Interaction-induced redox switch in the electron transfer complex rusticyanin-cytochrome c(4). (1/36)

The blue copper protein rusticyanin isolated from the acidophilic proteobacterium Thiobacillus ferrooxidans displays a pH-dependent redox midpoint potential with a pK value of 7 on the oxidized form of the protein. The nature of the alterations of optical and EPR spectra observed above the pK value indicated that the redox-linked deprotonation occurs on the epsilon-nitrogen of the histidine ligands to the copper ion. Complex formation between rusticyanin and its probable electron transfer partner, cytochrome c(4), induced a decrease of rusticyanin's redox midpoint potential by more than 100 mV together with spectral changes similar to those observed above the pK value of the free form. Complex formation thus substantially modifies the pK value of the surface-exposed histidine ligand to the copper ion and thereby tunes the redox midpoint potential of the copper site. Comparisons with reports on other blue copper proteins suggest that the surface-exposed histidine ligand is employed as a redox tuning device by many members of this group of soluble electron carriers.  (+info)

Effect of various ions, pH, and osmotic pressure on oxidation of elemental sulfur by Thiobacillus thiooxidans. (2/36)

The oxidation of elemental sulfur by Thiobacillus thiooxidans was studied at pH 2.3, 4.5, and 7.0 in the presence of different concentrations of various anions (sulfate, phosphate, chloride, nitrate, and fluoride) and cations (potassium, sodium, lithium, rubidium, and cesium). The results agree with the expected response of this acidophilic bacterium to charge neutralization of colloids by ions, pH-dependent membrane permeability of ions, and osmotic pressure.  (+info)

The chromosomal arsenic resistance genes of Thiobacillus ferrooxidans have an unusual arrangement and confer increased arsenic and antimony resistance to Escherichia coli. (3/36)

The chromosomal arsenic resistance genes of the acidophilic, chemolithoautotrophic, biomining bacterium Thiobacillus ferrooxidans were cloned and sequenced. Homologues of four arsenic resistance genes, arsB, arsC, arsH, and a putative arsR gene, were identified. The T. ferrooxidans arsB (arsenite export) and arsC (arsenate reductase) gene products were functional when they were cloned in an Escherichia coli ars deletion mutant and conferred increased resistance to arsenite, arsenate, and antimony. Therefore, despite the fact that the ars genes originated from an obligately acidophilic bacterium, they were functional in E. coli. Although T. ferrooxidans is gram negative, its ArsC was more closely related to the ArsC molecules of gram-positive bacteria. Furthermore, a functional trxA (thioredoxin) gene was required for ArsC-mediated arsenate resistance in E. coli; this finding confirmed the gram-positive ArsC-like status of this resistance and indicated that the division of ArsC molecules based on Gram staining results is artificial. Although arsH was expressed in an E. coli-derived in vitro transcription-translation system, ArsH was not required for and did not enhance arsenic resistance in E. coli. The T. ferrooxidans ars genes were arranged in an unusual manner, and the putative arsR and arsC genes and the arsBH genes were translated in opposite directions. This divergent orientation was conserved in the four T. ferrooxidans strains investigated.  (+info)

Development and application of small-subunit rRNA probes for assessment of selected Thiobacillus species and members of the genus Acidiphilium. (4/36)

Culture-dependent studies have implicated sulfur-oxidizing bacteria as the causative agents of acid mine drainage and concrete corrosion in sewers. Thiobacillus species are considered the major representatives of the acid-producing bacteria in these environments. Small-subunit rRNA genes from all of the Thiobacillus and Acidiphilium species catalogued by the Ribosomal Database Project were identified and used to design oligonucleotide DNA probes. Two oligonucleotide probes were synthesized to complement variable regions of 16S rRNA in the following acidophilic bacteria: Thiobacillus ferrooxidans and T. thiooxidans (probe Thio820) and members of the genus Acidiphilium (probe Acdp821). Using (32)P radiolabels, probe specificity was characterized by hybridization dissociation temperature (T(d)) with membrane-immobilized RNA extracted from a suite of 21 strains representing three groups of bacteria. Fluorochrome-conjugated probes were evaluated for use with fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) at the experimentally determined T(d)s. FISH was used to identify and enumerate bacteria in laboratory reactors and environmental samples. Probing of laboratory reactors inoculated with a mixed culture of acidophilic bacteria validated the ability of the oligonucleotide probes to track specific cell numbers with time. Additionally, probing of sediments from an active acid mine drainage site in Colorado demonstrated the ability to identify numbers of active bacteria in natural environments that contain high concentrations of metals, associated precipitates, and other mineral debris.  (+info)

Purification and properties of thiosulfate dehydrogenase from Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans JCM7814. (5/36)

A key enzyme of the thiosulfate oxidation pathway in Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans JCM7814 was investigated. As a result of assaying the enzymatic activities of thiosulfate dehydrogenase, rhodanese, and thiosulfate reductase at 5.5 of intracellular pH, the activity of thiosulfate dehydrogenase was measured as the key enzyme. The thiosulfate dehydrogenase of A. thiooxidans JCM7814 was purified using three chromatographies. The purified sample was electrophoretically homogeneous. The molecular mass of the enzyme was 27.9 kDa and it was a monomer. This enzyme had cytochrome c. The optimum pH and temperature of this enzyme were 3.5 and 35 degrees C. The enzyme was stable in the pH range from 5 to 7, and it was stable up to 45 degrees C. The isoelectric point of the enzyme was 8.9. This enzyme reacted with thiosulfate as a substrate. The Km was 0.81 mM.  (+info)

Purificantion and characterization of inorganic pyrophosphatase from Thiobacillus thiooxidans. (6/36)

An inorganic pyrophosphatase [EC 3.6.1.1] was isolated from Thiobacillus thiooxidans and purified 975-fold to a state of apparent homogeneity. The enzyme catalyzed the hydrolysis of inorganic pyrophosphate and no activity was found with a variety of other phosphate esters. The cation Mg2+ was required for maximum activity; Co2+ and Mn2+ supported 25 per cent and 10.6 per cent of the activity with Mg2+, respectively. The pH optimum was 8.8. The molecular weight was estimated to be 88,000 by gel filtration and SDS gel electrophoresis, and the enzyme consisted of four identical subunits. The isoelectric point was found to be 5.05. The enzyme was exceptionally heat-stable in the presence of 0.01 M Mg2+.  (+info)

Analysis of differential-expressed proteins of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans grown under phosphate starvation. (7/36)

Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans is one of the most important bacterium used in bioleaching, and can utilize Fe(2+) or sulphide as energy source. Growth curves for Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans under phosphate starvation and normal condition have been tested, showing lag, logarithmic, stationary and aging phases as seen in other bacteria. The logarithmic phases were from 10 to 32 hours for Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans cultivated with normal cultivating condition and from 20 to 60 hrs for Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans cultivated phosphate starvation. Differences of protein patterns of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans growing in case of normal or phosphate starvation were separately investigated after cultivation at 30(o)C by the analysis of two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE), matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI)-Mass spectrometry. There were total 6 protein spots identified, which were Recombination protein recA, RNA helicase, AP2 domain-containing transcription factor, NADH dehydrogenase I chain D, Hyothetical protein PF1669, and Transaldolase STY3758. From the 6 identified protein spots, 3 proteins were found to be decreased in expression at the cultivating condition of phosphate starvation, while another three upregulated.  (+info)

Simultaneous removal of H2S and NH3 in biofilter inoculated with Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans TAS. (8/36)

H2S and NH3 gases are toxic, corrosive and malodorous air pollutants. Although there are numerous well-established physicochemical techniques presently available for the treatment of these gases, the growing demand for a more economical and improved process has prompted investigations into biological alternatives. In biological treatment methods, H2S is oxidized to SO4(2-) by sulfur-oxidizing bacteria, and then NH3 is removed by chemical neutralization with SO4(2-) to (NH4)2SO4. Since the accumulated (NH4)2SO4 can inhibit microbial activity, it is important to utilize an effective sulfur-oxidizing bacterium that has tolerance to high concentrations of (NH4)2SO4 for the simultaneous removal of H2S and NH3. In this study, a sulfur-oxidizing bacterium with tolerance to high concentrations of (NH4)2SO4 was isolated from activated sludge and identified as Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans TAS. A. thiooxidans TAS could display its sulfur-oxidizing activity in a medium supplemented with 60 g.l(-1) (NH4)2SO4, even though its growth and sulfur-oxidizing activity were completely inhibited in 80 g.l(-1) (NH4)2SO4. When H2S alone was supplied to a ceramic biofilter inoculated with A. thiooxidans TAS, an almost 100% H2S removal efficiency was maintained until the inlet H2S concentration was increased up to 900 microl.l(-1) and the space velocity up to 500 h(-1), at which the amount of H2S eliminated was 810 g-S.m(-3).h(-1). However, when NH3 (50-500 microl.l(-1)) was simultaneously supplied to the biofilter with H2S, the maximum amount of H2S eliminated decreased to 650 g-S.m(-3).h(-1). The inhibition of H2S removal by low NH3 concentrations (50-200 microl.l(-1)) was similar to that by high NH3 concentrations (300-500 microl.l(-1)). The critical inlet H2S load that resulted in over 99% removal was determined as 400 g-S.m(-3).h(-1) in the presence of NH3.  (+info)

Oxidative dissolution of chalcopyrite at ambient temperatures is generally slow and subject to passivation, posing a major challenge for developing bioleaching applications for this recalcitrant mineral. Chloride is known to enhance the chemical leaching of chalcopyrite, but much of this effect has been demonstrated at elevated temperatures. This study was undertaken to test whether 100-200 mM Na-chloride enhances the chemical and bacterial leaching of chalcopyrite in shake flasks and stirred tank bioreactor conditions at mesophilic temperatures. Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans, Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans and abiotic controls were employed for the leaching experiments. Addition of Na-chloride to the bioleaching suspension inhibited the formation of secondary phases from chalcopyrite and decreased the Fe(III) precipitation. Neither elemental S nor secondary Cu-sulfides were detected in solid residues by X-ray diffraction. Chalcopyrite leaching was enhanced when the solution contained bacteria, ...
Some sulfate-reducing bacteria produce hydrogen sulfide, which can cause sulfide stress cracking. Acidithiobacillus bacteria produce sulfuric acid; Acidothiobacillus thiooxidans frequently damages sewer pipes. Ferrobacillus ferrooxidans directly oxidizes iron to iron oxides and iron hydroxides; the rusticles forming on the RMS Titanic wreck are caused by bacterial activity. Other bacteria produce various acids, both organic and mineral, or ammonia. In presence of oxygen, aerobic bacteria like Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans, Thiobacillus thioparus, and Thiobacillus concretivorus, all three widely present in the environment, are the common corrosion-causing factors resulting in biogenic sulfide corrosion. Without presence of oxygen, anaerobic bacteria, especially Desulfovibrio and Desulfotomaculum, are common. Desulfovibrio salixigens requires at least 2.5% concentration of sodium chloride, but D. vulgaris and D. desulfuricans can grow in both fresh and salt water. D. africanus is another common ...

Uporaba mikroorganizmov pri pridobivanju kovin iz mineralnih rud oz. biorudarstvo se je v preteklih nekaj letih razvilo v uspešno in rastočo biotehnološko panogo, kljub temu pa je bila selekcija in spremljanje mikrobnih kultur za optimalno izluževanje minimalna[3]. Vprašanje torej ostaja, ali so trenutne mikrobne populacije v komercialnih postopkih dovolj primerne ali pa bi lahko z umetnim sestavljanjem bakterijskih sevov ustvarili še bolj učinkovite konzorcije[3]. Raziskave so pokazale, da imajo konzorciji različnih bakterij, ki se nahajajo v naravi, večjo sposobnost izluževanja kot čiste kulture[1]. Razlog je v sinergijskih učinkih posameznih vrst bakterij, ki imajo sicer različne funkcije, a skupaj omogočajo izvajanje večstopenjskih procesov[1].

An important characteristic of the acidophilic chemolithotrophs is their general tolerance of high concentrations of metallic and other ions. The levels of resistance of several acidophilic bacteria and archaea to As3+, Cu2+, Zn2+, Cd2+ and Ni+ have recently been reviewed and will not be covered here in detail [25]. As may be predicted, levels of resistance show considerable strain variation. Adaptation to high levels of metal resistance on exposure to a metal is likely to be responsible for much of the variation. At. ferrooxidans appears to be particularly resistant to metals and the bacterium has been reported to grow in medium containing Co2+ (30 g/l), Cu2+ (55 g/l), Ni2+ (72 g/l), Zn2+ (120 g/l), U3O8 (12 g/l) and Fe2+ (160 g/l). In a comparative study of two At. ferrooxidans, two L. ferrooxidans and an At. thiooxidans strain, it was found that At. ferrooxidans and L. ferrooxidans were approximately equally resistant to Cu2+, Zn2+, Al3+, Ni2+ and Mn2+, but that L. ferrooxidans was more ...
The acidithiobacilli are sulfur-oxidizing acidophilic bacteria that thrive in both natural and anthropogenic low pH environments. They contribute to processes that lead to the generation of acid rock drainage in several different geoclimatic contexts, and their properties have long been harnessed for the biotechnological processing of minerals. Presently, the genus is composed of seven validated species, described between 1922 and 2015: Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans, A. ferrooxidans, A. albertensis, A. caldus, A. ferrivorans, A. ferridurans and A. ferriphilus. However, a large number of Acidithiobacillus strains and sequence clones have been obtained from a variety of ecological niches over the years, and many isolates are thought to vary in phenotypic properties and cognate genetic traits. Moreover, many isolates remain unclassified and several conflicting specific assignments muddle the picture from an evolutionary standpoint. Here we revise the phylogenetic relationships within this species complex

Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans has emerged as an economically significant bacterium in the field of biohydrometallurgy, in the leaching of sulfide ores since its discovery in 1950 by Colmer, Temple and Hinkle. The discovery of A. ferrooxidans led to the development of biohydrometallurgy, which deals with all aspects of microbial mediated extraction of metals from minerals or solid wastes and acid mine drainage.[5] A. ferrooxidans has been proven as a potent leaching organism, for dissolution of metals from low-grade sulfide ores. Recently, the attention has been focused upon the treatment of mineral concentrates, as well as complex sulfide ores using batch or continuous-flow reactors. Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans is commonly found in acid mine drainage and mine tailings. The oxidation of ferrous iron and reduced sulfur oxyanions, metal sulfides and elementary sulfur results in the production of ferric sulfate in sulfuric acid, this in turn causes the solubilization of metals and other ...
Monitoring of the microbial community in bioleaching processes is essential in order to control process parameters and enhance the leaching efficiency. Suitable methods are, however, limited as they are usually not adapted to bioleaching samples and often no taxon-specific assays are available in the literature for these types of consortia. Therefore, our study focused on the development of novel quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) assays for the quantification of Acidithiobacillus caldus, Leptospirillum ferriphilum, Sulfobacillus thermosulfidooxidans and Sulfobacillus benefaciens and comparison of the results with data from other common molecular monitoring methods in order to evaluate their accuracy and specificity. Stirred tank bioreactors for the leaching of copper concentrate, housing a consortium of acidophilic, moderately-thermophilic bacteria, relevant in several bioleaching operations, served as a model system. The microbial community analysis via qPCR allowed a precise monitoring of the

In situ microbial reductive immobilization of radionuclides in aquifers and saturated soils is a remedial approach that has been the subject of considerable research effort over the past decade. The essence of this approach is that many radionuclides of concern are redox active and are less soluble in their reduced form and thus can be immobilized in aquifers via microbially mediated reduction under anaerobic conditions. For example, U(VI) in the form of UO22+ and its complexes is relatively soluble in water, whereas the mineral uraninite (UO2), typically formed by U(VI)-reducing bacteria (5, 10), has very low solubility. Since the earliest reports of direct microbial reduction of uranium by Geobacter metallireducens, Shewanella oneidensis (formerly Shewanella putrefaciens), and Desulfovibrio desulfuricans (9-11), other species have also been shown to have this capability. However, recent studies have suggested that microbially mediated U(IV) oxidation could complicate efforts at long-term ...
Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans is a gamma-proteobacterium that lives at pH2 and obtains energy by the oxidation of sulfur and iron. It is used in the biomining industry for the recovery of metals and is one of the causative agents of acid mine drainage. Effective tools for the study of its genetics and physiology are not in widespread use and, despite considerable effort, an understanding of its unusual physiology remains at a rudimentary level. Nearly complete genome sequences of A. ferrooxidans are available from two public sources and we have exploited this information to reconstruct aspects of its sulfur metabolism. Two candidate mechanisms for sulfate uptake from the environment were detected but both belong to large paralogous families of membrane transporters and their identification remains tentative. Prospective genes, pathways and regulatory mechanisms were identified that are likely to be involved in the assimilation of sulfate into cysteine and in the formation of Fe-S centers. Genes and
A combination of EXAFS, transmission electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray was used to conduct a molecular and atomic analysis of the uranium complexes formed by Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans. The results demonstrate that this bacterium accumulates uranium as phosphate compounds. We suggest that at toxic levels when the uranium enters the bacterial cells, A. ferrooxidans can detoxify and efflux this metal by a process in which its polyphosphate bodies are involved. ...

Acidithiobacilli are acidophilic microorganisms that play important roles in many natural processes such as acidification of the environment, influencing metal mobility, and impacting on global sulfur and iron cycles. Due to their distinct metabolic properties they can be applied in the industrial extraction of valuable metals. Acidithiobacilli thrive in an environment which is extremely acidic and usually low in organic carbon but highly polluted with metals. In the quest to gain insight into how these microorganisms can thrive in their extreme environment, relevant facets of metabolism, metal resistance, and pH homeostasis were exploredwith the focus on two model organisms,. Acidithiobacillus caldus and Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans. Understanding these fundamental aspects of an acidophilic lifestyle will help to eventually control detrimental effects on the environment due to acidification and metal pollution as well as improving metal extraction utilizing acidophilic ...
The species of the genus 'Thiobacillus' fall into the alpha-, beta- and gamma-subclasses of the Proteobacteria, the type species Thiobacillus thioparus being located in the beta-subclass. 'Thiobacillus' species exhibit almost as much diversity in DNA composition and physiology as is found collectively in all other proteobacterial groups. On the basis of physiological characters and 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons, eight of the existing Thiobacillus species are proposed for reassignment to three newly designated genera within the gamma-subclass of the Proteobacteria, namely Acidithiobacillus, Halothiobacillus and Thermithiobacillus.
Procedures have been developed for the successful evaluation of four water treatment biocides versus the acid-producing bacteria Thiobacillus novellas and the iron oxidizing bacteria Leptotrhix discophoro, Hyphomicrobium indicium and Sphaerotilis natans. The evaluations were conducted at pH 7.0 and ambient temperature. Each biocide was tested at concentrations that represent recommended treatment dosages for industrial water systems. The Biocidal efficacy was evaluated after a 1, 4, and 7-hour contact time with the organisms. All of the biocides proved to be highly effective against L. discophora, whereas efficacy against T. novellas, H. indicium and S. natans varied.
The fly ash in two-step bioleaching dissolved earlier than that in one-step bioleaching while the calcium oxalate hydrate in two-step bioleaching formed earlier than that in one-step bioleaching. As there were minimal amount of metal ions in the medium, the formation of oxalate salts was insignificant in the pure culture and hence could not be detected in SEM, EDX and XRD analyses. The speculated growth mechanism in one-step bioleaching is the aggregation of swollen spores with fly ash particles after inoculation,. resulting in relatively large pellet nuclei. Adhesion of un-germinated spores and fly ash particle to the large pellet nuclei which contained newly-germinated spores and hyphae also occurred and resulted in a tendency to reduce the overall number of pellets in the medium [16] and [10]. This observation is consistent with the early findings of free spore aggregation Roscovitine of A.niger in batch flask culture and bubble-column fermenters [10]. Calcium oxalate precipitation affects ...
Catalyzes the first step in hexosamine metabolism, converting fructose-6P into glucosamine-6P using glutamine as a nitrogen source.
A series of bacterial and chemical leaching experiments were conducted to clarify contradictory reports in the literature regarding the role of bacteria in the bioleaching of chalcopyrite. Tests containing a high bacterial concentration showed inhibited leaching, even lower than non-inoculated controls. However, when bacterial cells were washed before inoculation, it was apparent that it was not the bacterial cells but rather the chemical species introduced with them that influenced the leaching rate. In addition, the results of comparative tests with 0.1 M ferrous sulphate or ferric sulphate showed that copper was leached from the ore 2.7 times faster in leach solutions containing ferrous ion, suggesting that ferric ions inhibit chalcopyrite dissolution. The results indicated that the chalcopyrite dissolution rate is strongly dependent on the reduction potential (Eh) in solution, and that this parameter is far more influential than the number or activity of bacterial cells. These results imply ...

Multiplicity of the chemical, biological, electrochemical and operational variables and nonlinear behavior of metal extraction in bioleaching environments complicate the mathematical modeling of these systems. This research was done to predict copper and iron recovery from a copper flotation concentrate in a stirred tank bioreactor using a fuzzy logic model. Experiments were carried out in the presence of a mixed culture of mesophilic bacteria at 35° C, and a mixed culture of moderately thermophilic bacteria at 50° C. Input variables were method of operation (bioleaching or electrobioleaching), the type of bacteria and time (day), while the recoveries of copper and iron were the outputs. A relationship was developed between stated inputs and the outputs by means of
Arsenopyrite (FeAsS) and realgar (As4S4) are two common arsenic minerals that often cause serious environmental issues. Centralised treatment of arsenic-containing tailings can reduce land occupation and save management costs. The current work examined the remediation schemes of tailings from Hunan Province, China, where by different tailings containing arsenopyrite and realgar were blended with exogenous slag zero valence iron (ZVI). Introducing Fe-oxidising bacteria (Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans) recreates a biologically oxidative environment. All bioleaching experiments were done over three stages, each for 7 days and the solid phase of all tests was characterised by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and selective extraction analyses. The results showed that the mixture group reduced arsenic release by 72.9-74.7% compared with the control group. The addition of 0.2 g ZVI clearly decreased arsenic ...
Abstract: The prediction of the oxidation rate of elemental sulfur (S0) is a critical step in sulfur (S) fertilizer strategy to supply plant-available sulfur. An incubation experiment was conducted to determine the rate and amount of S0 oxidation in relation to the contribution of Thiobacillus spp. and aerobic heterotrophic S-oxidizing bacteria. After 84 days, 16.3% and 22.4% of the total S0 applied to the soil were oxidized at 20 and 30 °C, respectively. The oxidation of S0 proved to be a two-step process with a rapid oxidation during the first 28 days and a slow oxidation from then on. The highest oxidation rate of 12.8 μg S cm−2 d−1 was measured during the first two weeks at 30 °C. At 20 °C the highest oxidation rate of 10.2 μg S cm−2 d−1 was obtained from two to four weeks after start of the experiment. On an average the soil pH declined by 3.6 and 4.0 units after two weeks of experiment. At the same time the electric conductivity increased nine times. With the oxidation of S0 ...
Spent refinery processing catalyst is listed as a hazardous waste; the toxicity characteristic leaching procedure (TCLP) extracts of the catalyst are found to contain heavy metals at concentrations exceeding the regulated levels. In the present investigation, Aspergillus niger was adapted to single metal ions Ni, Mo or Al (at 100-2000 mg/L in steps of 100 mg/L) and then to a mixture of Ni, Mo and Al (at a mass ratio of 1:2:6, as approximately present in the spent catalyst). Adaptation experiments with single metals showed that the fungus could tolerate up to 1000 mg/L Ni, 1200 mg/L Mo and 2000 mg/L Al. In the presence of a mixture of these metals, the fungus was able to tolerate up to 100 mg/L Ni, 200 mg/L Mo and 600 mg/L Al. One-step bioleaching experiments with 1 wt% spent catalyst (of particle size <37 μm) were carried out using un-adapted and various adapted fungal strains. In contrast to the adapted strains, the un-adapted strain showed no growth in the presence of the catalyst. ...
ABSTRACT: Vertical distributions of viable (most probable number, MPN) aerobic chemoautotrophic thiobacilli-like sulfur-oxidizing bacteria (ca. 70 samples in triplicate for MPN counts) and dark 14C-bicarbonate incorporation rates were analyzed in a series of sulfide-rich lakes. A special device for sampling sharply stratified populations on the scale of a few centimeters was used. Detailed analyses focused on the oxic-anoxic transition zone where aerobic sulfur-oxidizing bacteria should display positive chemotaxis, and in both fully oxic epilimnia and sulfide-rich anoxic hypolimnia. Kinetics of sulfide and thiosulfate potential oxidations in the presence of oxygen were followed in microcosm enrichments in one of the lakes. The highest MPN counts (,104 to 105 cells ml-1) were observed at the oxic-anoxic interfaces and in the depleted hypolimnia (1.3 ± 4.4 × 104 cells ml-1), whereas 1 order of magnitude lower concentrations were detected in the epilimnia (1.0 ± 2.3× 103 cells ml-1). Dark ...
Copper is widely known as a very important material due to its applications in our daily life, such as electrical devices and heating appliances. It is not so common knowledge that copper is not found in its metallic form, but mixed with other metals and elements like sulphur and oxygen. The process to obtain pure copper nowadays implies a strong impact on the environment. Regarding copper sulphides, its reduction to metallic copper is based in the oxidation of the ore products which forms sulphur dioxide (SO2), amongst others. Although SO2 is sent to sulphuric acid production, there are still emissions to the environment. Since the reduction of contaminant emissions has become of a primary concern, several alternatives have been studied to replace the current process. One of the alternatives that is gaining strength is the leaching or bioleaching, where poor ores are treated with solvents (chemical leaching) or with bacteria (bioleaching). The advantages of this process is that low pressures ...

The extraction of metals from ores causes various environmental pollutions. Since Iran is located on the so-called copper belt and holds a significant share of the worlds copper mines and resources, reduction of pollution from these mines can have an important effect on the overall reduction of pollution. Copper processing methods include pyrometallurgy and hydrometallurgy. Pyrometallurgy is mainly used in high grade mines whereas hydrometallurgy process is used in lower grade mines. In low grade copper sulfide mines, hydrometallurgy processes are used which use a lot of energy to covert mineral deposits into oxide forms which are then leached using sulfuric acid, or are extracted using bioleaching process. In acidic leaching, a lot of environmental pollution is created. Bioleaching process is an environmentally-friendly method which is mainly used in mines where the common physicochemical methods are not profitable. In this study, we have tried to increase the efficiency of bioleaching process by
Introduction: Increased usage and improper management of electronic wastes result in immense environmental pollution. Although conventional techniques are well known for heavy metals removal from the environment, their high cost and severe environmental consequences indicate the urgent requirement of cost-effective methods of heavy metals uptake. Bioaccumulation can be considered as an alternative to the traditional methods in terms of their cost-effectiveness and maximum recovery of the metal ions. Materials and Methods: This study deals with the isolation of heavy metals tolerant Gram-positive bacterial strain, Bacillus licheniformis JAJ3, and its application in bioaccumulation of copper, lead, and nickel and bioleaching of heavy metals from electronic waste. 16S rRNA sequencing was performed to identify the bacterial strain. The accumulation study was carried out in a liquid medium and analyzed using atomic absorption spectroscopy. Bioleaching activity was checked using the one-step procedure. For

Seventeen genes specifically required for nitrogen fixation are clustered on the chromosome of Klebsiella pneumoniae and form a complex regulon that is organized into eight transcriptional units. The nif promoters are representative of a new class of promoter, the members of which lack the consensus sequences normally found in prokaryotic promoters, nif gene transcription is positively controlled and requires: (1) the ntrA gene product, which replaces the rpoD-encoded sigma subunit of RNA polymerase to allow recognition of nif promoter sequences; and (2) the product of either the nitrogen regulation gene ntrC or the specific nif regulatory gene, nifA, which are both transcriptional activators. Most nif promoters require an upstream activator sequence (UAS) for nifA-mediated activation. The UAS acts independently of orientation and can function when placed 2 kilobases upstream from the transcription start site. Current evidence suggests that activation requires an interaction between proteins ...

SWISS-MODEL Template Library (SMTL) entry for 1ogp. THE CRYSTAL STRUCTURE OF PLANT SULFITE OXIDASE PROVIDES INSIGHT INTO SULFITE OXIDATION IN PLANTS AND ANIMALS
Sulfur is an essential element for life and the metabolism of organic sulfur compounds plays an important role in the global sulfur cycle. Sulfur occurs in various oxidation states ranging from +6 in sulfate to -2 in sulfide (H2S). Sulfate reduction can occur in both an energy consuming assimilatory pathway and an energy producing dissimilatory pathway. The assimilatory pathway, which is found in a wide range of organisms, produces reduced sulfur compounds for the biosynthesis of S-containing amino acids and does not lead to direct excretion of sulfide. In the dissimilatory pathway, which is restricted to obligatory anaerobic bacterial and archaeal lineages, sulfate (or sulfur) is the terminal electron acceptor of the respiratory chain producing large quantities of inorganic sulfide. Both pathways start from the activation of sulfate by reaction with ATP to form adenylyl sulfate (APS). In the assimilatory pathway [MD:M00176] APS is converted to 3-phosphoadenylyl sulfate (PAPS) and then reduced ...
