Journal Article
Taylor, C. M., Goldrick, M., Lord, L., & Roberts, I. S. (2006). Mutations in the waaR Gene of Escherichia coli Which Disrupt Lipopolysaccharide Outer Core Biosynthesis Affect Cell Surface Retention of Group 2 Capsular Polysaccharides. Journal of Bacteriology, 188(3), 1165-1168. https://doi.org/10.1128/JB.188.3.1165-1168.2006

On the basis of increased resistance to K5 capsule-specific bacteriophage, a waaR transposon mutant defective in the biosynthesis of lipopolysaccharide outer core was isolated. In a K1-expressing strain the mutation equally affected sensitivity to K1...

Gordonia defluvii sp. nov., an actinomycete isolated from activated sludge foam. (2006)
Journal Article
Soddell, J. A., Stainsby, F. M., Eales, K. L., Seviour, R. J., & Goodfellow, M. (2006). Gordonia defluvii sp. nov., an actinomycete isolated from activated sludge foam. International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology, 56, 2265-2269. https://doi.org/10.1099/ijs.0.64034-0

Three strains of non-motile, Gram-positive, filamentous actinomycetes, isolates J4T, J5 and J59, initially recognized microscopically in activated sludge foam by their distinctive branching patterns, were isolated by micromanipulation. The taxonomic... Read More about Gordonia defluvii sp. nov., an actinomycete isolated from activated sludge foam..
