Physiology and ultrastructure of Leptothrix discophora SS-1
TLDR
It is proposed that the outer membrane blebs represent vehicles for excretion of unorganized sheath material and/or Mn2+-oxidizing protein produced by L. discophora. Expand
Selective Growth Inhibition of Sphaerotilus natans and Beggiatoa sp. by Nucleosides
9-β-d-Arabinofuranosyladenine (ara-A) has been found to specifically inhibit the growth of Sphaerotilus natans and Beggiatoa sp. at a low concentration (0.78 μg/ml). The nucleoside had noExpand
Morphological and Biochemical Properties of aSphaerotilus sp. Isolated From Paper Mill Slimes
TLDR
Comparative sequence analysis of nearly complete 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) sequences from the four new isolates demonstrated that the retrieved sequences were highly similar to each other and to previously published partial 16S rDNA sequences of S. natans. Expand
Isolation and characterization of a bacteriophage specific for Sphaerotilus natans which contain an unusual base in its deoxyribonucleic acid
TLDR
A phage isolated specific for Sphaerotilus natans was found to infect both the single-cell and filamentous forms of the host, although the sheath appeared to provide R-type cells with a degree of physical protection from infection. Expand
Prevalence of Broad-Host-Range Lytic Bacteriophages of Sphaerotilus natans, Escherichia coli, andPseudomonas aeruginosa
TLDR
It is suggested that broad-host-range bacteriophages play a key role in phage ecology and gene transfer in nature and a multiple-host enrichment protocol may be more effective for the isolation of broad- host-range phages by avoiding the selection bias inherent in single-host methods. Expand
Ultrastructure of Thiothrix spp. and “Type 021N” Bacteria

  • 1987
The ultrastructural features of two groups of filamentous sulfur bacteria, Thiothrix spp. and an unnamed organism designated “type 021N,” were examined by transmission electron microscopy. NegativeExpand
Attached Growth of Sphaerotilus natans in Continuous-Flow Apparatus and Its Growth Inhibition by 9-β-d-Arabinofuranosyladenine
TLDR
The attached growth of S. natans in the continuous-flow apparatus was inhibited by the minimal inhibitory concentration of 0.5 to 1.0 mug of 9-beta-d-arabinofuranosyladenine per ml. Expand
Characterization, distribution, and significance ofMetallogenium in Lake Washington
TLDR
During summer stratification, Metallogenium personatun was found exclusively in the hypolimnion of Lake Washington where the oxygen tension was below 8 ppm, suggesting that the microcolonial structures seen in Lake Washington are not a living form of an organism. Expand
HETEROTROPHIC SLIMES IN FLOWING WATERS
TLDR
Slimes are predominantly of heterotrophs which require a constant supply of a suitable carbon source, inorganic nutrients and in particular nitrogen and phosphorous, and possibly growth factors such as vitamins. Expand
