This is the first report on the degradation of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB), and its copolymers poly(3-hydroxyvalerate) P(3HB-co-10-20% HV) by Nocardiopsis aegyptia, a new species isolated from marine seashore sediments. The strain excreted an extracellular PHB depolymerase and grew efficiently on PHB or its copolymers as the sole carbon sources. The(More)
The current study aimed to isolate and characterize a chromate-resistant bacterium from tannery effluent, able to reduce Cr(VI) aerobically at high pH and salinity. Environmental contamination by hexavalent chromium, Cr(VI), presents a serious public health problem. Enrichment led to the isolation of 12 bacteria displaying different degrees of chromate(More)
