38) In addition, sulfate-reducing bacteria, such as Desulfovibrio species, are anaerobes that reduce sulfate to hydrogen sulfide (H2S).
Numerous bacterial genera have been identified which are able to reduce ferric iron, such as Pseudomonas, Bacillus, Bacteroides, Desulfovibrio, Sulfolobus, Thiobacillus, Shewanella, Desulfomonas, Desulforomusa, Geobacter, and Pelobacter.
To ensure the study was as harsh as possible, all five key bacteria species responsible for MIC were included in the qPCR testwork: Desulfovibrio desvlfricans (SRB), Shewanella putrefaciens (IRB), Thiobacillus thioparus (SOB), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (biofilm) and Methanolibacter arachidis (methanogen).
Similarly, it was reported that the growth of the sulphate-reducing bacterium, Desulfovibrio desulfuricans G-20, in the presence of only 6 [micro]M of Cu (II) was characterized by significantly lower maximum specific growth rate and biomass yield, as well as longer lag period (Sani et-al.
