- ... The genus Paenibacillus was hardly described as a Fe(III)-reducing agent, only limited to reduce soluble forms or Fe inserted in poorly crystallized structures. In this study, three Paenibacillus strains capable of reducing manganese oxides in addition to iron oxides were isolated from Cameroonian and Brazilian soils. These strains reduced iron minerals from poorly crystallized 2-line ferrihydrite ...
