    1. Subcellular localization of an ATPase in anammox bacteria using proteomics and immunogold electron microscopy (pages 10–18)

      Roger Karlsson, Anders Karlsson, Ola Bäckman, Bengt R. Johansson and Stefan Hulth

      Article first published online: 7 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6968.12425

      A lipid-based protein immobilization technique was used to identify proteins essential for the anammox reaction in anammox bacteria, and the results were used to select linear epitopes for antibodies specifically targeted against an identified ATPase.

    2. Antibacterial enzymes from the functional screening of metagenomic libraries hosted in Ralstonia metallidurans (pages 19–26)

      Hala A. Iqbal, Jeffrey W. Craig and Sean F. Brady

      Article first published online: 10 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6968.12431

      Antibacterial proteases, lipases, and cell wall lytic enzymes were found in a functional screen of a soil metagenomic library hosted in Ralstonia metallidurans.

    3. Cold shock protein A plays an important role in the stress adaptation and virulence of Brucella melitensis (pages 27–36)

      Zhen Wang, Shuangshan Wang and Qingmin Wu

      Article first published online: 11 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6968.12430

      Our results suggest that the Brucella cspA gene makes an essential contribution to virulence in vitro and in vivo, most likely by allowing brucellae to adapt appropriately to the harsh environmental conditions encountered within host macrophages.

    4. Interactions of three soil bacteria species with phyllosilicate surfaces in hybrid silica gels (pages 37–45)

      Djihad Oulkadi, Clarisse Balland-Bolou-Bi, Patrick Billard, Geraldine Kitzinger, Damien Parrello, Christian Mustin and Sylvie Banon

      Article first published online: 2 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6968.12421

      Hybrid silica gel doped with two phyllosilicates was used as a novel way of separating bacteria cells from a colloidal mineral source in order to study clay dissolution.

    5. Capsule loss or death: The position of mutations among capsule genes sways the destiny of Streptococcus suis (pages 46–54)

      Nattakan Lakkitjaroen, Daisuke Takamatsu, Masatoshi Okura, Masumi Sato, Makoto Osaki and Tsutomu Sekizaki

      Article first published online: 3 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6968.12428

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Mutations in the capsule genes of Streptococcus suis may result in either the loss of the capsule or death, depending on the position of the mutations.

    6. A PCR-based assay for the detection of anaerobic naphthalene degradation (pages 55–59)

      Brandon E.L. Morris, Alexander Gissibl, Steffen Kümmel, Hans-Hermann Richnow and Matthias Boll

      Article first published online: 3 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6968.12429

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A PCR-based assay targeting a key enzyme of anaerobic naphthalene degradation has been developed.

    7. Analysis of a Lys-specific serine endopeptidase secreted via the type IX secretion system in Porphyromonas gingivalis (pages 60–68)

      Minako Nonaka, Mikio Shoji, Tomoko Kadowaki, Keiko Sato, Hideharu Yukitake, Mariko Naito and Koji Nakayama

      Article first published online: 10 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6968.12426

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A Lys-specific serine endopeptidase was found that is secreted via a novel secretion system, the type IX secretion system and is activated by Arg-gingipain protease. Bars: 1, KDP129 (kgp); 2, KDP601 (kgp pepK); 3, KDP981 (kgp rgpA rgpB); 4, co-culture of KDP601 and KDP981.

    8. Isolation and characterization of an obligately chemolithoautotrophic Halothiobacillus strain capable of growth on thiocyanate as an energy source (pages 69–74)

      Dimitry Y. Sorokin, Ben Abbas, Erik van Zessen and Gerard Muyzer

      Article first published online: 11 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6968.12432
