Growth rate control of periplasmic product retention in Escherichia coli
The recombinant product is secreted to the periplasm in many processes where E. coli is used as host. One drawback with secretion is the undesired leakage of the periplasmic products to the medium.Expand
Metals and the Biology and Virulence of Brucella
Bacteria in the genus Brucella are important human and veterinary pathogens, and they require a variety of metals to support their physiology and metabolism. Mammals employ both metal limitation andExpand
Proteins of Mycobacterium bovis BCG Induced in the Wayne Dormancy Model
Two-dimensional electrophoresis showed a drastic up-regulation of the alpha-crystallin homolog, the putative response regulator Rv3133c, and the two conserved hypothetical proteins Rv2623 and RV2626c in dormant bacilli. Expand
Biology, Biodiversity and Application of Thermophilic Viruses
This chapter focuses on the application potential of thermophilic viruses and introduces recent results derived from studies of structural adaptations, functional genomics, metagenomics, virus–host interactions and virus life cycle, all areas with remarkable characteristics. Expand
Thermophilic and alkaliphilic Actinobacteria: biology and potential applications
The focus of the current review is on the diversity and potential applications of thermophilic and alkaliphilic actinobacteria, which are highly diverse in their taxonomy and morphology with a variety of adaptations for surviving and thriving in hostile environments. Expand
Microbial Metabolism: Importance for Environmental Biotechnology
Microorganisms are the main agents responsible for biogeochemical transformations of carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, iron, and other elements. The prokaryotic world (domains Archaea and Bacteria) presentsExpand

The prokaryotes are by far the most abundant organisms inhabiting planet Earth. They are also by far the most diverse, both metabolically and phylogenetically; they encompass the Bacteria and theExpand
Structural-functional specificity of the complexes of psychrotolerant soil actinomycetes
The application of fluorescent in situ hybridization (the FISH method) demonstrated that the metabolically active psychrotolerant representatives of the phylogenetic group of Actinobacteria comprise up to 30% of the total number of bacteria in prokaryotic microbial communities of oligotrophic peat bog and podzolic soils.

The physiological roles of carboxylases in different microbial pathways that range from autotrophy, carbon assimilation, and anaplerosis to biosynthetic and redox-balancing functions are discussed. Expand
7 The Symbiontic Nature of Metabolic Evolution
We discuss evolutionary aspects of metabolism, right from the beginning of life to the present day at various levels of organization, thereby including quantitative aspects on the basis of theExpand
