Rapid Nitrate Reduction Assay with Intact Microbial Cells or Spores
Authors:  Marco Fischer, Dörte Falke and R. Gary Sawers, date: 06/20/2014, view: 3184, Q&A: 0
Many microorganisms have the capacity to use nitrate as a respiratory electron acceptor. Reduction of nitrate is catalyzed by a multi-subunit nitrate reductase that is often located associated with the cytoplasmic membrane and has its active site ...
Determination of Oxygen Respiration Rates in Wetted Developmentally Arrested Spores of Streptomyces Species
Authors:  Marco Fischer, Dörte Falke and R. Gary Sawers, date: 06/20/2014, view: 3263, Q&A: 0
Streptomyces species produce spores, which, while not as robust as endospores of Bacillus or Clostridium species, are capable of surviving for months or even years (Hopwood, 2006). During this time these spores remain ...
