 Bacterial strain GR-1 was isolated from activated sludge for its ability to oxidize acetate with perchlorate as electron acceptor. Sequencing of 16S rDNA revealed the isolate to belong to the β subgroup of Proteobacteria. When strain GR-1 was grown on acetate and perchlorate, the release of chloride was proportional to the disappearance of perchlorate, showing that this compound was completely reduced. In addition to perchlorate, strain GR-1 used chlorate, oxygen, nitrate and Mn(IV) as… CONTINUE READING
