Characterization of Propionispira arboris gen. nov. sp. nov., a nitrogen-fixing anaerobe common to wetwoods of living trees


, : Characterization of Propionispira arboris gen. nov. sp. nov., a nitrogen-fixing anaerobe common to wetwoods of living trees. Journal of General Microbiology 128(11): 2771-2779

A new species in the family Bacteroidaceae is described, isolated from alkaline wetwoods of poplar trees. It was a Gram-negative, non-sporing, curved rod that formed long spiral filaments, especially when grown with N2 as the sole nitrogen source. This obligate anaerobe had peritrichous flagellation and an outer-wall membranous layer. The DNA G + C content was 36.7 plus or minus 1.0 mol %.

Seasonal variation patterns of N and P contents in leaves of nitrogen-fixing trees. The seasonal variation and export rate of N and P contents in leaves and the export course of N and P in decrepit leaves of 23 nitrogen-fixing and non-nitrogen-fixing tree species were studied. The results showed that in the leaves of all tested t...

A strictly anaerobic bacterial strain, WK011(T), was isolated from a methanogenic reactor treating waste from cattle farms. The cells stained Gram-negative and were curved rods with a polar or subpolar flagellum. Spore formation was not observed....
