- ... Lime manufacture in the UK has resulted in the generation of a number of alkaline sites (>pH 11.0) with complex indigenous microbial populations. Within the present study, retrievable cotton samples were used to investigate the fate of cellulose, the primary carbon source, within three sites aged from ≈25 to 140 years. Following 3 months incubation in situ, biofilms had formed on all cotton sample ...

- ... In this study, a neutrophilic, heterotrophic bacterium (strain Paddy-2) that is capable of ferrous iron [Fe(II)] oxidation coupled with nitrate (NO₃⁻) reduction (NRFO) under anoxic conditions was isolated from paddy soil. The molecular identification by 16S rRNA gene sequencing identified the strain as Cupriavidus metallidurans. Strain Paddy-2 reduced 97.7% of NO₃⁻and oxidized 89.7% of Fe(II) over ...
