This oxidation may be carried out through two metabolic routes: one which is present only in fungi, and another, very similar to autotrophic nitrification, in which heterotrophic microorganisms have an ammonium-monooxygenase enzyme, and one hydroxylamine oxidoreductase, similar to the autotrophic route, which oxidizes ammonium in a secondary manner, since these enzymes evolved to oxidize compounds such as propylene, benzene, phenol, methanol, and any other non-polar organic compound that serves as a source of carbon and energy (Bitton, 2005; Eldor, 2007).
