The sulfate-reducing bacterium, Desulfomonile tiedjei DCB-1, conserves energy for growth from reductive dechlorination of 3-chlorobenzoate via halorespiration. To understand this respiratory process better, we examined electron carriers from different cellular compartments of D. tiedjei. A 50-kDa cytochrome from the membrane fraction was found to be co… CONTINUE READING
