When challenged with reactive oxidants, the nonsulfur phototrophic bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides ATH 2.4.1 exhibited an oxidative stress response during both phototrophic and chemotrophic growth. Upon preincubation with 100 μM H2O2, catalase activity increased fivefold. Catalase was also induced by other forms of oxidative stress, heat-shock, ethanol(More)
Eight homoacetogenic strains of the genera Acetobacterium, Clostridium and Sporomusa were tested for their ability to dechlorinate tetrachloroethylene (perchloroethene, PCE). Of the organisms tested only Sporomusa ovata was able to reductively dechlorinate PCE with methanol as an electron donor. Resting cells of S. ovata reductively dechlorinated PCE at a(More)
