Hydrocarbon-degrading bacteria enriched by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill identified by cultivation and DNA-SIP
The massive influx of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico during the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) disaster triggered dramatic microbial community shifts in surface oil slick and deep plume waters. PreviousExpand

Products from the Incomplete Metabolism of Pyrene by Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon-Degrading Bacteria
ABSTRACT Pyrene is a regulated pollutant at sites contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). It is mineralized by some bacteria but is also transformed to nonmineral products by aExpand

Identification and quantification of uncultivated Proteobacteria associated with pyrene degradation in a bioreactor treating PAH-contaminated soil.
Uncultivated bacteria associated with the degradation of pyrene in a bioreactor treating soil contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) were identified by DNA-based stable-isotopeExpand

Competitive metabolism of naphthalene, methylnaphthalenes, and fluorene by phenanthrene-degrading pseudomonads.
Polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) typically exist as complex mixtures in contaminated soils, yet little is known about the biodegradation of PAHs in mixtures. We have isolated twoExpand

Risk taking during decision-making in normal volunteers changes with age.
Risk taking in a large cohort of adults (N = 177; ages 17-73) decreased with age, demonstrated by performance on a computer based gambling task, which has previously been shown to be sensitive toExpand

Waste treatment applications of enzymes: opportunities and obstacles
Abstract The use of enzymes in waste treatment processes has been proposed by a number of investigators. However, most of this work has focused on demonstrating the disappearance of target pollutantsExpand

Characterization of a Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Degradation Gene Cluster in a Phenanthrene-Degrading Acidovorax Strain
ABSTRACT Acidovorax sp. strain NA3 was isolated from polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-contaminated soil that had been treated in a bioreactor and enriched with phenanthrene. The 16S rRNA gene ofExpand

Salicylate stimulates the degradation of high-molecular weight polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons by Pseudomonas saccharophila P15
Pseudomonas saccharophila P15 was isolated from soil contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and previously was reported to degrade a variety of low- and high-molecular weight PAH.Expand

Characteristics of phenanthrene-degrading bacteria isolated from soils contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
Ten bacterial strains were isolated from seven contaminated soils by enrichment with phenanthrene as the sole carbon source. These isolates and another phenanthrene-degrading strain were examined forExpand

Stable-isotope probing of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-degrading bacterial guild in a contaminated soil.
The bacteria responsible for the degradation of naphthalene, phenanthrene, pyrene, fluoranthene or benz[a]anthracene in a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-contaminated soil were investigated byExpand
