  • a Plus indicates growth on or reduction [Fe(III) and Mn(IV)] of the substrate similar to the wild type. Minus indicates lack of growth on the corresponding substrate. Lactate (20 mM) served as the electron donor and carbon source. Terminal electron acceptors were included in the anaerobic medium at 10 mM. ND, not determined.
