Bacterial Oxidation of Elemental Sulfur: Changes in Oxidation Kinetics
We investigated the oxidation of elemental sulfur in resting cells of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans in order to optimize the substrate for sulfur oxidation and to explore oxidation kinetics. We showed that although pH and temperature had no significant effect on the apparent Michaelis constant, cell concentration increased it.
