Screening of bacteria, isolated from PAH-contaminated soils, for production of biosurfactants and bioemulsifiers
Fifty-seven bacterial strains were isolated from PAH-contaminated soils using PAH-amended minimal medium. The isolates were screened for their production of biosurfactants and bioemulsifiers whenExpand

Kinetics of degradation of surfctant-solubilized fluoranthene by a Sphingomonas paucimobilis
To achieve a better quantitative understanding of the stimulating or inhibiting effect of surfactants on the metabolism of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), a biodegradation model describingExpand

Bioaugmentation of tar-contaminated soils under field conditions using Pleurotus ostreatus refuse from commercial mushroom production.
The influence of the white rot fungus Pleurotus ostreatus on the degradation of selected poly- and heterocyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (referred to as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons [PAHs]) in soilExpand

Response of fluoranthene-degrading bacteria to surfactants
Abstract A prerequisite for surfactant-enhanced biodegradation is that the microorganisms survive, take up substrate and degrade it in the presence of the surfactant. Two Mycobacterium and twoExpand

Mycobacterium frederiksbergense sp. nov., a novel polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-degrading Mycobacterium species.
A polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-degrading bacterium isolated from coal tar-contaminated soil in Denmark was characterized by a polyphasic approach. Phylogenetically and chemotaxonomically, it wasExpand

Isolation and taxonomic affiliation of N-heterocyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-transforming bacteria
The azaarenes (nitrogen-containing heterocyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) are products of incomplete combustion processes and thus are widely distributed with tar and oil products in the environment.Expand

Degradation of phenanthrene-analogue azaarenes by Mycobacterium gilvum strain LB307T under aerobic conditions
Abstract. A polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon degrading Mycobacterium gilvum, strain LB307T, was able to degrade the azaarenes 5,6-benzoquinoline, 7,8-benzoquinoline, and phenanthridineExpand

Effect of calcium on the surfactant tolerance of a fluoranthene degrading bacterium
Surfactants are known to increase the apparent aqueous solubility of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and may thus be used to enhance the bioavailability and thereby to stimulate theExpand
