Arsenic is ubiquitous in the biosphere and frequently reported to be an environmental pollutant. Global cycling of arsenic is affected by microorganisms. This paper describes a new bacterial strain which is able to efficiently oxidize arsenite (As[III]) into arsenate (As[V]) in liquid medium. The rate of the transformation depends on the cell density… CONTINUE READING
