Three hydroxylated derivatives of PCBs, 2′-hydroxy-4-chlorobiphenyl (2′-OH-4-CB), 3′-hydroxy-4-chlorobiphenyl (3′-OH-4-CB), and 4′-hydroxy-4-chlorobiphenyl (4′-OH-4-CB), were transformed by the PCB degrader, Burkholderia xenovorans. When the bacterium was growing on biphenyl (biphenyl pathway-inducing conditions), all three hydroxylated isomers were(More)
The polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB)-degrading bacterium, Burkholderia xenovorans LB400, was capable of transforming three hydroxylated derivatives of 2,5-dichlorobiphenyl (2,5-DCB) (2'-hydroxy- (2'-OH-), 3'-OH-, and 4'-OH-2,5-DCB) when biphenyl was used as the carbon source (i.e., biphenyl pathway-inducing condition), although only 2'-OH-2,5-DCB was(More)
