Clostridium geopurificans strain MJ1 sp. nov., a strictly anaerobic bacterium that grows via fermentation and reduces the cyclic nitramine explosive hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX).

However, MJ1(T) transformed RDX into MNX, methylenedinitramine, formaldehyde, formate, ammonium, nitrous oxide, and nitrate.
Ancient origin of somatic and visceral neurons.

Moreover, in the cephalopod Sepia officinalis, we show that Phox2 marks the stellate ganglion (in line with the respiratory--that is, visceral--ancestral role of the mantle, its target organ), while the anterior pedal ganglion, which controls the prehensile and locomotory arms, expresses Mnx.
The molecular genetics of keratin disorders.
Dundee, United Kingdom. In Am J Clin Dermatol, 2002
These include ichthyosis bullosa of Siemens (K2e), epidermolytic palmoplantar keratoderma (K1, K9), pachyonychia congenita (K6a, K6b, K16, K17), white sponge nevus (K4, K13), Meesmann's corneal dystrophy (K3, K12), cryptogenic cirrhosis (K8, K18) and monilethrix (hHb6, hHb1).In general, these disorders are inherited as autosomal dominant traits and the mutations act in a dominant-negative manner.
Mutations in the hair cortex keratin hHb6 cause the inherited hair disease monilethrix.
Heidelberg, Germany. In Nat Genet, 1997
All affected individuals from a four-generation British family with monilethrix, previously linked to the type-II keratin gene cluster, as well as three unrelated single monilethrix patients, exhibited a heterozygous point mutation in the gene for type-II hair cortex keratin hHb6, leading to lysine substitution of a highly conserved glutamic acid residue in the helix termination motif (Glu 410 Lys).
