Stable Coexistence of Five Bacterial Strains as a Cellulose-Degrading Community
ABSTRACT A cellulose-degrading defined mixed culture (designated SF356) consisting of five bacterial strains (Clostridium straminisolvens CSK1, Clostridium sp. strain FG4, Pseudoxanthomonas sp.Expand
Construction of a stable microbial community with high cellulose-degradation ability
Abstract. We bred a microbial community capable of degrading rice straw with high efficiency. The microbial community degraded more than 60% of rice straw within 4 days at 50 °C. The high stabilityExpand
Clostridium straminisolvens sp. nov., a moderately thermophilic, aerotolerant and cellulolytic bacterium isolated from a cellulose-degrading bacterial community.
A novel anaerobic, thermophilic and cellulolytic bacterium (strain CSK1(T)) was isolated from a cellulose-degrading bacterial community. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, strainExpand
Diversity of a mesophilic lignocellulolytic microbial consortium which is useful for enhancement of biogas production.
A mesophilic lignocellulolytic microbial consortium BYND-5, established by successive subcultivation, was applied to enhance the biogas production. The degradation efficiency of BYND-5 for rice strawExpand
Effects of water-soluble carbohydrate content on silage fermentation of wheat straw.
To determine a suitable initial water-soluble carbohydrate (WSC) content to make wheat straw natural fermentation successful and to study fermentation characteristics, glucose was used to adjust theExpand
Changes in acetylene reduction activities and effects of inoculated rhizosphere nitrogen-fixing bacteria on rice
Acetylene reduction activities (ARAs) of soils and rice plants during rice-growing season were monitored in temperate region in northeast China. This activity was significantly higher in rhizosphereExpand
Effective cellulose degradation by a mixed-culture system composed of a cellulolytic Clostridium and aerobic non-cellulolytic bacteria.
A stable cellulose-degrading microflora enriched from composting materials has been analyzed in our laboratory. Cellulose-degrading efficiency of an anaerobic cellulolytic isolate, ClostridiumExpand
Effect of dairy manure to switchgrass co-digestion ratio on methane production and the bacterial community in batch anaerobic digestion
The methane yield and microbial community resulting from co-digestion of dairy manure and switchgrass at different mixing ratios [4:0, 3:1, 2:2, 1:3, and 0:4 based on total solids (TS) content] wereExpand
Bioreactor performance and methanogenic population dynamics in a low-temperature (5-18 °C) anaerobic fixed-bed reactor.
The effect of temperature on the functionality of microbial community structure in a low temperature, anaerobic fixed-bed reactor was studied by decreasing the operating temperature from 18 °C to 5Expand
Selection and characteristics of a switchgrass-colonizing microbial community to produce extracellular cellulases and xylanases.
A microbial community was selected for growth on dried and NaOH-treated switchgrass. During a 14-day liquid cultivation, a 70% loss in dry weight was observed during the first 4 days and after 14Expand
