Nitroaromatic compounds are toxic to living organisms. Most of them exhibit human mutagenic and carcinogenic potential. Biotransformation and bioremediation processes can convert these compounds into non-toxic compounds. Acclimatization of bacterial strain Aquiflexum sp. DL6 with nitro-aromatics resulted in significant induction of nitroreductase (EC(More)
Azo dyes and nitro-aromatic compounds are the largest group of pollutants released in the environment as industrial wastes. They create serious health and environmental problems. Azoreductases catalyze the reduction of azo dyes and nitro compounds to their respective amines. AN azoreductase was purified up to 12-fold from Lysinibacillus sphaericus using(More)
Azoreductase plays a key role in bioremediation and biotransformation of azo dyes. It initializes the reduction of azo bond in azo dye metabolism under aerobic or anaerobic conditions. In the present study, we isolated an alkaliphilic red-colored Aquiflexum sp. DL6 bacterial strain and identified by 16S rRNA method. We report nicotinamide adenine(More)
