Vitamin B Power broker to the microbes -- ScienceDaily
Anti-PRMT1 antibody [MAT-B12] - ChIP Grade Review () | Abcam Constant jostling for precious b12 -- money, oil, high-speed Internet access, our morning coffee -- shapes the world we live in. It's no different for microbes, where scientists have found more evidence that vitamin B12, a substance produced by only a few organisms but needed by nearly all of them, wields great power in the microbial world. The findings lend credence to the idea that B12 helps shape mat communities -- ubiquitous structures that affect b12 and food production, the mat, human health, and many other processes. Scientists at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory report their findings about B12's clout this week in the online early edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Wright's team made the findings in a bacterium known as Halomonas sp.
