Phosphorus composition and release in sediment bacteria of the genus Pseudomonas during aerobic and anaerobic conditions

Abstract

A substantial amount of sediment phosphorus can be bound in bacterial biomass. In this study the fractional composition of phosphorus in the bacteria Pseudomonas was determined by sequential extraction with ammonium chloride, sodium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid according to the scheme of Hieltjes & Lijklema (1980). Both non-labelled and 32P-labelled… (More)
