How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
A Gram-positive, aerobic, non-motile, non-endospore-forming rod with ibuprofen degrading capacity, designated I11T, was isolated from activated sludge from a wastewater treatment plant. The major respiratory quinone was demethylmenaquinone DMK-7, C18:1 CIS 9 was the predominant fatty acid, phosphatidylglycerol was the predominant polar lipid, the c...
Ibuprofen is the third most consumed pharmaceutical drug in the world. Several isolates have been shown to degrade ibuprofen, but very little is known about the biochemistry of this process. This study investigates the degradation of ibuprofen by Patulibacter sp. strain I11 by quantitative proteomics using a metabolic labelling strategy. The whole-...
The use of mixed microbial cultures enriched for biological mercury removal is explored in this paper, focusing on the ecological shifts occurring throughout acclimatization to mercury and on the long-term stability of four microbial enrichments. The 16S rRNA genetic profiles obtained by denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) revealed that...
