  • A comparison to representatives of other genera of bacteria revealed that the high sensitivity to ..gamma.. radiation of bacteria of the genus Vibrio is unrelated to structural distinctions of the cell membrane demonstrable by Gram staining and, most probably, unrelated to the inability of vibrions to recover from radiation lesions in a non-nutrient medium. The predominant death of ..gamma..-damaged Vibrio bacteria on the level of individual cells, without attempts at division, could be tentatively attributed to irreversible lesions to structures involved in cell division.
  • The degradation of amino acids in anaerobic digestion was examined in terms of the interactions between amino-acid-degrading bacteria and methanogenic bacteria. Certain amino acids were degraded oxidatively by dehydrogenation, with methanogenic bacteria acting as H/sub 2/ acceptors. The inhibition of methanogenesis by chloroform also inhibited the degradation of these amino acids and/or caused variations in the composition of volatile acids produced from them. The presence of glycine reduced the inhibitory effect caused by chloroform, probably because glycine acted as an H/sub 2/ acceptor in place of methanogenic bacteria. This fact suggested that the coupled oxidation-reduction reactions between two amino acidsmore » - one acting as the H/sub 2/ donor and the other acting as the H/sub 2/ acceptor - may occur in the anaerobic digestion of proteins or amino-acid mixtures. The conversion of some proteins to volatile acids was not affected when methanogensis was inhibited by chloroform. This suggested that the component amino acids of proteins may be degraded by the coupled oxidation-reduction reactions and that the degradation of proteins may not be dependent on the activity of methanogenic bacteria as H/sub 2/ acceptors.« less
  • The utilization of deposits remaining after the purification of waste waters, containing heavy metal ions, requires the study of the conditions for the formation of different crystal structures of electroprecipitated hydroxides of bi- and tervalent iron. This work was carried out with the objective of determining the optimum conditions for electroprecipitation purification of waste waters, leading to a product with the highest ..cap alpha..-Fe/sub 2/O/sub 3/ content.
  • One of the simplest organisms to divide asymmetrically is the bacterium Caulobacter crescentus. The DivL pseudo-histidine kinase, positioned at one cell pole, regulates cell-fate by controlling the activation of the global transcription factor CtrA via an interaction with the response regulator (RR) DivK. DivL uniquely contains a tyrosine at the histidine phosphorylation site, and can achieve these regulatory functions in vivo without kinase activity. Determination of the DivL crystal structure and biochemical analysis of wild-type and site-specific DivL mutants revealed that the DivL PAS domains regulate binding specificity for DivK~P over DivK, which is modulated by an allosteric intramolecular interactionmore » between adjacent domains. We discovered that DivL's catalytic domains have been repurposed as a phosphospecific RR input sensor, thereby reversing the flow of information observed in conventional histidine kinase (HK)-RR systems and coupling a complex network of signaling proteins for cell-fate regulation.« less
