Abstract: In oxygen-limited environments, denitrifying bacteria can switch from oxygen-dependent respiration to nitrate (NO3-) respiration in which the NO3- is sequentially reduced via nitrite (NO2-), nitric oxide (NO) and nitrous oxide (N2O) to dinitrogen (N2). However, atmospheric N2O continues to rise, a significant proportion of which is microbial in origin. This implies that the enzyme responsible for N2O reduction, nitrous oxide reductase (NosZ), does not always carry out the final step of denitrification either e…
