aerobic respiration, using carbon monoxide as electron donor
name: aerobic respiration, using carbon monoxide as electron donor
Description: The metabolic process in which carbon monoxide (CO) is oxidized to carbon dioxide (CO2) to generate energy. Conservation of energy in this process likely uses sodium ion gradients for ATP synthesis and is coupled to quantitative sulfide methylation.
