From anaerobic enrichments with 2,3-butanediol as sole substrate pure cultures of new Gram-negative, strictly anaerobic, non-sporeforming bacteria were isolated. Similar isolates were obtained with acetoin as substrate. From marine muds in saltwater medium a short rod (strain Gra Bd 1) was isolated which fermented butanediol, acetoin and ethylene glycol to acetate and ethanol. The DNA base ratio of this strain was 52.3 mol% guanine plus cytosine.From freshwater sediments and sewage sludge, a… Expand

Oxidation of primary aliphatic alcohols by Acetobacterium carbinolicum sp. nov., a homoacetogenic anaerobe
TLDR
Four strains of new homoacetogenic bacteria were enriched and isolated from freshwater sediments and sludge with ethanol, propanol, 1,2-propanediol, or 1, 2-butanediol as substrates and methane was formed in coculture with methanogens, probably due to interspecies hydrogen transfer. Expand

TLDR
From marine anoxic mud, a new strictly anaerobic, Gram-negative, non-sporeforming bacterium was isolated with 3-hydroxybutyrate as substrate and type strain CuHbu1 is described as type strain of a new genus and species, Ilyobacter polytropus gen. sp. Expand

Several new substrates for Desulfovibrio vulgaris strain Marburg and a spontaneous mutant from it
TLDR
Experimental evidence was obtained, suggesting that 2-methoxyethanol was not utilized by all the cells of strain marburg, but by a spontaneous mutant, and 2-MethoxyEthanol was oxidized to methoxyacetate by the mutant. Expand
Pathway of propionate formation from ethanol in Pelobacter propionicus
Whole cells of Pelobacter propionicus fermented (1-13C) ethanol and CO2 to nearly equal amounts of (2-13C) and (3-13C) propionate and to (1-13C) acetate indicating a randomizing pathway of propionateExpand
New motile anaerobic bacteria growing by succinate decarboxylation to propionate
TLDR
Three strains of new anaerobic, gram-negative bacteria which grew with succinate as sole source of carbon and energy were isolated from anoxic marine and freshwater mud samples, and moderate activities of avidin-sensitive methylmalonyl-CoA decarboxylase were found in cell-free extracts of all strains.

A rod-shaped, gram-negative, propionigenic bacterium with a wide substrate range and the ability to fix molecular nitrogen
TLDR
Asp 66 did not require vitamins and grew well in mineral media with a fermentable substrate and was able to fix N2 as evidenced by its growth with N1 as sole nitrogen source and its ability to reduce acetylene to ethylene. Expand
