- Highly sensitive determination of ectoine and other compatible solutes by anion-exchange chromatography and pulsed amperometric detectionVolker Riis
Department of Environmental Microbiology, UFZ Centre for Environmental Research Leipzig Halle, Permoserstrasse 15, 04318 Leipzig, Germany
Anal Bioanal Chem 377:203-7. 2003..The first strain produced trehalose and glucosylglycerol, and the second ectoine, as the main osmotic counterweight. The relationship between the content of these osmolytes in the bacterial biomass and the external salinity is described...
- Influence of heavy metals on the microbial degradation of diesel fuelVolker Riis
Department of Environmental Microbiology, UFZ Centre for Environmental Research Leipzig Halle GmbH, Leipzig, Germany
Chemosphere 49:559-68. 2002..The paper also includes results on the availability of h.m. and changes to the community after exposure...
- Population dynamics within a microbial consortium during growth on diesel fuel in saline environmentsSabine Kleinsteuber
UFZ Centre for Environmental Research Leipzig Halle, Department of Environmental Microbiology, Permoserstrasse 15, 04318 Leipzig, Germany
Appl Environ Microbiol 72:3531-42. 2006..The combination of cytometric sorting with molecular characterization allowed us to monitor community adaptation and to identify active and proliferating subcommunities...
- Influence of high salinities on the degradation of diesel fuel by bacterial consortiaVolker Riis
UFZ Centre for Environmental Research Leipzig Halle, Department of Environmental Microbiology, Germany
Can J Microbiol 49:713-21. 2003..In light of our investigations, the bioremediation of contaminated saline soils should be quite possible if the salinity of the soil water is lower than 15% or if it is reduced below this limit by the addition of water...
