Microorganisms pumping iron: anaerobic microbial iron oxidation and reduction
Iron (Fe) has long been a recognized physiological requirement for life, yet for many microorganisms that persist in water, soils and sediments, its role extends well beyond that of a nutritionalExpand

Ubiquity and Diversity of Dissimilatory (Per)chlorate-Reducing Bacteria
ABSTRACT Environmental contamination with compounds containing oxyanions of chlorine, such as perchlorate or chlorate [(per)chlorate] or chlorine dioxide, has been a constantly growing problem overExpand

Microbial perchlorate reduction: rocket-fuelled metabolism
It is less than 7 years since perchlorate, a predominantly man-made toxic anion, was first identified as a significant water contaminant throughout the United States. Owing to its solubility andExpand

Anaerobic benzene oxidation coupled to nitrate reduction in pure culture by two strains of Dechloromonas
Benzene contamination is a significant problem. It is used in a wide range of manufacturing processes and is a primary component of petroleum-based fuels. Benzene is a hydrocarbon that is soluble,Expand

Reduction of (per)chlorate by a novel organism isolated from paper mill waste.
As part of a study on the microbiology of chlorate reduction, several new dissimilatory chlorate-reducing bacteria were isolated from a broad diversity of environments. One of these, strain CKB, wasExpand

Environmental Factors That Control Microbial Perchlorate Reduction
ABSTRACT As part of a study to elucidate the environmental parameters that control microbial perchlorate respiration, we investigated the reduction of perchlorate by the dissimilatory perchlorateExpand

Geobacter hydrogenophilus, Geobacter chapellei and Geobacter grbiciae, three new, strictly anaerobic, dissimilatory Fe(III)-reducers.
Recent studies on the diversity and ubiquity of Fe(III)-reducing organisms in different environments led to the isolation and identification of four new dissimilatory Fe(III)-reducers (strains H-2T,Expand

Dechloromonas agitata gen. nov., sp. nov. and Dechlorosoma suillum gen. nov., sp. nov., two novel environmentally dominant (per)chlorate-reducing bacteria and their phylogenetic position.
Previous studies on the ubiquity and diversity of microbial (per)chlorate reduction resulted in the isolation of 20 new strains of dissimilatory (per)chlorate-reducing bacteria. Phylogenetic analysisExpand

Photosynthetic and Phylogenetic Primers for Detection of Anoxygenic Phototrophs in Natural Environments
ABSTRACT Primer sets were designed to target specific 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) sequences of photosynthetic bacteria, including the green sulfur bacteria, the green nonsulfur bacteria, and the membersExpand

Electrochemical stimulation of microbial perchlorate reduction.
As part of our studies into the diversity of dissimilatory perchlorate reducing bacteria (DPRB) we investigated the reduction of perchlorate in the cathodic chamber of a bioelectrical reactor (BER).Expand
