Biodegradation of 4-(1-nonyl)phenol by axenic cultures of the yeast Candida aquaetextoris: identification of microbial breakdown products and proposal of a possible metabolic pathway
Candida aquaetextoris, a yeast recently described for its ability to use 4-(1-nonyl)phenol (pNP) as the sole carbon and energy source in aerobic conditions, has been studied in order to determine theExpand
