A bacterial strain, designated NS31-3(T), was isolated from the wastewater of a paper mill. Cells of the isolate were obligately anaerobic, non-pigmented, non-motile, Gram-negative, short rods (0.7-1.0 × 1.4-2.5 µm). The isolate was able to grow on media containing 20% bile salts. API 20A tests showed that acid was produced from glucose, lactose, sucrose, maltose, D-xylose, L-arabinose, cellobiose, D-mannose, D-melezitose, D-raffinose, D-trehalose, D-mannitol, salicin and D-sorbitol. The main…

Parabacteroides chinchillae sp. nov., isolated from chinchilla (Chincilla lanigera) faeces.
Strains of Gram-stain-negative, anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria were isolated from chinchilla (Chinchilla lanigera) faeces, and strain ST166(T) was investigated taxonomically. Phylogenetic analyses of
Ecogenomics-Based Mass Balance Model Reveals the Effects of Fermentation Conditions on Microbial Activity
Overall, the EGMB approach clearly revealed the ecological roles of important microbial guilds in the WAS fermentation system, and guided the selection of optimal conditions for WAS fermentation in future pilot-scale operation.
Effect of NaCl Concentration on Microbiological Properties in NaCl Assistant Anaerobic Fermentation: Hydrolase Activity and Microbial Community Distribution
It was found that α-glucosidase activity and some carbohydrate-degrading bacteria were inhibited in NaCl tests, owing to their vulnerability to high NaCl concentration, and the microbial community richness and diversity were reduced compared with the control test, while the evenness was not affected by NaCl concentrations.

Parabacteroides gordonii sp. nov., isolated from human blood cultures.
Three bacterial strains that had been isolated from human blood cultures, MS-1(T), MS-2 and MS-3, were characterized for their phenotypic and biochemical features, cellular fatty acid profiles,
Parabacteroides johnsonii sp. nov., isolated from human faeces.
A bacterial strain isolated from human faeces, M-165T, was characterized in terms of its phenotypic and biochemical features, cellular fatty acid profile, menaquinone profile and phylogenetic position, which showed that it was a member of the genus Parabacteroides.
Thermus arciformis sp. nov., a thermophilic species from a geothermal area.
Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences and levels of DNA-DNA relatedness together indicated that the new isolates represented a novel species of the genus Thermus with closest affinity to Thermus aquaticus, Thermus igniterrae and Thermus thermophilus.
Halomonas saccharevitans sp. nov., Halomonas arcis sp. nov. and Halomonas subterranea sp. nov., halophilic bacteria isolated from hypersaline environments of China.
Three strains of Gram-negative, aerobic, neutrophilic and halophilic bacteria were isolated from samples of a salt lake on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and a subterranean saline well in the Si-Chuan Basin of China and it is proposed that they represent the type strains of three novel species in the genus Halomonas.
“Bacteroides goldsteinii sp. nov.” Isolated from Clinical Specimens of Human Intestinal Origin
Phenotypic and phylogenetic studies on an unknown gram-negative, strictly anaerobic, rod-shaped bacterium isolated from human clinical specimens demonstrate that the unknown bacterium is genotypically and phenotypically distinct and represents a previously unknown subline within the Porphyromonas phylogenetic cluster.
Studies on dissimilatory sulfate-reducing bacteria that decompose fatty acids
Gliding motility, ultrastructure and nutrition of two newly isolated filamentous sulfate-reducing bacteria, strains 5ac10 and 4be13, were investigated; the capacity of complete oxidation was shown by stoichiometric measurements with acetate plus sulfate.
Bacteroides caccae sp. nov., Bacteroides merdae sp. nov., and Bacteroides stercoris sp. nov. Isolated from Human Feces
Three new saccharolytic Bacteroides species that have DNAs with guanine-plus-cytosine contents of 40 to 46 mol%, produce major amounts of succinate, and were isolated principally from human feces are
Genotypic Diversity of Anaerobic Isolates from Bloodstream Infections
Sequence-based identification has potential benefits in comparison to conventional methods, because it more accurately characterizes anaerobes within taxonomically related clusters and thereby may enable better correlation with specific clinical syndromes and antibiotic resistance patterns.
Fatty Acids, Antibiotic Resistance, and Deoxyribonucleic Acid Homology Groups of Bradyrhizobium japonicum
The fatty acid compositions and multiple antibiotic resistance patterns of 32 strains of Bradyrhizobium japonicum correlated with two major deoxyribonucleic acid homology groups, whereas group II strains were resistant to these antibiotics.
The Roll-Tube Method for Cultivation of Strict Anaerobes
Habitats devoid of oxygen include the interior of the alimentary tracts of most mammals, the lower portions of many oligotrophic lakes, the sediment underlying bodies of water, and water logged soils, which are chiefly responsible for the lack of O2.
