Details on the Descriptive data on simultaneous nitrification and denitrification of hypersaline wastewater by a robust bacterium Halomonas salifodinae
The data present the salt tolerance of strain Y5 at different salinities (0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20%). The effect of salinity on the morphology of bacteria was observed by scanning electron microscope. The influence of culture conditions including carbon source, C/N ratio, initial pH value, temperature, and shaking speed on bacterial growth and nitrogen removal capability of strain Y5 was investigated by single factor experiments. The enzymatic activities of ammonia monooxygenase (AMO), hydroxylamine oxidase (HAO), nitrite reductase (NIR), and periplasm nitrate reductase (NAP) were measured by extracting the cell-free crude enzymes from strain Y5.
