Maintenance energy model for microbial degradation of toxic chemicals in soil

, : Maintenance energy model for microbial degradation of toxic chemicals in soil. Soil Biology & Biochemistry 28(12): 1729-1737

A new kinetic model incorporating maintenance energy requirements is developed for use in the description of microbial degradation of toxic chemicals in soil. This model better describes extended, long-term CO-2 respiration data that typically occurs when substrate concentrations are low. The model is tested with data from the respiration of 2,4-dinitrophenol (DNP) and pentachlorophenol (PCP) to CO-2 and is shown to statistically fit better than an associated model without maintenance considerations.

The arguments supporting the existence of two molecular forms of the (Na(+), K(+))-ATPase in mammalian brain are reviewed. 1.
