    Significance and Impact of the Study: Little is known about the microbial community associated with carbon monoxide (CO) in the deep subseafloor. This study is the first survey of a functional gene encoding anaerobic carbon monoxide dehydrogenase (CODH). The widespread occurrence of previously undiscovered CO dehydrogenase genes (cooS) suggests that diverse micro-organisms are capable of anaerobic oxidation of CO in the deep subseafloor sedimentary biosphere.

  3. Chemical composition and antifungal activity of Carica papaya Linn. seed essential oil against Candida spp.

    X. He, Y. Ma, G. Yi, J. Wu, L. Zhou and H. Guo

    Version of Record online: 19 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1111/lam.12711

    Significance and Impact of the Study: The chemical composition and antifungal activity of essential oil of Carica papaya seeds were studied. The oil of papaya seeds could inhibit the growth of Candida spp. for the first report. Carica Papaya may be recognized as a possible new source of natural antifungal agents.
