In the course of the search for N2O-utilizing microorganisms, two novel strains of haloalkaliphilic denitrifying bacteria, Z-7009 and AIR-2, were isolated from soda lakes of Mongolia and Kenya. These microorganisms are true alkaliphiles and grow in the pH ranges of 8.0-10.5 and 7.5-10.6, respectively. They are facultative anaerobes with an oxidative type of metabolism, able to utilize a wide range of organic substrates and reduce nitrate, nitrous oxide, and, to a lesser extent, nitrite to… CONTINUE READING
