- ... Methylocella silvestris, an alphaproteobacterium isolated from a forest soil, can grow on trimethylamine N‐oxide (TMAO) as a sole nitrogen source; however, the molecular and biochemical mechanisms underpinning its growth remain unknown. Marker‐exchange mutagenesis enabled the identification of several genes involved in TMAO metabolism, including Msil_3606, a permease of the amino acids‐polyamine ( ...
