Methanospirillum, a New Genus of Methanogenic Bacteria, and Characterization of Methanospirillum hungatii sp.nov.
A new genus of methanogenic bacteria is described. The colonies produced by these bacteria are yellow, circular, and convex with lobate margins; an optical pattern of regular, light and darkExpand
Characterization of a strain of Methanospirillum hungatti.
The results of morphological, base ratio, nutritional, temperature, and pH studies on a strain of Methanospirillum hungatii, isolated from an anaerobic pear waste digester, are described. TheExpand
Specificity and biological distribution of coenzyme M (2-mercaptoethanesulfonic acid)
TLDR
A variety of derivatives, analogs, and potential biosynthetic precursors of coenzyme M were tested; only a restricted range of thioether, thioester, and thiocarbonate derivatives of the cofactor were found to replace the HS--CoM requirement. Expand
Acetate assimilation pathway of Methanosarcina barkeri
The pathway of acetate assimilation in Methanosarcina barkeri was determined from analysis of the position of label in alanine, aspartate, and glutamate formed in cells grown in the presence ofExpand
Transport of coenzyme M (2-mercaptoethanesulfonic acid) in Methanobacterium ruminantium
TLDR
Results of inhibitor studies with derivatives and analogs of the coenzyme showed that the specificity of the carrier is restricted to a limited range of thioether, thioester, and thiocarbonate derivatives. Expand
Nutritional and biochemical characterization of Methanospirillum hungatii
TLDR
The physiological basis of the family Methanobacteriaceae is strengthened by these findings. Expand

TLDR
This chapter discusses the microbial formation of methane, a unique biological event, which is confined to a small group of bacteria, and the biochemistry of methane formation. Expand
Origins of prokaryotes, eukaryotes, mitochondria, and chloroplasts.
TLDR
The symbiotic theory of cellular evolution is considered the most probable because it holds that organelles, e.g., mitochondria and chloroplasts invaded larger bodies, and combined functions to form eucaryotic cells. Expand

TLDR
The sequences of oligonucleotides released by T1 ribonuclease digestion of 32-P-labeled 16S and 18S ribosomal RNAs from a marine species of Porphyridium have been determined, providing a measure of the evolutionary distance separating existing chloroplasts from contemporary bacteria and blue-green algae.
