The strain Streptomyces rochei 303 (VKM Ac-1284D) is capable of utilizing 2-chloro-,2,4-,2,6-dichloro- and 2,4,6-trichlorophenols as the sole source of carbon. Its resting cells completely dechlorinated and degraded 2-, 3-chloro-; 2,4-, 2,6-, 2,3-, 2,5-, 3,4-, 3,5-dichloro-; 2,4-, 2,6-dibromo-; 2,4,6-, 2,4,5-, 2,3,4-, 2,3,5-, 2,3,6-trichlorophenols;(More)
Methoxychlor was found to be sufficiently persistent in soil and its residues were present even 18 months after the soil treatment. Saprophytes, fungi and actinomyces were unaffected by varying concentrations of methoxychlor, azotobacter however was susceptable. Soil strains isolated did not utilize methoxychlor as a sole carbon source except for 9 cultures(More)
Degradation of continuously added 3-chlorobenzoate (3-CB) was studied in samples of chernozem soil. Soil columns were inoculated withPseudomonas putida growing on 3-CB and carrying the biodegradation plasmid and withPseudomonas aeruginosa incapable of growth on 3-CB and carrying the inserted biodegradation plasmid pBS 2 determining ortho-cleavage of the(More)
The possibility of complete degradation of DDT by Pseudomonas aeruginosa 640x was demonstrated in principle. A study of the conditions of degradation of DDT by this culture was made. It was demonstrated that only dechlorination of DDT to DDD is accomplished without addition of a supplementary substrate. The rest of the processes right up to the formation of(More)
It was found in field, and laboratory experiments that of 50 ppm of the herbicide bromoxynil (3,5-dibromo-4-hydroxybenzonitrile added to grey forest soil 20-80% were still detected after three months). Bromoxynil did not influence (except for a short-termed stimulation of the number of bacteria) the amount and composition of the basic groups of soil(More)
A Nocardioides simplex strain 3E was isolated which totally dechlorinated 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid and was capable of its utilization as the sole source of carbon. The mechanism of 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid degradation by this strain was investigated. Chloroaromatic metabolites that occur in the lag, exponential and stationary growth phases(More)
The aim of this study was to study the degradation of kelthane by Pseudomonas aeruginosa BS827, which carried the plasmid pBS3. This plasmid encodes naphthalene oxidation. The strain was able to survive in the presence of kelthane and to retain its degradative ability. Kelthane also stabilized the biodegradative plasmid that was preserved by 70 to 100% of(More)
