The success of enrichments depended on previous exposure of the soil inoculum to s-triazine herbicides. Deaminoethylametryne [4-(1-methylethyl)amino-6-(methylthio)-1,3,5-triazine-2-(1H)-one], methylsulfonic acid, and sodium sulfate could also be used as sulfur sources. Utilization of a compound was quantified as the growth yield per mole of sulfur supplied. Yields were about 6 kg of protein per mol of sulfur. The product of the desulfuration of an s-triazine was identified as the corresponding hydroxy-derivative. This is the first substantiated report of the utilization of these s-triazines as sulfur sources by bacteria.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:30:39Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>Ametryne and Prometryne as Sulfur Sources for Bacteria</dcterms:title> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Hütter, Ralf</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Hütter, Ralf</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Cook, Alasdair M.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Cook, Alasdair M.</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
