use of lactic add instead of sodium lactate.) The medium contained 1800 gM sulfate
and 900 pM lactic acid. The medium was pre-reduced, by boiiing^d p^gmg^wi
N, and dispensed in 60 ml serum bottles in an anaerobic glove box filledwith 95%
N2 and 5% Hj, as described previously.[24] The bottles were capped with butyl-ru^
ber stoppers, crimped and autoclaved at 121°C at 20 psi for min. p
the medium after sterilization was 7.4. , , ,
Metals. 0.2 mM of ferric chloride (FeCl3*6H20), sodium molybdate
(Na^MoOi®2H20), chromic chloride (CrCl3*6H20) and mckelous chlon
(NiCl2*6H20) were separately added to sterile medium. The solutions containing
the metal ions were added to the sterile medium after filtration through a 0.22 nm
filter. The final concentrations of metal ions in the medium are Z A
The pH of the medium after the addition of the metal ions was readjusted to 7.4. A
2 5% v/v inoculum of a 2-day-old culture was used in the experiments.

(bacterial cells and sulfide precipitates) were placed in a desiccator and allowed to
dry under anoxic conditions for two days. The uninoculated samples, which
served as experimental controls, were also analyzed for pH, metals, sulfate and
