The phenol-degrading solvent-tolerant bacterium Pseudomonas putida P8 changed its cell shape when grown in the presence of aromatic compounds such as phenol and 4-chlorophenol. The sizes of cells that had been growing after addition of different concentrations of the toxic compounds were measured using a coulter counter that calculates the sizes of the(More)
Stenotrophomonas sp. RMSK capable of degrading acenaphthylene as a sole source of carbon and energy was isolated from coal sample. Metabolites produced were analyzed and characterized by TLC, HPLC and mass spectrometry. Identification of naphthalene-1,8-dicarboxylic acid, 1-naphthoic acid, 1,2-dihydroxynaphthalene, salicylate and detection of key enzymes(More)
When grown with vaporized alkylphenols such as p-cresol as the sole carbon and energy source, several isolated Rhodococcus strains formed growth structures like miniature mushrooms, termed here specialized aerial architectures (SAA), that reached sizes of up to 0.8 mm in height. Microscopic examination allowed us to view the distinct developmental stages(More)
The solvent-tolerant bacterium Enterobacter sp. VKGH12 is able to grow in toxic concentrations of n-butanol up to 1.5 % (volume in volume) as the sole carbon and energy source. Morphology changes in the cells growing on increasing concentrations of n-butanol were observed. The size of the bacteria decreased with increasing concentrations of n-butanol, also(More)
In the presence of vaporized p-cresol, Pseudomonas alkylphenolia KL28 forms specialized aerial structures (SAS). A transposon mutant of strain KL28 (C23) incapable of forming mature SAS was isolated. Genetic analysis of the C23 mutant revealed the transposon insertion in a gene (ssg) encoding a putative glycosyltransferase, which is homologous to the(More)
Bacterial aerial growth with reductive cellular division and morphological development has not been reported from single-cell bacteria. Here we show that within 1 month of incubation in vaporized p-cresol, Pseudomonas sp. KL28 form shiny, highly branched specialized aerial structures of millimetre-scale diameter. The developmental process displayed(More)
A bacterial strain DGVK1 capable of using N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF) as sole source of carbon and nitrogen was isolated from the soil samples collected from the coalmine leftovers. The molecular phylogram generated using the complete sequence of 16S rDNA of the strain DGVK1 showed close links to the bacteria grouped under Brucellaceae family that belongs(More)
Genetic analysis of Bacteroides fragilis (BF) is hindered because of the lack of efficient transposon mutagenesis methods. Here, we describe a simple method for transposon mutagenesis using EZ::TN5, a commercially available system that we optimized for use in BF638R. The modified EZ::TN5 transposon contains an Escherichia coli conditional origin of(More)
The solvent-tolerant bacterium Enterobacter sp. VKGH12 is capable of utilizing n-butanol and contains an NAD+-dependent n-butanol dehydrogenase (BDH). The BDH from n-butanol-grown Enterobacter sp. was purified from a cell-free extract (soluble fraction) to near homogeneity using a 3-step procedure. The BDH was purified 15.37-fold with a recovery of only(More)
Two multidrug-resistant Bacteroides fragilis clinical isolates contain and express a novel nim gene, nimJ, that is not recognized by the "universal" nim primers and can confer increased resistance to metronidazole when introduced into a susceptible strain on a multicopy plasmid. HMW615, an appendiceal isolate, contains at least two copies of nimJ on its(More)
