The aim of this study was to characterize a facultative chemolithotrophic arsenite-oxidizing bacterium by evaluating the growth and the rate of arsenite oxidation and to investigate the genetic determinants for arsenic resistance and CO2 fixation. The strain under study, Ancylobacter dichloromethanicus As3-1b, in a minimal medium containing 3 mM of arsenite as electron donor and 6 mM of CO2–bicarbonate as the C source, has a doubling time (td) of 8.1 h. Growth and arsenite oxidation were… CONTINUE READING
