microscopy, we demonstrated a close association of the extracellular UO2 nanoparticles with
MtrC and OmcA. This was the first study to directly localize the OM-associated cytochromes
with extracellular EPS, as a glycocalyx-like structure, which contains biogenic UO2
Although funding for this project has been terminated, we intend to submit a follow up proposal
to further investigate these observations. Specifically, we have observed similar lags in
reduction of Fe in fine-particle lepidocrocite. In addition, past investigations showed that poorly
crystalline ferrihydrite strongly inhibited bioreduction and reoxidized U(IV). To address this
issue, we will propose to investigate longer incubation times, the use of different bacterial strains
(S. putrefaciens CN32, Geobacter spp., and Anaeromyxobacter spp.), and alternative iron
(hydr)oxide thin films for these experiments.
