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.

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.

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.

These findings demonstrate that the multiple alkane hydroxylase systems ensure the utilization of substrates of a broad chain length range.
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.
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.
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.
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 the…
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.
