Gram-Negative Mesophilic Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria
An overview of the sulfate-reduction process is given in Chapter 24. Most types of dissimilatory sulfate-reducing bacteria that have been isolated from nature and described so far are mesophilic,… Expand
Anaerobic biodegradation of saturated and aromatic hydrocarbons.
Saturated and aromatic hydrocarbons are wide-spread in our environment. These compounds exhibit low chemical reactivity and for many decades were thought to undergo biodegradation only in the… Expand
Anaerobic bacterial metabolism of hydrocarbons
The capacity of some bacteria to metabolize hydrocarbons in the absence of molecular oxygen was first recognized only about ten years ago. Since then, the number of hydrocarbon compounds shown to be… Expand
The dissimilatory sulfate- and sulfur-reducing bacteria.
Metabolism of alkylbenzenes, alkanes, and other hydrocarbons in anaerobic bacteria
Aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons are the main constituents of petroleum and its refined products. Whereas degradation of hydrocarbons by oxygen-respiring microorganisms has been known for about a… Expand

Anaerobic Hydrocarbon-Degrading Microorganisms: An Overview
The Genus Desulfuromonas and Other Gram-Negative Sulfur-Reducing Eubacteria
The ability to gain energy for growth by dissimilatory reduction of elemental sulfur in a respiratory type of metabolism (with the formation of sulfide) is found in several genera of eubacteria and… Expand
Survival of sulfate-reducing bacteria after oxygen stress, and growth in sulfate-free oxygen-sulfide gradients
Summary The survival after oxygen stress was studied with eight species of sulfate-reducing bacteria. In the absence of sulfide all species tolerated 6 min of aeration without loss of viability. Even… Expand
