  • Images of cellular ultrastructure of benthic foraminifera from Arctic seeps 

    Bernhard, Joan M.; Le Roux, Véronique; Martin, Jonathan B. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2021-11-01)
    Dissociation of methane hydrates due to ocean warming releases methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, to the atmosphere. Dissociation of gas hydrates may have led to rapid and dramatic environmental changes in the past. Thus, ...
  • Ratio of electron donor to acceptor influences metabolic specialization and denitrification dynamics in Pseudomonas aeruginosa in a mixed carbon medium 

    Zhang, Irene H.; Mullen, Susan; Ciccarese, Davide; Dumit, Diana; Martocello, Donald E., III; Toyofuku, Masanori; Nomura, Nobuhiko; Smriga, Steven; Babbin, Andrew R. (Frontiers Media, 2021-09-10)
    Denitrifying microbes sequentially reduce nitrate (NO3–) to nitrite (NO2–), NO, N2O, and N2 through enzymes encoded by nar, nir, nor, and nos. Some denitrifiers maintain the whole four-gene pathway, but others possess ...
