Summary of "Peptostreptococcus russellii sp. nov., isolated from a swine-manure storage pit."

A polyphasic taxonomic study was performed on seven strains of an unknown Gram-positive, nonspore-forming, obligately anaerobic coccus-shaped bacterium isolated from a swine-manure storage pit. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing confirmed that all these isolates were highly related to each other and formed a hitherto unknown linage within the clostridial rRNA XI cluster of organisms. Pairwise analysis demonstrated that the novel organism to be most closely related to Peptostreptococcus anaerobius and Peptostreptococcus stomatis with 16S rDNA gene sequence similarity values of 95.5% and 93.0%, respectively. The peptidoglycan type of the cell wall was determined to be A4α L-Lys-D-Asp with glucose, xylose and traces of mannose as the cell wall sugars. Based on biochemical, chemotaxomonic, and phylogenetic evidence it is proposed that the unknown bacterium be classified as a new species, Peptostreptococcus russellii sp. nov. The type strain is RT-10BT (=CCUG 58235T = NRRL B-59380T= DSM 23041T).

Cattle Manure Enhances Methanogens Diversity and Methane Emissions Compared to Swine Manure under Rice Paddy.

Livestock manures are broadly used in agriculture to improve soil quality. However, manure application can increase the availability of organic carbon, thereby facilitating methane (CH4) production. C...

Potential bioactivity and association of 17β-estradiol with the dissolved and colloidal fractions of manure and soil.

The dissolved (DF) and colloidal fractions (CF) of soil and manure play an important role in the environmental fate and transport of steroidal estrogens. The first objective of this study was to quant...

An assessment of Salmonella survival in pig manure and its separated solid and liquid fractions during storage.

The objective of this study was to examine Salmonella survival in pig manure and its separated fractions during storage. Salmonella declined, but significant reductions were not observed in the manure...

Transport and Persistence of Tylosin-Resistant Enterococci, Genes, and Tylosin in Soil and Drainage Water from Fields Receiving Swine Manure.

Land application of manure from tylosin-treated swine introduces tylosin, tylosin-resistant enterococci, and erythromycin resistant rRNA methylase () genes, which confer resistance to tylosin. This st...

Recovery of ammonia from swine manure using gas-permeable membranes: Effect of aeration.

The gas-permeable membrane process can recover ammonia from manure, reducing pollution whilst converting ammonia into an ammonium salt fertilizer. The process involves manure pH control to increase am...
