Cristobal A Onetto, Kathryn L Eales, Paul R Grbin
An industrial wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in Australia has long suffered from bulking problems associated with the proliferation of Thiothrix spp. The WWTP consists of a covered anaerobic lagoon (CAL) followed by a sequencing batch reactor (SBR). The CAL functions as both an anaerobic digester and surge lagoon for the irregular flow of wastewater generated from the production of seasonal products. Chemical analysis of the raw influent showed it was composed of a mixture of organic acids, phenols and alcohols...

Tungsten (W) has industrial and economic importance, and is in the European Union list of metals with a high supply risk. It is used by living organisms, which transport it into the cell, in the form of tungstate ion (WO4(2-)), using three different ABC-type transporters from the specific W-uptake system coded by tupABC gene cluster. In this study, strains from a collection recovered from deep-sea hydrothermal sediments were selected according to their ability to tolerate metals and to possess the tup genetic determinants...

A moderately thermophilic, strictly anaerobic, chemoautotrophic bacterium, designated strain HS1857(T), was isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent at the Noho site in the Mid-Okinawa Trough. Strain HS1857(T) grew between 35 and 63°C (optimum 55°C), in the presence of 10-55gl(-1) NaCl (optimum 25gl(-1)), and pH 5.5-7.1 (optimum 6.4). Growth occurred with molecular hydrogen as the electron donor and elemental sulfur, nitrate, or selenate as the electron acceptors. Formate could serve as an alternative electron donor with nitrate as an electron acceptor...

Stanislava Králová
Cold-loving microorganisms developed numerous adaptation mechanisms allowing them to survive in extremely cold habitats, such as adaptation of the cell membrane. The focus of this study was on the membrane fatty acids of Antarctic Flavobacterium spp., and their adaptation response to cold-stress. Fatty acids and cold-response of Antarctic flavobacteria was also compared to mesophilic and thermophilic members of the genus Flavobacterium. The results showed that the psychrophiles produced more types of major fatty acids than meso- and thermophilic members of this genus, namely C15:1 iso G, C15:0 iso, C15:0 anteiso, C15:1ω6c, C15:0 iso 3OH, C17:1ω6c, C16:0 iso 3OH and C17:0 iso 3OH, summed features 3 (C16:1ω7cand/or C16:1ω6c) and 9 (C16:0 10-methyl and/or C17:1 iso ω9c)...

This study investigated the culturable aerobic phototrophic bacteria present in soil samples collected in the proximity of the Belgian Princess Elisabeth Station in the Sør Rondane Mountains, East Antarctica. Until recently, only oxygenic phototrophic bacteria (Cyanobacteria) were well known from Antarctic soils. However, more recent non-cultivation-based studies have demonstrated the presence of anoxygenic phototrophs and, particularly, aerobic anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria in these areas. Approximately 1000 isolates obtained after prolonged incubation under different growth conditions were studied and characterized by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry...

Macroalgae harbour specific microbial communities on their surface that have functions related to host health and defence. In this study, the bacterial biofilm of the marine brown alga Fucus spiralis was investigated using 16S rRNA gene amplicon-based analysis and isolation of bacteria. Rhodobacteraceae (Alphaproteobacteria) were the predominant family constituting 23% of the epibacterial community. At the genus level, Sulfitobacter, Loktanella, Octadecabacter and a previously undescribed cluster were most abundant, and together they comprised 89% of the Rhodobacteraceae...

Six bacterial strains were isolated from the oak-Scleroderma citrinum ectomycorrhizosphere in acidic and nutrient-poor forest soil for their high efficacy to weather minerals. Four of the six isolates, PML1(12)(T) and PML1(4), PML1(14) and PML1(16), were further characterized extensively. They were Gram negative, obligate aerobic, motile, non spore forming and rod-shaped. The major fatty acids of strain PML1(12)(T) were cyclo-C17:0, cyclo-C19:0-ω8c, C16:0 and C18:1-ω7c. The GC content of the DNA was 60.8%...

The ability of four different bacteria to synthesize new ATP upon exposure to different doses of pulsed-light (PL) irradiation was investigated. The bacterial cells were PL treated on a gel surface, resuspended in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) and subsequently incubated in Tryptic Soy Broth (TSB) at 37°C. Cellular ATP levels were monitored during a 2h incubation period and compared to the respective colony count data. Although PL affected ATP production in a dose dependent manner, the results showed that bacteria, which had rendered unculturable after PL exposure, are still capable of generating significant quantities of ATP...

Two phylogenetically distinct Vibrionaceae strains C4II189(T) and C4V358(T) isolated from reef seawater off Ishigaki Island, Japan, in 2014 were studied with advanced genome-based taxonomy approaches. All aspects of phylogenetic (16S rRNA phylogeny, MLSA), phenotypic and genetic (ANI, DDH, AAI, and the number of core genes) cohesions between the two identified species were high enough to propose them as members of a new genus within the family Vibrionaceae. Consequently, an eighth genus Thaumasiovibrio gen...

Desmodium spp. are leguminous plants belonging to the tribe Desmodieae of the subfamily Papilionoideae. They are widely distributed in temperated and subtropical regions and are used as forage plants, for biological control, and in traditional folk medicine. The genus includes pioneer species that resist the xerothermic environment and grow in arid, barren sites. Desmodium species that form nitrogen-fixing symbiosis with rhizobia play an important role in sustainable agriculture. In Argentina, 23 native species of this genus have been found, including Desmodium incanum...

Chitin is the second most abundant polymer on Earth, playing a crucial role in the biogeochemical cycles. A core issue for studying its processing in aquatic systems is the identification and enumeration of chitin-containing particles and organisms, ideally in a manner that can be directly linked to bulk chitin quantification. The aim of this study was the development of such a technique. We successfully combined the methodology of bulk chitin determination using wheat germ agglutinin (FITC-WGA) for staining chitin-containing particles and organisms along with CARD-FISH staining of either chitin-containing eukaryotic cells or bacteria associated with them...

Sugarcane processing generates a large quantity of residues, such as filter cake and ashes, which are sometimes composted prior to their amendment in soil. However, important issues still have to be addressed on this subject, such as the description of bacterial succession that occurs throughout the composting process and the possibilities of using phosphate-solubilizing bacteria (PSB) during the process to improve phosphorus (P) availability in the compost end product. Consequently, this study evaluated the bacterial diversity and P dynamics during the composting process when inoculated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa PSBR12 and Bacillus sp...

A magnetotactic bacterium, designated strain BW-1(T), was isolated from a brackish spring in Death Valley National Park (California, USA) and cultivated in axenic culture. The Gram-negative cells of strain BW-1(T) are relatively large and rod-shaped and possess a single polar flagellum (monotrichous). This strain is the first magnetotactic bacterium isolated in axenic culture capable of producing greigite and/or magnetite nanocrystals aligned in one or more chains per cell. Strain BW-1(T) is an obligate anaerobe that grows chemoorganoheterotrophically while reducing sulfate as a terminal electron acceptor...
