Bacteria have both beneficial and harmful effects on human being as well as other organism present in the ecosystem. In order to evaluate their beneficial part and level harmfulness we need to isolation, characterization and identification of the bacterial consortium spreaded around us and subsequently necessary to go further for their assessment whether they behooveful or injurious for ecosystem and especially with respect to human being.
Iron most often is present in two oxidation states namely ferric (Fe3+) and ferrous (Fe2+). Ferrous is soluble (biologically available) form of iron for biotic community whereas ferric is present as insoluble (biologically not available) oxide and hydroxide form of iron. Microorganisms release siderophores to scavenge iron from these oxide and hydroxide (mineral phases) by formation of soluble ferric ion complexes that can be taken up by biotic community via active transport mechanisms as a micronutrient.
Hydrogenase (EC-188.8.131.52) is enzymes that belongs to oxidoreductase family and actively participate in catalysis of reversible reduction of proton to hydrogen molecule. This enzyme possesses keen scope towards the biological hydrogen production.
Hydrogen could be produced by biomass gasification, biomass-derived liquid reforming, natural gas reforming, coal gasification, thermo-chemical water splitting, electrolysis, photo-biological and microbial biomass conversion. Presently at commercial level natural gas reforming methods are applied globally but gives off greenhouse gases during production. Currently scientists are concerned with global warming, so from this standpoint this is to be overcome by eco-friendly means of hydrogen production.
Lignocellulosic biomass (LCB) could be used as renewable and sustainable source for production of reducing sugars. These sugars can further be converted into different kinds of value added products including bio-fuels, butanol and organic acid via microbial fermentation.
