Microbes can be used to tackle many contemporary environmental issues
Microbes can be used to tackle many contemporary environmental issues: Heavy metal contamination. Oxidised to mercuric ion: Hg2+. Enters into aquatic environments - adsorbs to particulate matter. Metabolism by microorganisms results in methylation: CH3Hg+. Methyl-mercury binds to sulfhydryl groups (primarily cysteine amino acid residues). Acts as a molecular mimic to methionine so is distributed throughout the body.
