The ability of alkalophilic bacteria to remove iron, gallium and aluminium from culture media is reported. Of six bacterial strains grown in the presence of iron, gallium or aluminium (10-mu-M), five were able to accumulate iron or gallium, but only two depleted the aluminium stock. A comparison of gallium removal under low (< 1-mu-M) or high (10-mu-M) iron conditions showed that two isolates accumulated gallium only under low-Fe conditions. One isolate, a coryneform bacterium, was able to grow in the presence of 1, 10 and 100 mg gallium/1, but growth and siderophore production were affected at high gallium concentration. Similar concentrations of gallium were accumulated from cultures initially containing 1 or 10 mg gallium/1.
