ABSTRACT A newly isolated methanogen, strain DMS1T, is the first obligately anaerobic archaeon which was directly enriched and isolated from a freshwater sediment in defined minimal medium containing dimethyl sulfide (DMS) as the sole carbon and energy source. The use of a chemostat with a continuous DMS-containing gas stream as a method of enrichment, followed by cultivation in deep agar tubes, resulted in a pure culture. Since the only substrates utilized by strain DMS1T are methanol… Expand

Microbial Populations Involved in Cycling of Dimethyl Sulfide and Methanethiol in Freshwater Sediments
TLDR
The data from sediment incubation experiments, MPN series, and molecular-genetics detection correlated well and provide convincing evidence for the suggested mechanisms for MT and DMS cycling and the common presence of the DMS-degrading methanogen M. hollandica in freshwater sediments. Expand
Methanocella paludicola gen. nov., sp. nov., a methane-producing archaeon, the first isolate of the lineage 'Rice Cluster I', and proposal of the new archaeal order Methanocellales ord. nov.
TLDR
Based on comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain SANAET was affiliated with a clone lineage of the Archaea, Rice Cluster I (RC-I), placing it between the orders Methanosarcinales and Methanomicrobiales within the class 'Methanomicrobia'. Expand
Methanobacterium veterum sp. nov., from ancient Siberian permafrost.
TLDR
A methanogenic archaeon isolated from ancient permafrost after long-term selective anaerobic cultivation was assigned to a novel species of the genus Methanobacterium, MethanOBacterium veterum sp. Expand
Methanocella arvoryzae sp. nov., a hydrogenotrophic methanogen isolated from rice field soil.
TLDR
Although these strains shared phenotypic properties including cell morphology and substrate utilization, they differed with respect to susceptibility to antibiotics, and temperature and NaCl ranges for growth, indicating that strains MRE50 (T) and Methanocella paludicola SANAE(T) represent different species within the genus Methano cella.

Isolation and characterization of Methylophaga sulfidovorans sp. nov. : an obligately methylotrophic, aerobic, dimethylsulfide oxidizing bacterium from a microbial mat
TLDR
Sediment from a microbial mat from the South-West coast of the Netherlands consumed dimethylsulfide under oxic and anoxic conditions produced a Gram-negative, oval DMS oxidizing bacterium, strain RB-1, which was isolated and revealed the presence of the ribulose monophosphate pathway for carbon assimilation and the ability to use the linear dissimilatory pathway via formate to carbon dioxide.

Methanohalophilus zhilinae sp. nov., an alkaliphilic, halophilic, methylotrophic methanogen.
TLDR
Characterization of the 16S ribosomal ribonucleic acid sequence indicated that strain WeN5T is phylogenetically distinct from members of previously described genera other than Methanohalophilus and supported the partition of halophilic methanogens into their own genus. Expand
Methanohalophilus oregonense sp. nov., a methylotrophic methanogen from an alkaline, saline aquifer
TLDR
An examination of the subsurface sediments revealed no methanogens that were capable of growth on methanogenic substrates, such as H2-CO2, formate, or acetate, which is consistent with the results of other studies of hypersaline, sulfate-containing anoxic environments. Expand
Methylated sulfur compounds in microbial mats: in situ concentrations and metabolism by a colorless sulfur bacterium
TLDR
Continuous culture studies in which DMS was the growth-limiting substrate revealed a maximum specific growth rate of 0.10 h-1 and a saturation constant of 90 mumol liter-1 for aerobic growth on this substrate. Expand

A comparison of 16S rRNA sequences showed that strain B-1T was phylogenetically related to Methanolobus vulcani, but the sequences of these organisms differed by 2%. Expand

Role of Methanogens and Other Bacteria in Degradation of Dimethyl Sulfide and Methanethiol in Anoxic Freshwater Sediments
TLDR
Evidence is provided for methanogenesis as a major sink for MT and DMS in freshwater sediments and for a competition between sulfate-reducing and methanogenic bacteria for DMS or MT takes place in sulphate-rich freshwater systems. Expand

An electrophoretic analysis confirmed that strain HI350 is closely related to strain T4/MT and indicated that major changes in the intracellular proteins of M. siciliae HI350 occur when the growth substrate is switched between dimethyl sulfide and trimethylamine. Expand
