Analysis of the conversion of zinc sulfide in the absence of the bacteria and analysis of the conversion of zinc sulfate in the presence of the bacteria produced the same results.

Isolate HGM 8 was able to grow in presence of This strain has unique features as compared to the other members of the species, namely resistance to elevated concentrations of chloride, sulfate and metals. Variant blocks of both types are more numerous near the origin of replication. Information on morphological and physiological properties Morphology and physiology. Cloning, expression, and functional analysis of molecular motor pilT and pilU genes of type IV pili in Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans.

Glycosyltransferases and Zwf Glucose 6-phosphatedehydrogenase might be directly involved in polysaccharide biosynthesis and attachment to minerals by At. The effect of the surfactants is probably due to increased contact between the mineral surface and the organism, and shaking provides the necessary oxygen. Impact of solvent extraction organics on adsorption and bioleaching of A.

Availability in culture collections Strain availability. Do not show this banner again. So far the most studied microorganism in bioleaching is Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans. These efforts lay the foundation for the utilization of this organism in the exploitation of electrical energy for biochemical synthesis. The chromosomal arsenic resistance genes of the acidophilic, chemolithoautotrophic, biomining bacterium Thiobacillus ferrooxidans were cloned and sequenced.

Effect of Surfactants and Shaking. A sevenfold improvement in productivity of isobutyric acid was obtained through improved media formulations in batch cultures. Although the relative oxidation rates of enargite were greater in the presence of L. Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans plays a critical role in metal solubilization in the biomining industry, and occupies an ecological niche characterized by high acidity and high concentrations of toxic heavy metal ions.


Section Name and taxonomic classification Morphology and physiology Culture and growth conditions Isolation, sampling and environmental information Application and interaction Molecular biology Strain availability. ICE Afe 1, an actively excising genetic element from the biomining bacterium Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans.

Evaluation of Leptospirillum ferrooxidans for Leaching

This indicates that the only role of the bacteria under the conditions used is regeneration of ferric ions in solution. What are isolation sources categories? Calculated dilution rates were relatively small 0. The degree of suppression by the cells was related to particle size but not to ferrooxiadns or temperature.

leptospirillmu Characterization of these isolates was done using conventional microbiological, biochemical and molecular methods. Isolation, sequence analysis, and comparison of two plasmids 28 and 29 kilobases from the biomining bacterium Leptospirillum ferrooxidans ATCC Immobilization of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans on sulfonated microporous poly styrene-divinylbenzene copolymer with granulated activated carbon and its use in bio-oxidation of ferrous iron.

Personal tools Log in. Genome News Network, February 6 The extracellular TTH activity described here: Prior to mechanical dewatering, sludge leptos;irillum is indispensable to reduce the difficulty of sludge treatment and disposal.

The formed Fe-precipitates were characterized via X-ray powder diffraction and scanning electron microscope-energy dispersive spectral analysis. The analysis of the data using the shrinking-core model shows that the chemical ferdooxidans of ZnS is limited by the diffusion of ferrous ions through the sulfur product layer at high concentrations of ferrous ions.

Only first 5 entries are displayed. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential of bioleaching for the treatment of an environmentally hazardous waste, a blast-furnace flue dust designated Theisen sludge. During bioleaching, the cells are subjected to changes in the growth temperature and nutrients starvation. Basic microbiological features and genomic properties of this biotechnologically relevant strain are described in this work. The aim of this study was to investigate the physiological differences between the free living planktonic and the sessile biofilm associated lifestyles of Leptospirillum spp.


For referencing data from this strain:. Global transcriptional responses of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans Wenelen under different sulfide minerals.

The genome sequence of A. Experiments were carried out with 3 different oxygen isotope values of water?? Biofilm Formation by a Metabolically Versatile Bacterium. Zinc bioleaching from an iron concentrate using Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans strain from Hercules Mine of Coahuila, Mexico.

It opens a new way to explore the regulation of biofilm formation by biomining micro-organisms during the bioleaching process. Our results give new insights on the response of A. The change in Ra was observed with the treatment of the Cu-Ni alloy using various systems. The pH value plays an important role in the bioleaching of sulphide minerals. The high throughput proteomics approach used here not only helps to understand the physiology of this extreme acidophile but also offers an important contribution to the functional annotation for the available genomes of biomining microorganisms such as A.

It has recently been demonstrated that A. The metal-tolerant strain however, was able to tolerate increases in membrane order without significant compensation via fatty acid composition. Implications for remediation of iron-deficient realgar tailings. Despite its perceived importance, no complete genome sequence of this model species’ type strain is available, limiting the possibilities to investigate the strategies and adaptations Leptospirillum ferriphilum T applies to survive and compete in its niche.

Environmental concern about sulphur dioxide emissions has led to the examination of the possibility of removing pyritic sulphur from coal prior to combustion during froth flotation, a routine method for coal cleaning at the pit-head.
