It has been found that heterotrophic nitrification by Thiosphaera pantotropha can be inhibited by thiosulphate in batch and chemostat cultures. Allythiourea and nitrapyrin, both classically considered to be specific inhibitors of autotrophic nitrification, inhibited nitrification by Tsa. pantotropha in short-term experiments with resting cell suspensions… CONTINUE READING
