To date, most PHA-accumulating bacteria were found to be Gram-negative which includes, Acinetobacter, Alcaligenes, Aphanocapsa, Aquaspirillum, Azomonas, Azotobacter, Beijerinckia, Caulobacter, Chromobacterium, Escherichia, Haemophilus, Moraxella, Nitrobacter, Photobacterium, Pseudomonas, Rhizobium, Rhodobacter, Vibrio, etc.
The strains 06 and 12 (assigned to the genera Caulobacter and Rhizobium) might also have appeared during the whole experiment, as bands of the same height were observed in all samplings, but were not sequenced for further confirmation.
Crystal structures of Caulobacter crescentus Lpxl and LpxI-D225 A bound, respectively, to 2,3-bis(3R-hydroxymyristoyl)-glucosaminyl-1-phosphate (lipid X) and UDP-DAG revealed that Lpxl has a novel two-domain fold wherein the N-terminal domain forms the binding pocket for the majority of the lipid substrate and the C-terminal domain forms the pyrophosphatase active site [55].

The researchers tested the memory of Caulobacter crescentus cells, a bacteria which is present in fresh water lakes and streams.
In several organisms and plasmids depolymerization of polymeric partition proteins (e.g., parA of Caulobacter crescentus ) that are attached to centromeric sites near oriC provides the force to pull the origin regions of the daughter chromosomes away from midcell toward the poles.
To understand the mechanisms of dynamic biological processes, DNA microarray experiments have been employed to produce gene expression profiles at a series of time points, for example, the cell division cycle processes of yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae [1,2], bacterium Caulobacter crescentus [3], and human being [4].
