Lampropedia cohaerens strain CT6T, a non-motile, aerobic and coccoid strain was isolated from arsenic rich microbial mats (temperature ~45 °C) of a hot water spring located atop the Himalayan ranges at Manikaran, India. The present study reports the first genome sequence of type strain CT6T of genus Lampropedia cohaerens. Sequencing data was generated using the Illumina HiSeq 2000 platform and assembled with ABySS v 1.3.5. The 3,158,922 bp genome was assembled into 41 contigs with a mean GC…

Here, we present the draft genome sequence of Deinococcus sp. strain S9, a red-pigmented and moderately thermophilic bacterium isolated from microbial mat deposits around the hot springs at

Microbiological studies of hot springs in India: a review

The possibilities of extrapolating these studies for practical applications and environmental impact assessment towards protection of natural ecosystem of hot springs have also been discussed.

Hot Springs of India: Occurrence and Microbial Diversity

This chapter focuses on some important Indian hot springs, their locations, components, and importance, and much emphasis is placed on understanding their microbial diversity, including culture dependent, as well as independent methods.

Microbial Genomics and Metagenomics in India: Explorations and Perspectives

This paper presents a meta-anatomy of the response of the immune system to the presence of carbon dioxide in the air and investigates its role in the development of infectious disease.

Comparative metagenomic analyses of a high-altitude Himalayan geothermal spring revealed temperature-constrained habitat-specific microbial community and metabolic dynamics

This is a correlative study between three major habitats present in geothermal spring environment, i.e., water, sediment and microbial mats revealing greater phylogenetic and functional dispersion emphasizing changing habitat-specific dynamics with temperature.



Lampropedia cohaerens sp. nov., a biofilm-forming bacterium isolated from microbial mats of a hot water spring, and emended description of the genus Lampropedia.

A biofilm-forming, Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, catalase-positive but oxidase-negative strain, isolated from the microbial mats of a hot water spring, located within the Himalayan ranges at Manikaran, Himachal Pradesh, India, was found to have phosphatidylethanolamine andosphatidylglycerol as the major polar lipids.

Thermus parvatiensis RLT sp. nov., Isolated from a Hot Water Spring, Located Atop the Himalayan Ranges at Manikaran, India

Strain RLT represents a novel species of the genus Thermus for which the name Thermus parvatiensis is proposed (=DSM 21745T= MTCC 8932T).

Arsenic rich Himalayan hot spring metagenomics reveal genetically novel predator-prey genotypes.

Metagenomic assembly analysis of the microbial mats of an arsenic rich, hot spring was performed to describe the genotypes of the predator Bdellovibrio and the ecogenetically adapted taxa Enterobacter, and analysed the population level evolutionary dynamics (taxonomical and functional) of reconstructed genotypes.

Lampropedia puyangensis sp. nov., isolated from symptomatic bark of Populus × euramericana canker and emended description of Lampropedia hyalina (Ehrenberg 1832) Lee et al. 2004

Based on molecular data and physiological and biochemical characteristics, strain 2-binT is considered to represent a novel species in the genus Lampropedia, for which the name Lampropia puyangensis sp.

Emended description of the species Lampropedia hyalina.

Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses on three Lampropedia hyalina strains from different habitats showed that they are all very similar and that they form a distinct group among the 'Betaproteobacteria', and fluorescent in situ hybridization with oligonucleotide probes supported the conclusion that all investigated strains are members of the ' Betaproteinobacteria.

(Meta)genomic insights into the pathogenome of Cellulosimicrobium cellulans

Using reference genomes and metagenomic data, the results highlight the emergence and evolution of PAIs in the genus Cellulosimicrobium.

Draft Genome Sequence of Cellulosimicrobium sp. Strain MM, Isolated from Arsenic-Rich Microbial Mats of a Himalayan Hot Spring

ABSTRACT Microbial mats situated at the Manikaran hot springs (>95°C) are characterized by their high arsenic content (140 ppb), qualifying as a stressed niche. Here, we report the annotated draft

Draft Genome Sequence of Deinococcus sp. Strain RL Isolated from Sediments of a Hot Water Spring

The draft genome of Deinococcus strain RL, a moderately thermophilic bacterium, was isolated from sediments of a hot water spring in Manikaran, India, which contains 62 contigs and 2,614 coding DNA sequences, with an average G+C content of 69.4%.

Biological phosphorus removal by pure culture of Lampropedia spp.

Reaction mechanisms of the multicopper oxidase CueO from Escherichia coli support its functional role as a cuprous oxidase.

Steady-state kinetics demonstrated that the intact anion [Cu(I)(Bca)(2)](3-), not "free" Cu(+), is the substrate that donates Cu(I) directly to T4, suggesting that square-CueO, not Cu(II)-Cue O, is the resting form of the cuprous oxidase.
