Abstract

Seven bacteria representing seven genera of enteric bacteria, in addition to Escherichia coli, were shown to reduce nitrite to NO under anaerobic conditions when the cells were grown as nitrate respirers. NO production was inhibited by nitrate and azide and was self limiting, just as was found to be the case previously with E. coli and its nitrate reductase. Maximum initial rates of NO production were observed at pH 5.5-6.
