Severe hypoxia leads to excess production of hydrogen sulfide in marine environments. In this study, we examined the effect of sulfide on growth of four facultative anaerobic marine bacteria in minimal media under anaerobic conditions. The Gram-negative chemolithoautotrophic Marinobacter sp. tolerated sulfide concentrations up to 0.60 mM, with doubling and lag times increasing as a function of increasing sulfide concentration but with no change in maximum culture yields; growth did not occur at… Expand
Enriching distinctive microbial communities from marine sediments via an electrochemical-sulfide-oxidizing process on carbon electrodes
Even though the different mixed cultures have different tolerances for sulfide, electrochemical-sulfide removal can lead to major population changes. Expand
A Matter of Timing: Contrasting Effects of Hydrogen Sulfide on Oxidative Stress Response in Shewanella oneidensis
The results imply that H2S is more important for bacterial survival in such environmental niches than previously believed, and that Shewanella bacteria thrive in redox-stratified environments that have abundant sulfur and iron species. Expand
Inhibition of dark fermentative bio-hydrogen production: A review
Dark fermentative bio-hydrogen production is not commercially exploited due to several factors hindering its production, making the process unfeasible on large scale. This study provided an in-depthExpand
Controls of H2S, Fe2 +, and Mn2 + on Microbial NO3–-Reducing Processes in Sediments of an Eutrophic Lake
The results provide experimental evidence for chemolithotrophic denitrification or DNRA with Fe2+ and H2S in the Lake Lugano sediments, and demonstrate that all tested potential electron donors, despite the beneficial effect at low concentrations of some of them, can inhibit NO3– reduction at high concentration levels.

Mycobacterium tuberculosis metC (Rv3340) derived hydrogen sulphide conferring bacteria stress survival
No study has been previously reported that M. tuberculosis metC (Rv3340) can generates H2S modulating resistant to streptomycin which provides a greater perception toward the treatment and control of tuberculosis. Expand
Occurrence and biosynthesis of 3-mercaptopropionic acid in Methanocaldococcus jannaschii.
It is shown that HMBA can be biosynthesized from malate semialdehyde and hydrogen sulfide, likely using a mechanism similar to that proposed for coenzyme M, coen enzyme B and homocysteine biosynthesis in methanogens, where an aldehyde is converted to a thiol. Expand
Impact of Tannery Effluent on the Self-purification Capacity and Biodiversity Level of a River
Although the physicochemical parameters indicate that the self-purification of the river can be maintained for a certain stream section, the biodiversity of theriver is severely compromised and the importance of the contamination by tannery effluents for the degradation of the stream habitat quality is underpinned.

The variability of δ 34 S and sulfur speciation in sediments of the Sulejów dam reservoir (Central Poland)
Abstract The study was carried out on the Sulejow dam reservoir (Central Poland). Water and sediment samples were collected between February and October 2006. Sulfur compounds in the sediment wereExpand
Greening effect of slag cement-based concrete: Environmental and ecotoxicological impact
Abstract Materials containing ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) display a transient green-blue color after demolding. This greening effect have been investigated for leaching behavior andExpand


Mechanistic study of microbial control of hydrogen sulfide production in oil reservoirs.
The results of the present study show that two mechanisms are involved in microbial control of biogenic sulfide production, possibly by increasing the environmental redox potential to levels which are inhibitory for SRB and NR-SOB. Expand
Effect of hydrogen sulfide on growth of sulfate reducing bacteria
Comparison between acetic acid and hydrogen sulfide inhibition is presented and the concomitant inhibition kinetics are mathematically described and the effect of pH on growth rate was determined. Expand
Effect of inorganic sulfide on the growth and metabolism of Methanosarcina barkeri strain DM
The data suggested that at elevated sulfide levels (12.5 mM) the decrease in YCH4 might be a result of an increase in the relative energy needed for maintnenace and of uncoupling of growth from energy production. Expand
Oxygen-Dependent Growth of the Sulfate-Reducing Bacterium Desulfovibrio oxyclinae in Coculture withMarinobacter sp. Strain MB in an Aerated Sulfate-Depleted Chemostat
This is the first observation of oxygen-dependent growth of a sulfate-reducing bacterium in the absence of either sulfate or thiosulfate. Expand
Sulfide-Dependent Methane Production and Growth of a Thermophilic Methanogenic Bacterium
Two strains of a thermophilic methanogenic bacterium isolated from a coastal surface sediment in the northern part of the Swedish West Coast indicate that a fast turnover rate of reduced sulfur compounds is involved in the energy metabolism of this organism. Expand
Metabolic role and properties of nitrite reductase of nitrate-ammonifying marine Vibrio species
Abstract Nitrate reduction to ammonia by marine Vibrio species was studied in batch and continuous culture. In pH-controlled batch cultures (pH 7.4; 50 mM glucose, 20 mM KNO 3 ), the nitrate consumedExpand
Sulfide inhibition of the methanogenic activity of granular sludge at various pH-levels
Abstract The effect of sulfide on the formation of methane from acetate in granular sludge originating from a UASB reactor has been determined using a new batch anaerobic toxicity assay. The assay isExpand
Mechanism for the hydrogen sulfide‐induced growth limitation in wetland macrophytes
Hydrogen sulfide suppressed the activity of alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH), the enzyme that catalyzes the terminal step in alcoholic fermentation, in the roots of two wetland macrophytes, lending support to the hypotheses that ADH activity, as a mcasurc of fermcntative metabolism, is important in maintaining the root energy status of wetland plants under hypoxic-anoxic conditions.
