Electron transport reactions of denitrification

Abstract:

A study is reported which demonstrates that electron transport to the reductase reactions of denitrification in the bacterium Thiosphaera pantotropha can occur aerobically. Use of dark-type electrodes has demonstrated that the N2O reductase enzyme of this organism is active under aerobic conditions, and that O2 and N2O reduction can occur simultaneously. The reduction of NO3- to N2 gas, even under aerobic conditions...
