The response of MnO2 reduction by uninduced and induced whole cells and cell extracts of Bacillus 29 to several electron transport inhibitors was compared. MnO2 reduction with glucose by uninduced whole cells and cell extracts was strongly inhibited at 0.1 mM dicumarol, 100 mM azide, and 8 mM cyanide but not by atebrine or carbon monoxide, suggesting the involvement of a vitamin K--type quinone and a metalloenzyme in the electron transport chain. MnO2 reduction with ferrocyanide by uninduced… Expand
Effects of electron donors and acceptors on anaerobic reduction of azo dyes by Shewanella decolorationis S12
TLDR
The bacterial anaerobic azoreduction by strain S12 was a biochemical process that oxidizes the electron donors and transfers the electrons to the acceptors through a multicompound system related to electron transport chain. Expand
Inhibitor studies of dissimilative Fe(III) reduction by Pseudomonas sp. strain 200 ("Pseudomonas ferrireductans")
TLDR
In uninduced cells respiring anaerobically, electron transport was limited by ferrireductase activity, which may disappear among induced cells, and models of induced and uninduced electron transport chains are presented. Expand

TLDR
Findings not only expand the number of potential electron acceptors known for microbial energy conservation but also elucidate the mechanisms of microbial anaerobic azoreduction. Expand

Metal oxidoreduction by microbial cells
  • T. Wakatsuki

TLDR
Microorganisms can utilize essential metal elements and detoxify excess metals by respective reducing enzyme systems and by regulating movement of heavy metal ions through regulation of oxidoreduction states. Expand
Novel mode of microbial energy metabolism: organic carbon oxidation coupled to dissimilatory reduction of iron or manganese.
TLDR
This is the first demonstration that microorganisms can completely oxidize organic compounds with Fe(III) or Mn(IV) as the sole electron acceptor and that oxidation of organic matter coupled to dissimilatory Fe( III), Mn( IV), or Mn (IV) reduction can yield energy for microbial growth. Expand
Energy generation coupled to azoreduction by membranous vesicles from Shewanella decolorationis S12.
TLDR
Solid evidence of a mechanism of microbial dissimilatory azoreduction on a subcell level is offered and is confirmed by the fact that the ATP synthesis was repressed by the ATPase inhibitor N,N'-dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCCD). Expand
Respiratory inhibitors of a magnetic bacterium Magnetospirillum sp. AMB-1 capable of growing aerobically
TLDR
Growth and magnetite formation of strain AMB-1 were reduced by dicumarol, which also inhibited iron reduction under anaerobic conditions, whereas iron reduction was not inhibited by HQNO and KCN. Expand

TLDR
The MnO(2)-reductase activity of induced cells and extracts from them was no greater in the absence of oxygen than in its presence, confirming an earlier observation that MnO (2) and O(2) do not compete as terminal electron acceptors in the respiratory activity of this organism. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that oxygen is needed for culture adaptation to MnO(2) reduction, and that oxygen does not interfere with microbial MnO (2) Reduction itself. Expand

TLDR
One way whereby nodule formation may be initiated in the oceans is suggested, as bacteria in the nodules were found to release manganese from them in the presence of glucose and peptone, and bacteria may play a role not only in nodule buildup but also in nodules breakdown. Expand
