Organohalide-Respiring Bacteria by Lorenz Adrian
English | 21 Aug. 2016 | ISBN: 3662498731 | 642 Pages | EPUB (True) | 4.14 MB
This book summarizes the current state of knowledge concerning bacteria that use halogenated organic compounds as respiratory electron acceptors.
The discovery of organohalide-respiring bacteria has expanded the range of electron acceptors used for energy conservation, and serves as a prime example of how scientific discoveries are enabling innovative engineering solutions that have transformed remediation practice. Individual chapters provide in-depth background information on the discovery, isolation, phylogeny, biochemistry, genomic features, and ecology of individual organohalide-respiring genera, including Dehalococcoides, Dehalogenimonas, Dehalobacter, Desulfitobacterium and Sulfurospirillum, as well as organohalide-respiring members of the Deltaproteobacteria. The book introduces readers to the fascinating biology of organohalide-respiring bacteria, offering a valuable resource for students, engineers and practitioners alike.
