Purple sulfur bacteria store sulfur as intracellular globules enclosed by a protein envelope. The proteins associated with sulfur globules of Chromatium vinosum and Thiocapsa roseopersicina were isolated by extraction into 50% aqueous acetonitrile containing 1% trifluoroacetic acid and 10 mM dithiothreitol. The extracted proteins were separated by reversed-phase HPLC, revealing three major proteins from C. vinosum and two from T. roseopersicina. All of these proteins have similar, rather… Expand
A Comparative Quantitative Proteomic Study Identifies New Proteins Relevant for Sulfur Oxidation in the Purple Sulfur Bacterium Allochromatium vinosum
TLDR
Changes in protein levels generally matched those observed for the respective relative mRNA levels in a previous study and allowed identification of new genes/proteins participating in oxidative sulfur metabolism and identified a new sulfur globule protein (SgpD; Alvin_2515). Expand
Bacterial Sulfur Globules: Occurrence, Structure and Metabolism
Reduced sulfur compounds such as sulfide, polysulfides, thiosulfate, polythionates, and elemental sulfur are oxidized by a large and diverse group of prokaryotes, including the phototrophic sulfurExpand
The role of the sulfur globule proteins of Allochromatium vinosum: mutagenesis of the sulfur globule protein genes and expression studies by real-time RT-PCR
During oxidation of reduced sulfur compounds, the purple sulfur bacterium Allochromatium vinosum stores sulfur in the periplasm in the form of intracellular sulfur globules. The sulfur in theExpand

TLDR
Pursuing the characteristics of other intracellular sulfur globule-forming bacteria through genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics will eventually lead to a complete picture of their formation and breakdown. Expand
The family Chromatiaceae
The Chromatiaceae is a family of the Chromatiales within the Gammaproteobacteria and closely related to the Ectothiorhodospiraceae. Representatives of both families are referred to as phototrophicExpand
Mechanisms of extracellular S0 globule production and degradation in Chlorobaculumtepidum via dynamic cell-globule interactions.
The Chlorobiales are anoxygenic phototrophs that produce solid, extracellular elemental sulfur globules as an intermediate step in the oxidation of sulfide to sulfate. These organisms must exportExpand
Metabolism of Inorganic Sulfur Compounds in Purple Bacteria
This chapter focuses on dissimilatory and assimilatory metabolism of inorganic sulfur compounds by the bacteriochlorophyll-containing purple bacteria. Many anoxygenic phototrophic purple bacteria useExpand
Thiosulphate oxidation in the phototrophic sulphur bacterium Allochromatium vinosum
TLDR
Gene inactivation and complementation experiments proved these proteins to be indispensable for thiosulphate oxidation to sulphate, which appears to be related to the lack of soxCD genes, the products of which are proposed to oxidize SoxY‐bound sulphane sulphur. Expand
Genomes of ubiquitous marine and hypersaline Hydrogenovibrio, Thiomicrorhabdus and Thiomicrospira spp. encode a diversity of mechanisms to sustain chemolithoautotrophy in heterogeneous environments
TLDR
Their genome sequences confirm their membership in a deeply branching clade of the Gammaproteobacteria, and several adaptations to heterogeneous habitats are apparent, including adaptations to habitat variability. Expand
Sulfur Metabolism in Phototrophic Bacteria
Sulfur is one of the most versatile elements in life due to its reactivity in different oxidation and reduction states. In contrast to the assimilatory provision of sulfur-containing cellExpand
