Disease relevance of Magnetospirillum


High impact information on Magnetospirillum


Chemical compound and disease context of Magnetospirillum

  • Ferric iron reductase was purified from magnetotactic bacterium Magnetospirillum (formerly Aquaspirillum) magnetotacticum (ATCC 31632) to an electrophoretically homogeneous state [6].
  • Cells of Geobacter metallireducens, Magnetospirillum strain AMB-1, Magnetospirillum magnetotacticum and Magnetospirillum gryphiswaldense showed N2-dependent growth, the first anaerobically with Fe(III) as the electron acceptor, and the latter three species microaerobically in semi-solid oxygen gradient cultures [1].
  • Nitrite reductase from the magnetotactic bacterium Magnetospirillum magnetotacticum. A novel cytochrome cd1 with Fe(II):nitrite oxidoreductase activity [7].
  • Benzoate-CoA ligase (EC, the initial enzyme of anaerobic benzoate degradation, was purified and characterized from Magnetospirillum sp. strain TS-6 grown under both anaerobic and aerobic conditions [8].
  • We purified the nitrate reductase from the soluble fraction of Magnetospirillum magnetotacticum MS-1 [9].
