Optimization of simultaneous removal of Cr (VI) and phenol by a native bacterial consortium: its use for bioaugmentation of co‐polluted effluents
This study was designed to isolate, identify and characterize micro‐organisms or mixed cultures capable of simultaneously removing Cr (VI) and phenol in the surrounding area of a tannery localized inExpand

A thermostable GH8 endoglucanase of Enterobacter sp. R1 is suitable for β-glucan deconstruction.
Glycoside hydrolase family 8 (GH8) includes endoglucanases, lichenases, chitosanases and xylanases, which are essential for polysaccharides breakdown. In this work, we studied a thermally stable GH8Expand

Rhizoremediation of phenol and chromium by the synergistic combination of a native bacterial strain and Brassica napus hairy roots
Abstract A bacterial strain resistant to phenol and Cr (VI) was isolated from an industrial polluted soil of Cordoba province (Argentina), which was identified as Pantoea sp. FC 1. This microorganismExpand
