Sulfur metabolism of Thiobacillus ferrooxidans and rhodanese-sulfite oxidase enzymes were studied. As disclosed by electron microscope examination, the purified cell envelope of lipopolysaccharide contains a very high quantity of ferric iron. A new colorimetric whole cell assay was developed to study iron oxidation. The presence of pyrophosphatase enzyme was revealed for the first time in chemolithotrophic microorganisms. Study of energy soruces disclosed that the chemolithtrophic T. ferrooxidans can evolve heterotrophic mechanisms and grow on glucose, following the Entner-Doudoroff pathway. (Author)
