Nitrite, in equilibrium with free nitrous acid (FNA), can inhibit both aerobic and anaerobic growth of microbial communities through bactericidal activities that have considerable potential for control of microbial growth in a range of water systems. There has been much focus on the effect of nitrite/FNA on anaerobic metabolism and so, to enhance(More)
The function of the amino acid Thr246 in L-lactate dehydrogenase from Bacillus stearothermophilus has been investigated by site-directed replacement with glycine. Kinetic experiments with a number of 2-oxo acids showed strongly reduced activity for the mutated enzyme. However, the mutant enzyme shows a relative preference for the large hydrophobic(More)
