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
A marine microbial consortium apparently mediating anaerobic oxidation of methane
A large fraction of globally produced methane is converted to CO2 by anaerobic oxidation in marine sediments. Strong geochemical evidence for net methane consumption in anoxic sediments is based onExpand
Studies on dissimilatory sulfate-reducing bacteria that decompose fatty acids
Gliding motility, ultrastructure and nutrition of two newly isolated filamentous sulfate-reducing bacteria, strains 5ac10 and 4be13, were investigated. The filaments were always attached to surfaces.Expand
Anaerobic, nitrate-dependent microbial oxidation of ferrous iron.
Enrichment and pure cultures of nitrate-reducing bacteria were shown to grow anaerobically with ferrous iron as the only electron donor or as the additional electron donor in the presence of acetate.Expand
Microbial Reefs in the Black Sea Fueled by Anaerobic Oxidation of Methane
Massive microbial mats covering up to 4-meter-high carbonate buildups prosper at methane seeps in anoxic waters of the northwestern Black Sea shelf. Strong 13C depletions indicate an incorporation ofExpand
Studies on dissimilatory sulfate-reducing bacteria that decompose fatty acids
Three strains (2ac9, 3ac10 and 4ac11) of oval to rodshaped, Gram negative, nonsporing sulfate-reducing bacteria were isolated from brackish water and marine mud samples with acetate as sole electronExpand
Anaerobic oxidation of ferrous iron by purple bacteria, a new type of phototrophic metabolism.
Anoxic iron-rich sediment samples that had been stored in the light showed development of brown, rusty patches. Subcultures in defined mineral media with ferrous iron (10 mmol/liter, mostlyExpand
