  • Marinobacter santoriniensis NKSG1(T) is a mesophilic, dissimilatory arsenate-reducing and arsenite-oxidizing bacterium isolated from an arsenate-reducing enrichment culture. The inoculum was obtained from arsenic-rich shallow marine hydrothermal sediment from Santorini, Greece, with evidence of arsenic redox cycling. Growth studies demonstrated M. santoriniensis NKSG1(T) is capable of conserving energy from the reduction of arsenate [As(V)] with acetate or lactate as the electron donor, and of… CONTINUE READING
