New publication: “Selenium respiration in anaerobic bacteria: Does energy generation pay off?”

The final version of our article “Selenium respiration in anaerobic bacteria: Does energy generation pay off?” (here) published by Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry is online. Dr Staicu and prof. Larry Barton critically discuss the implications of anaerobic respiration based on selenium in phylogenetically-diverse bacteria.

This review article provides an in-depth analysis of selenium respiration (model selenium respiring bacteria, thermodynamics, respiratory enzymes, and genetic determinants), complemented by an extensive discussion about the evolutionary implications and the properties of biogenic Se0.
