Ammonia oxidation, as measured by nitrite production, was inhibited by 2-chloro-6-trichloromethyl-pyridine (nitrapyrin, N-serve) in the methane-oxidizing bacterium,Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b, and the autotrophic nitrifying organisms,Nitrosococcus oceanus andNitrosomonas marina. 6-Chloropicolinic acid, a hydrolysis product of nitrapyrin, was ineffective as an inhibitor of ammonia oxidation by either the methanotroph or the autotrophs. Picolinic acid (2-carboxy-pyridine), in contrast… 
Inhibitors of CH 4 , NH 4 + , and CO Oxidation by Methanotrophs and Nitrifiers
TLDR
Many methanotrophs (family MetlhYloe oe(aee(eae) and chemoautotrophic ammonia oxidizers (family Nitroha(teraceae) have been found to carry out the following reactions):.
Inhibition of nitrification in soil by heterocyclic nitrogen compounds
SummaryThe relationship between the structures of diverse heterocyclic nitrogen (N) compounds and the effectiveness of these compounds for the inhibition of nitrification in soil was studied by
The Chemistry, Biology and Modulation of Ammonium Nitrification in Soil.
TLDR
The current understanding of certain plant metabolites present in tissue and root exudates which are capable of inhibiting bacterial nitrification processes in soil are summarized as well as several synthetic nitrification inhibitors which are co-applied with nitrogen fertilizers to promote nitrogen use efficiency by crops and thus reduce the environmental footprint of industrial agricultural farming practice.
Nitrification inhibition by common plants in New Zealand’s agricultural landscapes
TLDR
Nitrification inhibition by common plants in New Zealand’s agricultural plants is inhibited and this results in fewer greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere by the atmosphere.

TLDR
Soluble extracts of Methylococcus capsulatus (Bath) that readily oxidise methane to methanol will also oxidise ammonia to nitrite via hydroxylamine, and the kinetics of the oxidation were complex and may involve negative cooperativity.
Blockage of methanogenesis in marine sediments by the nitrification inhibitor 2-chloro-6-(trichloromethyl) pyridine (Nitrapyrin or N-Serve)
Nitrapyrin or N-Serve [2-chloro-6-(trichloromethyl)pyridine] blocked methanogenesis associated with slurries of marine sediments. Both nitrapyrin and chloroform, an established inhibitor of
Methane oxidation by Nitrosomonas europaea.
TLDR
It is concluded that methane is an alternative substrate for the NH3-oxidizing enzyme (ammonia mono-oxygenase), albeit with a much lower affinity than for methane mono- oxygengenase of methanotrophs.
The Family Nitrobacteraceae
The biological oxidations of ammonia to nitrite and nitrite to nitrate, collectively referred to as nitrification, are carried out in nature by two physiological groups of Gram-negative,
[Lithotrophic metabolic elements in the obligate methylotroph, Methylococcus thermophilus].
TLDR
Operation of the lithotrophic type of mechanism for energy production at the account of ammonium oxidation makes methane oxidizing bacteria similar to nitrifying microorganisms.
The effect of 2-chloro, 6-(trichloromethyl) pyridine on the chemoautotrophic metabolism of nitrifying bacteria
TLDR
As in theNitrosomonas systems, N-SERVE proved to be inhibitory for the cytochrome oxidase present in the cell-free extracts ofNitrobacter but, again, levels from 80 – 175 ppm were required for a 50 percent inhibition of the enzyme.
The effect of 2-chloro, 6-(trichloromethyl) pyridine on the chemoautotrophic metabolism of nitrifying bacteria
TLDR
Evidence is presented that the action of N-SERVE is on that component of cytochrome oxidase which is involved in ammonia oxidation, and concentrations up to 10−3M of this compound did not affect the cyto chrome oxidase activity of whole cells or cell-free extracts.
