Physiology and biochemistry of reduction of azo compounds by Shewanella strains relevant to electron transport chain


Azo dyes are toxic, highly persistent, and ubiquitously distributed in the environments. The large-scale production and application of azo dyes result in serious environmental pollution of water and sediments. Bacterial azo reduction is an important process for removing this group of contaminants. Recent advances in this area of research reveal that azo… (More)
