    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract The microorganisms involved in sulfate-dependent anaerobic oxidation of methane (AOM) have not yet been isolated. In an attempt to stimulate the growth of anaerobic methanotrophs and associated sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB), Eckernförde Bay sediment was incubated with different combinations of electron donors and acceptors. The organisms involved in AOM coupled to sulfate reduction (ANME-1, ANME-2, and Desulfosarcina/Desulfococcus) were monitored using specific primers and probes. With thiosulfate as sole electron acceptor and acetate, pyruvate or butyrate as the sole electron donor, ANME-1 became the dominant archaeal species. This finding suggests that ANME-1 archaea are not obligate methanotrophs and that ANME-1 can grow on acetate, pyruvate or butyrate
