Precipitation of Fe\u3csub\u3e3\u3c/sub\u3eO\u3csub\u3e4\u3c/sub\u3e in Magnetotactic Bacteria

By Richard B. Frankel and Richard P. Blakemore


The magnetotactic bacterium A. magnetotacticum contains ferrous ions, a low density hydrous ferric oxide, a high density hydrous ferric oxide (ferrihydrite) and Fe3O4, which is precipitated by partial reduction of the ferrihydrite precursor
