Dibenzofuran 4,4a-dioxygenase from Sphingomonas sp. strain RW1: angular dioxygenation by a three-component enzyme system
The reaction was thus the dioxygenation of DBF at the 4 and 4a positions to give a diene-diol-hemiacetal which rearomatized by spontaneous loss of a phenolate group to form THB.
Anaerobic dechlorination of tetrachloromethane and 1,2-dichloroethane to degradable products by pure cultures of Desulfobacterium sp. and Methanobacterium sp.
Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum grew autotrophically and Desulfobacterium autotrophicum grew heterotrophically in the presence of one of several highly chlorinated aliphatic hydrocarbons in the
Orthanilic Acid and Analogues as Carbon Sources for Bacteria: Growth Physiology and Enzymic Desulphonation
Summary: Carbon-limited aerobic batch enrichment cultures were grown and 17 bacteria able to degrade orthanilic acid (2-aminobenzenesulphonic acid), sulphanilic acid, sulphonamide, 4-sulphobenzoic
Mineralization of Individual Congeners of Linear Alkylbenzenesulfonate by Defined Pairs of Heterotrophic Bacteria
A pattern of products confirmed that LAS is degraded by ω-oxygenation and chain shortening through β-oxidation, and at least nine major SPCs were formed from commercial LAS.
s-Triazines as nitrogen sources for bacteria
Isolation of bacteria able to utilize s-triazines as the sole and limiting nitrogen sources for growth is described. Three strains of Pseudomonas (A, D, and F) and two strains of Klebsiella
Biodegration of s-triazine xenobiotics
Biodegradation of xenobiotic compounds is examined with s-triazines as an example and with biological treatment of wastewater containing s-triazines as an aim. s-Triazines have been termed
Castellaniella gen. nov., to accommodate the phylogenetic lineage of Alcaligenes defragrans, and proposal of Castellaniella defragrans gen. nov., comb. nov. and Castellaniella denitrificans sp. nov.
On the basis of data from the literature and new DNA-DNA hybridization and phenotypic data, the novel species Castellaniella denitrificans sp.
Phosphorus-containing pesticide breakdown products: quantitative utilization as phosphorus sources by bacteria
Bacteria were isolated that could utilize representatives of the following ionic phosphorus-containing breakdown products of organophosphorus pesticides as sole phosphorus sources and this is the first report of the utilization of an ionic dialkyl thioph phosphate or dithiophosphate by microorganisms.
Enantiomeric Degradation of 2-(4-Sulfophenyl)Butyrate via 4-Sulfocatechol in Delftia acidovorans SPB1
Metabolism of the model LAS does not represent metabolism of commercial linear alkylbenzenesulfonate (LAS) surfactant, which is subterminally substituted but nontoxic.
Microbial degradation of xenobiotics
microbial degradation of xenobiotics What to say and what to do when mostly your friends love reading? Are you the one that don't have such hobby? So, it's important for you to start having that
