Involvement Of Coenzyme M During Aerobic Biodegradation Of Vinyl Chloride And Ethene By Pseudomonas Putida Strain Aj And Ochrobactrum Sp. Strain Td†, Anthony S. Danko, Christopher Saski, Jeffrey P. Tomkins, David L. Freeman May 2006

Involvement Of Coenzyme M During Aerobic Biodegradation Of Vinyl Chloride And Ethene By Pseudomonas Putida Strain Aj And Ochrobactrum Sp. Strain Td†, Anthony S. Danko, Christopher Saski, Jeffrey P. Tomkins, David L. Freeman

Publications

The involvement of coenzyme M in aerobic biodegradation of vinyl chloride and ethene in Pseudomonas putida strain AJ and Ochrobactrum sp. strain TD was demonstrated using PCR, hybridization, and enzyme assays. The results of this study extend the range of eubacteria known to use epoxyalkane:coenzyme M transferase.


Phylogenetic Analyses Of Vitis (Vitaceae) Based On Complete Chloroplast Genome Sequences: Effects Of Taxon Sampling And Phylogenetic Methods On Resolving Relationships Among Rosids, Robert K. Jansen, Charalambos Kaittanis, Christopher Saski, Seung-Bum Lee, Jeffrey Tomkins, Andrew Alverson, Henry Daniell Apr 2006

The Vitaceae (grape) is an economically important family of angiosperms whose phylogenetic placement is currently unresolved. Recent phylogenetic analyses based on one to several genes have suggested several alternative placements of this family, including sister to Caryophyllales, asterids, Saxifragales, Dilleniaceae or to rest of rosids, though support for these different results has been weak. There has been a recent interest in using complete chloroplast genome sequences for resolving phylogenetic relationships among angiosperms. These studies have clarified relationships among several major lineages but they have also emphasized the importance of taxon sampling and the effects of different phylogenetic methods for obtaining ...
