A highly purified enrichment culture couples the reductive dechlorination of tetrachloroethene to growth.
A microscopically pure enrichment culture of a gram-negative anaerobic bacterium, in the present article referred to as PER-K23, was isolated from an anaerobic packed-bed column in whichExpand

Electrophoretic mobility and hydrophobicity as a measured to predict the initial steps of bacterial adhesion.
The relationship between physiochemical surface parameters and adhesion of bacterial cells to negatively charged polystyrene was studied. Cell surface hydrophobicity and electrokinetic potential wereExpand

The role of bacterial cell wall hydrophobicity in adhesion.
In this study, the adhesion of bacteria differing in surface hydrophobicity was investigated. Cell wall hydrophobicity was measured as the contact angle of water on a bacterial layer collected on aExpand

Enrichment and properties of an anaerobic mixed culture reductively dechlorinating 1,2,3-trichlorobenzene to 1,3-dichlorobenzene.
Hexachlorobenzene (HCB), pentachlorobenzene (QCB), all three isomers of tetrachlorobenzene (TeCB), 1,2,3-trichlorobenzene (1,2,3-TCB), and 1,2,4-TCB were reductively dechlorinated by enrichmentExpand

Reductive dechlorination of β‐hexachlorocyclohexane (β‐HCH) by a Dehalobacter species in coculture with a Sedimentibacter sp.
An anaerobic coculture was enriched from a hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) polluted soil. The coculture reductively dechlorinates the β-HCH isomer to benzene and chlorobenzene in a ratio of 0.5–2Expand
