Abstract

Shewanella oneidensis couples anaerobic oxidation of lactate, formate, and pyruvate to the reduction of vanadium pentoxide (V(V)). The bacterium reduces V(V) (vanadate ion) to V(IV) (vanadyl ion) in an anaerobic atmosphere. The resulting vanadyl ion precipitates as a V(IV)-containing solid.
