All of fourteen sulfate-reducing bacteria tested were able to carry out aerobic respiration with at least one of the following electron donors: H2, lactate, pyruvate, formate, acetate, butyrate, ethanol, sulfide, thiosulfate, sulfite. Generally, we did not obtain growth with O2 as electron acceptor. The bacteria were microaerophilic, since the respiration rates increased with decreasing O2 concentrations or ceased after repeated O2 additions. The amounts of O2 consumed indicated that the… Expand

A common pathway of sulfide oxidation by sulfate‐reducing bacteria
The pathway of sulfide oxidation with oxygen as electron acceptor was studied with five strains of freshwater, marine and alkaliphilic sulfate-reducing bacteria. Electrode measurements with washedExpand
Influence of oxygen on sulfate reduction and growth of sulfate-reducing bacteria
The ambivalent relations of sulfate-reducing bacteria to molecular O2 have been studied with ten freshwater and marine strains. Generally, O2 was reduced prior to sulfur compounds and suppressed theExpand
Elemental sulfur as an intermediate of sulfide oxidation with oxygen byDesulfobulbus propionicus
The sulfate-reducing bacteriumDesulfobulbus propionicus oxidized sulfide, elemental sulfur, and sulfite to sulfate with oxygen as electron acceptor. Thiosulfate was reduced and disproportionatedExpand
Novel Processes for Anaerobic Sulfate Production from Elemental Sulfur by Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria
TLDR
Desulfobulbus propionicus is the first example of a pure culture known to disproportionate S and provides a potential explanation for the Mn(IV)-dependent sulfate production that previous studies have observed in anoxic marine sediments. Expand

TLDR
The study of the degradation pathways of organic substrates by sulfate-reducing prokaryotes has led to the discovery of novel non-cyclic pathways for the oxidation of the acetyl moiety of acetyl-CoA to CO2. Expand
A sulfate-reducing bacterium from the oxic layer of a microbial mat from Solar Lake (Sinai), Desulfovibrio oxyclinae sp. nov.
TLDR
It is concluded that strain P1B is oxygen-tolerant but does not carry out sulfate reduction in the presence of oxygen under the conditions tested, and a new species, Desulfovibrio oxyclinae, is proposed. Expand

  • 2000
Throughout the first 90 years after their discovery, sulfate-reducing bacteria were thought to be strict anaerobes. During the last 15 years, however, it has turned out that they have manifoldExpand
Syntrophic growth of sulfate-reducing bacteria and colorless sulfur bacteria during oxygen limitation
TLDR
Both organisms were shown to benefit from a syntrophic interaction in which lactate was oxidized with oxygen, with a rapid cycling of sulfide and zerovalent sulfur serving the transfer of reducing equivalents between the species. Expand
Microbiological disproportionation of inorganic sulfur compounds
The disproportionation of inorganic sulfur intermediates at moderate temperatures (0–80 °C) is a microbiologically catalyzed chemolithotrophic process in which compounds like elemental sulfur,Expand
The transformation of inorganic sulfur compounds and the assimilation of organic and inorganic carbon by the sulfur disproportionating bacterium Desulfocapsa sulfoexigens
TLDR
The physiology of the sulfur disproportionator Desulfocapsa sulfoexigens was investigated in batch cultures and in a pH-regulated continuously flushed fermentor system and it was shown that in the presence of hydrogen, a respiratory type of process is favored before the disproportionation of sulphite, thiosulphate and elemental sulfur.

Aerobic sulfate reduction in microbial mats.
TLDR
Evidence that dissimilatory sulfate reduction can occur within the well-oxygenated photosynthetic zone of hypersaline bacterial mats in the presence of O2 challenges the conventional view that sulfate Reduction is a strictly anaerobic process. Expand

TLDR
The results indicated that probably both, ΔpH and ΔΨ drive sulfate accumulation and that sulfate is taken up electrogenically in symport with more than 2 protons, and not in favour of an ATP-dependent transport system. Expand
