Isolation and characteristic of g. Hyphomicrobium bacteria from Lake Baikal
First representatives of facultative methylotrophic bacteria were isolated from Lake Baikal (genus Hyphomicrobium). G. Hyphomicrobium bacteria were detected in 33 % water samples took all over the basin of Lake Baikal. The abundance of hyphomicrobes was 3,5 × 102 cells per milliliter of water in region of Selenga river shoal though it was composed 0, 01 % from total number of microorganisms. The ability of Hy-X/1 strain to aerobic denitrification was detected.
