Chemolithotrophic oxidation of reduced sulfur compounds was studied in the betaproteobacterium Tetrathiobacter kashmirensis in correlation with its transposon (Tn5-mob)-inserted mutants impaired in sulfur oxidation (Sox(-)) and found to be carried out via the tetrathionate intermediate (S(4)I) pathway. The group of
