Nitrosamine formation by denitrifying and non-denitrifying bacteria: implication of nitrite reductase and nitrate reductase in nitrosation catalysis.


Biochemical, microbiological and genetic studies were done to characterize the mechanism of bacterial formation of N-nitrosomorpholine (NMOR) from morpholine and nitrite at neutral pH. In Escherichia coli and Proteus morganii, the nitrosating activity was markedly induced when bacteria were cultured under anaerobiosis in minimal medium containing nitrate… (More)
