The species representation of Thiobacilli was investigated in horizons F, H and A of spruce forest at ten localities. Concentrations of Thiobacilli in the selected localities and ability of the soils to oxidize sulphur compounds to sulphate were determined. Horizons F exhibited a high oxidative activity, a lower activity was found in horizon H and the lowest one was detected in horizon A. The activities showed spring and autumn maxima. Horizons F, H and A contained 104-105, 102-103 and 10l-103, respectively, Thiobacilli in 1 g dry soil.Thiobacillus thioparus was detected in all three horizons from all localities,T.thiooxidans was found in all horizons F, only in some horizons H and was not detected in horizons A.T.novellus was found only in some samples without any relation to the horizons,T. denitrificans was not detected at all.
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.
SUMMARY: Further evidence for the inclusion of polythionates in the pathway of thiosulphate oxidation by members of the genus Thiobacillus is presented. Manometric experients showed tetrathionate oxidation to be a stage in thiosulphate oxidation by tspensions of T. thioparus and T. thiocyanoxidans. Thiobacillus thioparus accumulated a sufficient concentration of polythionate in the medium to allow chromatorams to be prepared, and the type of polythionate accumulated was influenced by the ratio between the sodium and potassium ions in the medium. The restriction of the oxidation of tetrathionate at the lower concentrations of K+ may be due to a restriction in the entry of phosphate into the cell during growth; this is discussed.

Sulfate is an anion that is normally associated with the environment in which the organism is found, e.g., acid mine drainage water. It was initially believed to act as a bridging ligand between ferrous iron and the cell (16, 17). Further experiments showed its role in the transfer of electrons from an iron sulfur cluster to the copper(II) ion of rusticyanin in the oxygen-dependent iron oxidation electron transport chain (8). A sulfate requirement for rusticyanin reduction by ferrous iron was also reported with a partially purified iron:rusticyanin oxidoreductase (3). Figure 1 shows that sulfate up to a concentration of 0.2 M had very little effect on either the iron or sulfur oxidation pathway. Beyond this point, iron oxidation was only marginally affected, while sulfur oxidation showed a dramatic drop in activity. This apparent preferential inhibition of sulfur oxidation at high sulfate concentrations is believed to be caused by changes in osmotic pressure, as it was observed in all other ...
Bacteria display the greatest range in metabolic ability of any group of organisms. There are both autotrophic and heterotrophic bacteria. Heterotrophic bacteria are a crucial link in the decomposition of organic matter and the cycling of nutrients in aquatic systems.. Autotrophic bacteria are primary producers in aquatic systems as are true algae. For this reason, autotrophic bacteria (predominantly cyanobacteria) are often categorized as algae, though the organisms are by no means closely related. Cyanobacteria used to be mistakenly called blue-green algae. Ecologically, much of what applies to algae is relevant to autotrophic bacteria.. Fungi. Fungi occur as single cells, and in filaments called hyphae. Most aquatic fungi are microscopic; those known as hyphomycetes are the most abundant and important. Fungi are heterotrophic, and, like heterotrophic bacteria, obtain their nutrition by secreting exoenzymes into their immediate environment, which break compounds down into simpler ...
Anoxic respirometry was applied to characterize a sulfide-oxidizing nitrate-reducing (SO-NR) culture obtained from an anoxic biogas desulfurizing biotrickling filter treating high loads of H2S. Immobilized biomass extracted from the biotrickling filter was grown in a suspended culture with thiosulfate as electron donor to obtain the biomass growth yield and the S2O32-/NO3- consumed ratio. Afterward, respirometry was applied to describe thiosulfate oxidation under anoxic conditions. A pure culture of Thiobacillus denitrificans was also used as a control culture in order to validate the procedure proposed in this work to characterize the SO-NR biomass. Respirometric profiles obtained with this microbial culture showed that nitrite was formed as intermediate during nitrate reduction and revealed that no competitive inhibition appeared when both electron acceptors were present in the medium. Although final bioreaction products depended on the initial S2O32-/NO3- ratio, such ratio did not affect ...

On the basis of Gram staining method bacteria are classified into two types. They are Gram positive bacteria and Gram negative bacteria. Bacteria are also classified according to their growth and reproduction. Such classification includes Autotrophic bacteria and heterotrophic bacteria. Autotrophic bacteria take the required carbon from carbon dioxide by itself. Some types of autotrophs will use sunlight to transform carbon dioxide to sugar. While heterotrophic bacteria will take sugar or carbon from the environment they live ...

Prokaryotic vs. Eukaryotic cells - key characteristics. Give overview of evolution theories of eukaryotic cell from an earlier and simpler cell type.. Prokaryotic cells are primitive cells; they have a cell wall and free-floating DNA within. They make up the branches of bacteria and archaea. Eukaryotic cells are highly organized cells with specialized organelles and a nucleus to house their genetic material. Eukaryotes evolved from prokaryotes (archaea) about a billion years ago.

Isolation and characterization of cytochrome oxidase protein subunits from mammalian mitochondria and two micro-organisms (Thermophilic bacteria P53 and Thiobacillus ferrioxidans). Our goal is to compare the common protein subunits and their individual functions. The procedures to identify these subunits are by Elisa and Western blot analyses using polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies previously prepared against the mammalian species. So far, we have found that the three largest subunits are common in all cytochrome oxidase samples, while little information is known about the smaller subunits. Our eventual aim is to understand the detailed enzyme mechanism of this important terminal member of electron transport chain and its contribution to energy transduction ...

BACKGROUND: This lab will help students develop a better understanding of characteristics of organisms belonging to Monera, Protista, Plantae, and Fungi. Many of the smaller representatives of these groups are called microbes.. The Monera are single-celled organisms that do not possess a true nucleus, they are presently divided into two large Kingdoms, the Eubacteria and Archeobacteria. They are divided into these groups dependant on their nuclear structure. Their nucleus has no outer membrane and the cell is called prokaryotic. All other living organisms are eukaryotic, which have a membrane surrounding the nucleus.. Monera (sometimes referred to as bacteria or blue green algae) are microscopic. They are either autotrophic or heterotrophic. An autotroph is an organism that can build its own food from chemicals like carbon dioxide and water. Monera that do not make their own food are heterotrophic and must seek a supply of food. Heterotrophs depend on tissues, remains, and wastes of other ...

A new mesophilic, chemolithoautotrophic, sulfur-oxidizing bacterium, strain Milos-BII1T, was isolated from a sediment sample taken from a shallow-water hydrothermal vent in the Aegean Sea with thiosulfate as electron donor and CO2 as carbon source. Based on the almost complete sequence of the 16S rRNA gene, strain Milos-BII1T forms a phylogenetic cluster with Thiobacillus hydrothermalis, Thiobacillus neapolitanus, Thiobacillus halophilus and Thiobacillus sp. W5, all of which are obligately chemolithoautotrophic bacteria. Because of their phylogenetic relatedness and their physiological similarities it is proposed to transfer these organisms to a newly established genus within the gamma-subclass of the Proteobacteria, Halothiobacillus gen. nov. (Kelly and Wood 2000). Strain Milos-BII1T represents a new species of this genus, named Halothiobacillus kellyi. Cells were Gram-negative rods and highly motile. The organism was obligately autotrophic and strictly aerobic. Nitrate was not used as electron ...

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 ...

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 ...

Lithotrophs are a diverse group of organisms using inorganic substrate (usually of mineral origin) to obtain reducing equivalents for use in biosynthesis (e.g., carbon dioxide fixation) or energy conservation (i.e., ATP production) via aerobic or anaerobic respiration. Known chemolithotrophs are exclusively microorganisms; no known macrofauna possesses the ability to use inorganic compounds as energy sources. Macrofauna and lithotrophs can form symbiotic relationships, in which case the lithotrophs are called "prokaryotic symbionts". An example of this is chemolithotrophic bacteria in giant tube worms or plastids, which are organelles within plant cells that may have evolved from photolithotrophic cyanobacteria-like organisms. Lithotrophs belong to either the kingdom Bacteria or the kingdom Archaea. The term "lithotroph" was created from the Greek terms lithos (rock) and troph (consumer), meaning "eaters of rock". Many lithoautotrophs are extremophiles, but this is not universally so. ...

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].

Introduction. Chemistry coursework Robyn Hoaksey 11Oh Rates An investigation into whether sodium Thiosulphate concentration affects the rate of reaction. Prediction: I think that when there is a higher concentration of sodium thiosulphate the faster the reaction between sodium thiosulphate and hydrochloric acid will be. I think this because when there is a higher concentration of sodium thiosulphate, the more particles of sodium thiosulphate are and so more colliding with the acid making a faster reaction. Low Concentration of Sodium High Concentration of Sodium Thiosulphate. Thiosulphate. Preliminary Work: I thought that it would be best to have a test of the practical I would be doing. For this experiment, I took the highest and lowest amount of sodium thiosulphate. I also wanted to find out what amount of acid would be suitable for the experiment. We chose to use a 250ml beaker. This was so that the overall surface area would stay the same and would therefore keep the test fair. ...read more. ...

N2 - ATPase was purified 51-fold from a chemoautotrophic, obligately acidophilic iron-oxidizing bacterium, Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans NASF-1. The purified ATPase showed the typical subunit pattern of the F1-ATPase on a polyacrylamide gel containing sodium dodecyl sulfate, with 5 subunits of apparent molecular masses of 55, 50, 33, 20, and 18 kDa. The enzyme hydrolyzed ATP, GTP, and ITP, but neither UTP nor ADP. The Km, value for ATP was 1.8 mM. ATPase activity was optimum at pH 8.5 at 45°C, and was activated by sulfite. Azide strongly inhibited the enzyme activity, whereas the enzyme was relatively resistant to vanadate, nitrate, and N,N′- dicyclohexylcarbodiimide. The genes encoding the subunits ...
This study was designed to achieve better understanding of (1) how carboxysome genes are regulated and expressed to yield with precise relative ratios and (2) the in vivo roles of two sets of conserved bacterial microcompartment genes, namely the three csoS1 and two csoS4 genes of H. neapolitanus , in the biogenesis and function of the carboxysome. For the first goal, a detailed transcriptional profile of carboxysomal genes in H. neapolitanus was established using absolute quantification real-time RT-PCR and transcript ends analysis. This transcriptional profile revealed that a single promoter, denoted cso promoter, was located upstream from the clustered carboxysomal genes. Transcripts of all nine carboxysomal genes were detectable but were present at different levels. In vivo activities of the cso promoter and selected internal non-coding regions within the carboxysome operon were further examined by using a promoter reporter vector and by generating a cso promoter deletion mutant.

We compared autotroph productivity and fish production in walleye (Stizostedion vitreum) hatchery ponds under two fertilization regimes. Three ponds were fertilized with inorganic N and P (experimental) and three ponds were fertilized with a combination of organic chopped hay, soybean meal, alfalfa meal, and inorganic N and P (control). Daily dissolved oxygen (DO) changes were monitored at three depths. Chlorophyll a concentrations and Secchi depth measurements were taken twice per week. Mean DO concentrations were significantly lower (P|0.0001, n=684) in the control ponds. Average productivity, calculated by either dawn-dusk-dawn DO changes, or diel DO changes measured at 15-min intervals, were not significantly different between the treatments (P|0.05) however, chlorophyll a concentrations were significantly higher in control ponds (19.21 vs. 7.09 μg/l in experimental ponds). Secchi depth did not correlate with algal productivity or biomass. Higher alkalinity did not increase algal production or
