Pseudomonas sp. N31 was isolated from soil using 3-nitrophenol and succinate as sole source of nitrogen and carbon respectively. The strain expresses a nitrophenol oxygenase and can use either 2-nitrophenol or 4-chloro-2-nitrophenol as a source of nitrogen, eliminating nitrite, and accumulating catechol and 4-chlorocatechol, respectively. The catechols were(More)
BACKGROUND Metal borides are a class of inorganic solids that is much less known and investigated than for example metal oxides or intermetallics. At the same time it is a highly versatile and interesting class of compounds in terms of physical and chemical properties, like semiconductivity, ferromagnetism, or catalytic activity. This makes these substances(More)
Both Alcaligenes eutrophus JMP 134 and its plasmid-free derivative Alcaligenes eutrophus JMP 222 utilize 2,6-dinitrophenol as sole source of carbon, energy, and nitrogen. In the presence of ammonia resting cells of these strains release two mol of nitrite per mol of 2,6-dinitrophenol. Alcaligenes eutrophus JMP 222-α1D, a mutant of strain JMP 222 obtained by(More)
