Alcanivorax dieselolei sp. nov., a novel alkane-degrading bacterium isolated from sea water and deep-sea sediment.
Results of physiological and biochemical tests, DNA-DNA hybridization, comparisons of 16S-23S internal transcribed spacer sequences and comparisons of the partial deduced amino acid sequence of alkane hydroxylase showed that both strains were affiliated to the genus Alcanivorax but were differentiated from recognized Alcanvorax species.

Thalassospira xiamenensis sp. nov. and Thalassospira profundimaris sp. nov.
Two bacterial strains, M-5T and WP0211T, were isolated from the surface water of a waste-oil pool in a coastal dock and from a deep-sea sediment sample from the West Pacific Ocean and it is suggested that these isolates represent two novel species of the genus Thalassospira. Expand
Gene diversity of CYP153A and AlkB alkane hydroxylases in oil-degrading bacteria isolated from the Atlantic Ocean.
Various oil-degrading bacteria, which harboured diverse P450 and alkB genes, were found in the surface water of Atlantic Ocean. Expand
PmAV, a novel gene involved in virus resistance of shrimp Penaeus monodon1
Investigation of an antiviral gene from shrimp Penaeus monodon found to have an open reading frame encoding a 170 amino acid peptide with a C‐type lectin‐like domain suggests that the antiviral mechanism of PmAV protein is not by inhibiting the attachment of virus to target host cell. Expand
Multiple alkane hydroxylase systems in a marine alkane degrader, Alcanivorax dieselolei B-5.
These findings demonstrate that the multiple alkane hydroxylase systems ensure the utilization of substrates of a broad chain length range. Expand
Biodiversity of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-degrading bacteria from deep sea sediments of the Middle Atlantic Ridge
Results confirm that bacteria of Cycloclasticus are important obligate PAH degraders in marine environments, and coexist with other degrading bacteria that inhabit the deep subsurface sediment of the Atlantic, and supports the view that PAH accumulation and bioattenuation occur in remote areas consistently and continuously.

Roseovarius pacificus sp. nov., isolated from deep-sea sediment.
Phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data support assignment of this strain to the genus Roseovarius as a representative of a novel species. Expand
Leisingera nanhaiensis sp. nov., isolated from marine sediment.
An aerobic, Gram-staining-negative, motile, rod-shaped bacterium, strain NH52F(T), was isolated from a sandy sediment sample taken from the South China Sea and should be classified as a representative of a novel species in the genus Leisingera. Expand
Distribution of PAHs and the PAH-degrading bacteria in the deep-sea sediments of the high-latitude Arctic Ocean
PAHs and PAH-degrading bacteria were widespread in the deep-sea sediments of the Arctic Ocean and it is proposed that bacteria of Cycloclasticus, Pseudomonas, Pseudoalteromonas and Dietzia may play the most important role in PAH mineralization in situ. Expand
Characteristics and flocculating mechanism of a novel bioflocculant HBF-3 produced by deep-sea bacterium mutant Halomonas sp. V3a’
A novel bioflocculant HBF-3 produced by deep-sea bacterium mutant Halomonas sp. V3a’ was investigated with regard to its flocculating characteristics and mechanism. 4.0 m g l−1 HBF-3 showed theExpand
