  • Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans (A.f) is a Gram-negative chemolithotrophic bacterium able to oxidize ferrous iron, elemental sulfur and inorganic sulfur compounds. Fe(II)-oxidizing enzyme plays key role in Fe(II)-oxidizing system. Different A.f strains, which were isolated and purified from various ecological niches, show obviously phenotypic diversity after comparison rates of growth and oxidation of Fe2+. The Fe(II)-oxidizing enzyme gene(iro) for five strains was identified by PCR reactions… CONTINUE READING
