An autotrophic bacterium able to gain energy from the oxidation of arsenite was isolated from arsenite-containing acid mine drainage waters. It belongs to the genus Thiomonas as shown by DNA-DNA hybridization experiments, 16S rRNA gene sequence, quinone and fatty acid content analyses. Carboxysomes were observed and the cbbSL genes encoding the ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase were detected, confirming that this bacterium is able to fix CO(2). Arsenite oxidation was catalysed by… CONTINUE READING
