Oxidation of elemental selenium to selenite by Bacillus megaterium.

A strain of Bacillus megaterium isolated from soil has been found to oxidize elemental selenium in laboratory cultures to selenite and a trace of selenate (< 1 percent of the selenite). This observation represents an important but hitherto unreported oxidative step in the biological selenium cycle.[1]
