Nonylphenol (NP) is an important intermediate in the production of various commercial and industrial materials, but is also known as a ubiquitous pollutant in urban aquatic environments. We recently studied the NP-degrading activities of microflora in several aquatic environments, and found a notable degrading activity for wastewater from a sewage treatment(More)
A 17beta-estradiol (E2)-degrading bacterium was isolated from activated sludge in a sewage treatment plant in Tokyo, Japan. The isolate was suggested to be a new Novosphingobium species. Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry and (1)H nuclear magnetic resonance analyses of the metabolites of E2 degradation suggested that no toxic products accumulated in the(More)
