A colleague of mine claimed that he has seen a recent paper regarding the
use of iron(II) as a primary electron donor in purple non-sulphur iron
bacteria.  Is anyone aware of such a publication or any information that
may relate iron(II) to these orgainsms other than the presence of iron in
the quinone elements of the redox chain?  If so I would grateful if you
could inform me of such activity by e-mail.

   thanks in advance,
