Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology
"Access to safe water is a fundamental human need and therefore a basic human right" --Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary General
Edited by two world-renowned scientists in the field, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology provides a definitive and comprehensive coverage of water and wastewater microbiology. With contributions from experts from around the world, this book gives a global perspective on the important issues faced in the provision of safe drinking water, the problems of dealing with aquatic pollution and the processes involved in wastewater management.
Starting with an introductory chapter of basic microbiological principles, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology develops these principles further, ensuring that this is the essential text for process engineers with little microbiological experience and specialist microbiologists alike.
Many enzymes, including some involved in protein synthesis, specifically require
potassium. Magnesium functions to stabilize ribosomes, cell membranes and
nucleic acids and is needed for the activity of many enzymes. Trace elements ...
Energy in the form of ATP is needed to power the biosynthesis of many of the
various chemical components of the cell, such as DNA, RNA, enzymes, bacterial
cell wall peptidoglycan, and cell membrane phospholipids. In addition to being ...
The process is catalysed by a cytoplasmic nitrogenase complex consisting of two
enzymes: one enzyme is dinitrogenase, which contains molybdenum and iron (a
MoFe protein); the other enzyme is dinitrogenase reductase, an iron-containing ...
This subsequently becomes integrated into the genome of its host cell. This DNA
copy of the virus RNA is made by an enzyme known as reverse transcriptase
used in many molecular biological techniques. The virus genome encodes the ...
