Role of Polyphosphates in Microbial Adaptation to Extreme Environments
(American Society for Microbiology, 2008-10)
Anthropomorphically, an extreme environment is one in which physical conditions are not conducive for human life. In this review, extreme environments are defined as habitats that experience steady or fluctuating exposure ...
Filamentous fungi from extreme environments as a promising source of novel bioactive secondary metabolites
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2015)
Natural product search is undergoing resurgence upon the discovery of a huge previously unknown potential for secondary metabolite (SM) production hidden in microbial genomes. This is also the case for filamentous fungi, ...
The first complete sequence of a giant linear plasmid from a micrococcus strain isolated from an extremely high-altitute lake
(American Society for Microbiology, 2013-11)
Micrococcus sp. V7, an actinobacterial strain adapted to the extreme conditions of the Laguna Vilama, an extremely high-altitude (4,600mabove sea level) lake in the Argentinian Puna, was found to carry the giant linear ...
Data stream classification guided by clustering on nonstationary environments and extreme verification latency
(SIAM Activity Group on Data Mining and AnalyticsAmerican Statistical Association - ASAVancouver, 2015-04)
Data stream classification algorithms for nonstationary environments frequently assume the availability of class labels, instantly or with some lag after the classification. However, certain applications, mainly those ...
Occurrence of Resistance to Antibiotics, UV-B, and Arsenic in Bacteria Isolated from Extreme Environments in High-Altitude (Above 4400 m) Andean Wetlands
High-altitude Andean wetlands are pristine environments with extreme conditions such as high UV radiation, high heavy metal content (mainly arsenic), high salinity, and oligotrophy. In this paper, the UV-B resistance and ...
Microbiomes in extremely acidic environments: functionalities and interactions that allow survival and growth of prokaryotes at low pH
Extremely acidic environments have global distribution and can have natural or, increasingly, anthropogenic origins. Extreme acidophiles grow optimally at pH 3 or less, have multiple strategies for tolerating stresses that ...
