The contribution of genome mining strategies to the understanding of active principles of PGPR strains
This minireview identifies what can be achieved and the advantages of a genome analysis of a plant beneficial strain.
Qualitative and quantitative measures are important when designating microbial life strategies at finer phylogenetic resolution over time.
Long-term effects of aided phytostabilisation on microbial communities of metal-contaminated mine soil
Long-term monitoring of in situ aided phytostabilisation at a metal-contaminated mine soil revealed variable effects in terms of microbial activity, biomass and diversity.
An improved protocol with a highly degenerate primer targeting copper-containing membrane-bound monooxygenase genes for community analysis of methane- and ammonia-oxidizing bacteria
A two-step PCR strategy with a highly degenerate primer was successfully applied to environmental samples for methane- and ammonia-oxidizing bacteria.
Rubyspira osteovora is an unusual snail found only at whalefalls in the deep-sea, with a gut microbiome dominated by bacteria not present in the surrounding environment.
Correlated to variation in pH, soil bacterial community composition relates more closely to local-scale variation in slope aspect than to differences in sample site elevation.
The epiphytic planctomycetal communities on three macroalgae are significantly host specific which may be determined by nutritional molecules provided by the alga.
Reconstructing metabolic pathways of a member of the genus Pelotomaculum suggesting its potential to oxidize benzene to carbon dioxide with direct reduction of sulfate
Pelotomaculum candidate BPL not only degraded benzene without molecular oxygen but also performed sulfate reduction, making it the first representative of the genus Pelotomaculum which grows by dissimilatory sulfate reduction.
Exploring the methanogen and bacterial communities of rumen environments: solid adherent, fluid and epimural
The experiment and results described in this manuscript were aimed at increasing the understanding of the interactions between the complex microbial ecosystems of different rumen environments.
Cytochrome c peroxidase (CcP) is a molecular determinant of the oxidative stress response in the extreme acidophilic Leptospirillum sp. CF-1
The authors provide evidence that in the extremophilic iron-oxidizing bacterium Leptospirillum sp. CF-1, the cytochrome c peroxidase (CcP) is a molecular determinant of the oxidative stress response and plays a role in the early steps of the sulphide-ore colonization process.
A subpopulation of sponge-associated Pseudovibrio spp. specifically inhibits potentially pathogenic Bacillus spp. and likely influence the composition of the sponge microbiome.
Assemblage composition of fungal wood-decay species has a major influence on how climate and wood quality modify decomposition
Idiosyncratic patterns in fungal decomposition related to environmental factors, and species richness effects in relation to ecosystem functioning predominate over the effect of climate change variables in coarse wood decomposition.
Occurrence of similar mycoviruses in pathogenic, saprotrophic and mycorrhizal fungi inhabiting the same forest stand
An extensive sampling strategy was used to investigate whether viruses infecting Heterobasidion root rot fungi cause a major infection pressure towards the indigenous fungal community of the boreal forest habitat.
Carbon catabolite repression and cell dispersal affect degradation of the xenobiotic compound 3,4-dichloroaniline in Comamonas testosteroni WDL7 biofilms
An auxiliary C-source not only represses pollutant degradation in Comamonas testosteroni WDL7-RFP biofilms, but also indirectly leads to cell dispersal due to exposure to the non-degraded pollutant.
Elevated temperature enhances short- to medium-chain acyl homoserine lactone production by black band disease-associated vibrios
Quorum-sensing molecule (AHL) production by bacterial isolates from black band disease of corals increases above the temperature threshold of disease occurrence on the reef.
