Abstract

SUMMARY: The reduction of tetrathionate to thiosulphate by anaerobically growingCitrobacter caused a significant rise in specific growth rate and molar growth yield. It enabled alsoanaerobic growth on non-fermentable carbon sources and resembled therefore the respiratory reduction of nitrate to nitrite. The efficiency of energy production by tetrathionate respiration amounted to only two-thirds that of nitrate respiration.
