Biodegradation of high-molecular-weight polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons by bacteria.
Interest in the biodegradation mechanisms and environmental fate of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) is prompted by their ubiquitous distribution and their potentially deleterious effects onExpand

Predominant growth of Alcanivorax strains in oil-contaminated and nutrient-supplemented sea water.
We found that bacteria closely related to Alcanivorax became a dominant bacterial population in petroleum-contaminated sea water when nitrogen and phosphorus nutrients were supplied in adequateExpand
