    I am taking micro311 , microbial physiology
    and we were given an assignment to complete this weekend.
    I am struggling with it, if you could help that would be great!

    I am mostly concerned with question 2. So far, I've answered that the pathway would be aerobic because it uses electrons from cytochrome c oxidase and O2 as a TEA and reactant with methane mono-oxygenase (which adds oxygen to methane to form methanol).

    I would see question 2 as anaerobic since I don't see free O2 on the left side of the equation. Mind you I am 40years out of school. It does involve the oxidization of CH4 but the source of the o2 is from the break down of a nitrate.
