Anoxic photochemical reactions4 6 or a photobiological process involving two photosystems7 9 have also been discussed as mechanisms of ferrous iron oxidation. The knowledge of such processes has implications that bear on our understanding of the origin of Precambrian banded iron formations10 14. The reducing power of ferrous iron increases dramatically at pH values higher than 2 3 owing to the formation of ferric hydroxy and oxyhydroxy compounds1,2,15 (Fig. 1). The standard redox potential of Fe3+/Fe2+ (E 0 = +0.77 V) is relevant only under acidic conditions. At pH 7.0, the couples Fe(OH)3/Fe2+ (E' 0 = -0.236V) or Fe(OH)3 + HCO- 3FeCO3 (E' 0 = +0.200 V) prevail, matching redox potentials measured in natural sediments9,16,17. It should thus be possible for Fe(n) around pH 7.0 to function as an electron donor for anoxygenic photosynthesis. The midpoint potential of the reaction centre in purple bacteria is around +0.45 V (ref. 18). Here we describe purple, non-sulphur bacteria that can indeed oxidize colourless Fe(u) to brown Fe(in) and reduce CO2 to cell material, implying that oxygen-independent biological iron oxidation was possible before the evolution of oxygenic photosynthesis.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://nbn-resolving.org/urn:nbn:de:bsz:352-20140905103416863-3868037-7"/> <dcterms:title>Ferrous iron oxidation by anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria</dcterms:title> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/6528"/> <dc:contributor>Widdel, Friedrich</dc:contributor> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:creator>Assmus, Bernhard</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Schink, Bernhard</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Ehrenreich, Armin</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Widdel, Friedrich</dc:creator> <dc:rights>deposit-license</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Heising, Silke</dc:creator> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Nature 362 (1993), pp. 834-836</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Assmus, Bernhard</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Ehrenreich, Armin</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T17:27:10Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>1993</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Schnell, Sylvia</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Schink, Bernhard</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Schnell, Sylvia</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Heising, Silke</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
