The process of assimilation of Cu by chromiumresistant bacteria Arthrobacter globiformis 151B and the influence of high-concentration Ca ions on this process have been studied in the article The bacteria are known for their property to assimilate intensively the hexavalent chromium Cr VI ions from the environment to convert them into trivalent form Cr III and to accumulate it in cell This bacterium is also characterized by the absorption of other elements from the nutrient medium The strain of bacteria under investigation was isolated from basalt samples taken from the places highly contaminated by Cr VI in Kazreti Georgia The solutions of the studied elements Cu and of Ca were introduced simultaneously into the nutrient medium We studied the influence of different concentrations of Ca ions during different period of time of bacteria cultivation 17 h 24 h 48h 96h 144h on the process of assimilation of Cu by bacteria Ca concentration in food medium made up 100 mkg ml 400 mkg ml and 1600 mkg ml The concentration of Cu in media was 1 mkg ml For determination of the content of Cu in the cell after the cultivation of bacteria the precipitation of cells by centrifuge and the preparation of the obtained bacterial pellet for the analysis were carried out The content of metals was measured by atom-absorption spectrometry
