The effect of sodium nitrite on the growth of Micrococcus denitrificans



203 59 59 1 3 Carlton Bovell Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University Pacific Grove California Department of Life Sciences University of California Riverside California USA Summary Nitrite accumulates during the growth of M. denitrificans in a medium in which nitrate is the terminal oxidant. If H 2 is the electron donor for nitrate reduction, the level of nitrite produced is sufficiently high to inhibit hydrogenase; this inhibition consequently inhibits growth. Yeast extract alleviates the inhibition and permits a resumption of growth. The release from inhibition may result from the provision of a growth factor for or from a more rapid induction of, a system for nitrite dissimilation.
