Nitrogen is an essential element of life that needs to be assimilated in its most reduced form, ammonium. On the other hand, nitrogen exists in a multitude of oxidation states and, consequently, nitrogen compounds (NCs) serve as electron donor and/or acceptors in many catabolic pathways including various forms of microbial respiration that contribute to the… CONTINUE READING
