Arsenate and selenate reductases

In arsenate and selenate respiring bacteria, the oxidation of organic substrates acetate, lactate, pyruvate, glycerol, ethanol or hydrogen can be coupled to the reduction of arsenate and selenate. Arsenate and selenate reductases have been characterized; they all contain molybdenum.
