Methane-Producing Microbial Community in a Coal Bed of the Illinois Basin
ABSTRACT A series of molecular and geochemical studies were performed to study microbial, coal bed methane formation in the eastern Illinois Basin. Results suggest that organic matter is biodegradedExpand

Microbially catalyzed nitrate-dependent oxidation of biogenic solid-phase Fe(II) compounds.
The potential for microbially catalyzed NO3(-)-dependent oxidation of solid-phase Fe(II) compounds was examined using a previously described autotrophic, denitrifying, Fe(II)-oxidizing enrichmentExpand

Enhanced Growth of Acidovorax sp. Strain 2AN during Nitrate-Dependent Fe(II) Oxidation in Batch and Continuous-Flow Systems†
ABSTRACT Microbial nitrate-dependent, Fe(II) oxidation (NDFO) is a ubiquitous biogeochemical process in anoxic sediments. Since most microorganisms that can oxidize Fe(II) with nitrate require anExpand

Chemical and Biological Interactions during Nitrate and Goethite Reduction by Shewanella putrefaciens 200
ABSTRACT Although previous research has demonstrated that NO3− inhibits microbial Fe(III) reduction in laboratory cultures and natural sediments, the mechanisms of this inhibition have not been fullyExpand

Involvement of cytochromes in the anaerobic biotransformation of tetrachloromethane by Shewanella putrefaciens 200.
Shewanella putrefaciens 200 is an obligate respiratory bacterium that can utilize a variety of terminal electron acceptors, e.g., NO3-, NO2-, Fe(III), and trimethylamine N-oxide, in the absence ofExpand

Effects of electron donor and acceptor conditions on reductive dehalogenation of tetrachloromethane by Shewanella putrefaciens 200.
Shewanella putrefaciens 200 is a nonfermentative bacterium that is capable of dehalogenating tetrachloromethane to chloroform and other, unidentified products under anaerobic conditions. Since S.Expand

Inhibition of NO3− and NO2− Reduction by Microbial Fe(III) Reduction: Evidence of a Reaction between NO2− and Cell Surface-Bound Fe2+
ABSTRACT A recent study (D. C. Cooper, F. W. Picardal, A. Schimmelmann, and A. J. Coby, Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 69:3517-3525, 2003) has shown that NO3− and NO2− (NOx−) reduction by ShewanellaExpand

A novel bacterium that utilizes monochlorobiphenyls and 4-chlorobenzoate as growth substrates.
A bacterial isolate, tentatively named SK-3, was isolated from tertiary lagoon sludge contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls for over 25 years. SK-3 was able to grow on 2-chlorobiphenyl,Expand

Enhanced anaerobic transformations of carbon tetrachloride by soil organic matter
Anaerobic, reductive dehalogenation of carbon tetrachloride (CT) by Shewanella putrefaciens 200 is enhanced by the presence of a high-organic-carbon soil. In microbial incubations without soil, 29%Expand
