Type strains of the purple nonsulfur species Rhodospirillum rubrum, Rhodospirillum photometricum, and Rhodopseudomonas palustris grew phototrophically on a number of two- and three-carbon halocarboxylic acids in the presence of CO2, by reductive dehalogenation and assimilation of the resulting acid. Strains...

The effect of temperature on the inactivation of liver alcohol dehydrogenase and on the alkylation of a model thiol free in solution by bromoacetate, 2-bromopropionate, 3-bromopropionate and 2-bromo-3-(5-imidazolyl)-propionate has been studied and the thermodynamic activation parameters calculated. All the bromoacids...
