UvA-DARE ( Digital Academic Repository ) Cleavage of dimethylsulfoniopropionate and reduction of acrylate by Desulfovibrio acrylicus sp . nov

From anoxic intertidal sediment, a dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP)-cleaving anaerobe (strain W218) was isolated that reduced the acrylate formed to propionate. The bacterium was vibrioto rod-shaped and motile by means of multiple polar flagella. It reduced sulfate, thiosulfate, and acrylate, and used lactate, fumarate, succinate, malate, pyruvate, ethanol… CONTINUE READING
