Immobilized cells of a Citrobacter species scavenge cadmium with high efficiency from challenge flows containing Cd(2+). Metal uptake by the cells in mediated by a cellbound phosphatase which liberates inorganic phosphate from an organic phosphate to precipitate cadmium as cell-bound metal phosphate. Hitherto glycerol 2-phosphate has served as the phosphate donor, but for an economic large scale process an inexpensive and readily available phosphate donor is required and the use of alkyl… CONTINUE READING
