A study was performed to gain insight into the mechanism of acid-tolerant, chemolithotrophic nitrification. Microorganisms that nitrified at pH 4 were enriched from two Dutch acid soils. Nitrate production in the enrichment cultures was indicated to be of a chemolithoautotrophic nature as it was (i) completely inhibited by acetylene at a concentration as low as 1 mumol/liter and (ii) strongly retarded under conditions of carbon dioxide limitation. Electron microscopy of the enrichment cultures… CONTINUE READING
