    ..Our filtration-cultivation procedure, combined with long incubations, enriched for novel ultrasmall-cell isolates, which is useful for studies of their metabolic properties and mechanisms for long-term survival under extreme conditions. ..
  2. Yakhnin A, Babitzke P. Mechanism of NusG-stimulated pausing, hairpin-dependent pause site selection and intrinsic termination at overlapping pause and termination sites in the Bacillus subtilis trp leader. Mol Microbiol. 2010;76:690-705 pubmed publisher
    ..NusA was found to increase both pausing and termination by reducing the rate of transcription. We also found that NusG-stimulated pausing is sequence specific and that NusG does not affect termination. ..

    ..Power generation by the facultative C. denitrificans depends on oxygen and MFC configuration, suggesting that a switch of metabolic pathway occurs for extracellular electron transfer by this denitrifying bacterium...

    ..The purified CdhE protein exhibited an Fe-S center and base-off cobalamin binding in which the benzimidazole base nitrogen atom was no longer a lower axial ligand to the cobalt atom...
  6. Maupin Furlow J, Ferry J. Analysis of the CO dehydrogenase/acetyl-coenzyme A synthase operon of Methanosarcina thermophila. J Bacteriol. 1996;178:6849-56 pubmed
    ..thermophila. The deduced protein sequence of ORF1, located between the cdhC and cdhD genes, has 29% identity to NifH2 from Methanobacterium ivanovii...
  7. Hong S, Tran Q, Keiler K. Cell cycle-regulated degradation of tmRNA is controlled by RNase R and SmpB. Mol Microbiol. 2005;57:565-75 pubmed publisher
    ..This model explains the regulation of SsrA RNA in other bacteria, and suggests that a highly conserved regulatory mechanism controls SsrA activity...
  8. Dubey A, Baker C, Romeo T, Babitzke P. RNA sequence and secondary structure participate in high-affinity CsrA-RNA interaction. RNA. 2005;11:1579-87 pubmed
    ..A mutational analysis of one selected ligand confirmed that the conserved ACA, GGA, and GU residues were critical for CsrA binding and that RNA secondary structure participates in CsrA-RNA recognition. ..
  9. Hong S, Lessner F, Mahen E, Keiler K. Proteomic identification of tmRNA substrates. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2007;104:17128-33 pubmed
    ..Analysis of the tagging sites within these substrates revealed a conserved nucleotide motif 5' of the tagging site, which is required for wild-type tmRNA tagging...

    ..These results suggest a model in which tmRNA-SmpB is localized to sequester tmRNA from RNase R, and localization might also regulate tmRNA-SmpB interactions with ribosomes...
