Prosthecomicrobium litoralum, a New Species from Marine Habitats

Marine strains of multiply appendaged prosthecate bacteria have been isolated. All three strains included in this study have characteristics that are typical of the genus Prosthecomicrobium. The deoxyribonucleic acid base compositions of the strains tested range from 66 to 67 mol% guanine plus cytosine; these values are similar to the value reported for Prosthecomicrobium enhydrum. However, the new strains which we studied differ from Prosthecomicrobium enhydrum because of their marine origin…

Prosthecomicrobium hirschii, a New Species in a Redefined Genus
The generic description is modified to include a greater variety of prosthecal types and the budding form of division, which is a property of all previously described species and the new species of Prosthecomicrobium emend.
Vibrio agarivorans sp. nov., a novel agarolytic marine bacterium.
The cells were gram-negative, oxidase-positive, polarly flagellated bacilli that fermented glucose without gas production and that produced no decarboxylases, using a wide range of compounds as sole carbon and energy sources.
Reclassification of the polyphyletic genus Prosthecomicrobium to form two novel genera, Vasilyevaea gen. nov. and Bauldia gen. nov. with four new combinations: Vasilyevaea enhydra comb. nov., Vasilyevaea mishustinii comb. nov., Bauldia consociata comb. nov. and Bauldia litoralis comb. nov.
The analyses indicate that some Prosthecomicrobium species are more closely related to non-prosthecate genera, including Devosia, Labrenzia, Blastochloris, Methylosinus, Mesorhizobium and Kaistia, than they are to other species of the genus Prosthesia.
Ecology of Polyprosthecate Bacteria
This review briefly considers the biological characteristics of these bacteria and discusses in greater detail what is known about their ecological role(s).

Physiological bases of oligotrophy of microorganisms and the concept of microbial community
Three groups of physiological processes in microorganisms are considered the physiological basis of oligotrophy: the greater substrate affinity of the oligotrophs' transport systems, efficient or
Microbial Community Structure of Subalpine Snow in the Sierra Nevada, California
The results suggest that microbial communities of subalpine Sierra Nevada snowpack are diverse, with both snow depths harboring distinct but overlapping communities consisting largely of cold-adapted bacteria.

Prosthecomicrobium and Ancalomicrobium: New Prosthecate Freshwater Bacteria
The term prostheca is proposed for the rigid appendages of procaryotic cells bounded by the cell wall, and is defined to include the structures on these new bacteria, as well as the stalks of the caulobacters and thehyphae of the hyphomicrobia.
Deoxyribonucleic Acid Base Composition of Prosthecomicrobium and Ancalomicrobium Strains
The deoxyribonucleic acid base compositions of 14 newly isolated strains and the type strains of Prosthecomicrobium enhydrum, P. pneumaticum, and Ancalomicrobium adetum are reported. The guanine plus
The Genus Planctomyces
As the generic name Planctomyces implies, members of this microbial group occur in the plankton of aquatic habitats and have the fine structure typical of prokaryotes.
Arrangement of morphological subunits in bacterial spinae.
The filament, that is helically arranged to form the bacterial spina, is composed of morphological subunits (oligomers) about 5.6 nm in width and 11 nm in length. The oligomers are asymmetrical in
Spinin: the subunit protein of bacterial spinae.
Bacterial spines (spinae) dissociate in hot sodium dodecyl sulphate to give a single novel subunit protein, spinin, which is introduced as new names.
