Comments Fischer et al., (primary source) successfully purified the hydrogenase of A. ferrooxidans from the cells grown with hydrogen. In this case, the final cell concentration reached 4?10^9 cells/ml. This result indicated that the maximum cell concentration could be enhanced by hydrogen cultivation.
