Abstract

The product of nitrate respiration in and a number of other rhizobia capable of anaerobic growth utilizing nitrate was NO. No N or ammonia was formed. Nitrate reduction was linked to ATP formation during anaerobic but not during aerobic growth. Free-living rhizobia may remove fixed nitrogen from the soil by denitrification.
