Green sulfur bacteria use various reduced sulfur compounds such as sulfide, elemental sulfur, and thiosulfate as electron donors for photoautotrophic growth. This article briefly summarizes what is known about the inorganic sulfur oxidizing systems of these bacteria with emphasis on the biochemical aspects. Enzymes that oxidize sulfide in green sulfur bacteria are membrane-bound sulfide-quinone oxidoreductase, periplasmic (sometimes membrane-bound) flavocytochrome c sulfide dehydrogenase, and… 
Mechanisms and Evolution of Oxidative Sulfur Metabolism in Green Sulfur Bacteria
TLDR
The last common ancestor of currently known GSB was probably photoautotrophic, hydrogenotrophic and contained SQR but not DSR or SOX, and the predominance of the Chlorobium–Chlorobaculum–Prosthecochloris lineage among cultured GSB could be due to the horizontally acquired DSR and SOX systems.
Sulfur globule oxidation in green sulfur bacteria is dependent on the dissimilatory sulfite reductase system.
TLDR
The observation that mutants lacking the DSR system maintain efficient growth suggests that the D SR system is dispensable in environments with sufficiently high sulfide concentrations, and may have been acquired by horizontal gene transfer as a response to a need for enhanced substrate utilization in sulfide-limiting habitats.
Sulfite Oxidation in Chlorobaculum Tepidum
TLDR
The results support an obligate, cytoplasmic sulfite intermediate as part of the canonical sulfur oxidation pathway in C. tepidum that requires the Qmo complex for oxidation.
Sulfur Metabolism in the Extreme Acidophile Acidithiobacillus Caldus
Given the challenges to life at low pH, an analysis of inorganic sulfur compound (ISC) oxidation was initiated in the chemolithoautotrophic extremophile Acidithiobacillus caldus. A. caldus is able to
Enzymology of Hydrogen Sulfide Turnover
Hydrogen sulfide is a biological signaling molecule that is produced by organisms ranging from bacteria to man. Since it is also toxic at high concentrations, strategies exist for its efficient
Physiology and application of sulfur-reducing microorganisms from acidic environments
Sulfur cycle is one of the main geochemical cycles on Earth. Oxidation and reduction reactions of sulfur are mostly biotic and performed by microorganisms. In anaerobic conditions – marine and some
Quantitative proteomics of Chlorobaculum tepidum: insights into the sulfur metabolism of a phototrophic green sulfur bacterium.
Chlorobaculum (Cba.) tepidum is a green sulfur bacterium that oxidizes sulfide, elemental sulfur, and thiosulfate for photosynthetic growth. To gain insight into the sulfur metabolism, the proteome
A deep-sea sulfate reducing bacterium directs the formation of zero-valent sulfur via sulfide oxidation
TLDR
It is reported for the first time that a typical sulfate reducing bacterium Desulfovibrio marinus CS1 directs the formation of ZVS via sulfide oxidation, and thiosulfate reductase and sulfide: quinone oxidoreductase were demonstrated to play key roles in driving ZVS formation.
Flavodoxin with an air-stable flavin semiquinone in a green sulfur bacterium
Flavodoxins are small proteins with a non-covalently bound FMN that can accept two electrons and accordingly adopt three redox states: oxidized (quinone), one-electron reduced (semiquinone), and
The Microbial Sulfur Cycle at Extremely Haloalkaline Conditions of Soda Lakes
TLDR
Microbiological analysis indicated a domination of three groups of haloalkaliphilic autotrophic sulfate-reducing bacteria belonging to the order Desulfovibrionales, including the most physiologically diverse genus Thioalkalivibrio, which covers the whole spectrum of salt/pH conditions present in soda lakes.
