Introduction
While regarded as a relatively new form of microbial metabolism, our
understanding of the perchlorate reduction pathway has progressed
dramatically in the last five years. Genetic analyses have offered the first
glimpse into the enzyme encoding genes integral to perchlorate metabolism as
well as putative regulation targets. This genomic analysis has also offered
tools for detecting and monitoring dissimilatory perchlorate-reducing bacteria
for bioremediative purposes. Mimicking the physiological diversity of these
