This research investigated spatial-temporal variation in benthic bacterial community structure, rates of denitrification and dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium DNRA processes and abundances of corresponding genes and transcripts at three sites—the estuary-head, mid-estuary and the estuary mouth EM along the nitrate gradient of the Colne estuary over an annual cycle.

Relatively little attention has been paid to integrating gaseous N 2 O generated by wastewater treatment into overall reactive nitrogen Nr pollution reduction. We propose that there is potential for substantial reductions in N 2 O emissions through the addition of denitrification processes to existing nitrifying wastewater treatment plants WWTPs , which are designed to lower ammonia levels but currently do not reduce overall Nr.
In addition to providing the benefit of reducing total nitrogen concentrations in the effluent, this kind of WWTP upgrade has been demonstrated to reduce energy consumption and fossil CO 2 emissions.
Even if biological nitrogen removal BNR treatment were mandated by existing and future water quality regulations, a GHG crediting system could still be created to promote BNR design and operation that drive N 2 O emissions below a baseline to even lower levels.
In this case GHG credits could offset around 0. View Author Information. Phone: Fax: Cite this: Environ. Article Views Altmetric -. Citations Cited By.

Mechanism and mathematical modeling of electro-enzymatic denitrification
Facultative anaerobic bacteria perform denitrification as a type of respiration that reduces oxidized forms of nitrogen in response to the oxidation of an electron donor such as organic matter. Denitrification can leak N 2 O, which is an ozone-depleting substance and a greenhouse gas that can have a considerable influence on global warming. The process is performed primarily by heterotrophic bacteria such as Paracoccus denitrificans and various pseudomonads ,  although autotrophic denitrifiers have also been identified e. Direct reduction from nitrate to ammonium , a process known as dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium or DNRA ,  is also possible for organisms that have the nrf- gene. Other genes known in microorganisms which denitrify include nir nitrite reductase and nos nitrous oxide reductase among others;  organisms identified as having these genes include Alcaligenes faecalis , Alcaligenes xylosoxidans , many in the genus Pseudomonas , Bradyrhizobium japonicum , and Blastobacter denitrificans. Denitrification generally proceeds through some combination of the following half reactions, with the enzyme catalyzing the reaction in parentheses:. In nature, denitrification can take place in both terrestrial and marine ecosystems.

Denitrification in human dental plaque
The second step of the dissimilatory denitrification pathway in which nitrite NO 2 - is converted to nitric oxide NO is catalyzed by the enzyme nitrite reductase. Two distinct enzymes are found in nature that catalyze this reaction, and they contain different metal sites, either iron Fe , in the form of heme, or copper Cu Zumft, The Pseudomonas stutzeri P.

Metrics details. Microbial denitrification is not considered important in human-associated microbial communities. Accordingly, metabolic investigations of the microbial biofilm communities of human dental plaque have focused on aerobic respiration and acid fermentation of carbohydrates, even though it is known that the oral habitat is constantly exposed to nitrate NO 3 - concentrations in the millimolar range and that dental plaque houses bacteria that can reduce this NO 3 - to nitrite NO 2 -. We show that dental plaque mediates denitrification of NO 3 - to nitric oxide NO , nitrous oxide N 2 O , and dinitrogen N 2 using microsensor measurements, 15 N isotopic labelling and molecular detection of denitrification genes. In vivo N 2 O accumulation rates in the mouth depended on the presence of dental plaque and on salivary NO 3 - concentrations. NO and N 2 O production by denitrification occurred under aerobic conditions and was regulated by plaque pH. Increases of NO concentrations were in the range of effective concentrations for NO signalling to human host cells and, thus, may locally affect blood flow, signalling between nerves and inflammatory processes in the gum.
