species, Methylocapsa acidiphila gen. nov., sp. nov., are proposed for a methane-oxidizing bacterium isolated from an acidic Sphagnum peat bog. This bacterium, designated strainExpand
Highly efficient methane biocatalysis revealed in a methanotrophic bacterium.
It is demonstrated that methane assimilation is coupled with a highly efficient pyrophosphate-mediated glycolytic pathway, which under oxygen limitation participates in a novel form of fermentation-based methanotrophy, suggesting a novel mode of methane utilization in oxygen-limited environments.

Methylocella tundrae sp. nov., a novel methanotrophic bacterium from acidic tundra peatlands.
A novel species, Methylocella tundrae, is proposed for three methanotrophic strains isolated from acidic Sphagnum tundRA peatlands, which possess a soluble methane monooxygenase and utilize the serine pathway for carbon assimilation. Expand
Aerobic Methylobacteria Are Capable of Synthesizing Auxins
Obligately and facultatively methylotrophic bacteria with different pathways of C1 metabolism were found to be able to produce auxins, particularly indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), in amounts of 3–100Expand
Methylothermus thermalis gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel moderately thermophilic obligate methanotroph from a hot spring in Japan.
A novel moderately thermophilic methanotroph, strain MYHT(T), was isolated from a hot spring in Japan and found to be a Gram-negative aerobe, with colourless colonies of non-motile coccoid cells, possessing type I intracytoplasmic membranes and regularly arranged surface layers of linear (p2) symmetry. Expand
Methylocystis heyeri sp. nov., a novel type II methanotrophic bacterium possessing 'signature' fatty acids of type I methanotrophs.
16S rRNA gene sequence and pmoA phylogeny demonstrated that the strains form a novel lineage within the genus Methylocystis, a novel species of methanotrophic bacteria isolated from an acidic lake and tropical forest soil. Expand
Classification of halo(alkali)philic and halo(alkali)tolerant methanotrophs provisionally assigned to the genera Methylomicrobium and Methylobacter and emended description of the genus
Based on the results presented here and on previously reported morphological and physiological characteristics, these halotolerant and halophilic methanotrophic strains are classified as representing novel species within the genus Methylomicrobium. Expand
