Bacteria play crucial roles in the biogeochemical cycle of arsenic (As) and selenium (Se) as these elements are metabolized via detoxification, energy generation (anaerobic respiration) and biosynthesis (e.g. selenocysteine) strategies. To date, arsenic and selenium biomineralization in bacteria were studied separately. In this study, the anaerobic...

Shewanella sp. O23S (Shewanella baltica) was isolated from a dissimilatory arsenate-reducing bacteria (DARB) microbial mat that inhabits the bottom sediments from an ancient gold mine (Złoty Stok, SW Poland) [1]. This strain is unusual in its versatile metabolism of selenium (Se) and arsenic (As), being capable of both detoxification and respiratio...

Industry is constantly searching for methods to treat waste fluxes in an attempt to minimize its environmental impact. Reverse osmosis (RO) is an efficient treatment system, generating a permeate stream (purified water passing through the membrane) and a retentate stream, which concentrates the constituents rejected by the membrane. Currently, a ho...

... Although SRB generate a low amount of chemical energy using sulfates as terminal electron acceptors in anaerobic respiration (Barton and Fauque 2009;Staicu and Barton 2021;Staicu et al. 2022), they are ubiquitous in nature, and therefore they represent an exceptional group of microbes for isolation of novel siderophore-producing SRB strains, with industrial relevance. In addition, owing to their unique systems for Fe and other metals uptake, SRB are an interesting ecological group deserving further investigation. ...
