|Abstract:||Desulfovibrio desulfuricans was the first species of a sulphatereducing bacterium to be isolated, in 1895. Since that time, many questions were raised in the scientific community regarding the metabolic and ecological aspects of these bacteria. At present, there is still a myriad of open questions remaining to be answered to enlarge our knowledge of the metabolic pathways operative in these bacteria that have implications in the sulfur cycle, in biocorrosion, namely in sewers and in oil and gas systems, and in bioremediation of several toxic metals. The work presented in this dissertation aimed at contributing with new insights of enzymes involved in two different metabolic systems on Desulfovibrio species, namely enzymes that play a role in the response to oxidative stress and that are involved in the haem biosynthetic pathway.(...)|
