A strain CSCr-3 with high Cr(VI)-reducing ability under alkaline conditions was isolated from a chromium landfill and identified as Ochrobactrum sp. on the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis. The cells were rod shaped, Gram-negative and motile. The physiological characteristics and Cr(VI)-reduction of the strain were also studied. The results showed(More)
The microbial ecology of the bioleaching of chalcopyrite ores is poorly understood and little effort has been made to handle the microbiological components of these processes. In this study, the composition and structure of microbial communities in acid mineral bioleaching systems have been studied using a PCR-based cloning approach. Denaturing gradient gel(More)
The microbial ecology of the bioleaching of Ni-Cu sulfide is poorly understood and little effort has been made to handle the microbiological components of these processes. In this study, denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) analysis of PCR-amplified 16S rRNA genes fragments from bacteria was used to evaluate the changes of the bacterial community(More)
The effect of L-cysteine in different concentrations on the bioleaching of Ni-Cu sulfide and marmatite were studied with a moderately thermophilic, sulfur-oxidizing bacterium, strain of Acidithiobacillus caldus. X-ray diffraction (XRD) observations showed the change of bioleached solid residues and the effect of L-cysteine on the surface charges of(More)
