High impact information on Methanobrevibacter


Associations of Methanobrevibacter with chemical compounds

  • Evidence for a nickel-containing carbon monoxide dehydrogenase in Methanobrevibacter arboriphilicus [6].
  • This was supported by the structural elucidation of the methanofuran isolated from Methanobrevibacter smithii, designated methanofuran-c, which was the same as the originally characterized methanofuran except for a hydroxy group at the 2 position of the 4,5-dicarboxyoctanedioic acid moiety of the molecule [7].
  • To test this hypothesis Methanobrevibacter ruminantium, which requires coenzyme M as a vitamin, was grown in the presence of [2-14C]CoMSH [8].
  • F420H2 oxidase (FprA) from Methanobrevibacter arboriphilus, a coenzyme F420-dependent enzyme involved in O2 detoxification [9].
  • Approximately 4 nmol of lovastatin per milliliter resulted in 50% growth inhibition of Methanobrevibacter strain ZA10 and concentrations > or =10 nmol per milliliter completely inhibited growth and CH4 formation [10].
