Interference of chlorate and chlorite with nitrate reduction in resting cells of Paracoccus denitrificans.


When grown anaerobically on a succinate+nitrate (SN) medium, Paracoccus denitrificans forms the membrane-bound, cytoplasmically oriented, chlorate-reducing nitrate reductase Nar, while the periplasmic enzyme Nap is expressed during aerobic growth on butyrate+oxygen (BO) medium. Preincubation of SN cells with chlorate produced a concentration-dependent… (More)
