Strategy for in situ detection of natural transformation-based horizontal gene transfer events
(American Society for Microbiology, 2008)
A strategy is described that enables the in situ detection of natural transformation in Acinetobacter baylyi BD413 by the expression of a green fluorescent protein. Microscale detection of bacterial transformants growing ...
Effects of rhizodeposition of non-transgenic and transplastomic tobaccos on the soil bacterial community
(EDP Sciences, 2008)
The effect of root-released compounds of transplastomic tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) on the soil bacterial community structure, and their potential to support horizontal gene transfer (HGT) to bacteria have been studied. ...
Microbial succession in a compost-packed biofilter treating benzene-contaminated air
(Springer Verlag (Germany), 2006)
Air artificially contaminated with increasing concentrations of benzene was treated in a laboratory scale compost-packed biofilter for 240 days with a removal efficiency of 81-100%. The bacterial community in the packing ...
Comparison of different primer sets for the Automated Ribosomal Intergenic Spacer Analysis (ARISA) of complex Eubacterial communities
(American Society for Microbiology, 2004)
Response of bacterial community during bioremediation of an oil-polluted soil
Bacterial communities associated with the rhizosphere of transgenic Bt 176 maize (Zea mays) and its non transgenic counterpart
The effect of transgenic Bt 176 maize on the rhizosphere bacterial community has been studied with a polyphasic approach by comparing the rhizosphere of Bt maize cultivated in greenhouse with that of its non transgenic ...
Biodiversity of Geodermatophilaceae isolated from altered stones and monuments in the Mediterranean basin
An investigation was made into the occurrence and biodiversity of Geodermatophilaceae on 78 samples of altered stone surfaces from 24 monuments and natural stones in the Mediterranean basin; it was found that the total ...
Detection of feed-derived Bt-maize DNA in goat milk and evaluation of possible horizontal gene transfer to bacteria
(Springer Verlag (Germany), 2008)
The presence and the transforming capacity of feed-derived DNA in milk obtained from eight lactating goats fed on maize E176 silage were evaluated. The presence of single- and multi-copy maize genes was monitored by real-time ...
