• Examination of metabolic and regulatory networks of desulfovibrio species 

    Hemme, Christopher Lee, 1974- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2004)
    The sulfate-reducing bacteria are a morphologically diverse group of organisms characterized by the ability to couple the enzymatic reduction of sulfate to energy production and growth. This metabolic activity has profound ...
  • Nitrate and nitrite growth inhibition of Desulfovibrio strains 

    Korte, Hannah (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2014)
    Sulfate-reducing bacteria, common non-pathogenic soil bacteria, have the ability to limit the movement of toxic heavy metals from one environmental site to another by keeping those metals from dissolving in water. Limiting ...
  • Protein components of the microbial mercury methylation pathway 

    Smith, Steven D. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2015)
    Mercury (Hg) in the environment and the resulting methylmercury (CH3Hg+) produced by microorganisms has emerged as a global concern in the last 50 years after a series of high profile, large scale contamination events, ...
  • The role of Rex in regulation of sulfate reduction in Desulfovibrio vulgaris Hildenborough 

    Christensen, Geoffrey Alex ([University of Missouri--Columbia], 2014)
    Although the enzymes for dissimilatory sulfate reduction by microbes have been studied, the mechanism for transcriptional regulation of the encoding genes remain unknown. In the work presented here, the model sulfate-reducing ...
