Rapid shift in microbial community structure in a neutral hydrothermal hot spring from Costa Rica
In this work, we characterize the geochemistry and microbial community of Bajo las Peñas, a neutral (pH 6.5-7.4), hot spring (T = 62.0-68.0°C) located near Turrialba Volcano, Costa Rica. The microbiota at its two sources ...
Bocaparvovirus, Erythroparvovirus and Tetraparvovirus in New World Primates from Central America
Parvoviruses in the genera Bocaparvovirus (HBoV), Erythroparvovirus (B19) and Tetraparvovirus (PARV4) are the only autonomous parvoviruses known to be associated with human and non‐human primates based on studies and ...
ArsH protects Pseudomonas putida from oxidative damage caused by exposure to arsenic
The two As resistance arsRBC operons of Pseudomonas putida KT2440 are followed by a downstream gene called arsH that encodes an NADPH‐dependent flavin mononucleotide reductase. In this work, we show that the arsH1 and (to ...
Microbial Community Structure Alogn a Horizontal Oxygen Gradient in a Costa Rican Volcanic Influeced Acid Rock Drainage System
We describe the geochemistry and microbial diversity of a pristine environment that resembles an acid rock drainage (ARD) but it is actually the result of hydrothermal and volcanic influences. We designate this environment, ...
The putative phosphate transporter PitB (PP1373) is involved in tellurite uptake in Pseudomonas putida KT2440
Tellurium oxyanions are chemical species of great toxicity and their presence in the environment has increased because of mining industries and photovoltaic and electronic waste. Recovery strategies for this metalloid that ...
Concomitant prediction of environmental fate and toxicity of chemical compounds
The environmental fate of many functional molecules that are produced on a large scale as precursors or as additives to specialty goods (plastics, fibers, construction materials, etc.), let alone those synthesized by the ...
