Here we show that a culture of a lithoautotrophic bacterium purified from marine sediments in Venice can grow by anaerobic oxidation of phosphite (+ III) to phosphate (+ V) while simultaneously reducing sulphate to hydrogen sulphide. To our knowledge, this is the first description of a redox reaction involving phosphorus in microbial energy metabolism, an activity that might have operated on the early Earth and which could represent an ancient evolutionary trait.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:46:28Z</dc:date> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Nature 406 (2000), p. 37</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:issued>2000</dcterms:issued> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:46:28Z</dcterms:available> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
