As part of our studies into the diversity of dissimilatory
perchlorate reducing bacteria (DPRB) we investigated the
reduction of perchlorate in the cathodic chamber of a
bioelectrical reactor (BER). Our results demonstrated that
washed cells of Dechloromonas and Azospira species
readily reduced 90 mg L-1 perchlorate in the BER with 2,6-
anthraquinone disulfonate (AQDS) as a mediator. No
