Abstract The effect of pH on surface growth and activity of Nilrobacter was studied in batch and continuous flow systems and on glass coverslips and anion-exchange resin beads. In batch culture with an initial nitrite concentration of 50 μg NO 2 − -N ml −1 freely-suspended cells had a pH optimum of 7.5 and a pH minimum of 6, which was reduced to 5.5 at lower initial nitrite concentrations. Free cells grew in continuous culture at pH 5.5 and nitrite oxidation rate per cell decreased with… CONTINUE READING
