Anaerobic, nitrate-dependent microbial oxidation of ferrous iron.

Abstract

Enrichment and pure cultures of nitrate-reducing bacteria were shown to grow anaerobically with ferrous iron as the only electron donor or as the additional electron donor in the presence of acetate. The newly observed bacterial process may significantly contribute to ferric iron formation in the suboxic zone of aquatic sediments.
