The existence of a hydrogen sulfide:ferric ion oxidoreductase, which catalyzes the oxidation of elemental sulfur with ferric ions as an electron acceptor to produce ferrous and sulfite ions, was assayed with washed intact cells and cell extracts of various kinds of iron-oxidizing bacteria, such as Thiobacillus ferrooxidans 13598, 13661, 14119, 19859, 21834, 23270, and 33020 from the American Type Culture Collection, Leptospirillum ferrooxidans 2705 and 2391 from the Deutsche Sammlung von… CONTINUE READING
