Combined Effects of Carbon and Nitrogen Source to Optimize Growth of Proteobacterial Methanotrophs
The results suggest that methanotroph strains must be carefully evaluated before use in industry, both to identify optimal conditions and to ensure the strain selected is appropriate for the process of interest.
Methane-Oxidizing Bacteria Shunt Carbon to Microbial Mats at a Marine Hydrocarbon Seep
This study identifies the taxa contributing to the flow of seep-derived carbon through microbial mat biomass, revealing the bacterial and eukaryotic diversity of these remarkable ecosystems.
A new cell morphotype among methane oxidizers: a spiral-shaped obligately microaerophilic methanotroph from northern low-oxygen environments
It is shown that spiral-shaped methanotrophic bacteria do exist in nature but elude isolation by conventional approaches due to the preference for growth under micro-oxic conditions, and the helical cell shape may enable rapid motility of these bacteria in water-saturated, heterogeneous environments with high microbial biofilm content, therefore offering an advantage of fast cell positioning under desired high methane/low oxygen conditions.
Customized media based on miniaturized screening improve growth rate and cell yield of methane-oxidizing bacteria of the genus Methylomonas
It is demonstrated that the presented miniaturized approach for medium optimization is a simple tool allowing the quick generation of strain-specific growth preference data that can be applied downstream of an isolation campaign.
Microbial oxidation of CH(4) at different temperatures in landfill cover soils.
Biological Conversion Process of Methane into Methanol Using Mixed Culture Methanotrophic Bacteria Enriched from Activated Sludge System
This dissertation aims to provide a history of quantitative analysis of the determinants of infectious disease in the United States from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases in the literature and science.
Microbial and Isotopic Evidence for Methane Cycling in Hydrocarbon-Containing Groundwater from the Pennsylvania Region
Methane isotope analysis and analysis of low molecular weight hydrocarbon gases from 18 water wells indicated that active methane cycling may be occurring in methane-containing groundwater from the Pennsylvania region, and methane cycling likely represents an important process in these hydrocarbon-containing aquifers.


Methane oxidation activity in various soils and freshwater sediments: Occurrence, characteristics, vertical profiles, and distribution on grain size fractions
CH 4 oxidation activities from various soils and freshwater sediments were measured at low (≤2 parts per million by volume (ppmv)) and high (≥1000 ppmv) CH 4 mixing ratios. Most of the tested soils
Detection of a microbial consortium, including type II methanotrophs, by use of phospholipid fatty acids in an aerobic halogenated hydrocarbon-degrading soil column enriched with natural gas
The phospholipid ester-linked normal and lipopolysaccharide layer hydroxy fatty acids from microbes in a natural gas (85% methane)-stimulated soil column capable of degrading halogenated hydrocarbons
The response of methane consumption by pure cultures of methanotrophic bacteria to oxygen
The rates of CH4 oxidation by strains of groups I and II methanotrophs in pure culture were studied at various O2 concentrations from 0 to 63 % v/v. In the presence of nonlimiting dissolved CH4 and
Unsubstituted and Hydroxy Substituted Fatty Acids in a Recent Lacustrine Sediment: (Lake Léman, Geneva, Switzerland)
Abstract Unsubstituted as well as α-, β- and (ω-1)-hydroxy substituted fatty acids were analyzed in a 5 m long sediment core taken from Lake Leman (Switzerland). All these acids occur in three forms:
Biodehalogenation: Oxidative and Hydrolytic Pathways in the Transformations of Acetonitrile, Chloroacetonitrile, Chloroacetic Acid, and Chloroacetamide by Methylosinus trichosporium OB-3b
Resting cell suspensions of the soil methylotroph Methylosinus trichosporium OB-3b rapidly metabolize acetonitrile (ACN) and chloroacetonitrile (CCN) to bicarbonate. Formate, a natural substrate for
